[REVEALED] Dangerous New Statin Risk for Seniors!
Statins risks are practically old news by now…
These drugs have already been linked to heart disease, diabetes, liver damage, muscle decay, and neurological disorders.
But that hasn’t stopped Big Pharma from pushing these USELESS cholesterol drugs
In fact, they’re the most commonly prescribed pills in the entire country!
And now that list of risks is just getting longer…
New research has uncovered a link between statins and a devastating, incurable disease – especially dangerous to seniors.
Here’s what you need to know.
Disturbing new research has revealed that statins cause an increased risk for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis – aka ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
For the study, published in the journal Drug Safety in April 2018, researchers analyzed the reporting odds ratio (ROR) of statin drugs and ALS.
The RORs would show which statins had the highest ALS risk and which had the lowest. Anything over a score of 6 is considered shockingly high.
All four of the most popular statins, however, scored well over a 6:
- Lovastatin aka Altoprev has a ROR of 107
- Simvastatin aka Zocor has a ROR of 23
- Atorvastatin aka Lipitor has a ROR of 17
- Rosuvastatin aka Crestor has a ROR of 9.09
Yes, you read that correctly… these risk levels are INSANE!
The study explains that these findings show a significantly elevated chance of developing ALS in association with statin use.
ALS is not just life-changing, it’s also fatal. And there’s no known cure.
You should never quit statins (or any prescription drug) cold turkey.
So, if you or a loved one are taking statins, it’s time to talk to your doctor about how to safely get off them a safer.
