Cholesterol Drugs (Statins) Linked To Diabetes, Brain Damage & Much More
What’s the deal with Cholesterol? Good, bad, both, myth? Perhaps it is a myth, something that’s been made into a problem so pharmaceutical companies can keep raking in the cash? Statins alone generate billions of dollars a year. The important point to take note of is the fact that Statins, drugs designed to lower ones cholesterol, are one of the biggest drugs prescribed to patients, and one of the biggest earners for pharmaceutical companies, which is concerning.
Why is it concerning? Because over the years, it’s become more and more difficult for people to trust pharmaceutical companies for several different reasons. Whether it’s about studies that continue to expose the harmful effects of various drugs, or the chief editors of Major Medical journals like Dr. Richard Horton (editor in chief of the Lancet )”blowing the whistle,” so to speak, there is large .

Now, a new study recently published in the American Journal of Physiology, states that statins the adverse effects of statins advance the process of aging, and points out that long term use of stats have been associated with several serious adverse health effects including myopathy (skeletal muscle weakness), neurological side effects and an increased risk of diabetes.”
The study outlines the negative effect statins have on mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), and how they also impaired the expression of DNA repair genes which, the authors believe, proved a “novel explanation for their adverse clinical effects.”
We know that that the ability of these cells to differentiate isn’t good, and stat Continue reading
