Statin Scam Exposed: Cholesterol Drugs Cause Rapid Aging, Brain Damage And Diabetes

Statins are a treatment prescribed in the case of high “bad” cholesterol levels, as a way to reduce them and support heart health.
However, a recent study has shown that they are far more harmful than beneficial. Statin drugs, like Crestor, Lipitor, and Zocor, are often prescribed, and only in the United States, more than $374 billion are spent on them in the year 2014.
They are quite expensive, but consumers should worry about much more than the price.
According to a study published in the American Journal of Physiology, statins “…impact on other biologic properties of stem cells provides a novel explanation for their adverse clinical effects.
“ Hence, the side effects of these drugs include accelerated “process of aging” and the “…long-term use of statins has been associated with adverse effects including myopathy, neurological side effects and an increased risk of diabetes.” Myopathy is a condition of skeletal muscle weakness.
Moreover, researchers have found the health issues caused by statins have been downplayed recently. People taking statins often experience muscle pain, memory loss, fatigue, liver damage, and cataracts.
Also, statins wreak havoc in cells as they obstruct the repair process of the body. As stated by the professor Reza Izadpanah, a stem cell biologist and lead author of the published study,
“Our study shows statins may speed up the aging process. People who use statins as a preventative medicine for [health] should think again as our research shows they may have general unwanted effects on the body which could include muscle pai Continue reading

Blueberries Pack A Preventive Punch Against Diabetes and Heart Disease

Blueberries Pack A Preventive Punch Against Diabetes and Heart Disease

In the fight against metabolic syndrome (MetS), type 2 diabetes and heart disease, we mere humans can turn to a mighty superhero for help: wild blueberries.
This is excellent news since approximately 37 percent of people in the U.S. are at risk for MetS, a precursor for health problems such as diabetes and heart trouble.
MetS and Blueberries
Risk factors for MetS include high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol, obesity, high blood pressure and elevated blood glucose. These risks can be reduced by changes in diet such as eliminating refined foods and hydrogenated fats, and eating more lean proteins, monounsaturated fats and superfoods like wild blueberries.
Blueberries wield the weapon of polyphenols called anthocyanins – plant chemicals that provide a protective array of health benefits, such as lowering our risk for Alzheimer’s disease and some types of cancer. Researchers at the University of Maine confirmed that regular consumption of wild blueberries may prevent or improve MetS associated pathologies, including diabetes and cardiovascular illnesses.
The Blueberry Research
Obese rats with metabolic syndrome – known to closely mimic MetS in humans – were fed the equivalent of two cups of wild blueberries each day for eight weeks. This enhanced the rats' blood pressure and circulation as the balance between constricting and relaxing elements in their blood vessel walls improved.
Said researcher Dr. Klimis-Zaca:
Our recent findings documented that wild blueberries reduce chronic inflammation and improve the abnormal lipid profile and gene expression associated with Continue reading

Heal Pain Caused By Inflammation And Prevent Type-2 Diabetes With Turmeric Tea!

Heal Pain Caused By Inflammation And Prevent Type-2 Diabetes With Turmeric Tea!

The benefits of turmeric are well documented. It is one of the best ways of fighting inflammation and preventing disease and illness that have been linked to inflammation. But there is evidence now that it even has the power to prevent Type-2 diabetes in people who are severely at risk of developing this disease.
Before I jump into that, I want to give you a little bit of background as to why I am a huge advocate of using turmeric in your everyday diet.
My Time With Turmeric
Since I was younger, I always enjoyed playing soccer. I grew up in a family that really enjoyed watching it and playing it, and during the summer whenever we had family gatherings the kids and parents would always kick the ball around.
But around the time I turned 17, I started to experience a pain in my right knee that I had never experienced before. At first I thought it was because of a bad tackle that took me down hard. I played through the pain and as soon as the game was done, I was icing my knee and eventually the pain and swelling went down.
This happened a few more weeks, every time it was during a game and I thought that it was just a flare up of the old injury. So I kept playing and I kept icing my knee, but after each game I would have to ice it for longer and longer until the pain and swelling went away.
After the season ended, I forgot about my knee pain – I guess you can say ignorance is bliss. But it didn’t last long and the pain returned and I couldn’t figure out why. I went to the doctor and after a series of tests, he determined that I had developed tendonitis in my knee. I coul Continue reading

How to Eat Pasta With Diabetes

How to Eat Pasta With Diabetes

A diabetes diagnosis doesn't mean that your favorite pasta dishes are off-limits forever.
Yet it's important to know how to safely eat pasta without going overboard on your carbohydrate limit and putting your blood sugar in danger.
Nowadays, there are many pasta options that are better for diabetics, and that may even offer nutritional benefits like protein.
Portion control
The biggest thing to remember when eating pasta is portion control. The American Diabetes Association recommends no more than one cup of pasta per meal, which is equal to about 45 grams of carbohydrates.
If you're eating pasta for dinner, for example, try to avoid other carbohydrate-rich foods, like starchy vegetables, bread or sweetened beverages.
Types of pasta
When choosing what type of pasta to eat, try to opt for whole-wheat or whole-grain pasta varieties, as these are not stripped of their nutrients the way white pasta is, and they are slower to digest (which means more stable blood sugar control).
Brown rice pasta or quinoa pasta may also work for diabetics, the latter of which is high in protein. However, check labels and be mindful again of your portion control.
In general, look for pastas that are high in fiber and with no added sugars. Low-carb pasta is also available in some stores.
Pasta alternatives
Enjoying pasta can also be done without actual pasta noodles. Plenty of low-carb pasta alternatives are available, including: spaghetti squash, which you can bake and then shred the flesh of the fruit to create noodle-like strands; shiritaki noodles, which are found in the refrigerator area of m Continue reading
