  • Statins: The Hidden Truth?

    Statins are the most popular drugs in history. Drug companies made $26 billion selling statins alone in 2008. There are 25 million Americans take them, and the number is escalating every year.

    One reason why statins are the best-selling drug category by far is that 92% of people taking them are healthy. The FDA has approved the prescription of statins to people at low risk for heart disease and stroke, who dont even have high cholesterol. Two years ago the American Academy of Pediatricians recommended that statins be prescribed for kids as young as eight years old.

    With sales statistics like this, youd think statins are wonder drugs. But when you look closely at the research, a different story emerges. Statins have never been shown to be effective for women of any age, men over 65, or men without pre-existing heart disease. Early studies did suggest that statins are effective for men under 65 with pre-existing heart disease, but later, more rigorous clinical trials has not confirmed this benefit.

    I know a lot of people are into statins. I am not advocating that they stopped taking the drug but I am encouraging them to research for more and ask their doctors for some possibilities of transferring into another drug or at least lowering the prescribed dosage.
