(NaturalHealth365) With over 25 percent of American adults over age 40 currently taking statin drugs to lower cholesterol, it’s clear to see that these medications are capable of yielding astronomical profits for Big Pharma. In 2019 alone, for example, Lipitor (atorvastatin) generated a stunning $2 billion dollars in revenue for its manufacturer, Pfizer.
While statin medications are lavishly endorsed and prescribed by Western medicine, natural health experts have long cautioned of toxic side effects – and clinical research exists to back them up. Let’s take a look at ten unwanted adverse effects from statin drugs, along with some nutrients that can help manage cholesterol naturally. →

(Natural News) The myth that cholesterol is somehow toxic to the human body has greatly enriched the pharmaceutical industry, generating profits to the tune of billions for drug companies that mass market their cholesterol-lowering statin drugs to heart patients. But it’s important to remember that science doesn’t actually support this farce, and in fact shows that cholesterol is good for the human body, helping to decrease mortality. →

Cholesterol is a waxy substance found in nearly every cell of your body, vital for optimal functioning. For instance, your body uses cholesterol in the construction of cell membranes and in regulating protein pathways required for cell signaling. Without sufficient amounts of cholesterol in your body you may experience a negative impact on your brain health, hormone levels and heart disease risk.

Once marketed by Bayer as “The wonder drug that works wonders,” aspirin’s profound toxicity and potentially deadly side effects can no longer be hidden from the public. New cardiovascular disease prevention guidelines submitted jointly by the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Associated and published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology contradict decades of routine medical advice by explicitly advising against the daily use of low-dose or baby aspirin (75-100 mg) as a preventive health strategy against stroke or heart attack, in most cases:

(NaturalHealth365) Statistics on heart disease – the number one killer in the nation – are truly disturbing, with the U.S. CDC reporting that the condition claims the lives of roughly 610,000 Americans every year. In addition, a shocking 5.1 million people in the United States are affected by heart failure.
With the odds of surviving past the five-year mark currently standing at 50 percent, it’s clear that more effective prevention and treatment options are needed.

(NaturalHealth365) Over the last 100 years, cardiovascular disease has become a top cause of death in the United States (as well as many other places in the Western world), claiming millions of lives through fatal events such as a heart attack and stroke. But, conventionally speaking, the cause of heart attacks – in particular – remain a ‘mystery’ to millions of people … until now.
While Western medicine attempts to treat the current epidemic of heart disease with a host of drugs – including beta blockers and statin drugs – these medications fail to address the root cause of the disease, and (many times) offer toxic side effects.
German doctor and researcher Matthias Rath, M.D., says he has discovered the real reason for heart disease, and believes that it can be prevented – and treated – with ‘Cellular Medicine.’

(Natural News) One out of every five Americans has been convinced to take a statin drug in order to lower their blood cholesterol levels and supposedly prevent heart disease. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) admit that statin drug use is on the rise; Atorvastatin (Lipitor) is the best-selling prescription drug in the world. The problem with statin drugs is they cause memory loss, learning difficulties, muscle wasting, rapid aging, irritability, and mental health issues. Peer reviewed research also indicates that almost half of all women who religiously take statins ultimately develop diabetes.
