Statin Drugs & Breast Cancer

Very interesting indeed... Although not surprising. Just like HRT that was purported to decrease Heart disease when in fact it did the opposite and then turned around and even increased breast Caner to boot. Of course there simply is no interest in safe alternative like the one described in my earlier post: "Vitamin C & Menopause".

RE: "Statin Drugs & Memory Loss": I also found this in relation to statin use and INCREASED breast cancer. "Effect of statins on breast cancer incidence".

The reason this is so interesting is that Pharma has dominated the links under GOOGLE (statins + cancer). They say statin use decreases breast cancerÂ…HmmmÂ…interesting!

Effect of statins on breast cancer incidence: Findings from the Sentara Health Plan.

Abstract No: 373

Citation: Proc Am Soc Clin Oncol 22: page 93, 2003 (abstr 373)

Author(s): J. E. Mortimer, R. Axelrod, K. Zimbro; Sentara Norfolk General Hosp, Norfolk, VA

Statins are commonly employed to lower cholesterol. These agents have a theoretical role in chemoprevention through downregulation of Ras, upregulation of p27, and alteration in estrogen levels. We wished to determine if the use of statins had an impact on breast cancer incidence in women who participate in the Sentara Health Plan. A total of 66,843 women over 35 years are included in this analysis. Statin use was identified from pharmacy data available since 5/97. A total of 1512 cases of breast cancer were diagnosed, 273 who were taking statins for a mean of 9.3 months. Of the 8344 women taking statins, 273 developed breast cancer. The median age for women who were taking a statin but did not develop breast is 55.3 years; and is 57.6 years for those who developed breast cancer. The data were analyzed according to age: (Table) These data suggest that young women who are treated with statins may be at increased risk for the development of breast cancer.

Very interesting. Am totally opposed to statins and where approriate Rx C, E, Folates, B12, Omega-3s and polycosanol. Plus 40:30:30 diet or Metabolic type diet.
My question is: of those women who succumbed to cancer in the trail do you know the incidence of Blood Type A. as my experience is that, especially in premenopausal the incidence compared to other types is approx. 90%

Good work, thank you

After one quick test for Cholosterol - not even a fasting test so am not sure whether my cholesterol test is accurate was told I have high cholesterol - not even told how high! Put on 20 mg Lipex (Simverstatin) per day. After 11 days developed backache so severe I stopped taking it as I would not have been able to keep working. Experienced breast tenderness, twitching in muscles. After what I experienced and from what I have now read Simvastatin is going down the toilet where it belongs!

It is disheartening to read all the suffering going on -- on the one-hand that some people have never taken responsibility for their health (i.e. just eat what they "like") and then the MEDI-CULT and pharmaceutical conglomerates "moving in" for the kill (literally). EVERYONE NEEDS TO WAKE UP AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEMSELVES. Health is not a "big busines." IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. WE MUST GET INVOLVED; WE MUST BECOME CONSCIOUS; WE MUST DO OUR OWN RESEARCH.

my husband was just diagnosed with breast cancer. He has been taking lipitor for 6 yrs, could this cause his breast cancer?

Posted by: patricia sanzari on September 21, 2008 02:26 PM


Ihave been on lipitor for 12 months I have had muscle pain on my feet and a stiff neck . And my teeth have decayed badly since last august when they needed no treatment so I am off them now. I was only put on them as a percaution because the is a family history and my colestrol was 5.5
