What's a little cholesterol amongst friends?

This note from Eddie Vos is yet again another reminder on how Health Canada misuses it's its scant resources including our tax dollars: all the while parading to protect us from mythical dangers of generally safe health foods and vitamins. When in fact they are nothing but cronies of the money boys.

Strange that we have to sue Health Canada, our supposed protectors, just to do their job as per the below imagine!
  1. FCHC vs. Health Canada
  2. Truehope vs. Health Canada
  3. Strauss vs. Health Canada
Asking these regulatory bodies to protect us is akin to having a fox guard the hens - el stupido - plain and simple!

Dear All, 

A friend of mine made a fine scan of the ad that has been running for over a year in the Canadian media.  The ad features the Canadian "Lipid Nurse" [*] Network.  At one point Pfizer owned the site and its logo appeared but now their advertising agents carry the ball.  They [apparently] could not get the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation [equivalent to the AHA in the U.S.] to okay this ad so they got the "Canadian Diabetes Association" to "review" the ad for its "medical and scientific  accuracy". [*] in Canada, nurses cannot prescribe cholesterol lowering drugs - and they're not supposed to frighten people with testing or else a final exam (i.e. death).

Those involved should be sanctioned, if not sued, since there is no link and there never has been a link between cholesterol or a "cholesterol test" and all-cause/overall mortality, or as the ad says, "a final exam" [see figure].

The regulators should force highly visible TV and print corrections to be published that make it clear there is no "scientific and medical" link between cholesterol or its lowering and all-cause mortality as this advertising campaign frightens people to believe. Additional references  to the lack of links are George Mann [NEJM, ~1975; ALLHAT study website Aug. 2003; the last 9 months of  cholesterol lowering studies: PROSPER, ASCOT and ALLHAT; the small print on Lipitor's website and MD's  prescribing information/medical journal ads].

If you're Canadian, please forward this to those involved.
