Popular Med Boosts Cancer Risk 66%
Big Pharma is literally getting away with murder.
For years, they’ve been pushing lower and lower blood pressure standards.
And it was all part of a SCAM to get MILLIONS of Americans on meds.
Now, it looks like some of the most popular blood pressure drugs around are giving people cancer.
In fact, they could be raising your risk of one of the deadliest cancers around by a whopping 66 percent.
I don’t want you or someone you love to be the next victim.
Here’s what you need to know to stay safe.
Calcium channel blockers (CCBs) are regularly prescribed to treat high blood pressure and other problems like angina.
But new research from the Baylor College of Medicine has found that CCBs dramatically raise the risk of pancreatic cancer in menopausal women.
The study examined over 145,000 postmenopausal women between 50 and 79 years old.
Those who had taken CCBs were found to have a 66 percent increased risk of pancreatic cancer.
And the drugs were DEFINITELY the problem.
Researchers looked at other blood pressure medications, and found that people on CCBs were TWICE as likely to get pancreatic cancer.
That’s APPALLING. For many women, that’s a DEATH SENTENCE.
Depending on when it’s caught, the five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer can be as low as 1 percent.
You see, CCBs – such as Adalat CC, Procardia, and Cardizem – work by preventing calcium from entering blood vessel walls and heart cells.
This is supposed to reduce blood pressure.
But CCBs also boost levels of something called “sRAGE protein,” a common precursor to cancer and other diseases.
These drugs have also been linked to increased incidence of diabetes, which can also boost your pancreatic cancer risk.
And here’s the real kicker…
CCBs are considered among the least effective drugs for cardiovascular disease.
If you’re taking a CCB, talk to your doctor about alternatives (and whether you really need to be on blood pressure meds at all).
Also, supplements like CoQ10 and magnesium have been shown to lower blood pressure naturally.
