Statin Drugs Video
From the BOUGHT Movie Website
Here’s a little video (5 minutes I think) about statin drugs.
Statins are prescribed for inflammation, even though the drug harms your muscles.
Inflammation is caused by poor diet, especially eating too much sugar. (Remember that grains and white carbs turn into sugar–so eat them in moderation.)
Why not just change your diet?
It amazes me that in the face of all the evidence of the dangers statins pose that docs still prescribe them.
I think some docs are profitting, but I also think if docs don’t follow the “standards of care,” which include statins, they can be and are punished. So it is up to us to be informed consumers. As has been true from the beginning of medicine, there are some caring wonderful docs and some who are just leaches on society. And it’s harder than ever telling who is who.
There is a lot of info on statins on this blog, including the work of Dr. Stefanie Seneff, who runs a research team out of MIT.
