The DEADLY Truth About Anti-Smoking Drugs
If you smoke cigarettes, your doctor has probably told you a thousand times to quit.
Easier said than done, right?
Of course, Big Pharma has promised for years that it has a solution that will help you kick the habit.
I’m talking about all of those patches and pills that are supposed to make your cravings vanish.
But these anti-smoking meds come with a dangerous risk that most people don’t know about.
And it could cost you your life.
New research, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, shows that when you try to quit cigarettes using anti-smoking drugs, you may be trading one deadly product for another.
Some deal, right?
The study included 8,000 smokers randomly assigned daily use of either Pfizer’s Chantix, GlaxoSmithKline’s Zyban, nicotine patches, or a placebo pill for 12 weeks.
And, surprise, surprise, researchers discovered heart-related deaths and a couple dozen non-fatal heart attacks and strokes.
That may come as a surprise to lots of Americans… but mainstream medicine has known about these risks for YEARS!
It’s even printed on the packaging that these patches and prescription pills can raise blood pressure and increase your risk of heart attack and stroke.
What’s more? They hardly work better than a placebo!
Some of the medications in the study only helped 23 percent of smokers quit.
The placebo, on the other hand, helped more than 13 percent of smokers kick the habit.
A difference, for sure. But maybe not a difference worth risking your life over.
If you or a loved one is trying to quit smoking, try the three G’s – ginger, ginseng, and grape juice.
Ginger helps with nausea, ginseng combats cravings, and natural grape juice helps detoxify your body.
All three are all-natural and easily found at your local health food store – and they don’t come with any risks.
