Cholesterol Anxiety Created by Phony Lipid Hypothesis

Cholesterol Anxiety Created by Phony Lipid Hypothesis

Modern Americans can be persuaded to believe anything. It is not enough to lead a man toward the sale of a drug. He must also believe that a drug and the doctor who prescribed it will help him. Illegal drugs are on the fringe but legal drugs have subdued the whole population without one in a million suspecting it. The drug business is a commercial enterprise that has nothing to do with benefiting public health.

The following is “Statin Woes”:

"Go to and click on ratings and then Lipitor®, where you will find almost 700 comments on the cholesterol-lowering drug. What is interesting is the very high number of patients reporting side effects, including severe fatigue, joint pain, digestive problems, craving for fatty foods, difficulty breathing, thinning hair, depression, lack of concentration, memory lapses, thoughts of suicide, nightmares, peripheral neuropathy, paralysis, dizziness, painful charley horses, weight gain, blurred vision, headaches, insomnia, difficulty walking, rashes, blisters, slurred speech, eczema and ‘itching all over.’ Yet most of the ratings are positive, with patients expressing satisfaction at bringing their cholesterol levels down, and persevering in spite of the debilitating side effects. Such is the level of cholesterol anxiety engendered by the phony lipid hypothesis. Perhaps ‘complete decline in the power of reason’ should be added to the list of side effects from cholesterol-lowering drugs." (Quoted from Wise Traditions, Fall 2006 Volume 7 Number 3)

Cod liver oil is all-natural and cheaper than Lipitor®, and can even boost your memory.

    Since the poll is more negative to Obama and the left – no doubt it will never be mentioned on the national media coverage.

      Hi Marilyn,
      I could not agree with you more.
      When it comes to Lord Obama the mainstream media turns a blind eye and
      deaf ear.

    I am sick and tired of the Congress and Senate abusing their power to line their pockets with a whole lot of pork. I feel very strongly about imposing “TERM LIMITS”
    for both. Two 3 year terms and your out! Anything after that we the people are taking a chance of getting a very corrupt Senator or Congressmen / women. Why should this not apply to them if it applies to the President. After there term is up so are the benifits! Remember this, they work for us the people of The United States OF America. The grestest country on this earth! ” Not the other way around ” !!! We need
    to remind them of that.

    I have read a lot of comments from those who posted an absolute displeasurable situation while taking some of the statin drugs being prescribed by our astute medical advisors.

    I tried two of these, for a short period, and found absolutely no positive influence on my ldl level. When I began to experience some of the symptoms reported by others, I told my pcp that I was not going to take any more of these statins.

    I have, beginning almost two years in the making, changed my diet. I am very careful what I consume, and when, limiting my potion sizes to small or less, and chewing until I get it all done, which helps your system better digest, and fullness is easier to achieve, with smaller potion sizes.

    We need to introduce ourselves to more green veggies, cooked properly and no more animal fats (burgers and the like).

    Your weight will stabilize and you will feel better, and are more apt to be more outgoing and this will aid in other factors.

    Good luck in your choices to aid your recovery.

    Statin drugs are the biggest scam on the planit earth. I was on Lipitor for years. I havn’t had any since 2004. I was on BP meds since 1980. 2 pills a day. I havn’t had any since 2004. 3 diabetic pills a day since 1990 some twice a day. I am down to 1 ad it will soon be gone. I lost 68 pounds since 2008 and never put a pound pack. There are some simple methods to all of this. walking is 1, eating organic foods 2, reading labels 3, drinking raw milk 4 and some others. I do workshops on healthy living and the people who attend can’t believe what they are missing in life.
