Statins, the widely prescribed class of drugs said to lower “bad” cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart problems, has recently come under fire after a study revealed that they destroy human health more than they work to improve it.

Sadly, many people take statin drugs, which are commonly known by brand names including Lipitor, Crestor and Zocor. Prescription drug spending in the U.S. shot up to about $374 billion in 2014, representing the highest level of spending since 2001. Statins undoubtedly made up a significant portion of this spending, and now consumers who take such drugs have much more to worry about than the dent it's making in their wallets.

The study, which was published in the American Journal of Physiology, states that statins' “…impact on other biologic properties of stem cells provides a novel explanation for their adverse clinical effects.” Specifically, the study states that such adverse effects include advancing the “process of aging” and also notes that “…long-term use of statins has been associated with adverse effects including myopathy, neurological side effects and an increased risk of diabetes.” Myopathy refers to skeletal muscle weakness.

Statins make cells unable to repair properly, create nerve problems and destroy memory


Experts involved in the study suggest that the health problems associated with statins have likely been downplayed through the years. In reality, those taking such cholesterol-lowering drugs have been experiencing cataracts, fatigue, liver problems, muscle pain and memory loss. Simply put, the drugs have been found to tamper with cells in such a way that their primary purpose of reproducing and helping the body repair is thwarted. With that comes the onset of terrible health issues or the worsening of existing ones.

Professor Reza Izadpanah, a stem cell biologist and lead author of the published study, says, “Our study shows statins may speed up the ageing process. People who use statins as a preventative medicine for [health] should think again as our research shows they may have general unwanted effects on the body which could include muscle pain, nerve problems and joint problems.”

Despite health problems linked to statin drugs, FDA says people shouldn't be scared of them


While the FDA notes on its web site that “Cognitive (brain-related) impairment, such as memory loss, forgetfulness and confusion, has been reported by some statin users” and that “People being treated with statins may have an increased risk of raised blood sugar levels and the development of Type 2 diabetes,” they also maintain its safety and effectiveness. The site directs people's attention to the advice of Amy G. Egan, M.D., M.P.H., who is the deputy director for safety in the FDA's Division of Metabolism and Endocrinology Products (DMEP). She says, “This new information should not scare people off statins. Their benefit is indisputable, but they need to be taken with care and knowledge of their side effects.”

Robert De Niro, Robert Kennedy Launch Campaign Against Big Pharma

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Robert De Niro held a joint press conference at the National Press Club on Wednesday to launch a campaign with the World Mercury Project against big pharma and the use of mercury in vaccines.

The focus of their effort is to “find a missing piece of research associated with mercury,” by offering a $100,000 reward for “any journalist or anybody else, who can point to a single existing study that says that it is safe to inject mercury into little babies or pregnant women at the levels that we are currently injecting them with the flu vaccine,” Kennedy announced.

“De Niro supports the mission of the World Mercury Project (WMP), a nonprofit public advocacy organization in which Kennedy serves as Chairman,” a press release from the WMP stated. “The WMP envisions a world where mercury is no longer a threat to the health of our planet and people.”

The group has long argued that mercury in vaccines causes autism — a theory that has been debunked in Studies conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, the American Academy of Pediatrics and others. De Niro has a child with autism and rejects the scientific studies.

In January, Kennedy began pushing for President Donald Trump to let him lead a commission on vaccines.

Last year, De Niro attempted to screen “Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe,” at the Tribeca Film Festival, but it was pulled from the lineup.

During the news conference, the group explained that they are pro-vaccine, but anti-mercury.
