Relentless Statin Junk Science Continues
What a load of Cholesterol and saturated fat hogwash. Using statins at such high dose makes theses drugs anti inflammatory medications and that might be the reason why there is a reduction in heart attacks and strokes. Even that is a very expensive and highly dangerous from of anti inflammatory medication given that there are so many safer ways to reduce inflammation. Further the 29% reduction mentioned is a meaningless number. 29% of what? For example if the target population is only 1% then a reduction of 29% this means didly squat!
FAQ about Cholesterol & Heart Disease
What's a little cholesterol amongst friends?
Imagine lowing cholesterol to below 75, which should be a sure recipe for depression, amnesia and cancer. Only the pharma Mafia could consider this a great benefit to risk ratio. Billions of dollars world wide benefit to their bottom line that is.
Not to mention vitamin B and Coenzyme 10 (CQ10) depletion due to their use leading directly to congestive heart failure besides muscle, liver and kidney damage. Exactly what your pharma doctor needs to keep her/him rich and happy for ever and ever!

Safe nutritional based solutions such as Orthomolecular Solutions to Heart Disease are naturally never mention!
Given the perceived benefits of lowering cholesterol borders more on speculation then in fact (mostly from manipulated statistics) it is surprising that there is a need to reduce cholesterol at all. Yet Dr. Mirkin still seems to feel the need to do so indicates how ingrained the cholesterol lowering mantra has taken hold in the medical community.
Dr. Mirkin and his ilk seem also to be totally oblivious on the importance of saturated fats in health - then what else is new?
See: The Benefits of Saturated Fats
"Dr. Mirkin's cavalier, dumbed-down explanation of the PERMANENT damage caused by statins wrecking the delicate mitochondrial machinery that provides glucose and oxygen to working muscle is typical of the allopathic model: the chemical becomes the inviolate standard which is never at fault, and the response to the chemical is judged instead. So if statins ruin your muscles and you are too sore to lift a glass of water, and you die of a stroke despite rock bottom cholesterol, you are a "poor responder" and the drugs are blameless." Aliss Terpstra
So so true. Blame the victim strategy is so convenient and hence endemic in our society that it has pretty much become the norm for just about anything, all the way form fluorides to pesticide poisoning etc. etc.

Dear Dr. Mirkin: Are statin drugs the best way to lower cholesterol?
The Treatment to New Targets (TNT) study reported at the 2005 meeting of the American College of Cardiology showed that very high doses of 80 mg per day of Lipitor lower cholesterol far better than lower doses, and reduce the rate of heart attacks and strokes by 29 percent. At the 2006 meeting, the Asteroid study showed that taking 40mg per day of Crestar for one year removed plaques from arteries. These studies show that your doctor should try to lower blood levels of the bad LDL cholesterol as much as possible, probably to below 75. Statin drugs such as Lipitor usually don't cause many serious side effects, but they can cause muscle pains, particularly in heavy exercisers. On the basis of this latest research, doctors are encouraged to treat people at high risk for heart attacks with diet and high doses of statin drugs. People with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes are at the highest risk. All people at increased risk for heart attacks should restrict saturated and partially hydrogenated fats and refined carbohydrates, and base their diet on plants: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans and other seeds, whether or not you take drugs.

Democracy At Work? - PPM On Fluoride
Here is a commentary on the recent (Jan, 25th, 2011) Public Participation Meeting (PPM) on Fluoride in the City of London, Ontario. The meeting started with a strong pro fluoride stance form the City engineer. His lack of knowledge on chemistry of the toxic wastes used to fluoridate water could embarrass even a high school student never mind his own profession. He blatantly violated his "duty to public welfare" as... [read more]
