What Do ALL the Statin Cholesterol Drugs Have In Common?

They can flat out kill you, that's what. By flat out, it means you could be standing up one second and be laying flat on your back, or face down, the next. As Dr. Samuel Weigle told me one afternoon, "They lower cholesterol and cause heart attacks." he also told me that statin dugs are "the worst class of drugs out there."

It doesn't matter if it's Lipitor, Mevacor, Pravachol, Zocor, Crestor, or whatever. Each one blocks the spark plug to your heart. In as little as 3 months, you heart could be 25% less efficient. Keep taking the drug and the efficiency of your heart can keep dropping.

In one study at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Lipitor significantly reduced CoQ10, the spark plug, in just 14 days.
Conclusions Even brief exposure to atorvastatin causes a marked decrease in blood CoQ10 concentration. Widespread inhibition of CoQ10 synthesis could explain the most commonly reported adverse effects of statins, especially exercise intolerance, myalgia, and myoglobinuria.

If you're cholesterol is a concern for you, you might start taking fish oil and arginine, instead. The fish oil cuts down any inflammation and arginine increases your good cholesterol. Your good cholesterol scubs your arteries clean.

Your good cholesterol also helps your brain, memory and libido (in men and women.)

The truth is that NO woman should ever be given Lipitor or any other statin drug for elevated cholesterol.

There are no statin trials with even the slightest hint of a mortality benefit in women and women should be told so.

In other words, statin drugs don’t work for women.
