A $29-billion-dollar-a-year industry

“You use them or you die.” This is what a doctor told Sulette Brown, a psychotherapist from Oklahoma, when she balked at taking statins, after she’d been rushed to the emergency room for a heart attack. Since that night, her life has changed in ways she could not have imagined. Statins block the synthesis of cholesterol, a naturally-occurring substance that is found in every cell in your body. They commonly are prescribed to treat and prevent cardiovascular disease, or CVD, a condition in which the arteries are occluded by plaque which consists of (among other things) cholesterol. Two common complications of CVD

Comments:
I feel like shouting from the rooftops about the danger of these statin drugs. Please, ANYONE and anyone who knows anyone taking them, be forewarned and question these doctors who tend to be cholesterophobes.

I recently spoke to my doctor about this. He himself had to stop because on knee pain. HOWEVER, he said the vast majority have no problems, and the benefits far outweigh the risks. If you have a problem, then stop. If you don´t, don´t.

Take medical advice from your doctor. If in doubt get a 2nd or 3rd opinion. But from an article on the internet? Never

Thank you, #1.

I´ve been taking Lipitor for 10 years with no side effects at all. I´m 61 years old, 5´5", 115 pounds and without the drug my cholesterol was 316. Given my life style and my eating habits I should not have high cholesterol - it´s completely hereditary, from my mother, who died of "hardening of the arteries" when she was just a little older than I am now. I´ll keep my statins, thank you very much.

My father was hospitalized with a double pulmonary edema (blood thickness). Only survived because he was a long distance runner and had great lung capacity and heart strength. Even though his cholesterol wasn´t an issue, one of the doctors in the E.R. tried to make him take some statins--my father very pointedly told the doctor that he had no clue and was over-prescribing a drug that wasn´t necessary (schooling the doctor with what the doctor should have been looking at before attempting to prescribe such a drug). A blood-thinner, maybe, for a blood thickness issue, but not a cholesterol drug.
(Of course, I had a doctor try to talk me into a Gardisil vaccination even though at the time, I was +35 years old).
It is all big-industry now, and not about the health of the patient. Prescribe a drug, it has these side effects, so prescribe a drug for those side effects, and pretty soon, someone is on 15 different drugs, most of them only necessary because of the other prescribed drugs.

My father and his two older brothers all died in their early 50´s from atherosclerosis. When I was 35 my total cholesterol was 400+, and I was diagnosed with significant plaque buildup in my carotid arteries. My cardiologist told me to begin taking statins immediately or face my dad´s fate. I am now 70, my total cholesterol has been below 160 for more than 25 years and my carotid ultrasounds show no plaque, period. The overwhelming numbers of medical studies conclusively show that statins are lifesavers, and I am living proof.

Medications effect people in different ways. Statin complaints originally claimed to cause upper arm pain in some. Loss of memory in others. Mood swings, high sugar levels. Eventually I completely stopped taking them..each pained step was a feat in itself. Pain for what? Because of a Rx? Replaced with otc Niacin twice a day, eventually the pained steps were lost and the blood sugar back to normal. As to the loss of memory, at times still searching.

The niacin seems to be working along with the diet (knock on wood) DH is still on them though his dosage/mg is much lower now. Why docs push the drug both here and in Britain, one must wonder if they get a cut of the proceeds.

In life nothing is ´equal´ some react differently than others.

Cholesterol was 265 before I started Lipitor. Came down to 145. But sugar started going up. Switched to Crestor, sugar came down and cholesterol still under 150. I guess depends on each individual.

High cholesterol myths are why so many are taking statins.

They do nothing for women and nothing for you if you have not had a heart attack.

As you get older you want higher cholesterol because it is good for the brain. We have become a nation and world of scaredy cats.

Even if entirely factual, this sort of article is, at the same time, dangerous baloney. Suppose a million people take a drug for a common problem, and 1% have various side effects. This means that there are 10,000 stories of side effects, YET 99% of the users are healthier.

Since the actual numbers of statin users is reported online to be about 15 million, then with 1% of users with problems, we will have 150,000 "bad news stories". The authors do nobody a favor by this sort of gotcha "journalism", it is apparent that the great majority of people (maybe not 99%, but a large majority) with cholesterol problems are healthier with statins than without. If you have side effects, then don´t take them, but mind your own business about them, too. Just because they don´t work well for you doesn´t mean that they don´t work well for many other people.

There is no disease or condition caused by a drug deficiency. No drug cures anything. Statins are related to progressive memory loss in aging men. This is not anecdotal.

Increasing numbers of people have been taking statins now for a long time. The proof of efficacy should be in the heart attack records. There should be a decreasing number of heart attacks per capita if statins work. A quick Google search got me this:

Although I don´t know when statins were introduced and how rapidly they came into use that chart would seem to confirm their value.

No right or wrong answer about statins.

I lost muscle mass and strength very rapidly as soon as I started. That stopped when I stopped. Doc then prescribled a different statin and the same thing happened.

But others will benefit from them. See #2, 3.

OT: My cholesterol was never very high, I refused to try statins for years but finally took the Doc´s advise. Most of my relatives live to around 100 and I never knew one with heart disease.

How can Scotland be independent when

Scotland’s so-called fight for independence was another one of those epic battles lost before it ever began. The passions played out in pictures; the threats of corporations and banks withdrawing from Scotland the Brave; the repeated reminders that Scotland breaking away from Britain would lead the way for other countries to strike out on their own was all for naught. How could Scotland be independent from Britain when Britain is not independent. Britain belongs stock and barrel to the European Union (EU) and has since January 1, 1973. “Voters in Glasgow backed independence 53-47, but overall Scots apparently didn’t believe the

Pertinent, if not downright cheeky question to the leaders of the now dwindling 40 nations blindly following President Barack Obama into the Machiavellian ISIS war he deceptively tags: “a very significant counter-terrorism operation”: Are you aware of the war that totally consumes Obama, the one he is waging against America? That’s a question that sorely needs asking when it is so patently obvious that Obama shows far more gusto on the war deceptively called ‘The Fundamental Transformation of America’ than he displays toward the pretend war on ISIS, and one he’s been able to mastermind with no intervention for the past six

I spent three hours yesterday at the Romanian Embassy trying to obtain a passport renewal for my 82-year-old mother who wants to travel to visit her sister and brother she has not seen since 1996. It may be her last trip. Because her passport expired in 1998, it appears that it must be verified that she is still a Romanian citizen and that she has not given up her citizenship to another country without their knowledge, even though I provided them with her resident alien U.S. re-entry permit (a form of passport for legal immigrants) that also expired in late 90s,

Among the reasons the Democrat Party is full throttle behind the illegal alien issue is the State of Texas. Colorado was flipped from red to blue by four billionaires who poured their money into that State with the specific intent of flipping it blue. Texas is not so easy to flip. The conservative attitude of the huge population won’t be defeated with ease. The Democrats believe that if they can flip Texas, the country belongs to them indefinitely. The remaining red states would not hold enough electoral votes to override the leftists in a presidential election, and the steady rise of

If I pointed out that involvement in every major 20th-century conflict the US was part of occurred on liberals’ watch, it might not be entirely fair. True, there was WWI under Wilson, WWII under FDR, Korea under Truman, and Vietnam under Kennedy and Johnson. But the second Great War needed to be fought, four conflicts aren’t exactly a scientific sample, and some could contend that these men were, to some extent, victims of timing and circumstance. It also should be said that with modernity’s characteristic flaw of relativism causing ever shifting social visions, yesterday’s liberals aren’t like today’s.

In the strange language of the CIA, ISIS can ‘muster’ between 20,000 and 31,500 ‘fighters’. With another ISIS beheading threatened for as soon as next week, we have a president who calls ISIS ISIL and a CIA who calls ISIS ”fighters” rather than terrorists. “A CIA assessment puts the number of ISIS fighters at possibly more than three times the previous estimates.

President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

SALEM, N.H. — Voters have soured on President Obama. National and statewide trends favor Republicans. And here in his new home state, Scott Brown’s truck is gaining speed. Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

Reporters continued to push with several trying to explain their question is if the president has already given authorization. Laughing uncomfortably Rice exited the room
