FDA Warns Statins Increase Blood Sugar and Cause Memory Problems
 
04:44
The FDA has officially linked all statins with cognitive problems like forgetfullness and confusion as well as with a 25% increased risk for an elevated blood sugar level and possible association with type 2 diabetes. Statins are the best selling drugs on the market and are used by 21 million people in the US each year. Of course, there are all the other side effects as well that include liver disease, peripheral neuropathy, myopathy, muscle pain, kidney failure and erectile dysfunction and gynecomastia. New information shows statins can cause mitochondrial dysfunction that leads to a defect in energy production and decreased oxygen utilization. In addition we know that absorption of coenzyme Q10 is is blocked by these CoA reductase inhibitors as well and that this can lead to a cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure. We need cholesterol for a number of functions that include production of vitamin D, many hormones, neurotransmitters, and cell membranes. For more information please visit www.doctorsaputo.com

Statins Side Effects - Reverse Risks of Memory Loss with CoQ10!
 
02:35
http://www.nutrusta.co/ubiquinolultra Statin medication, widely prescribed for lowering cholesterol triggers sinister side effects - diabetes, liver, kidney damage, memory loss. The solution: take a high absorption CoQ10 supplement to alleviate statin health risks. Buy online👇👇👇 https://www.nutrusta.com/products/ubiquinol-coq10 https://www.amazon.com/Ubiquinol-CoQ10-VESIsorb-Kaneka-100mg/dp/B00KB2XSG0/ Are you taking statins? Statin medications are one of the most commonly prescribed drugs. Used to lower high cholesterol levels, they can literally save your life. You may know statins by these names: Lipitor, Crestor, Zocor Statins work by inhibiting LDL production in the liver and promoting the removal of LDL cholesterol from the bloodstream. This prevents and helps reduce plaque buildup in your blood vessels. If you or someone you know takes a statin, then you’re probably well aware of the side effects associated with this medication. Nausea, diarrhea, joint and muscle pains are some of the more common complaints. Statin medications also increase the risk of hyperglycemia and type 2 diabetes across the board. In more severe cases, the medication can cause liver or kidney damage. In rare instances, statins can cause a life threatening condition called rhabdomyolysis. This is where your muscle cells collapse and release poison into the bloodstream. So, is there anything you can do to alleviate these side effects? Turns out, you can, and the solution is fairly simple: Coenzyme Q10 supplementation. Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10 for short, is a naturally occurring enzyme found in every cell of your body. It helps keep your heart healthy, boosts mental clarity, and provides protection against free radicals, among other things. Low CoQ10 levels are also associated with memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease. CoQ10 levels naturally decrease as we age, contributing to the aches and pains we associate with growing older. However, Coq10 is insoluble in water, has limited solubility in lipids, and is a pretty large molecule. Because of its molecular structure, CoQ10 has notoriously poor absorption. When ingested as a supplement, as much as 60% of the dose will just bounce off the intestinal walls and end up in the toilet. THE NUTRUSTA SOLUTION Nutrusta Ubiquinol Ultra is a water-soluble formulation that combines the active, "body-ready" form of CoQ10 and the novel VESIsorb® micelle-based delivery system. VESIsorb® is proven to ensure 6 times better absorption and 3-fold increase in bioavailability for maximum and sustained therapeutic levels of CoQ10 that help reduce the side effects of statins.

The dangers of stopping cholesterol medication
 
02:54
Fifty-six million Americans fall under the guidelines to take a statin to reduce cholesterol, but a new study says only about half take them. Many start the medication, but abandon it after two years. The study highlights the dangers of ending statin therapy, including heart attacks and death. Dr. Tara Narula joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss why people stop taking the medicine, the risks of abandoning the medication and misconceptions associated with the drug.

Statin Side Effects
 
04:37
http://heartfitclinic.com for free webinar. Statin Side Effects Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death and number one cause of hospitalization in developed countries. Statin drugs are a common drug of choice in the prevention (lower cholesterol) and treatment of heart disease. The research is quite compelling showing the benefits of statin therapy. However does everyone need a statin? Let me start off by saying I am a big fan of statin therapy early on in the diagnosed heart disease process if patients can handle it. There should be a goal to eventually wane off this medication with a heart healthy lifestyle. The latest research on statin drug side effects shows that high potency statins are linked to acute kidney injury. What is high potency? 1. 10 mg or more of rosuvastatin (Crestor) 2. 20 mg or more of atorvastatin (Lipitor) 3. 40 mg or more of simvastatin (Zocor) Other side effects of statin drug therapy include: 1. Muscle pain and damage (Check out our great post on coenzyme q10 statins) 2. Liver damage. 3. Digestive problems. 4. Increased blood sugar or type 2 diabetes. 5. Neurological side effects such as memory loss, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease) Talks are they should be in the water that we drink but really you can do a lot with nutrition. I just read that there was a grocery store chain that was providing free statins (atorvastatin) to its customers. This was obviously a marketing promotion to get new customers. Pfizer branded Lipitor (atorvastatin) but their patent expired in 2011. So now the blockbuster drug is on the generic market. Pfizer has now just announced it will not market the drug anymore (all about making the shareholders happy). At the end of the day statins are a drug and they can come with side effects. The risks of taking a statin with statin side effects should be outweighed of the benefits. Because statins have side effect caution should be used when prescribing these drugs. Patients should understand the side effects of statin drugs. If you are diagnosed with high cholesterol and have been prescribed a statin then a good discussion has to be had with your prescribing doctor as to the reasons why? Doctors are given a handful of minutes at times with patients and try to mask the problem with a drug. Having high cholesterol does not mean you have to take statin therapy. As mentioned there are side effects and patients should be given a chance to reduce their numbers through lifestyle intervention. Good exercise program, stress management practices and nutrition program with possibly some supplements. Try this lifestyle therapy for 3 to 6 months and most people will see a big difference without having to go on statin therapy. In the event no change has been made then your healthcare team can decide the next step. It is important to understand that cholesterol is not the reason people end up with heart disease. It is inflammation. So the goal is to lower the inflammatory response. The reason statins do a great job is that it lowers LDL cholesterol and it also lower inflammatory response. You can always read my post on the truth about how to lower cholesterol. To your heart health success, Diamond Fernandes

Statins do not reduce heart attacks notes two cardiologists
 
02:13
Hi, this is Larry Hobbs @ FatNews.com. http://fatnews.com/ https://twitter.com/fatnews ‘This review strongly suggests that statins are not effective’ says two cardiologists “In conclusion, this review strongly suggests that statins are not effective for cardiovascular prevention,” notes a recent review paper by French cardiologist, Michel de Lorgeril, MD and Swiss cardiologist, Mikael Rabaeus, MD. Present claims about safe and efficacy of statins are not evidence-based says two cardiologists “The [statin] studies published before 2005/2006 were probably flawed, and this concerned in particular the safety issue,” notes a recent review paper by French cardiologist, Michel de Lorgeril, MD and Swiss cardiologist, Mikael Rabaeus, MD. “A complete reassessment [of all statin trials] is mandatory. “Until then, physicians should be aware that the present claims about the efficacy and safety of statins are not evidence based.” Crestor (rosuvastatin) is NOT effective at preventing heart attack or death says two cardiologists “Our systematic review [of four (4) randomized controlled trials published since 2005/2006] ... unambiguously showed that rosuvastatin [Crestor] is not effective in secondary prevention, while the results are highly debatable in primary prevention,” notes a recent review paper by French cardiologist, Michel de Lorgeril, MD and Swiss cardiologist, Mikael Rabaeus, MD. No statin is more effective than any other says two cardiologists “We then examined the most recent [randomized controlled trials] comparing statins to each other: all showed that no statin is more effective than any other, including rosuvastatin [Crestor],” notes a recent review paper by French cardiologist, Michel de Lorgeril, MD and Swiss cardiologist, Mikael Rabaeus, MD. Intense cholesterol-lowering with statins is not better than less-intense says two cardiologists “Furthermore, recent [randomized controlled trials] clearly indicate that intense cholesterol-lowering (including those with statins) does not protect high-risk patients any better than less-intense statin regimens,” notes a recent review paper by French cardiologist, Michel de Lorgeril, MD and Swiss cardiologist, Mikael Rabaeus, MD. Statins appear ineffective in chronic heart failure and chronic kidney failure says two cardiologists ”[S]tatins appear ineffective in chronic heart failure and chronic kidney failure patients,” notes a recent review paper by French cardiologist, Michel de Lorgeril, MD and Swiss cardiologist, Mikael Rabaeus, MD. Statins do not appear to protect diabetics says two cardiologists “[S]tatins do not appear to protect diabetics [from an increased risk of heart attack and death],” notes a recent review paper by French cardiologist, Michel de Lorgeril, MD and Swiss cardiologist, Mikael Rabaeus, MD. It is worrisome that it took 30 years to realize statins increase diabetes says two cardiologists “As for the safety of statin treatment – a major issue for medical doctors – it is quite worrisome to realize that it took 30 years to bring to light the triggering effect of statins on new-onset diabetes, manifestly reflecting a high level of bias in reporting harmful outcomes in commercial trials, as has been admitted by the recent confession of prominent experts in statin treatment,” notes a recent review paper by French cardiologist, Michel de Lorgeril, MD and Swiss cardiologist, Mikael Rabaeus, MD. They Looked At Statin Trials Published Since 2005/2006 They looked at studies published since 2005/2006 because “Around the years 2005/2006, new stricter regulations were introduced in the conduct and publication of randomized controlled trials” they noted.

World Renown Heart Surgeon Speaks Out On What Really Causes Heart Disease
 
11:01
http://preventdisease.com/news/12/030112_World-Renown-Heart-Surgeon-Speaks-Out-On-What-Really-Causes-Heart-Disease.shtml World Renown Heart Surgeon Speaks Out On What Really Causes Heart Disease We physicians with all our training, knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit we are wrong. So, here it is. I freely admit to being wrong.. As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries,today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact. I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.” Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol. The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease. Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice. It Is Not Working! These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible. The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated. The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences. Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive statin medications and despite the fact we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than ever before. Statistics from the American Heart Association show that 75 million Americans currently suffer from heart disease, 20 million have diabetes and 57 million have pre-diabetes. These disorders are affecting younger and younger people in greater numbers every year. Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped. Inflammation is not complicated -- it is quite simply your body's natural defence to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. The cycle of inflammation is perfect in how it protects your body from these bacterial and viral invaders. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury by toxins or foods the human body was never designed to process,a condition occurs called chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is just as harmful as acute inflammation is beneficial. What thoughtful person would willfully expose himself repeatedly to foods or other substances that are known to cause injury to the body? Well,smokers perhaps, but at least they made that choice willfully.

How to Reduce Bad Cholesterol
 
02:29
Watch more Healthy Eating videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/432350-How-to-Reduce-Bad-Cholesterol A little attention to detail never hurt anyone and may have benefits if it involves monitoring what you put in your body. Reduce your bad cholesterol through simple disciplined measures that are proven to help. Step 1: Disrupt fat with exercise Use exercise to naturally disrupt the metabolism of fat. Eating less helps, but excess body fat will keep cholesterol up until you actually lose pounds by breaking a sweat. Moderate walking and workouts five days a week can raise good cholesterol by 10 percent. Tip The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health suggests everyone 20 and over should check their levels of bad cholesterol every five years. Step 2: Relax and reflect Relax and reflect periodically, rather than give in to the high tension that constricts arteries and raises blood pressure. If you're constantly stressing out, consider making some long-term changes that will eliminate some of your stres for good. Step 3: Get good greens Drink green tea, full of compounds that can help lower bad cholesterol. Eat leafy greens as well, for soluble fiber that sponges up cholesterol in the digestive tract. Step 4: Consume nuts Consume nuts instead of cheese, meat, or croutons in salads. According to the Food and Drug Administration, a daily handful of 42.5 grams of nuts may reduce cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. Step 5: Substitute fish Substitute meat with fish twice or three times weekly. Consuming fish can profoundly lower cholesterol and triglycerides. Step 6: Choose smart fats Select smart fats for your diet, substituting canola or olive oils for vegetable oil, butter, margarine, lard, or shortening. It's not merely fats, but the kind of fats you eat, that make the difference. Tip Eggs do not drastically increase cholesterol. Step 7: Take drugs to lower cholesterol Take a cholesterol-lowering drug if you have evident cardiovascular risks. Beforehand, consider alternatives like niacin, bile acid resins, and fibrates. Step 8: Commit to win Resolve to make changes, and live a healthy lifestyle. It's your life -- only you can make the changes to lower your bad cholesterol. Did You Know? In 2010, researchers identified nearly 100 gene variants possibly linked to as much as one third of hereditary factors influencing cholesterol production.

The minimum requirement for a prescription has been lowered once again, so now millions more can join in the fun and frolics of taking drugs. Those who have already had a heart attack or stroke automatically quallify for the party. Prior to recieving your new medication you where likely given a daily calcium tablet by your GP or physician, to help strengthen bones and fend of osteoporosis. However, a recent medical study reveals that those given calcium pills signifiicantly increase their risk of heart attack and stroke.

Remember (as nearly all medical professionals will tell you)...side effects only happen to some people! Well actually on this point I would have to strongly disagree. We all know that alcohol is a drug, right? And we all know the familiar side effects associated with this drug. When a medical professional sits down at a table with me and takes ten pints of beer without showing any side effects, I might concider taking their 'opinion' on board. In the mean time I'll just rely on my own first hand experiences with my famiily members who have been on these drugs. And for good measure here are a few statin side effects related news pieces for youu to read through. Warning!!! Propaganda Allert!!!

Coconut oil; why does Bruce Fife call it a miracle, but the AHA calls it a risk. MCTs and body fat
 
12:08
Prevmedheartrisk.com Prevmedheartrisk.com. On June 18 2017, the AHA (American Heart Association) published a "Presidential Advisory" on dietary fats and heart disease. In that study, they stated unequivocally that they do not recommend coconut for heart disease. There have been decades of battle over coconut. Bruce Fife wrote a book called, "The Coconut Oil Miracle". Is it really? Probably not. Others would call coconut a villian. That's probably not true, either. Coconut oil has been a part of the dietary fats battle for decades. Coconut oil is saturated. Therefore it has been thought to be a problem, causing weight gain and heart diease. But coconut oil also is made up of MCTs ( Medium chain triglycerides). Recent arguments say that not only are MCTs not bad, they are actually good for you. There is some evidence to indicate this may be true. But at this point, it is not conclusive. For example, food producers have begun to replace soybean oil with coconut oil to decrease fat in broiler chickens. Meanwhile, coconut oil consumption in the US has risen relatively little since the 60s. Maybe we should do better research and wait until we have a clearer answer. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.

The Niacin debate: Does it help or not? History, background and current state
 
11:36
Ford Brewer MD MPH at PrevMedHeartRisk.com Niacin is Vitamin B3 (BOOPER ALERT - 35 SECONDS, I MISTAKENLY SAID D3 - NOT ONCE, BUT SEVERAL TIMES. I WOULD RE-TAPE IT. But too many people continue to value it.) . Along with it's partner chemical, Nicotinamide, it is the B3 complex. Niacin was discovered in the late 1800s and confirmed in the early 1900s. It was originally called "PP" factor, for Pellagra Prevention factor. Pellagra can cause severe skin disease. It also can create black tongue. This is also cured by niacin. Niacin was originally made by oxidizing NICOTINE. The similarities in these two molecules is shown in the video. It may have something to do with the far-reaching impact of nicotine. Niacin is involved in more metabolic processes (over 450) than any other vitamin cofactor. And Niacin has been found to have a positive impact on more cholesterol, lipid and cardiovascular problems than any other medicine. Debate started in 2011 with 2 studies, HPS2-THRIVE and AIM HIGH. The problem with HP2-THRIVE was lapropriant. Lapropriant was the popular medication used to stop niacin flush. Niacin flush is created by action on prostaglandin receptors. Lapropriant blocks those receptors. This receptor-blocking activity stopped the niacin flush. But it appears it also stopped the positive impact of niacin. AIM HIGH was another study that failed to show positive impact by niacin. There is a lot of debate re: the reason. It ranges from the thought that niacin doesn't work to problems with the study design. Does niacin help or not? It's still a debate. Many studies have shown that it does. A couple have shown that it does not. What do I do? I take it. 2000 mg/day. Rugby or Enduracin brands (and I have no financial relationships). Extended release. We'll cover management of flush in another video. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.

Castor Oil Side Effects Warning: 3 Important Points to Consider Before Buying
 
01:29
3 smart, time tested tips: 1. Avoid all kinds of oils coming from China. I have nothing against this country but facts are facts: 99% of supplements and oil coming from China are usually of a very low quality. 2. Avoid suppliers that claim to be associated with Dr. Oz. As you may know this tv doctor does not promote any particular brands. This is a clear red flag that the supplier is fraudulent. 3. Don't expect to get high quality castor oil for a few bucks. Castor oil is expensive to produce, one unit should cost at least 40-55 USD. Remember: you get what you pay for. Brands That I Trust and Recommend: 1. Castor Oil USA (http://castoroilusa.com) these are probably the oldest guys on the block. I have been personally using their brand for years and I have also witnessed a lot of success stories. The only drawback is that due to their recent "TV fame" their oil can be hard to get - they are often out of stock. Their official website is http://castoroilusa.com 2. Premium Castor Oil (http://premiumcastoroil.com). This is another time tested supplier. The only problem is that their oil is very expensive. Castor Oil USA has basically the same formula for half of premiumcastoroil.com price. Scientific benefits behind castor oil Castor oil is a pale yellow liquid obtained by pressing the seeds of the castor plant which is native to India and parts of Africa. It has been used for several centuries because of its medicinal and therapeutic attributes. The health benefits of castor oil arise from its high levels of unsaturated fatty acids. Even with its pungent smell, castor oils has numerous applications including: textiles manufacture, massage oils, soaps, medicines and cosmetics. The following are some benefits of using castor oil: Promotes hair growth. Rubbing warm castor oil into the scalp promotes blood circulation into the follicles, thus enabling faster hair growth. The oil also nourishes the hair due to its high concentration of omega-6 fatty acids. It is advisable to leave the oil on and cover the hair overnight. Castor oil also treats dandruff, as well as other fungal scalp conditions. Castor oil is an effective pain reliever. Castor oil contains ricinoleic acid which gives it its anti-inflammatory practices. Castor oil can be used for reducing inflammation and for managing swelling in tissues and joints. Taking two spoonfuls of castor oil can be very effective against rheumatoid arthritis. It can also be directly applied on the affected area. Castor oil can also offer great relief from menstrual cramps. It has laxative properties When used orally, the ricinoleic acid in castor oil functions as a laxative when it is released into the intestines. Taking castor oil before going to bed improves bowel movement. Castor oil is good for the skin. When applied on the skin, castor oil keeps the skin hydrated and protects it from infections. It can also treat skin conditions such as ringworms. Castor oil helps in clearing stretchmarks and eliminates wrinkles. It can also be used to treat cracks in nipples which can be very painful. It also aids in the healing of cuts and wounds and can come in handy in treating diaper rash. Treating allergies. Castor oil has anti-allergic properties. It treats skin allergies as well as those that affect the naso-pharyngeal region. Five drops of castor oil taken in the morning can aid in solving problems relating to allergies.

Lipid Lowering Agents
 
13:03
Understand the antihyperlipidemic agents once and all! In this quick board review lecture I'm gonna cover the anti-hyperlipidemic agents and that includes the following groups. The HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, the fibrates, niacin, bile acid sequestrants and cholesterol absorption inhibitors. Let's get started. The HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors are a very important group of drugs. Five out of five you've got to know these drugs for your exams. The more common name for these drugs is the statins. However, the mechanism of action is actually found in the first name. They are reversible and competitive inhibitors of HMG-CoA reductase. That is a very important rate-limiting enzyme in the pathway that produces cholesterol in our liver de novo. On the right I have a picture to explain this but I'm gonna break it down and walk through the steps. Starting with acetyl-CoA. Acetyl-CoA is an important molecule in biologic reactions and it plays an important part in the synthesis of cholesterol. Acetyl-CoA is basically an acetyl group that is linked to coenzyme A. Let me just shorten coenzyme A to just CoA. In that first step on our list below you can see that if we combined two acetyl-CoAs together through the enzyme thiolase we get a molecule called acetoacetyl-CoA. If we then take that molecule and add another acetyl-CoA through the enzyme HMG-CoA synthase we have HMG-CoA, and this is where the statins work. The statins block the next step. What's supposed to happen is that this HMG-CoA is supposed to be reduced to mevalonic acid. Again, the statins block this from happening and therefore ultimately inhibit or decrease the production of cholesterol de novo in the liver. Major side effects for the statins include hepatic toxicity, however, while this can be severe, only about one to two people per 10,000 patient years have this problem. What's more common by far is myositis or myalgias. It is very common that your patients could complain of muscle aches while on this medication. And in severe cases, they could have Rhabdomyolysis from it. As for examples for the statins, we have these four here. Rosuvastatin, atorvastatin, simvastatin and lovastatin and I organized this list in this way on purpose. On the right side of this little list are the equivalencies. Rosuvastatin is the strongest of these four statins with an equivalency of 1.0. Lovastatin is the weakest of these statins with an equivalency of eight. In other words you would need theoretically and it doesn't work out exactly but you would need about eight milligrams of lovastatin to equal the effect that you get with one milligram of rosuvastatin. And finally if you really want to impress your preceptors look up the ASTEROID Trial which was done in 2006. It showed that patients who are treated with 40 milligrams of rosuvastatin actually had a regression of their atherosclerotic plaques at a two-year follow-up. Moving on, now the fibrates. These drugs are pretty easy to pick out in a group because they end in -fibrate or -fibrozil. These drugs are often given in combination with the statins because there's not a lot of good evidence to support using them alone. As for their mechanism of action, they act by stimulating or activating the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor subtype alpha, or abbreviated PPAR alpha. Don't confuse this with PPAR gamma. The PPAR gamma is stimulated by the related class of drugs, the thiazolidinediones which are used for diabetes. Naturally in the body, these PPAR alpha receptors are found on the cell nucleus. They are used in the regulation of carbohydrates and fatty acids. When we stimulate these receptors with the fibrates we change that metabolism and this works by having the drug bind the receptor which makes the receptors move into the nucleus. Once in the nucleus, the PPAR alpha binds another receptor called the retinoid X receptor and that complex binds DNA on sequences that are called peroxisome proliferator hormone response elements. These response elements are responsible for the expression of proteins that are involved in the metabolism of fatty acids and triacylglycerides. For example, you would see an increase in the expression of lipoprotein lipase. This would increase the metabolism of triacylglycerides. Also it would increase the expression of apolipoprotein A1 and apolipoprotein A2. Those are lipoproteins that are important in the structure of an HDL particle. The side effects for the fibrates include GI upset, this is really common. You very well could see your patient complain of a stomach ache on the fibrates.

Statins should NOT have been approved for use; Peter Langsjoen MD
 
01:12
Hi, this is Larry Hobbs @ FatNews.com. http://fatnews.com/ https://twitter.com/fatnews Statins ‘should never have been approved for use,’ says cardiologist, Peter Langsjoen, MD “Statins are being used so aggressively and in such large numbers of people that the adverse effects are now becoming obvious. “These drugs should never have been approved for use. “The long-term effects are devastating,” Peter Langsjoen, MD, a cardiologist from Texas and coauthor of a recent review paper of more than 20 studies done with statins, was quoted as saying in the UK newspaper The Daily Express. Their review of more than 20 statin studies found evidence that statins can “cause, or worsen, heart failure”, and that there is overwhelming evidence that these drugs accelerate hardening of the arteries. Prof. Harumi Okuyama: ‘I cannot find any evidence to support people taking statins and patients who are on them should stop’ “We have collected a wealth of information on cholesterol and statins from many published papers and find overwhelming evidence that these drugs accelerate hardening of the arteries and can cause, or worsen, heart failure. “I cannot find any evidence to support people taking statins and patients who are on them should stop,” Prof. Harumi Okuyama from Nagoya City University in Nagoya, Japan, lead author of the 2015 review paper of statin trials, was quoted as saying in the UK newspaper The Daily Express. Dr. Malcolm Kendrick: ‘The harms [of statins] clearly outweigh any previously suggested benefits’ “This study demolishes the argument that these drugs should be prescribed to anyone, as the harms clearly outweigh any previously suggested benefits,” Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, author of The Great Cholesterol Con who has studied cardiovascular disease and statins for many years, was quoted as saying in the UK newspaper The Daily Express. The authors of the paper said that many earlier statin studies, prior to 2004, are not reliable. They noted that starting in 2004, new European regulations insisted on all trial findings, both negative and positive, being declared. Reference Johnston L.

Coronary Artery Disease Risk Factors
 
02:33
Coronary artery disease, commonly referred to as hardening of the arteries, is the number one killer of people in the United States and the world. Approximately once a minute somewhere in the United States, someone dies of coronary artery disease. This makes coronary artery disease responsible for over 600,000 deaths every year in the U.S. Scientists think it affects anywhere from 15 to 20,000,000 in the United States alone. However, physicians suspect that many people have it but don’t know it. After all, coronary artery disease can cause common symptoms, like chest pain and shortness of breath, that many other diseases cause. Without proper testing, one may think they have a heart problem, but can never be sure. Obviously, coronary artery disease matters. It leads to heart attacks, and heart attacks lead to death. What can we do about it? Is it a disease of old age? Is it something that is going to catch up to all of us and that’s about all there is to it? While it is of course true that coronary artery disease becomes more common as we age, there are many risk factors for coronary disease, some of which we can do something about, and some of which are just intrinsic to us. Those that are modifiable, meaning that we can do something about, include diabetes and its control, hypertension (high blood pressure) and its control, physical activity, high cholesterol, abdominal obesity, smoking, and the consumption of too much alcohol. Smoking is probably one of the greatest risks to one’s health that is changeable. While directly leading to increased rates of coronary artery disease, it’s encouraging to know that just one year after quitting, the risk of heart disease decreases by 50%. This is important information, as one in five still smokes, and often I hear from smokers, “I guess it’s just too late for me.” Information like this tells us that it’s not. High cholesterol is another important risk factor that can be changed. The LDL, or bad cholesterol, needs to be fairly low, or at least treated with statin therapy (medicines like Lipitor, Zocor, Crestor, or similar medications) in order to stabilize the arteries that lead to the heart. Obesity is another modifiable risk factor. It’s been found that those males who have a waist size of greater than 40 inches or females that have a waist size greater than 35 inches have an increased risk of heart disease. Fortunately, simply getting below these numbers seems to decrease the risk of heart disease. Exercising at least three times weekly mainly on aerobic way can also decrease the risk of heart disease. Twenty to thirty minutes of moderate exercise (where you end the exercise with some shortness of breath but still can talk) three times weekly is all that’s needed to help the heart be healthy. However, those who have existing health problems need to contact their physician first. High blood pressure or hypertension needs to be treated as well. Keeping the numbers at least below 140/90 and preferably around 120/80 has been shown to decrease the risk of coronary artery disease. Both patients and physicians are found to underestimate the importance that blood pressure control makes. Alcohol consumption makes a difference as well. More than one alcoholic drink a day seems to increase risk of heart disease. As of this writing, the consumption of red wine is not really thought to be a huge factor in preventing heart disease, although studies often contradict each other on this topic. Because of conflicting data, I tell my patients the safest thing to do is to avoid alcohol if possible and focus on the other modifiable risk factors for coronary disease.

Statins in heart failure
 
03:16
Dr. Paloma Gastelurrutia, a researcher at Germans Trias i Pujol Health Research Institute, in Barcelona, Spain, discusses her article appearing in the June 2012 issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings, which compares the results of clinical trial studies and long term follow-up with real-life cohorts of patients using statins. Large clinical trials did not show success with statins, but cohort studies revealed more optimistic results. Available at: http://www.mayoclinicproceedings.org/article/S0025-6196(12)00389-8/fulltext

Keto - Stopping Statins
 
04:25
Yesterday I stop taking my statin drugs and so far no side effects I've missed a dose once or twice in the last year and have had no issues so I didn't really expect any but I was in shock about all of the Articles when you look up stopping statins that go on and on about how beneficial statins are and you really shouldn't do it so basically they're shams because they know the search term people are using to promote their own agenda I don't blame them they want to make billions of dollars on the fact that they're trying to give me diabetes

How to stop the Hunger Hormone (Ghrelin): hormonal impacts of low carb and low fat diets
 
09:49
This is another issue raised by Jenny Ruhl in her book Diet 101. It involved a study by Kasim-Karakas of PCOS patients. They compared hormone responses to glucose vs. protein dietary challenges. Ghrelin stabilized after the protein challenge. However, ghrelin increased again starting at 3 hours after a glucose challenge. Evidence indicates that low-carb, high-protein meals decrease the fluctuation of blood glucose and ghrelin as well as other hormones. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.
