Worried about statins? Read On..

Here’s an extract from an e-mail I recieved today that will be of interest to anyone taking statins…

“For thousands of people taking prescription drugs, life is rarely nicely coated with a Hollywood-ending – especially for those suffering from the side effects of cholesterol-lowering statins… when in fact, the cholesterol myth is nothing but a great big con!

Doctors and Big Pharma want you to believe that cholesterol is a major cause of heart attacks and strokes.

Why? So that they can sell more cholesterol-lowering statins…

One in three people over the age of 45 in the UK – that’s 7 million people – currently take statins at a cost to the National Health Service of £450 million per year. Sales are set to skyrocket over the next 10 years.

But what you’re not being told is that cholesterol isn’t the arch villain it’s made out to be… and that all these people are risking their health, since statins come with a huge list of debilitating side effects – including heart failure and liver damage…

The truth about cholesterol

In fact, the great cholesterol and statin controversy is such a contentious issue, which has brought such a strong response from our readers, that we’ve created a separate blog, The Cholesterol Truth, which focuses on exposing the truth to the millions of people bamboozled into taking dangerous statin drugs…

The site is dedicated to those of you suffering side effects as a result of taking cholesterol-lowering drugs and to all those who seek safer, more natural solutions for promoting heart health and healthy cholesterol levels…

The Cholesterol Truth has no sugar coating… we say it as it is and cut straight to the heart of the matter…

Scratch beneath the surface and you’ll find there’s a lot more at play when it comes to statins (and the companies that manufacture them) than you could ever possibly have imagined…

I’m delighted to announce that we’ve invited a renowned health expert to join our team of writers at The Cholesterol Truth… just to make sure we tick all the boxes. He is not only a practising doctor, author and international speaker but also a leading authority on the impact of nutrition and other lifestyle factors on health and illness, including heart disease.
