    Yet another proof that healthcare in the USA, is a FRAUD. I am betting that this proof that statins are ineffective and harmful, will be ignored by the medical industry. Proving once again it is all about the money, and not about improving the health of Americans.

    From fake news to fake medicine..to fake everything, in the good ole US of A.

    FAKE MEDICINE: Call To Abandon Statin Drugs & Baby Aspirin
    Baby-Aspirin, Statin Cholesterol Drugs Found To Have Null Effect On Heart Attacks And Heart Disease.
    By Bill Sardi

    September 19, 2018

    ----------

    Meanwhile, a consortium of 17 prominent cardiologists, pointing to a study of 1.3 million patients, call on doctors to abandon use of statin cholesterol-lowering drugs to prevent heart disease saying they offer no protection. The strongest and most striking finding was elderly people with high levels of LDL-C, considered the most dangerous form of cholesterol, live the longest.

    This landmark indictment of statin drugs was published in the Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology journal and pointed to statistical deception that created the false appearance statin drugs are safe and effective for heart disease. Statin drugs are said to reduce the risk for a heart attack by 30%, but that is a relative number. Maybe 3 out of 100 adults experience a heart attack over a 5-year period and that risk is reduce to 2 out of 100, which is only a 1% risk reduction in hard numbers but a 33% drop in relative numbers. And statin drugs only prevent non-mortal heart attacks, not the deadly attacks.

    The growing $19 billion global statin drug market with 221 million annual prescriptions(falsely) promises to prevent heart disease in 56 million Americans. Lipitor, the best selling drug of all time (~$125 billion), has been a fraud.

    It sure is old news yet the medical establishment still pushes them on unsuspecting patients. Many have been irreparably harmed.

    However the study I cited in the OP is new and further proves the ineffectiveness of statins.

    Apparently you are unaware that the statin industry is a GROWING $19 BILLION industry. So, many docs are still prescribing them knowing full well they do more harm than good. It is all about the money honey.

    You should be thinking me for informing you.

    doctors make money when the pharmacy dispenses a med? Sheeeesh---
    I never did. Where do I go to collect on all the scripts I wrote? I never
    prescribed a statin. Hubby's doc did and when STUFF came out----I discontinued him. I have never prescribed DA BLUE PILL-----despite
    incessant demands (and bribe offers). Chances are if you eat yer spinach----
    you do not need the cod liver oil. Sometimes-----some docs BELIEVE a particular
    med to be RELATIVELY speaking ---beneficial despite studies or other information. There was an anti convulsant FELBAMATE that got into
    trouble that some docs SWORE BY------REMEMBER "pharmacology is
    differential toxicology" Any news on Bromocriptine?

    That is most ignorant. Doctors should be about healing first making money last. They make shit loads of money. Why not do it right?

    Hello Mr clueless, how ya doin' today? Do you even have the slightest idea of how medical research is done? Why statins went from being good to bad and how they'll go from bad to good in the near future? (Yes it has to do with money but not completely in the way you think, think 'grants' and media sensationalism).
    As for Sardi:
    bill sardi is a loon - Google Search

    Oh yeah and........

    Why Most Published Research Findings Are False

    BTW, how are you and your Martian friends getting along?
