Statin drugs exposed as a MEDICAL SHAM as new research finds “no evidence” of improved survival
Although Big Pharma does its best to keep negative information about its drugs out of the spotlight, many people have heard about the dangers of statins by now. Nevertheless, some people feel that they are worth the risk, believing that their benefits outweigh any negative side effects that may occur. A new study shows, however, that this belief is false as there is no evidence that taking statin drugs improves a heart attack patient’s survival chances.
In fact, the study found that taking a statin daily over the course of five years following a heart attack only extended a person’s life by a mere four days, and there was no impact on decreasing deaths of any kind.
Statins are commonly prescribed to patients who have heart disease or are at risk of developing it, and they typically must take the drugs every day for the rest of their lives. Some drugs that fall into this category include the brand names Crestor, Zocor and Lipitor.
The study, which was published in Pharmaceutical Journal, was carried out by an international team of researchers at the New York University School of Medicine. The researchers had some harsh words for the pharmaceutical industry following these shocking results.
