Would it surprise you that a study in Sweden* has proven that yet another American “drug” doesn’t work?
That study was published in 2013.
Why are we still using these drugs if they knew years ago that they weren’t that affective? As science and technology evolve, I don’t think that these older drugs are keeping up with the times.
The study data was collected from 1998-2000 on 3,922,094 Swedes who were using statins. The dose was increased over the study period, and the results showed that the statin drugs, even when increased, provided no benefit in preventing heart attacks.

These days, politics are involved within medicine, and this is very damaging in my opinion. I discovered through my aspartame research that politics skews good research results.
As a result of this meddling, the best research now comes from outside of the USA where Big Pharma lobbyists can’t operate.
Global scientists have proven over and over again what American researchers can’t seem to figure out – like aspartame is harmful to human health, that GMOs are harmful to ALL plants and animals, and now, that statins really don’t work.
A pattern appears that research studies done outside of the United States show that American drugs, American food chemicals, and GMOs are toxic, and this exposes the reality that big USA corporations are flawed, and they hire PR firms that promote safety claims that are not credible.
See a pattern?
What Are Statins
Statins are a class of drugs that attempt to lower blood cholesterol levels by blocking the enzymes in the liver that are responsible for making cholesterol.
High cholesterol levels contribute to the development of atherosclerosis, a condition in which cholesterol-containing plaques form within arteries. These plaques can block the arteries and reduce the flow of blood. If the plaques rupture, a blood clot forms on the plaque and further blocks the artery and the flow of blood.
If the blood supply to the heart is reduced, then a heart attack can occur. If the blood supply to the brain is reduced, then a stroke can occur.
I have noticed two main things about statins:
- you always seem to need more of them over time, and at higher and higher doses;
- if you are over 70, they are automatically prescribed for you.
The most common statins prescribed are Levacor®, Zocor®, Pravachol®, Lipitor®, and Crestor®.
Another study at Key Laboratory of Endocrinology, Ministry of Health, Peking and Union Medical College Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, Beijing, China found that 17 percent of patients taking statins reported side effects, including muscle pain, nausea, and problems with the liver and nervous system.
Before starting on statins, I recommend first trying Nature’s statin – B3 niacin, and yes, there are studies to support the health benefits of B3.
Niacin is one of the B-Complex vitamins, and has long been used to increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL), “good” cholesterol.
HDL cholesterol helps sweep up the “bad” cholesterol [low-density lipoprotein (LDL)] and triglycerides from your bloodstream. Although niacin is readily available and effective, it hasn’t gotten much attention compared to statin drugs.
Hum, I wonder why …. $$$$$$ ?
