[Alert] Stroke Meds CAUSING Stroke?!
It’s advice you’ve probably heard a thousand times… either at a doctor’s office or in some fancy Big Pharma commercial.
If you suffer from atrial fibrillation (A-fib), taking a blood thinner can reduce your risk of stroke.
There’s only one problem with that… it’s TOTAL NONSENSE.
A shocking study proves these blood thinners may be sending your chances of stroke through the roof.
So why aren’t A-fib patients being warned about it?
The latest research, by doctors at the University College London, revealed that blood thinners actually put you at a greater risk of stroke – exactly what they’re supposed to prevent!
And that risk is especially high if you’re suffering from A-fib or kidney disease.
The team from London followed thousands of patients – all over 65 – who’d been diagnosed with A-fib or kidney disease.
Half of the patients were taking a blood thinner and the other half were not.
After nearly a year and a half, analysis showed that those taking blood thinners were almost three times more likely to suffer a stroke!
You read that right: blood thinners cause three times as many strokes in patients with A-fib and kidney disease.
The whole notion of taking blood thinners for A-fib has been a bit of a scam from the start.
A-fib has to do with your heart rhythm, and blood thinners don’t do a thing to support that.
Another study from the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) found that blood thinners are being dramatically over-prescribed for A-fib patients.
This whole scheme may be making the drug companies a fortune – but it’s costing people their lives.
If you have A-fib and are taking blood thinners, schedule a talk with your doctor.
And tell him about this latest research. Many doctors only hear about new studies from drug company reps – and you can bet they’re not saying a peep about their products increasing your stroke risk.
