    Four Japanese researchers published an analysis on cholesterol guidelines and statin drugs in the April 2015 edition of the Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism. Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, the Scottish doctor who wrote "The Great Cholesterol Con" recently stated on his blog that he has read the entire 116 page review: "For many years I have told anyone who will listen that, if you have a high cholesterol level, you will live longer. Equally, if you have a low cholesterol level, you will die younger. This, ladies and gentlemen, is a fact. The older you become the more beneficial it is to have a high cholesterol level. This fact has become more difficult to demonstrate recently as so many people have been put on statins that the association between cholesterol levels and mortality has been twisted, bent and pumelled into the weirdest shapes imaginable. However, Japan, provides some very interesting data."

    I will be 75 years old this month and worked for TRW for over 25 years while there I was enrolled in their executive health program which meant I received a complete health check up every other year. In those check ups my cholesterol was never higher than 150. Despite that fact when I was 50 years old (1991) I had a heart attack with my left descending artery was 85% blocked. The doctors at Good Samaritan hospital in Los Angeles removed the plague with the roto router method turning the hard plague into powder. I was prescribed a Beta Blocker..which later I discovered carried many side effects. In 2007 (age 65) I experienced a second heart attack only this time I had an artery in the right side of my heart burst on the inside of the artery. After inserting a stent, I asked the head of cardiology (Good Samaritan) Why have I had two heart attacks when my cholesterol has never exceeded 150? He was standing at the end of my hospital bed and said "We are finding out that cholesterol isn't the problem, its inflammation" He explained the when a person has high inflammation, cholesterol acts like a Band-Aid and tries to cover up the inflammation but in doing so the cholesterol builds up in your arteries. Yet he prescribed a statin (Lipitor), the results were a disaster. after 6 months I stopped taking Lipitor and never looked back. Never again, now anytime a doctor prescribes a med, I research it completely

    They don't tell you about how the brain is made up of cholesterol and Statins can cause you to lose your cognitive abilities. It happened to Judge Judy on live television. She was babbling incoherent to the group.

    I have always had high cholesterol and because of shortness of breath was sent for and angiogram. The specialist looked at my high levels and told me he would discuss medication to contol it after he had performed the angiogram. When he saw the result he told me that my arteries were clear and I needed no medication. Similarly my 76 year old sister also with high cholesterol had a clear angiogram.

    My good doctor and any MD's I had in the last 40 years insisted for my own good to put me in statins for my high cholesterol level. to mention that all ways it's over 7.2 - to 7.9 Though I decline their offer since I Know better, My sugar is low, blood pressure low, heart pulse rate low, still they are not happy with the cholesterol... and I tell them I need cholesterol for leaving it's ok to have high coll. it is important the people to know some facts and take the interest of their health in their hands. no other than your self known better your own biology. The brain wash to see the doc and take pills for every tic-tac for longer living is the idyllic bank account for the medicos and pharmaceutical blood suckers, I see a doc only as a routine for some papers in demand. Cheers

    One time, my doctor told me that my cholesterol was high and prescribed lipitor to lower it. I took the pill. After some time, I had muscle pain. I told my doctor I wanted to stop taking the lipitor, and I did. The muscle disappeared when I stopped taking the medicine.

    The use of statins have long been associated with an increased risk of cancer, and higher mortality, apart from a host of other serious side effects such as muscle disorders, cataracts, pancreatitis, erectile dysfunction, brain dysfunction, diabetes, etc. The physiological processes these drugs accomplishes that are quite well understood, such as by their impairment of oxidative cell metabolism, the increase in inflammation and cell destruction, the lowering of cholesterol and steroid hormone production, the promotion of pancreatic injury, the blocking of insulin release, etc. Yet despite of the existence of that scientific knowledge, the medical business and the public health authorities keep ignoring it and continue to recommend statins to diabetics and make claims that they have a low risk profile despite that they are also significantly linked to cancer and higher mortality (just look at the propaganda put out by the Mayo clinic on statin drugs: "the risk of life-threatening side effects from statins is very low"). And because of such medical propaganda, few people are aware that the medical claims of benefits of statins are mostly based on flawed and fraudulent "scientific" studies conducted by people with vested interests. Obviously, a gigantic corporate business is protecting its profit interests, never mind the real facts.

    EXCELLENT study, details...and the absolute Truth of a Matter. Thank you Health Impact News for bringing all of these important findings to the forefront! As one who has never used a statin, but fought to educate others who were...it was years ago that I came across a PubMed study that was done in France with women
