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

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

Statins, the widely prescribed class of drugs said to lower “bad” cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart problems, has recently come under fire after a study revealed that they destroy human health more than they work to improve it.
Sadly, many people take statin drugs, which are commonly known by brand names including Lipitor, Crestor and Zocor. Prescription drug spending in the U.S. shot up to about $374 billion in 2014, representing the highest level of spending since 2001. Statins undoubtedly made up a significant portion of this spending, and now consumers who take such drugs have much more to worry about than the dent it’s making in their wallets.
The study, which was published in the American Journal of Physiology, states that statins’ “…impact on other biologic properties of stem cells provides a novel explanation for their adverse clinical effects.” Specifically, the study states that such adverse effects include advancing the “process of aging” and also notes that “…long-term use of statins has been associated with adverse effects including myopathy, neurological side effects and an increased risk of diabetes.” Myopathy refers to skeletal muscle weakness.
Experts involved in the study suggest that the health problems associated with statins have likely been downplayed through the years. In reality, those taking such cholesterol-lowering drugs have been experiencing cataracts, fatigue, liver problems, muscle pain and memory loss. Simply put, the drugs have been found to tamper with cells in such a way that their primary purpose of reproduc Continue reading

Family: Mumia Abu-Jamal treated for diabetes complications

Family: Mumia Abu-Jamal treated for diabetes complications

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) --
Family members and supporters of Mumia Abu-Jamal say the former death row inmate was rushed to a Pennsylvania hospital to be treated for complications from diabetes.
Abu-Jamal's wife, brother and lawyers spoke Tuesday outside Schuylkill Medical Center in Pottsville, where he was taken Monday for treatment.
They say his blood sugar was dangerously high and he could have slipped into a diabetic coma.
Abu-Jamal is a former Black Panther serving life in prison for the 1981 murder of white Philadelphia Officer Daniel Faulkner. His conviction was upheld through years of appeals, but he has gained international support for his claim that he's the victim of a racist justice system.
His family is complaining that state prison officials failed to provide him with proper medical care. Continue reading

Newer diabetes drugs linked to pancreatitis

Newer diabetes drugs linked to pancreatitis

Safety concerns over two popular diabetes drugs now include pancreatitis, a painful digestive condition.
The drugs, marketed as Byetta and Januvia, are used by millions of people with diabetes, but they might pose harmful side effects that weren't shown during clinical trials.
JAMA study shows pancreatitis risk
A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Internal Medicine found the link between pancreatitis and the diabetes drugs after analyzing data from Blue Cross Blue Shield health plan claims.
The likelihood of being hospitalized for pancreatitis within 60 days of taking the drugs doubled for these patients, with the risk being highest within four to 14 days after starting the medications.
Symptoms
Pancreatitis symptoms can often be mistaken for digestive issues. Things to watch out for are pain in the upper abdomen, nausea, vomiting and especially pain after eating meals.
Risk for pancreatitis can be genetic, and chronic pancreatic inflammation can raise the risk for cancer. High triglyceride levels, gallstone and abdominal surgery can also be risk factors.
The diabetes drugs in question seem to produce lesions in the pancreas, which leads to inflammation. Experts recommend consulting with your doctor if you are currently taking either of the drugs.

Type 2 diabetes is different from type 1 diabetes in many ways. As its alternate name of adult-onset diabetes implies, it is usually only found in adults. However, the rate of children acquiring the disease is going up.
Type 2 diabetes is also known as non-insulin dependent diab Continue reading

After Battling Type 2 Diabetes, My Lab Results Improved Dramatically in Just Six Weeks

After Battling Type 2 Diabetes, My Lab Results Improved Dramatically in Just Six Weeks

I never had a weight problem until I turned 20 and put on a few extra pounds. I then dieted for the next 33 years of my life. I was on the cabbage diet, celery diet, boiled egg diet, toast diet, SlimFast diet, and many others through the years. I mostly just starved myself.
In 2010, I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. My cardiologist put me on high blood pressure medicine, which I hated. I worked out harder, quit smoking, and was able to get off the medicine in one year. For the next five years, I worked out with a personal trainer and followed the recommended “heart healthy” diet.
In 2015, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I was totally bummed. My numbers were off the charts (in a bad way) and my eyesight was blurry. I hadn’t had much success with the “heart healthy” diet and now had to combine it with the “diabetic diet,” which I found very limiting and frustrating. I started taking Metformin, which is a diabetes medication. Before she passed, my mother had been on Metformin, followed the “diabetic diet,” and still had to shoot up with insulin everyday for 30 years. I didn’t want to live that way.
Feeling discouraged and defeated, I ran across the Forks Over Knives documentary. Knowing I had nothing to lose, I watched it. I’m so glad, because it changed my life forever. Finally, I felt like I had found all the answers to my health issues. Watching it was like seeing a long lost friend and being wrapped in a great, big hug—it was familiar, hopeful, and long overdue.

Not that long ago, doctor Shallenberger in one of his studies found a fruit that has proven to be effective in killing pancreatic cancer cells. The subjected fruit is called “bitter melon” and it is largely used in Okinawa, Japan.
Dilute its juice to 5% in water, and bitter lemon juice destroyes pancreatic cancer cell lines in an incredible way. Researchers have explained that bitter melon juice actually damaged two cancer cell lines by 90%, and killed the remaining two lines at a rate of 98%.
Yes, you will all agree, these studies proved that bitter melon kills cancer cells on a dish. The question is: Will it cure people? Will it be effective with animals? Apparently yes. The researchers at the University of Colorado tested bitter melon’s effect on mice and the results were incredible 64% reduction in the size of the pancreatic tumor. Even more, there were literally no side-effects.
The dose they used was about six grams of powder for an average human. Studies have shown that bitter melon can also help diabetics. Do you need an explanation? Well, bitter melon can improve any metabolic problems due to its beneficial effect on the glucose metabolism.
