Statins reduce cholesterol but have side effects like memory loss, myopathy, cataract formation and increased risk of diabetes. Statin drugs deactivate the stem cells which are required for cellular healing. Eating an apple a day has shown to work equally well for vascular disease, with fewer side effects.
Side Effects Of Statins
As many already know, most of our body’s repair work happens at night while we are sleeping. As the body goes deeper and deeper into sleep, we release melatonin which is responsible for a lot of the repair work that goes on while we sleep.
Well, it is already well documented and understood that statin drugs block the enzyme required to make cholesterol. That is why they are anti-cholesterol drugs. Now we are not going to go into all the reasons that we need cholesterol; or how cholesterol stops arterial bleeds and stop us from bleeding to death. And we are not going to focus on how, in the process of blocking the body from making cholesterol, statin drugs block the body’s capacity to make CoQ10, which every cell of the body requires in order to make fuel.
Instead, today we are going to focus on how scientists are now acknowledging that these same statin drugs block the cell’s capacity to repair damage!
Impact Of Statin Drugs On Your Body’s Healing Ability
A study published in the American Journal of Physiology , states that statins may advance the process of aging and that long-term use of statins has been associated with adverse effects including myopathy (muscles), neurological side effects and an increased risk of diabetes.
According to the study, impact of statins on other biologic properties of stem cells provides a novel explanation for their adverse clinical effects. Statins make it difficult for cells to properly repair or for nerve issues to be resolved and consequently destroy memory. In addition, it is now suggested that these drugs could also play a role in cataracts, fatigue, liver problems and muscle pain.
Initially this was thought to be a result of the fact that the statins prevent the very fuel the stem cells require to function. But now, according to a group of scientists at Tulane University in New Orleans, these statins “de-activate” the stem cells that are required for cellular healing.
Now you might ask, what are stem cells? The body creates stem cells that are then moved to any area of the body that requires repair. A lot of research has been done on stem cells. Today we even have a formula that provokes the body to make new stem cells.
The problem here is that statins “de-activate” stem cells and thus prevent the required healing”.
What is even more interesting is that it has been shown  that eating a hard tart apple a day or walking a mile a day both will do just as good a job on your cholesterol, as a statin drug!
It is unfortunate, that so many have been blind sided by the myths and false claims that conventional medicine has staged.
