LIPITOR,THIEF OF MEMORY Statin Drugs and the Misguided War on Cholesterol
This small gem of a book by Duane Graveline, M.D. (Infinity Publishing, Haverford, Pa., 2004), $17.95., supplemented with an introduction and a foreword by two other physicians, further documents the blindness of the medical profession to the evil goals of the PharmacoMafia to put every human on a polypharmacy regimen.
''The analysis of the shortcomings of the cholesterol/fat hypothesis concerning the genesis of arteriosclerosis clearly indicates that this theory has outlived its usefulness.''(Kilmer S. McCully, M.D.)
''Unfortunately, while the drug industry sends out 80,000 sales representatives'' (to brainwash physicians, CNS) –''I receive many reports from patients who develop side effects with medications, and almost every report contains a description of a doctor who is either uninformed or dismissive about obvious side effects.'' (Jay S. Cohen, M.D., U. of California, San Diego)
Duane Graveline. M.D. is a former astronaut and aerospace medical research scientist who developed global amnesia TWICE when doctors pushed him to take Lipitor . I personally have heard similar stories from many unfortunate patients whose doctors have ears but hear not. Severe polyneuropathy, depression, marked increased incidence of heart failure, kidney failure, generalized muscle weakness and frank Alzheimer's syndrome are increasingly iatrogenic diseases fostered on the people of the world by the American Medical System and the PharmacoMafia. The statin plague may well become the most serious pandemic ever unleashed by unscrupulous and misguided, greedy robber barons. It has been proven that brain cells, neurons, require cholesterol to form synaptic contacts. Statins block cholesterol synthesis, essential for normal brain function. Statins also destroy one of the most essential nutrients, Co-Q 10, ubequinone. All statins create numerous complications, up to and including death.
Physicians, the AMA, and the American Heart Association continue to push statins while largely ignoring the high incidence of homocysteinemia, which is FAR more serious than cholesterol. Homocysteinemia is easily and safely normalized with simple folic acid, B 12 and a bit of B complex.. ''Despite glowing reports in the press, strong evidence exists that cholesterol levels do not matter.'' (p. 73). Incidentally there is also ''The Myth of the Cholesterol/Modified Low-Fat Diet'' (p.75) ''''After fifty Dr. McCully, the physician hero of the homocysteine discovery so often ignored by physicians, recommends two to three servings daily of protein from fish, meats, poultry, eggs or cheese. I AGREE!
Of course, your total calorie intake, your body mass index and exercise are critical. And cholesterol levels can be well balanced, if desired, with policosanol, beta sitosterol, lecithin, etc. STATINS SUCK your life energy! Their serious damage to body and mind may not be apparent for years. There is NO circumstance in which I would take them or recommend them. There are 170 scientific references in the book to back this important information.
