Do statin drugs protect you from heart attack & stroke? Do statin drugs prolong life??
The real answers to these questions will surprise you! 

This one's amazing. Just a couple of days ago, I made a podcast called pills, pills, pills, where I was recommending that you really do your research, talk to your doctor and try to get off all the medications you can. Here's a perfect example. The JAMA, Journal of the American Medical Association just came out with a big expose on statins.

So I ask you, do statins protect you from a heart attack and stroke? 

Do they prolong life? 

The real answers here are going to surprise the daylights out of you. 

When drug companies report this stuff, they talk about relative risk instead of absolute risk. 

It turns out that the chances are of having a heart attack, having a stroke or dying from high cholesterol are infinitesimally small.

I'm not gonna get real deep into the woods with you today. What I'm gonna do is I'm gonna put the links below on the Journal of American Medical Assiciation article and another one by Maryanne Demasi. 

Read both of these, they're going to show you exactly what the issue is. Exactly what's going on. 

Basically the bottom line conclusion is throw your statins away, print this out, take it to your doctor and see if you can get your doctor to agree with you on it. 

It's just scary. This is a perfect example of how the drug companies manipulate results.

They claim it's 36%. It's actually less than 1%. If you take the absolute numbers.

What they do. They get into the woods a little bit talking about the percent of increase to the percent of decrease, which is relative. So if you go from one out of 10,000 to 1.2 out of 10,000, they're gonna tell you that's a 20% increase.

See how that goes?

Read these articles, check it all out. As always question every medication your doctor tells you to take, do your own research, talk to your doctor about it. 

90% of this stuff can all be cured with diet anyways. So diet and exercise. 

You know my mantra, you're gonna get sunshine, you're gonna get good sleep, you're gonna breathe, you're going to eat clean, you're gonna exercise every day. 

Watch your life change. 

So this was really, really good timing. I wanted to be sure I got it to you as quickly as I could.
