It’s insane that Big Pharma gets away with this crap. However, now that over 80% of Americans are vaccine-hesitant*, maybe ears will be open to hearing what else they’ve lied about.
*Any person who has not taken the latest recommended booster is clearly vaccine-hesitant. Very few people are going for the latest booster or the combo flu-C19. Why not? I imagine they’ve heard the #diedsuddenly news. #hamardamlin #scottadamsays
Here you go:
High Cholesterol does not clog your arteries and cause heart disease. It’s calcium that clogs your arteries hence you get a calcium coronary scan to assess your risk of clogged arteries.
What you eat has no effect on your cholesterol LEVELS. Zero. You cannot increase or decrease your HDL or LDL with food.
Cholesterol is an essential nutrient that you don’t get from food!!! Your body has to make it.
All of your sex hormones — estrogen, progesterone, testosterone — are metabolized from cholesterol. No cholesterol, no sex hormones. Sex hormones are not just responsible for sex, there are many more tasks, not the least of which is anti-aging.
A statin is NOT a cholesterol-LOWERING drug. It’s a cholesterol STOPPING drug. It actually prevents your body from making cholesterol, an essential nutrient. Essential for LIFE.
Put 4 & 5 together and what do you get? Loss of libido. Stopping cholesterol production means stopping sex hormones which is why one of the first side effects of taking a statin is loss of libido.
Cholesterol also makes CoQ10 which is needed to contract muscles. Statin-takers have been killed in car wrecks because they were no longer able to control their legs to work the brakes or gas pedals.
Made by Pfizer, Merck, AstraZeneca… all the usual players who have all been fined for lying.
If you’d like to get off statins, don’t just stop. You have to be weaned off of them.
