    Statins May Cause Insulin Resistance By Depleting Vitamin K

    A great study, which both highlights the dangers of statins while also providing a plausible mechanism for those side effects that both FDA and Big Pharma vehemently continue to dispute. This plausible mechanism involves the inhibition of vitamin K2 (MK-4) synthesis, which requires the same...

    Statins More Than Double The Risk Of Diabetes Compared To Non-users

    Yet another damning study on the toxic effects of drugs whose main effect (lowering cholesterol by blocking its synthesis) is already known to be harmful and has no evidence behind its claimed benefits. So, we can now add diabetes to the list of cancer, ALS, dementia, birth defects...

    Endotoxin Causes Cachexia In Cancer; How Statin Drugs Really Work

    The title of the post is a bit strange but it is pretty much what the study below found. Just like the SSRI drugs, the mechanism of action of statins is (officially) not really known.

    Eating 12 Eggs A Week Does Not Increase Risk Of Heart Disease

    This study probably won't come as surprise to forum users given what Ray has said and written about cholesterol. Without much fanfare, after more than 60 years of officially demonizing cholesterol in 2017 the FDA quietly reversed its position on recommending avoiding cholesterol. However, to...

    Statins May Exert Beneficial Effects Through A Pathway Other Than It's Cholesterol Lowering Action

    Was surprised when saw a study showing statins have positive effects on bones, did a bit of searching and it turned out that it has some positive action,generally, through inhibiting rho kinase, which also is protective against heart disease. Im not promoting statin use at all(for obvious...

    Lowering Cholesterol Increases CVD Deaths, Benefits Of Statins Exaggerated

    FDA has recently made a 180-degree turn in regards to dietary cholesterol. After decades of claiming eating cholesterol gives you heart attacks, now the FDA says that at best it does not matter. This study goes a step further in confirming Peat's views and found that people with the lowest LDL...

    Aspirin Better Than Statins For Cholesterol And Triglycerides

    The good news for aspirin keep piling up. This study showed that a relatively low dose of aspirin reduced cholesterol and triglycerides better than a statin drug (simvastatin, Zocor), and also unlike the statin aspirin also increased HDL. The study focuses on a special aspirin preparation called...

    Reversed Warfarin Induced Arterial Calcification By Vitamin K Supplement And K1 As Effective As K2

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17138823/ Arterial calcification (AC) is generally regarded as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Matrix Gla protein (MGP) is a potent inhibitor of AC, and its activity depends on vitamin K (VK). In rats, inactivation of...

    Safety And Efficacy Of Statins Deliberately Exaggerated

    Nothing surprising here, but it is nice to see the truth is slowly coming out and being accepted by the mainstream culture. http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1586/17512433.2015.1012494 http://www.thebradentontimes.com/news/2 ... SlhI5OzkfM "...Dr. David M. Diamond, a professor of...

    Statins cause fat buildup, adrenergic activation causes muscle wasting

    The study was in lab-grown muscles but the claim is that those muscles work just like human muscles. The study tested the effects of statins and clenbuterol (a pro-adrenalin drug used for weight loss). http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/288012.php "...They found the statins caused...
