No surprise here but new research by the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Healthcare System has shown statin drugs actually accelerate cardiovascular problems.
These drugs are silently killing by hardening the main arteries, they are the main cause of type 2 diabetes in healthy people and they accelerate the major health problems of diabetes sufferers.
Statins cause the very thing they are meant to avoid, heart disease and death.
After monitoring the health of 197 type 2 diabetes statin users, it was found that coronary artery hardening was far more accelerated in regular users of the drug than those who only took them occasionally.
Once they started taking the drug regularly, patients who weren’t initially taking a statin rapidly developed calcification of the aortic artery.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. The researchers database lists 300 statin side effects including weakening of the heart and an increase by 48% of type 2 diabetes in post menopausal women.
