Millions of people trust pharmaceutical industry and use medications to lower cholesterol, instead of opting for a healthier solution. Statins are drugs used to decrease cholesterol. This makes a 29 billion dollar industry, and unfortunately it has most of you fooled completely.

Statins are commonly prescribed to prevent heart attack, stroke, inflammation and other ailments. But, despide their widespread use, statins actually do not prevent stroke and heart attack. Moreover, they may trigger cancer development and many other severe health conditions.

In the latest documentary film on this issue, $29 Billion Reasons to Lie About Cholesterol, Justin Smith explains:

” … between 1994 and 2006 the percentage of men aged 65 to 74 with ‘high’ cholesterol decreased from 87% to 54% … Despite this, the rate of coronary heart disease for this age group stayed about the same … Other age groups have experienced an increase in the rate of heart disease as the number of people with ‘high’ cholesterol has decreased.”

Statins cause cancer

Thorough studies have revealed a strong connection between statin use and cancer.

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1996:

All members of the two most popular classes of lipid-lowering drugs (the fibrates and the statins) cause cancer in rodents, in some cases at levels of animal exposure close to those prescribed to humans. … Longer-term clinical trials and careful postmarketing surveillance during the next several decades are needed to determine whether cholesterol-lowering drugs cause cancer in humans.

In the meantime, the results of experiments in animals and humans suggest that lipid-lowering drug treatment, especially with the fibrates and statins, should be avoided except in patients at high short-term risk of coronary heart disease.

In 2011, the journal Prostate published a study according to which men who use statins have a dramatically increased risk of developing prostate cancer when compared to other men. Statin users are an 86 percent higher risk of developing prostate cancer than men who have never used such drugs.

More reasons to avoid statins

They increase the risk of chronic disease. Statins increase insulin level, causing inflammation in the body, which is considered as the hallmark of common chronic diseases.
- Statins deplete human body of CoQ10. By using statins without taking CoQ10, you are exposing your health to serious risk.
- Statins are directly associated with over 300 side effects, including neuropathy, anemia, chronic fatigue, thyroid disruption, and diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
- Statins decrease testosterone rate in men.
- Statins affect memory.
Cholesterol does not induce heart disease. It is essential and crucial for many vital functions in human body.

In a recent interview, Dr Stephen Sinatra is a board certified cardiologist and an expert in natural cardiology, explains:

We need it for lubrication. We need it for neurotransmitter function in the brain.

“Let’s face it, cholesterol is something your body needs. If you look at the MRFIT study [Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial] where they looked at 180,000 men over a period of… 13 years (1973-80); men with cholesterol of 330 had less hemorrhagic stroke than men with cholesterol less than 180. If you look at cholesterol numbers, the higher cholesterol number would give you protection from hemorrhagic stroke. (I’m not talking about ischemic stroke now but hemorrhagic stroke.) … [W]e need cholesterol in our skin to activate vitamin D3 from sunlight. We need cholesterol to make our sex hormones… to make our adrenal hormones. When LDL is driven too low, it’s no wonder that a lot of patients develop memory problems or pre-Alzheimer’s, or even total global amnesia, which is really losing one’s memory. It’s very frightful and I have seen several cases.… There are so many other aspects that in my mind play a much bigger role that I put cholesterol down at the low end of the spectrum.”

Lower “bad” cholesterol naturally

– Eat an avocado a day. It is an amazing source of heart-friendly monounsaturated fat.

– Use lemongrass essential oil. The Department of Nutritional Sciences, University of Wisconsin, conducted a study and the results were published in 1989, in the medical journal Lipids (study details). The study was based on lemongrass oil, regarding its lowering effect on serum cholesterol levels. (find it here)

– Cinnamon is your friend. Scientists have revealed that cinnamon decreases blood sugar, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. A study involving 60 patients diagnosed with type-2 diabetes has shown that a quarter teaspoon or 1 gram of cinnamon can reduce triglycerides by 23-30%, blood sugar by 18-29%, total cholesterol by 12-26% and bad (LDL) cholesterol by 7-27%.
