Great article showing the science that statin drugs don’t matter!

"Dashing Hopes, Study Shows a Cholesterol Drug Had No Effect on Heart Health"

But these specialists were stunned by the results of a study of 12,000 patients, announced on Sunday at the American College of Cardiology’s annual meeting: There was no benefit from taking the drug, evacetrapib.

A great article on Dr Sinatra who himself thought statins were fine. Now… leads the charge against it.

Also good supplement tools by Dr Davis.

Any study…And I mean any study that won’t let independent researcher’s look at full results tells you there’s something fishy going on.

And I leave you with this thought…

How many studies do u know where they have done a replicated study to show same result… None …Or very few.
Nearly 80% of ALL studies favour the fundee.

Having been in the software development field for clinical trials, this seems pretty true.

Good starting point if you’re wanting to go down a rabbit hole:

I posted this link on my wall, and was shaking my head at the responses. Cognitive dissonance? Not sure what evidence people need to convince them that for most people statins aren’t beneficial, and total cholesterol isn’t the best indicator of heart disease.
