The purpose of this site is to collect lab research by medical doctors about herbs that are proven to treat illnesses and counter the false attacks on herbs by the medical industry and false claims by alternative medicine. I let the science tell the facts.

Statin Drugs, deadly truth that statin drugs destroy the heart!

The deadly truth, cholesterol is not the killer, it is oxidative stress and low CoQ10 that causes the veins and arteries to become porous and cholesterol is the body's way to plug the leaks.

When oxidative stress or metabolic stress is reversed cholesterol is also reversed. Read for yourself the research reports by doctors that state the problem is not cholesterol but oxidative stress and lowered CoQ10 which results in heart damage.

1. "Reduction of serum cholesterol levels with statin therapy decreases the risk of coronary heart disease. Inhibition of HMG-CoA reductase by statin results in decreased synthesis of cholesterol and other products downstream of mevalonate, which may produce adverse effects in statin therapy...As atorvastatin reduces serum ubiquinol-10 as well as serum cholesterol levels in all patients, it is imperative that physicians are forewarned about the risks associated with ubiquinol-10 depletion."
(Webmaster: This report on one hand says statan drugs reduce heart problems, then reverses itself and says it causes heart problems. Physicians are not being forewarned about the risks or they are ignoring them because statin drug therapy is a leading drug in America causing millions increased heart damage.)

2. " The depletion of the essential nutrient CoQ10 by the increasingly popular cholesterol lowering drugs, HMG CoA reductase inhibitors (statins), has grown from a level of concern to one of alarm. With ever higher statin potencies and dosages, and with a steadily shrinking target LDL cholesterol, the prevalence and severity of CoQ10 deficiency is increasing noticeably. ..Statin-induced CoQ10 deficiency is completely preventable with supplemental CoQ10 with no adverse impact on the cholesterol lowering or anti-inflammatory properties of the statin drugs. We are currently in the midst of a congestive heart failure epidemic in the United States, the cause or causes of which are unclear. As physicians, it is our duty to be absolutely certain that we are not inadvertently doing harm to our patients by creating a wide-spread deficiency of a nutrient critically important for normal heart function."
(Webmaster: Why take a drug that interferes with CoQ10 the most important component in a healthy heart.)

3. "Lovastatin decreases coenzyme Q levels in humans. Lovastatin is clinically used to treat patients with hypercholesterolemia and successfully lowers cholesterol levels...Inhibition of this enzyme could also inhibit the intrinsic biosynthesis of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), but there have not been definitive data on whether lovastatin reduces levels of CoQ10 as it does cholesterol. The clinical use of lovastatin is to reduce a risk of cardiac disease, and if lovastatin were to reduce levels of CoQ10, this reduction would constitute a new risk of cardiac disease, since it is established that CoQ10 is indispensable for cardiac function. We have conducted three related protocols to determine whether lovastatin does indeed inhibit the biosynthesis of CoQ10...Although a successful drug, lovastatin does have side effects, particularly including liver dysfunction, which presumably can be caused by the lovastatin-induced deficiency of CoQ10."
(Webmaster: Proof that statin drug while lowering cholesterol also reduces CoQ10)

4. "Enhanced oxidizability of ubiquinol and alpha-tocopherol during lovastatin treatment..."This suggests diminished antioxidant-dependent resistance of LDL to the early phase of oxidative stress."
(Webmaster: Ubiquinol is proven to reduce cholesterol, but at the cost of increasing oxidative stress which is the cause of high cholesterol. In other words statan drugs increase the disease that caused high colesterol in the first place. )

5. "Lovastatin induces cell death in cardiomyocytes that is not reversible by coenzyme Q 10.

Definition: The myocardium is composed primarily of a collection of specialized muscle cells called cardiac myocytes or cardiomyocytes. They are arranged largely in a circumferential and spiral orientation around the left ventricle, the chamber that pumps blood to the systemic circulation.

(Why would anyone want to take a drug that causes destruction to heart muscle? To me this is another proof that doctors are blindly prescribing drugs based on propraganda by the drug companies who's intrest is to make a profit even if it kills people.)

Still not convinced then google "trugh about statin drugs" and read others warnings about it.
