Statins and Cholesterol
 
08:17
Statins are one of the most highly prescribed and commercially successful drugs in modern society, due to their ability to decrease LDL-cholesterol and lower the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Learn more about the history, mechanism, and side effects of statins in this episode of Medicurio. Other lipoprotein particles: You may have heard of LDL cholesterol as "bad" cholesterol because it clogs up the blood vessels with plaque. Its counterpart, HDL or "good" cholesterol does the opposite - HDL particles move throughout the bloodstream and pick up any cholesterol it finds and brings it back to the liver. Often times, plaque formation is dependent on both how much LDL and how little HDL there is in the blood.

The Statins Myth: Heart of the Matter (Part 2)
 
29:11
In October 2013, Catalyst aired Heart of the Matter – a two part program dealing with statins, cholesterol and heart disease. Following a number of complaints, the ABC’s independent Audience and Consumer Affairs Unit investigated the programs. While acknowledging the importance of public health issues relating to the efficacy of heart disease treatment and the contrasting opinions of highly-qualified scientists, the A&CA has concluded that while both programs met the ABC’s editorial standards for accuracy, a section of part two was found to breach impartiality standards. The full investigation report can be viewed here http://about.abc.net.au/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Catalyst-Heart-of-the-Matter-ACA-Investigation-Report.pdf.

Statins Mechanism Of Action *Animated*
 
03:47
STATINS ARE A GROUP OF MEDICATIONS THAT REDUCE CHOLESTEROL LEVELS, THEY WERE DISCOVERED BY AKIRA ENDO IN 1971 A JAPANESE BIOCHEMIST. THERE ARE SEVERAL STATINS IN THE MARKET CURRENTLY WHICH ARE EASY TO REMEMBER BECAUSE THEY ALL END WITH THE SUFFIX STATIN. CHOLESTEROL IS PRODUCED BY THE LIVER AND TRANSPORTED BY LIPOPROTEINS WHICH CONSIST OF TWO TYPES, LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN LDL WHICH IS KNOWN AS THE BAD FAT, IT'S MAIN FUNCTION IS TO TRANSPORT CHOLESTEROL THROUGHOUT THE BODY, THE OTHER TYPE IS HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN ALSO KNOWN AS GOOD FAT, THIS TYPE OF LIPOPROTEIN REMOVES EXCESS CHOLESTEROL AND CARRIES IT BACK TO THE LIVER FOR DEGRADATION. HOW DOES IT WORK? STATINS WORK BY COMPETITIVELY INHIBIT HMG COENZYME A REDUCTASE THIS ENZYME CATALYZES THE REDUCTION OF HMG COENZYME TO MEVALONATE. WHICH IS THE RATE LIMITING STEP IN HEPATIC CHOLESTEROL BIOSYNTHESIS, INHIBITION OF THIS ENZYME DECREASES CHOLESTEROL SYNTHESIS LEADING TO AN UPREGULATION IN LDL RECEPTORS IN THE LIVER, THIS INCREASES LDL UPTAKE BY THE HEPATOCYTS DECREASING THE AMOUNT OF LDL CHOLESTEROL IN THE BLOOD. WHO SHOULD STATINS BE GIVEN FOR? ACCORDING TO THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF CARDIOLOGY, STATINS ARE GIVEN AS A PREVENTION OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE IN PATIENTS WITH LDL CHOLESTEROL MORE THAN 190 MG/DL. ON AVERAGE STATINS CAN LOWER BLOOD LDL BY 70 MG/DL WHICH TRANSLATES INTO AN ESTIMATED 60% DECREASE IN THE NUMBER OF CARDIAC EVENTS LIKE HEART ATTACKS OR SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATHS. CONTRAINDICATIONS OF STATINS, BEING DRUGS THAT ARE METABOLISED AND EXCRETED BY THE LIVER, STATINS ARE CONTRAINDICATED IN CASES OF CHRONIC LIVER DISEASE, OR ELEVATION OF SERUM TRANSAMINASES. STATINS ARE ALSO NOT GIVEN IN PREGNANCY OR LACTATION AS THEY IN CATEGORY X. LIFESTYLE MODIFICATION IS STRONGLY ADVISED TO PATIENTS ON STATINS THESE MODIFICATIONS INCLUDE, LESS CALORIC INTAKE, LOW ANIMAL FAT DIET, AND PHYSICAL EXCERCISE. MONITORING CREATINE KINASE IS IMPORTANT IN PATIENTS TAKING STATIN AS MYOPATHY IS ONE OF THE MOST COMMON AND DANGEROUS ADVERSE EFFECT OF THIS CLASS OF MEDICATIONS

Statins - Debate of the Century - Veith New York 2017 - Cardiovascular
 
06:29
Statins - Debate of the Century - Veith New York 2017 - Cardiovascular Ground-breaking research, was highlighted at the biggest vascular meeting in the world in New York this November, and was presented by the world leading cardiovascular expert Professor Sherif Sultan, President of International Society for Vascular surgery. At the VEITH 2017 conference , Prof Sultan argued that the benefits of the widely used heart medicine - lauded by industry sponsored research - is based on flawed science. New data showed, that improvements in cardiovascular health are instead due to government-backed initiatives with smoking ban in public places. Studies have exhibited that statin use had induced, diabetes mellitus, cancer, early premature cataracts, hearing loss, suicidal ideation, peripheral neuropathy, depression, benign intention tremors and Parkinson´s disease, pulmonary interstitial pneumonitis and dysfunctional breathing , interstitial cystitis and bladder wall instability, herpes zoster, impotency, and cognitive impairments. Moreover, clumsiness, attention and psychomotor speed were alarming in young statin users. In some of these studies the side effects disappeared with discontinuation of the statins and worsened with re-challenge. All such major adverse clinical effects were due to lowering the cholesterol in otherwise normal subjects. The controversial cholesterol busting drugs, statins, have done nothing to reduce deaths from heart disease since being brought into widespread use more than two decade ago.

Statins can increase the risk of heart attacks and there is no evidence to support patients taking them, warn researchers The report suggests statins are more likely to cause calcium in the arteries Statins block production of vitamin K, which stops calcification of the heart Report suggests there is 'no evidence' to support people taking drug Around 12 million people in the UK take statins to lower cholesterol By SHARI MILLER FOR MAILONLINE PUBLISHED: 15:33, 10 January 2016 | UPDATED: 18:05, 10 January 2016 http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-3392611/Statins-increase-risk-heart-attacks-no-evidence-support-patients-taking-warn-researchers.html A new report suggests people are actually at greater risk of a heart attack if they take statins A new report suggests people are actually at greater risk of a heart attack if they take statins Statins, which are designed to help protect people from heart failure, can actually increase the risk of a heart attack according to a new study. Researchers say the drugs, which are taken by around 12 million patients in the UK, are more likely to cause calcium deposits in the arteries, which can lead to a heart attack. Statins were developed to lower cholesterol, but they also block a molecule needed to produce vitamin K, which prevents calcification of the arteries. The author of the report, published in Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology, says there is 'no evidence to support people taking statins', which opponents say also cause other health issues including skeletal weakness and muscle pain. Professor Harumi Okuyama, of Nagoya City University, Japan, told the Sunday Express:'We have collected a wealth of information on cholesterol and statins from many published papers and find overwhelming evidence that these drugs accelerate hardening of the arteries and can cause, or worsen, heart failure.' Similarly, Dr Peter Langsjoen, a heart specialist based in Texas who is co-author of the study, said: 'These drugs should never have been approved for use. The long-term effects are devastating.' However, there is plenty of support for statins within the medical profession and the drugs are considered to generally lower cholesterol levels by 25 to 35 per cent. The medications Lipitor, Crestor, Zocor and other statins have been the standard treatment for lowering cholesterol for more than 20 years. Those pills work by curbing the production of cholesterol in the liver. Statins have also long been recommended for people who already have heart disease and have been credited with helping to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. A spokesman for MHRA, the Government drug regulator, said: 'The benefits of statins are well established and are considered to outweigh the risk of side effects in the majority of patients.' Last year, NHS watchdog NICE encouraged GPs to prescribe the cholesterol-busting drugs to anyone with a 10 per cent chance of having a heart attack. That change has resulted in 17million adults - nearly all people over the age of 40 - now being eligible to take the drugs.

World Renown Heart Surgeon Speaks Out On What Really Causes Heart Disease
 
11:01
http://preventdisease.com/news/12/030112_World-Renown-Heart-Surgeon-Speaks-Out-On-What-Really-Causes-Heart-Disease.shtml World Renown Heart Surgeon Speaks Out On What Really Causes Heart Disease We physicians with all our training, knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit we are wrong. So, here it is. I freely admit to being wrong.. As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries,today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact. I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.” Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol. The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease. Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice. It Is Not Working! These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible. The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated. The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences. Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive statin medications and despite the fact we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than ever before. Statistics from the American Heart Association show that 75 million Americans currently suffer from heart disease, 20 million have diabetes and 57 million have pre-diabetes. These disorders are affecting younger and younger people in greater numbers every year. Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped. Inflammation is not complicated -- it is quite simply your body's natural defence to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. The cycle of inflammation is perfect in how it protects your body from these bacterial and viral invaders. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury by toxins or foods the human body was never designed to process,a condition occurs called chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is just as harmful as acute inflammation is beneficial. What thoughtful person would willfully expose himself repeatedly to foods or other substances that are known to cause injury to the body? Well,smokers perhaps, but at least they made that choice willfully.

He has served on the editorial boards of numerous medical journals and has received 30 years of federally funded support for his research. In the past decade, Dr. Diamond has expanded his research program to include cardiovascular disease and nutrition. His controversial research is an extension of an advanced seminar he directs at the University of South Florida entitled “Myths and Deception in Medical Research”, which emphasizes the critical evaluation of methods and conflicts of interest in health-related research. In recent years he added to his list of publications controversial papers on diet, cholesterol and statins, including one paper published in the peer- reviewed medical journal “Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology”, which described the deceptive practices employed by researchers promoting statins for the treatment of cardiovascular disease. Dr. Diamond has been invited to present his myth-busting views on nutrition and cholesterol to lay people and physicians at nutrition, cardiology, obesity and diabetes conferences all over the world.

Statins: The Greatest Scam In Medical History
 
14:32
Statins have become the biggest money maker in medical history with cholesterol being demonized at it's expense. Many Americans are losing their health for the drug companies wealth. Statins not only are ineffective but they increase the risk of heart attacks in most cases. This video discusses the mevalonate pathway in which the statins do their damage and which cholesterol is produced. This pathway is responsible for other key nutrients like CoQ10, dolichols, and glycoproteins. Cholesterol has no good or bad forms. Cholesterol is all the same. HDL and LDL are lipo-proteins or transporters for cholesterol. Both are needed as LDL drops off cholesterol to areas of the body in need of healing and HDL brings it back to the liver to be re-used. Cholesterol has many wonderful benefits for the hormone production to making of new cells to immune system function. By inhibiting cholesterol production you are hurting all of these vital systems. Even some natural alternative supplements for controlling cholesterol are dangerous. Red yeast rice is a natural statin and no better than the prescription drugs. Niacin taken at high dosages can build up too much homocysteine in the body, which is more risky for heart disease than LDL. Natural supplements for great heart health actually include CoQ10, Ribose, Magnesium, L-Carnitine, and many more I will talk about in this video. This video will set the record straight and reveal the truth when it comes to heart health, cholesterol, and statins.

For more informative videos go to: http://newsplexnow.com/ The U.S. Preventative Services Task Force continually reviews the latest information on preventative services. The Task Force has just released a new recommendation statement on statin use for adults who are at risk for cardiovascular disease. They recommend that people age 40-75 who have one or more of the following risk factors: high cholesterol, high blood pressure, smoking, or diabetes and do not have a history of cardiovascular disease, and whose chance of having a heart attack or stroke over the next 10 years is at 7.5 percent or higher, use a statin for prevention. Those whose risk is 10 percent or higher will benefit most. Although there are some associated risks, the use of a statin along with a healthy diet and exercise, can be a useful tool in the fight against cardiovascular disease

Statins and the Prevention of Heart Disease
 
03:44
Statins and the Prevention of Heart Disease Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) is a leading cause of premature death and disability; statin medications can reduce this risk and prevent heart disease. How Do Statins Work? Statin medications are a class of lipid-lowering medications that inhibit a step used by the liver to synthesize cholesterol. Statins reduce the health risks related to atherosclerosis by lowering cholesterol. Atherosclerosis is a cardiovascular disease where fatty cholesterol-laden plaques deposit within the arterial walls of the vascular system affecting the blood flow to vital organs. Statins have proven to be the most effective class of medication for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Can Statins Prevent Heart Disease? As one of the best-studied medications in randomized clinical trials, statins are proven to extend life and reduce the number of heart attacks and strokes, even among individuals with normal cholesterol levels. Statins are recommended for individuals with known ASCVD. In addition, statins are also recommended for men and women without known heart disease or prior strokes who are at increased risk for developing cardiovascular disease. A heart-healthy diet and exercise are recommended for everyone. Yet, even for individuals who have a healthy lifestyle or who make lifestyle improvements, statins can improve cardiovascular health and prevent heart disease for those at higher risk. What Are the Potential Adverse Effects and Risks? Statins are generally safe and well tolerated. The most common reported symptom is of muscle aches or cramps that may occur in 5% of people. Patients can frequently be switched to a different statin or a lower dose that is better tolerated. A small number of individuals may develop diabetes while on statins. The benefits from lowering the risk of death, heart attack, and stroke are likely to outweigh the development of diabetes in those individuals. Serious adverse effects with statins are rare. Women who are pregnant should not take statins because they may be toxic to a developing fetus. How Should I Decide If a Statin Is Right for Me? If you have a history of heart disease or stroke, taking a statin medication is recommended, without considering your cholesterol levels. If you do not have any known cardiovascular disease, you or your clinician should calculate your personal 10-year and lifetime risk for a cardiovascular event using a validated risk model available by online calculator or smartphone app. The calculator will integrate your risk factors, age, sex, ethnicity, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels to determine the future risk of a cardiovascular event. If you have a 7.5% risk over the next 10 years, a statin is recommended. If your calculated risk is 5.0% to 7.4% over the next 10 years, statin therapy should be considered. Prior to starting statin therapy, you should have a discussion with your physician regarding expected benefits, potential risks, management of other risk factors, monitoring plans, and your preferences.

As part of a lengthy independent study, patients who used statin medication to lower their cholesterol also reduced the risk associated with heart disease and coronary artery disease. In conjunction with the remarkably innovative cardiology program at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, patients who engage in regular exercise - and take doctor-recommended medications such as statins - have a variety of opportunities at their disposal to deter cardiac disease. Cardiologist Richard Goldweit, MD explains. For more information, visit http://www.BestHeartDocs.com or http://www.EnglewoodHospital.com

Statins: How do they really work? Inflammation
 
03:42
Most doctors prescribe statins to lower LDL (or "bad" cholesterol). However, that's probably not how statins prevent heart attacks and strokes. It's more likely due to an impact on cardiovascular inflammation. What is cardiovascular inflammation? Inflammation is similar whether it's causing arthritis, skin disease or inflammatory bowel disease: inflammation is the body's attempt to correct a problem. The immune system sends antibodies and immune cells. Immune cells release enzymes to "digest" tissue that should be there. In the artery wall, that tissue is plaque. Inflamed plaque is unstable. It can leak into the bloodstream and cause life-threatening clot formation. Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor. AFter seeing too many patients coming in dead from early heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine. He went on the run the post-graduate training program (residency) in Preventive Medicine at Hopkins. From there, he made a career of practicing and managing preventive medicine and primary care clinics. His late role in this are was Chief Medical Officer for Premise, which has over 500 primary care/ prevention clinics. He was also the Chief Medical Officer for MDLIVE, the second largest telemedicine company. Now he's running a small start-up, Prevmed. We provide face-to-face heart attack and stroke prevention in our home location of Nashville, TN as well as several other locations. We also provide preventive medicine by telemedicine technology to over 30 states. fbrewer@prevmedheartrisk.com info@prevmedheartrisk.com prevmedheartrisk.com -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "A new test for heart attack/stroke risk; PULS - the test we've been seeking? unstable plaque test?

Sacred Truth Ep. 47: Statins - Don't Believe All You're Told
 
08:00
To learn more: http://lesliekenton.com/health/video/sacred-truth-ep-47-statins-dont-believe-all-youre-told/ I continue to be horrified by guidelines issued by the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology, which speak of giving statin drugs to healthy people. Meanwhile, draft recommendations from the US Preventive Task Force have issued new directives claiming that healthy people should be taking statin drugs as a “preventative against possible future illness.” Their main plan is to see one third of all adults in the United States are put on statin drugs—44% of all men and 22% of all women—even if none of these people have ever had a previous heart attack or stroke. Statins are the most widely prescribed drugs on the market. One in four Americans over 45 are already on statins, despite more than 900 studies reporting dangerous side effects from these drugs. These range from heightened risks of cancer and diabetes to sexual problems, neuropathy, and liver dysfunction, as well as immune system suppression, and even a higher risk of cataracts. In Britain too, statins are the most commonly prescribed drugs, costing the NMS £450 million a year. Now 40% of adults (175 million people) are being advised to take the drug. If the new directives are put into practice by the UK medical establishment—as they are likely to be—the numbers of men and women being prescribed statins could well become legion. What are statins anyway? Statins are a group of drugs prescribed to lower cholesterol levels by inhibiting the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, which plays a central role in the production of cholesterol in the liver. Statins have many different names, such as Lipitor, Lescol, Mevacor, Altocor, and Zocor. These drugs are prescribed on the assumption that they will lower the risks of cardiovascular events and strokes. The new directives assert that, if given to healthy people, they could help protect the population from heart attacks and strokes at some time in the future. Happily, a growing number of cardiologists are strongly opposed to the new directives. What’s the problem with statins? Plenty: • They deplete your body of CoQ10, which is essential for every cell in your body, and ubiquinol. Both CoQ10 and ubiquinol keep the so-called bad cholesterol from doing harm to your body. However, very few mainstream doctors are ever aware of these dangers. One exception is cardiologist Steven Sinatra, founder of the New England Heart Center. Sinatra recommends that anyone taking statins should take between 100 and 200 mg of CoQ10 or ubiquinol each day as protection. • Statins lower Vitamin K2 in the body. This puts you at risk of deficiency of this vitamin, which contributes to chronic diseases, such as osteoporosis, cancer, and brain disease. • Long-term statin use—10 years or so—has been shown to increase your risk of diabetes, neurogenerative diseases, musculoskeletal problems, and even cataracts. Dr. Eric Topol, highly respected cardiologist and Professor of Genomics at Scripps Research Institute in California, wrote an excellent article for The New York Times Opinion Page in which he warns: “We’re overdosing on cholesterol-lowering statins.” Topol is especially concerned about the sharp increase in the prevalence of Type 2 Diabetes that is occurring in people using them. He writes: “Statins have been available since the 1980s but their risk of inducing diabetes did not surface for nearly 20 years. When all the data available from multiple studies was pooled in 2010 for more than 91,000 patients randomly assigned to be treated with a statin or a sugar pill (placebo), the risk of developing diabetes with any statin was one in every 255 patients treated. But this figure is misleading since it includes weaker statins like Pravachol and Mevacor—which were introduced earlier and do not carry any clear-cut risk. It is only with the more potent statins—Zocor (now known as simvastatin), Lipitor (atorvastatin), and Crestor (rosuvastatin)—particularly at higher doses—that the risk of diabetes shows up. The cause and effect was unequivocal because the multiple large trials of the more potent statins had a consistent excess of diabetes.” Meanwhile, a recent study by Jean A. McDougall and her colleagues in the Journal of Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention reveals that long-term use of statins increases the risk of both lobular and ductal breast cancer in women between 55 and 74.

The Dangers of Statins (Cholesterol lowering statin drugs Side Effects LDL cholesterol Myth CoQ10)
 
18:07
Statins (cholesterol-lowering medication) are heavily promoted, used by millions of people and one of the most widely prescribed drugs in the world. Health authorities claim statins reduce the risk of heart disease and strokes because they lower 'bad' LDL cholesterol. Yet these claims are contradicted by statistics and medical studies. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/07/20/the-truth-about-statin-drugs-revealed.aspx http://next-level-nutrition.com/?p=6075 http://naturalnews.com/032448_statin_drugs_scam.html http://www.ravnskov.nu/cholesterol.htm#a The hypothesis is that 'bad' LDL cholesterol clogs up arteries leading to heart attacks and strokes. However, medical research has shown that: 1. People with high cholesterol tend to live longer. 2. People with heart disease tend to have low levels of cholesterol. 3. Lowering cholesterol in a population does not reduce the rate of heart disease. 4. Statins increase(!) the risk of heart disease and strokes. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2005/05/28/cholesterol-heart.aspx http://drbenkim.com/articles-cholesterol.html http://drmalcolmkendrick.org/the-great-cholesterol-con http://cholesterolconspiracy.blogspot.com http://amazon.com/The-Great-Cholesterol-Myth-Disease/dp/1592335217 Statin drugs have become a huge global industry, generating more than $29 billion each year.

Heart disease continues to be the number one killer in the United States. Because of that, billions of dollars are spent every year on medications that reduce your risk of disease and death. Compounding this problem, many of the risk factors for heart disease seem "baked into the cake". Genetic factors can have a huge impact on people's risk, and those factors are almost always outside of one's control. Because of this, there are some who feel a certain amount of powerlessness to prevent heart disease. Recent research contradicts this, though, and should give us all renewed hope.

Cholesterol Deniers & Statins

Cholesterol deniers and cholesterol lowering medication such as statins. The truth doesn’t care what you think. Heart disease doesn’t care if you are a cholesterol denier. If you have a heart attack, and you are lucky enough to survive, the first thing they’re going to do after they stabilize you is give you a Statin drug to lower your cholesterol. They won’t care if you don’t believe LDL is not a risk factor for heart disease. They won’t care if you don’t believe total cholesterol is not a risk factor for heart disease. Cardiac arrest strikes almost 600,000 people each year, killing the vast majority of those individuals, says a new report from the Institute of Medicine. Every year in the U.S., approximately 395,000 cases of cardiac arrest occur outside of a hospital setting, in which less than 6 percent survive. Approximately 200,000 cardiac arrests occur each year in hospitals, and 24 percent of those patients survive. http://www8.nationalacademies.org/onpinews/newsitem.aspx?RecordID=21723 Truth Doesn’t Care What You Think . #RedPillVegan https://www.patreon.com/RedPillVegan Red Pill Vegan
