The Grave Dangers of Statin Drugs—and the Surprising Benefits of Cholesterol

Once again the medical establishment gets it completely backward.
NPR recently ran a story that suggests terminally ill patients can safely stop taking cholesterol-reducing statin drugs. The final quote of the article is illuminating: “Most of the studies focus on when to start a medication; there’s been very little focus on when do you stop it.” No surprise there: whether you’re very young or very old, Big Pharma would love you to continue buying statins—for a very long time indeed.
Heart disease, as many of us know, is one of the leading causes of death in the US, killing about 610,000 people each year. Big Pharma—in the belief that cholesterol is the primary factor in heart disease—developed statin drugs that would lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. The drugs, which have been accompanied by massive marketing campaigns, are huge moneymakers for the drug industry, to the tune of about $29 billion worth of sales in 2013. That’s the kind of outrageous money you make when you convince one in four Americans over the age of 45 to take statins.
Over the years we’ve reported on a wide range of negative health effects that have been linked to these drugs. Here is a survey of some of these findings:

  • Statins interfere with the production of coenzyme Q10, which supports the body’s immune and nervous systems, boosts heart and other muscle health, maintains normal blood pressure, and much more.
  • Statins weaken the immune system, make it difficult to fight off bacterial infections, and increase the production of cytokines, which trigger and sustain inflammation.
  • They make some patients unable to concentrate or remember words, and are linked to muscle and neurological problems, including Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
  • Statins inhibit the beneficial effects of omega-3 fatty acids by promoting the metabolism of omega-6 fatty acids, which increases insulin resistance and the risk of developing diabetes.
  • There is evidence that statin use blocks the benefits of exercise. Exercise increases the activity and numbers of mitochondria, cells’ “power plants” that process sugars and fat. The study found that with statin use, mitochondrial activity actually decreases with exercise.
  • Statins work by reducing the body’s ability to produce cholesterol, which is essential to brain health—the brain is 2% of the body’s weight, but contains 25% of the entire body’s cholesterol.
  • Statin users have a higher incidence of nerve degeneration and pain, memory loss, confusion, depression, and a higher risk of ALS and Parkinson’s, according to Dr. David Williams in his July 2014 Alternatives newsletter. Statins also decrease carotenoid levels. Carotenoids, which are found in fresh fruits and vegetables and act as antioxidants, have a number of benefits, including protecting against cell damage, aging, and chronic diseases.
  • Statin drugs may also be driving Americans to overeat: a twelve-year study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that statin users increased their calorie intake by 9%, and fat consumption by 14.4%, over the study period, whereas those who didn’t take statins didn’t significantly change in either measure.
  • An animal study linked statin use to muscle damage. Animals that exercised on statins had 226% more muscle damage than those not given statins.
  • They affect the quality of sleep.
  • Statins increase the risk of prostate and breast cancer.
  • Statins are known to cause liver damage by increasing the liver’s production of digestive enzymes.
  • Statins also speed aging and lower sex drive.
  • Statins have been linked to aggressive and violent behavior in women.

Despite these widely documented risks, the media’s coverage of any adverse side effects is typically followed by the reassurance that the benefits of statins outweigh the risks.
Even when it comes to heart disease prevention, conventional thinking gets it wrong. The American Heart Association, for instance, published a study based on the outdated, simplistic notion that there are two kinds of cholesterol: “bad” (LDL) and “good” (HDL). The AHA’s dietary guidelines are also centered on the debunked notion that “bad” cholesterol causes heart disease, and that since saturated fat may raise “bad” cholesterol levels, it’s the ultimate dietary evildoer. And here’s the kicker: the AHA’s guidelines could lead to 33 million healthy Americans taking statins.
What the AHA does not seem to understand is that cholesterol is vital to human healthWe’ve noted in the past that cholesterol isn’t the ticking time bomb most people have been led to think—in fact, the real danger is that our cholesterol levels can get too low as we age! Even “bad” cholesterol is essential.

Even government agencies are realizing that cholesterol isn’t the dietary bogeyman it has been made out to be. The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, a project of the FDA and USDA that sets government recommendations for a healthy diet, is about to withdraw its longstanding guidelines that recommend avoiding high cholesterol foods.
While it is now clear from the science that cholesterol is not the demon behind heart disease, it’s equally clear that poor eating habits, lack of exercise, and obesity are direct causes. The good news is that heart disease can be entirely reversed through diet! In a recent article, Dr. Joseph Mercola stated that the Paleo diet can be very effective in reducing blood pressure and triglyceride levels—more effective, actually, than any statin drug. In addition, Dr. Mercola recommends a ketogenic diet, which actually increases fat intake, albeit using healthy fats.
These kinds of integrative approaches to health and prevention, however, stand in the way of one of Big Pharma’s largest cash cows, so it’s no wonder we don’t see them (or the scientific studies that show how dangerous statin drugs are) more widely publicized. Watch these pages over the next couple of weeks for our follow-up article on alternatives to statins.


  1. The whole cholesterol “problem” has been a scam from the beginning! As always, it is all about the money! Most Doctors work for the drug pushers, not their patients! If you want to live a long life, stay away from Doctors. Doctors are the #1 cause of death in the USA!!

    1. Well said. We are – and will be learning more as time goes on – about other scams brought about by Big Pharma, Big Food, and all the other large corporations; including government agencies ….

    2. it is soooo very hard to go against your doctor when he prescribes this stuff. so, yes, stay away from docs as much as possible.

      1. Jackie – It’s not difficult at all to refuse medicine – not only is your birthright, but it is actually your legal right as stated under “Patient’s Rights” – there’s a copy on the wall of every medical facility. Knowing that Big Pharma gives kickbacks to Physicians to push certain drugs, the doctors who go along with the program have a vested interest in writing those prescriptions. I’m not saying all doctors are in on it – but getting back to protecting yourself. What I do is my own research – it’s precisely why I came here today. I’m researching the statin my doctor prescribed – and I’m not taking it! If you are capable of reading & processing information sensibly, you are capable of your own decisions on whether or not the medicine you’ve been prescribed is in your best interest. Don’t ever think just because he’s a “doctor” that he knows best – and don’t ever blindly believe him. Do your own research in forums like this one – and don’t ever buy into anyone telling you, “You’re not a doctor so you can’t know what’s best for you.” You CAN.

      2. If you stand up for yourself the doc will back down. One doc wanted to give me Cipro until I researched the side effects. I told him I could NOT take the drug, so he gave me something less harmful. Keep in mind that many drugs have serious side effects that are worse than the disease they are supposed to treat.

        1. well, I wasn’t referencing statins, instead, a drug that binds to estrogen receptors to help keep cancer away after a lumpectomy. I was prescribed tamoxifen, at the time, it was hailed to prevent cancer 50% from recurrence. Well, when your oncologist uses such authority, and tells you what a miracle drug it is, it makes you stop and think. It’s prescribed for 5 years, and my version was 10$ a pill (at the time). I didn’t have part D m/care so was gonna by on my dime, but after investigation (and the 50% was bunk), weighed the pros and cons, and decided I could pass. well, my friend had HER lumpectomy at the same time, and did take the full 5-year course. We are both still alive and cancer free(???). It seemed like she was always complaining about side effects. Who knows? It ain’t over til it’s over. And…in retrospect, am not entirely convinced I should have taken the radiation.

          1. That’s anecdotal evidence, i.e., not scientific or meaningful. A sample size of two is statistically irrelevant. As for the side effects, that to me is a different story, so your friend probably did experience many side effects. Modern medicine has saved my life three times in the past two years (I have type II diabetes) but there is always a trade off when dealing with their “cure” and overall health. Antibiotics are a miracle but they come with a price as they kill off beneficial bacteria as well as life-threatening bacteria.
            I think it is foolish to swear off all modern medicine but I also think a healthy amount of skepticism and knowledge may save your life. A doctor prescribed me a statin drug (from an emergency room visit that turned into a week-long stay in the hospital) without even knowing my medical history. Suffice to say I tossed the pills in the trash after reading this article (and only took one out of curiosity about a week ago).
            I think we as a society are capable of creating effective drugs without all of the horrible side effects. Unfortunately the root of the problem runs very deep, all the way back to medical school. They ridicule natural medicines (irony) even though all of their medicines come from nature to some degree or another.

          2. I am a LCHF Banter and the group I am in have a lot of T2 diabetics who now are off their medications, and people off statins and all sorts of medications, the proof is in that way of eating

      1. Yet the docs say that guns are a “medical problem” in our society! Ha! What about all the thousands of people that die from the wrong drugs they prescribe? Far more than die from guns.
        Doctor errors kill three times as many people as die from guns, yet the docs want to ban firearms. NOTE: If a doctor asks if you have a gun in the house, reply firmly, “That question is not relevant.”

    3. Keep in mind that doctors often receive large kickbacks from the drug companies for the prescriptions they write. Big Pharma has the highest profit margin of any major industry! They manufacture pills in Mexico for 1 cent each and sell the for $10.00 each. Over the past ten years, many companies have hiked the cost of their drugs as much as 5,000%!

      1. And all of us, instead of being outraged, allow them to do it. The world is in a sorry state partly because the world is filled with so many cowards and brainwashed sheeple.

        1. 1% of the people make it happen
          3% of the people watch it happen
          96% look around and say “What Happened”

      2. My wife is a type 1 diabetic. her insulin through our insurance has a $267 co pay for a 4 week supply. In Mexico, same drug, same manufacturer, same box, same amount = $25. We go to Algodones, Mx. walk across the border and buy a years supply. /We also get our dental work done there, 1/10 the cost as the U.S. and they have better equipment than most dentists in the US.

    4. It has been estimated that more than 50,000 people a year die from medical errors, wrong prescribed drugs, etc. About 400 people die each year from gun accidents, yet the AMA and CDC say guns are a “serious health problem.” Doctors, concentrate on your own errors before yammering about guns!

    5. My doctor takes Statins. His cholesterol was 290. He believes his high cholesterol is hereditary. He’s certainly not taking them to enrich the drug companies. I however will not take them.

  2. I have a nutritional supplement which reduces total lipids, increases the HDL/LDL ratio and reduces triglycerides. These are things that statin drugs are alleged to do, but this nutritional supplement does not have harmful side effects. Since it has not been approved by the FDA, and it cannot be patented, it cannot be advertised as a replacement for statin drugs. The supplement is Artichoke Leaf Extract. I know it works on the basis of a dramatic change in my blood test results that puzzled my doctor, and because I found a German study (performed in 2000 I think) with results which matched the change in my blood test results.

  3. Statins are second only to vaccines for the biggest medical scam. Complete biological nonsense start to finish and there were vocal critics the entire time, but our big pharma owned media never voices the dissenters’ knowledge and opinions (can’t upset the guys paying for the ads…mainstream ‘journalism’ is a complete farce).

  4. My wife, Terry & I have been telling the story found in the first link since we learned the story of CoQ10 lab tests on mice with lung cancer in Sept 2007. The first link was published by health editor Barbara Minton in her story on the deadly effects of Statins in destroying CoQ10. The other links are from the National Institute of Health and other well written articles on this same subject:
    The problem is what to do? The FDA received a petition of over 3 million signatures to demand that CoQ10 be prescribed with statins. Deaf ears and the head of Codex Compliant FDA has been an ex-VP Monsanto, appointed by Obama. Reagan hired Rumsfield choice of Searle to head FDA and release sodium cyclamate:
    In 2008 Ron Paul stated in New Hampshire that he would eliminate 60% of FDA and replace the remaining 40% with people who would evaluate natural supplements. Ex-Rep Denis Kucinich passed a bill to give Co-enzyme Q10 to PTSD war veterans:
    My friend in Florida tried to get the head doctor of veterans to initiate program. The AMA is violently opposed to have everyone take CoQ10, in either Ubiquinone or Ubiquinol form, everyday, forever. If everyone does this Human natural immune system will operate at 100% as long as we eliminate chemicals in our food supply.
    We can get all the organizations that provided these links to draft a new petition., Care2. All these petition sites should combine and issue world wide petitions to defeat the AMA, FDA, & Big Pharma from killing us with vaccinations and statins that destroy liver and brain and cause cancer by permitting free radical cancer cells from attacking an oxidized cell. Co-enzyme Q10 gives 100% oxygenation to every cell, except brain cells.

  5. the real culprit in CVD (and in aging in general), is arterial calcification.
    cholesterol is an “innocent bystander” in this process.
    there are a few supplements out there that mitigate calcium deposits, but I won’t mention them here lest I come across as a shill.
    do your research 🙂

      1. you know nothing of which you speak.
        calcium accumulates in your arteries and kidneys when one DOESN’T get enough calcium via their diet.
        in the absence of sufficient calcium intake, your body begins drawing it out of your bones.
        it’s a delicate balance though, as too much calcium intake will result in the same thing — the mineral “hanging around” where it isn’t needed.

  6. Everything in this article can be applicable to my own personal health situation and I’ve told my doctor I want all statin drugs removed from my medicine cabinet. I feel so much better now it’s amazing. Somebody has to stop this poison and get it off the market.

    1. They won’t get it off the market because it is so profitable. Drug companies have the highest profit margins of any industry, don’t forget.

  7. look… anything GOD has your own body making, aside from what you ingest, has a good purpose. I knew, and have been saying all along its just another fake story to try to scare people, who never use common sense, or research anything, and listen with total faith to some brainwashed medical thug errr dr with a govt subsidized degree/license. The govt we have has an agenda, old people get the bad end of every stick, so do poor, disabled and those who have too many kids. They are godless, loveless and greedy they pander to the rich and powerful which most of us are not.

  8. Other than the biochemical details – or at least some of them – i knew this in 1978 when i first started looking at natural healing and biochemistry.
    It’s that MD worship garbage – they don’t deserve the respect that they get, although many deserve MORE respect than they receive. Those using good, natural healing modalities because they have the courage to go against the pressures of conformity. Since about 95% of MDs have no training in biochemistry – they tend toward cluelessness when it comes to actual healing and health. Cover a symptom – sure! Take X drug and the symptom goes away. (and we’ll treat you for the problems that drug WILL cause…)

  9. I would like to see references that support your statements in the article.

    1. Scroll down and click read more on this comment, somebody provided a list of sources:

      Did you actually want to find the info or were you just playing devil’s advocate for the industry? 🙂

  10. Why is it too much to ask that everyone just works for the benefit of all?
    Is that really such a hard concept to understand? We need to stop dividing ourselves over our concepts and perceptions and realize we are all just humans living on a planet that allows us to exist and we should nurture it and ourselves (return the favour, without the natural world we are doomed. you will never truly own it or control it, ever). We should be living in a glorious world, united and dedicated towards space development; one where skillful artisans are the respected and not lying, deceitful crooks like the world we live in now.
    It is NOT just a dream and it CAN and WILL be accomplished at any cost to this toxic monopoly necessary. I Swear an Oath upon the Universe itself.

  11. Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. The USA founding fathers knew this. They warned of the dangers of centralizing power. They setup the best checks on government power they could at the time. It was supposed to keep government from wronging the people they’re supposed to serve. So, did it work? Is this government’s power held in check? Or does it continually wrong its own People? Has “abuse of power” and “wrong doing” by government gotten out of control? LOL!
    The problem with governmental abuse of power is that it always serves its Own INTEREST or SPECIAL INTEREST. And always to the detriment of the People’s and YOUR best interest. Governmental wrong doing will always be the inevitable result of unchecked power!
    Most government atrocities throughout history would never have gotten off the ground had there been at the time a mechanism for the People to Check and Balance government through Direct Participation in government!
    Abuse of power and wrong doing by government can and will be overturned and held in Check by the People when the political mechanism that puts them back into Direct Control of government is adopted.
    What political mechanism could put the control of government back into the hands of the People? There’s a political movement with said mechanism at its core. The core principle is that of true Checks and Balances on government power. – A “People’s Branch” of government allows the People to exercise DIRECT oversight of government. The People literally govern the government! Ultimately Checking and Balancing government power will bring those responsible for governmental power abuse and wrongs to justice!
    Here is actionable info that may help if read carefully…
    Who and what political movement reintroduced, into the public awareness, the concept of increasing Checks and Balances as a solution for controlling government wrong doing? They didn’t – We did! – www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org.
    There is a way to make government truly transparent and accountable: www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org
    There is a way to make government directly responsible to the people: www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org
    The People do not have to let the government work against them/the People! A People’s Branch will see that abuse of power and authority is punished: www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org
    Think for yourself! Think of what a People’s Branch could mean for You and/or Your loved ones’ finances, health, rights, freedoms, security and justice etc. Find out why a People’s Branch would be good for You and Your loved ones! Find out why a People’s Branch will result in a better future for Your children! You don’t have to take our word for it. A Reasonable, Responsible and Conscientious Person would find out if it truly had a chance to help them. They would talk to family and friends and find out how they feel about a People’s Branch and why?
    Reasonable, Responsible, and Conscientious People need to know that they should act NOW before things get worse and their numbers fall too low…
    Yet, realize that taking back control of government may not be easy. Always remember that the Reasonable, Responsible and Conscientious People are opposed in this epic struggle for Direct Participation in their government by SPECIAL INTEREST and those that serve them. – Namely their henchman – the GATEKEEPERS.
    Amazingly, these GATEKEEPERS are most often our own – leaders, organizations, political parties, politicians, elected officials, bureaucrats, public servants, print and broadcast news organizations, the media, radio/TV talk show hosts, authors, advocates, pundits, alliances, federations, websites and so called political action sites etc.
    They’re constantly among us – even out front. Don’t You get it? – To do their job for their masters, i.e. SPECIAL INTEREST, they must have positions as GATEKEEPERS. SPECIAL INTEREST knows that keeping the People as a whole under control requires a system of GATEKEEPERS. Whether or not the GATEKEEPERS are unwitting dupes or dumbed down or just compartmentalized cronies, most end up serving SPECIAL INTEREST over those they are supposed to serve i.e. Your and the People’s best interest!
    Checks and Balances!
    Who and what political movement reintroduced, into the public awareness, the concept of increasing Checks and Balances as a solution for controlling government wrong doing? They didn’t – We did! – www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org.
    Many GATEKEEPERS use the words Checks and Balances every day. Yet, why don’t they want You to know about the ultimate mechanism for implementing them. www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org.
    You may wonder if they even know about us. Yes, they know about us but refuse to acknowledge our efforts. They have even started to manipulate our words and blocking our message that the Ultimate Checks and Balances on government can and will come from the People’s Direct Participation in government. They don’t want this political movement challenging their power. Why do you think GATEKEEPERS give every political genre of any political persuasion a venue and forum? Yet, no GATEKEEPER will even openly take up discussing the remote possibility of a People’s Branch of government? WHY?
    Isn’t it because they know that anything other than the People Participating Directly in government offers little or no real resistance to the corruption of the power structure? They realize that the People Participating Directly in government, a People’s Branch, changes everything! They know that, with a People’s Branch, the People will no longer allow government to serve SPECIAL INTEREST over the best interest of the People – YOUR best interest!
    Yet, the system is designed to allow the People a reactive mode only. The People are only offered pretend paths for changing government’s wrong doings (i.e. voting to elect officeholders, organizing, campaigning (for so-called good people), running for office (by so-called good people), public protests, marches, demonstrations, rallies, sit-ins, calling and/or writing your elected officials etc.) At best the pretend methods only slow government wrong doing temporarily. GATEKEEPERS are paid to direct the People/You into these pretend paths which will only burn out good and well-meaning People by burning up and wasting their time, energy, money and/or resources with little or no positive and/or lasting results. They’re paid by their masters, the real power behind government i.e. SPECIAL INTEREST, to keep the People/You from waking up to these truths…
    If the People/You don’t wake up then they will continue by default to control the closed system. They know that they win and You lose as long as they can direct You into the pretend paths that are designed to keep out any DIRECT Checks and Balances from the outside – We the People! Think about it! Why should it have taken women sixty years to get the right to vote? Why should it have taken so many years for blacks to get the right to vote?
    Isn’t it obvious, GATEKEEPERS push their pretend methods for improving and/or stopping government wrong doing because their pretend methods are designed to fail You and keep SPECIAL INTEREST in control? It’s the job of GATEKEEPERS to push their pretend methods because they are proven to keep the power in the hands of SPECIAL INTEREST. Yet, while the People are directed down their pretend paths to change and improvement, SPECIAL INTEREST continues their own direct access and participation with Your elected officials for the purpose of seeing to it that THEIR best interest gets served!
    Don’t you realize that if a People’s Branch of government had existed in the past then the People would have made sure that most of the bad things of those times would’ve been avoided? Yet, it’s still not too late. We must now focus on the present and prepare for the future. Remember, if you want things to be better for Yourself and Your loved ones, now and in the future, then You’ll join us. Together we’ll Check and Balance government and make sure that government serves the People’s and YOUR best interest!
    In the meantime most GATEKEEPERS will continue to push their PSYOP of getting You to believe that their pretend methods are new and they’ll work for You this time? It’s a sophisticated PSYOP. We know their PSYOP has worked in the past – maybe even on You. Many have fallen for it. Many still believe that these same old approaches will work for them. Yet, their pretend methods for improvement are not new and they’ll never work to insure that government serves YOUR best interest.
    REMEMBER, most GATEKEEPERS aren’t willing to help you see that the best and only long term solution is to cut through the political red tape and defeat the political trap masters at their own game! Isn’t it obvious why they act so much like Controlled Opposition? They are Controlled Opposition! If you study what many of these people actually say and how they say it, instead of only agreeing with what you think they are saying, then you too may see how controlled opposition really works. Yes they talk a good game. But they continue to direct your attention away from the obvious solution – YOU! You are the real solution! Once you make up your mind to have a Direct Participation in government on the things that affect You and Your loved ones then You’ll join us!
    Remember, most GATEKEEPERS continuously choose to serve their followers with only talk and do nothing of consequence for them. Most GATEKEEPERS mission is to program you to also only talk and do nothing of consequence for yourself! Talk is cheap. Their rhetoric is ultimately Controlled Opposition simply because they never engage a viable long term solution. Yet, we do and we have! Here: www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org
    So, the question is – WILL IT WORK ON YOU NOW? Now that You can see their game and You see a real viable solution for Yourself and Your loved ones – a People’s Branch! Only YOUR Direct Participation in government can insure that YOUR best interest is served! Can’t you see this?
    It is paramount that You Participate Directly in government where You can pass or fail Your elected officials vote on matters that affect You.
    Isn’t it foolish to let others, especially GATEKEEPERS – politicians, elected officials, public servants, bureaucrats and media mouthpieces, etc., continuously undermine Your best interest? Wouldn’t it be prudent to have a Direct say in the things that affect You and Your loved ones? Many Reasonable, Responsible and Conscientious people are now coming to realize that they need a mechanism whereby they can Participate Directly in government in order to help safeguard their own best interest!
    What could this mechanism be?
    The answer is a People’s Branch of government!
    The process to get a People’s Branch of government starts with the petition!
    Why a Petition? Because it’s time tested and a Constitution guaranteed method whereby People/Citizens can take action and change the governing and political process! People are now beginning to see how the Petition can be used to help protect their rights and freedoms. Therefore, none should forget or forgive any GATEKEEPERS that make fun of or demonize the Petition and its power and strength for good in the hands of good people!
    We advocate only patronizing the good GATEKEEPERS. i.e. ONLY The ones that are working to help you safeguard You and Your loved ones own best interest. Only they are truly worthy of Your attention, admiration, alliance, loyalty, and support! To find out if the ones You follow are truly worthy simply ask them – if they are interested in promoting the best way (Citizens Participating Directly in government as an incorruptible Checks and Balances!) for everyone to help safeguard their own best interest!
    If the GATEKEEPERS You follow genuinely care about the People’s/Your rights and freedoms then they will show that they have faith in the judgment of People as a whole! Many GATEKEEPERS demean the People for trying to exercise their best judgment when they’re forced into having to choose between two evils! Is that really fair when they demean the public and say it’s the public’s fault for electing a corrupt politician! Yet, it’s never really the People’s fault when some slick politician fools their constituents and gets elected – then double-crosses them! Wouldn’t the answer be to institute a foolproof mechanism to Check and Balance the double-crossers? A People’s Branch of government!
    The GATEKEEPERS that genuinely care about their follower’s best interest will have no problem in helping to get the word out about this powerful solution i.e. our Petition for a People’s Branch of government! With our petition we create a way to set-up a mechanism for corruption-proof Checks and Balances on government. If you’re not hearing about this movement from the GATEKEEPER you’re following then you’ll know they’re probably a Controlled Opposition GATEKEEPER SHILL.
    An ACTIONABLE Long Term SOLUTION for most of our problems exists HERE: www(dot)ThePeoplesBranch(dot)org
    People are coming to understand that not unlike the original need for a Constitution and Bill of Rights, the true strength of a People’s Branch of government is that it will help them protect themselves from the tyranny of government and SPECIAL INTEREST. They are coming to realize that their own best interest and the best interest of the vast majority of the people are one and the same.
    Divide and conquer has long been used by SPECIAL INTEREST to fool the People into believing it’s only their peers – others like themselves that are their real enemy. They don’t want YOU to know it’s really them, SPECIAL INTEREST, that’s YOUR real problem – literally. They do this simply by keeping the People’s/Your attention focused on what they say is the problem and its solution.
    Ever heard of Problem, Reaction, Solution? Don’t you get it? Look at what others say – here and/or elsewhere… Can’t you see it? Most have their attention subverted! Look at what they’re focusing on! Some, many or all may simply be some form of Troll or dis-information pusher. Even if some are wellmeaning they mostly affect You into diverting Your attention away from the systems control methods. Many do these things in hopes of stopping the People/You from seeing the Real Actionable Solution of a People’s Branch!
    Yet, people are coming to realize that SPECIAL INTEREST and their GATEKEEPERS are benefiting from Their Own Form of Direct Participation (i.e. influence/manipulation) in government at the expense and detriment of the People’s/Your Own Best Interest. Therefore, until the People/You wake up and adopt this, People’s Branch of government, mechanism for Direct Participation in government, then the People’s/Your own best interest will only continue to suffer.
    Yet, it is exactly because SPECIAL INTEREST will always continue to trample the People’s best interest that from time to time Reasonable, Responsible and Conscientious people have to resort to revolution – violent or otherwise!
    ABOVE EVERYTHING THE PROPAGANDISTS THROW AT YOU – REMEMBER THIS: A People’s Branch of government can and will Stop/Reform/Amend/Reverse and Heal the power structure and justice system. A People’s Branch will see that those responsible for governmental wrongs are justly punished!
    Wake up or die asleep it’s up to you! Reasonable, Responsible and Conscientious people are choosing to wake up! You too can Wake-Up to the only non-violent way to take your government away from SPECIAL INTEREST.
    Only when citizens have a direct participation in their government concerning matters that affect them will their and their loved ones’ issues (Freedoms, Rights, Security, Financial, Health, Political and Justice etc.) have a true chance to be properly addressed!
    Your Direct Participation in government on matters that concern You and Your loved ones is paramount!
    A People’s Branch creates the best way to Check and Balance government! If SPECIAL INTEREST continues to get their way then You and Your Loved Ones may lose everything! Why not help us help you?!
    Every Reasonable, Responsible and Conscientious person should be asking themselves WHY DO LEADERS OF BOTH MAJOR PARTIES HATE THE IDEA OF A PEOPLES BRANCH?
    Those that truly seek fair and equitable solutions can find them at The People’s Branch. Implementing a People’s Branch in your local area is the key you have been waiting for….
    Ultimately a People’s Branch of government will hold accountable those behind government’s multifaceted injustices and wrong doings – namely, the governmental authorities doing SPECIAL INTEREST bidding!
    Additionally, governmental persons acting against the best interest of the People should be forewarned that, at a future date, their actions may be deemed unlawful and therefore punishable. They should be aware that their actions or lack thereof that result in the creation of wrongs, such as so called “trade agreements,” that ultimately harm the People’s best interest may at some point be adjudicated to be harmful and therefore unlawful. Further, it would be wise of the wrong doers to realize that they, the perpetrators of governmental wrongs, may be held responsible and accountable for those wrongs as easily as a simple declaration or adjudication! Said wrongs may have dire consequences for those found to have helped implement or aided their authorization, through their actions or lack thereof. Those individuals may be found guilty of sedition and/or treason and tried for treason to the United States of America. Any and all elected officials and officeholders would do well to remember that there’s no statutes of limitation for the crime of treason!
    Many governmental wrongs such as “Fast Tracking, NAFTA, TPP, Shielding GMOs and their harm from discovery etc.,” and others may yet result in charges and convictions of treason for those responsible and accountable for their implementation. Charges and convictions for treason may be possible if it’s found that government officials failed to represent the best interest of the People and their actions subsequently turn out to undermine national security. It should be understood that any governmental officials, especially current or ex-presidents and current or ex-congressional officeholders, may be open to charges of treason should their actions and/or lack of actions be deemed to have ECONOMICALLY undermined national security. Everyone would do well to remember that the final judgment rendered by the People concerning many governmental wrongs has yet to be written!
    Did you hear that? GATEKEEPERS – What’s your response? Why do GATEKEEPERS always refuse open debate with this political movement? Why would any GATEKEEPER have a problem bringing this political movement to their followers and the masses? What part of the people’s ability to participate directly in their government thereby creating an incorruptible Checks and Balances upon governmental wrongs – atrocities and corruption – DON’T YOU GET?…
    GATEKEEPERS can’t name one issue or one problem that a People’s Branch would make worse! Yet, we can name any number of issues and problems that a People’s Branch will make better, improve and/or solve for WE THE PEOPLE!
    Why not advocate for a People’s Branch of government and let all the GATEKEEPERS you follow know that you want them to openly debate the merits of a People’s Branch to Check and Balance government?

    1. You people are both seriously uninformed, believing what you want to believe, and denying science. You are a menace to your children and indirectly to your community with the attitude re: vaccination. What about the success in eradicating small pox? preventing poliomyelitis? Yes I know there are some side effects, but more lives are saved by a huge factor with immunization. And No!!, immunizations do not cause autism!!

      1. If you had a child who was perfect in every way before being vaccinated, (waited til she was 2 yo) then watch the immediate disintegration of that perfection after the vaccine, it might make a believer out of you, but since you have no clue, go ahead a get the vaccines! It’s a rude awakening when it happens to you!! Yes the polio vaccine was a godsend, but when Big Pharma sees the money it brings in, they pervert and capitalize on it with impure and untested poisons and insist our kids need them all when they actually do not! Every parent needs to do their research and make an informed decision, not just take for granted the doctor knows best…he gets paid handsomely to make you think that! An honest doctor will want you to know the facts! You cannot in all honesty or from experience say they don’t cause autism. How about the fact that since they now try to push these immunizations on newborns, there are so many more cases of autism that ever before? You refuse to see the connection?! To each his own. You are entitled to your opinion, but it is still just Your opinion.

    1. My mother took estrogen supplements after menopause because the doctor recommended them and she wanted to “stay young.” She died of uterine cancer at 57 years.

      1. Laurence,
        I’m so sorry. I remember my gynecologist who tried to get me and my sister to take those and she said the same thing, “It will keep you young.” Menopause is a normal change in women and we don’t need any medicine for it.

  12. Wife has necrotyzing autoimmune myopzthy treated with seven months now has had gall bladder removed YES YOU GUESSED RIGHT STATINS ALSO A DIABETIC

  13. 30 years ago, a doctor told me that I was a walking dead person because my cholesterol was so high. He said if I refused to take a drug he could not be my doctor … I said bye-bye. I was only 23.

    1. In some families, high cholesterol is hereditary. My friend Rose Mary in has had cholesterol levels of 220 all her life. She is 85 and never had a heart attack. Her mother was the same and lived to be 97.

  14. I was prescribed satins even though my cholesterol level was only 114. I have had bad dreams, depression, fatigue and pain in my muscles and Achilles tendons that began three days after I started the drug. Since I am now 73, I think this drug is worse than the alleged disease! They say that cholesterol levels after age 70 are not important. I think I will stop the statins!

  15. HI FOLKS just to let you no we have found someone in SA SOUTH AUSTRALIA who is helping wife putting back nutrients into body that the statin drugs have blocked pathways while the hospital treated her for approx 22 months there was little progress made WE HAVE PUT IN COMPLAINT ABOUT HER TREATMENT and is being investigated after wifes last lot of treatmnent she almost collapsed in lift and kiosk AFTER 5 TREATMENTS OUTSIDE HOSPITAL with a doctor who treats other patients as well cancer lymes disease ,,, im glad to say there is some good results emerging from tests i have 2 journalists that are folllowing our case and have looked into the use of statin drugs across the world 2 thousand alone in south carolina suing pfizer its all about shareholders never about health so much on statins on net good luck to everyone fighting a disease hope all works out ken

  16. Keep in mind that the USA is one of the few countries in the world where drugs are allowed to be advertised in the media – look at all you see on TV. The advertising budgets of the big pharma companies are huge, which is one reason why drugs cost so much. People have been conned into believing they cannot live without these drugs. True, sometimes they are necessary, but it is estimated that 50% of all prescriptions are unnecessary, and can even be harmful.
    Hooking people on drugs starts in the schools, where kids are force-fed Ritalin and other harmful chemicals. If you can hook a child on drugs, you have a customer for life.

  17. People need to restrict animal fats and use olive and avocado oils and avoid transfats. Eat more fiber!
