Cholesterol is Not the Cause of Heart Disease

It is time for the world to wake up before it is too late. Billions are being made each year on an inaccurate and convenient theory of heart disease that facilitates the widespread use of dangerous statin medications. Researchers are beginning to speak out but it is not easy; their careers are threatened, they are blacklisted from future funding, and they are shunned by other researchers and research institutions on the take. The statin lawn is the most carefully manicured lawn in the history of golf. Under the surface is a cesspool.
Of course, none of the main American and British medical journals care to shoot themselves in the feet by publishing the true risks and overestimated benefits of statins. It is nice to see that the Scandinavian Cardiovascular Journal has taken the bull by the horns.
Several articles in recent months have called attention to the severity of the statin fraud. One by a New York based researcher explains how the cholesterol theory of heart disease1 is misguided, concluding “The adverse effects of the cholesterol campaign on health, quality of life, the economy and medical research are inestimable. It is imperative that public health officials, physicians and patients are apprised of proof that it is misguided, malicious and malignant.”
Another by a Swedish researcher points out that the entire theory of heart disease2 upon which statin use is predicated is not a fundamental truth and that the use of statins needs to be curtailed to those who really need them (not many).
