Statin drugs block the manufacture of cholesterol. Did you know, cholesterol is the steroid fat, parent compound, used to make your sex hormone, testosterone?

The cholesterol lowering medication from the Statin family, are linked to prostate cancer in this research conducted in 2011 by the Taiwan National Health Insurance Database. They found that those medicated with statins (cholesterol lowering medication) had the following serious health outcomes:

  1. Patients prescribed a statin had a higher risk of getting prostate cancer, compared to those with NO cholesterol lowering medication
  2. Patients who were prescribed more doses of statins, had a bigger risk of getting prostate cancer

Statin Side Effects Men – CASE STUDY

Why didn’t my friends doctor tell him the dangers of taking statin drugs?

Why didn’t his doctor tell him that the cholesterol lowering medicine could affect his sexual functions?

My motor mechanic friend was slim, and had lead a fast paced international life, testing and setting up race cars.

His doctor had put him on statins several years ago when he went for his annual check-up. Later, testosterone medication was added by his doctor because he had lost his libido.

My friend’s doctor did not link his low testosterone level with the cholesterol lowering medication.

Now his health problems and symptoms were:

  1. No energy
  2. Muscle pain and weakness
  3. Low mood levels (feeling depressed)
  4. Losing the spark for life
  5. Very dry skin

Why where chemically made sex hormones and cholesterol lowering therapy drugs, standard medical treatment advice for my friend?

My friend trusted his doctors’ advice above all else…

I found out months later – he just stopped his statin and testosterone medication without talking with his doctor.

Why did the list of 5 serious health problems gradually disappear when my friend stopped taking cholesterol lowering drugs?

Were these all side-effects of taking cholesterol lowering drugs?

Statin Side Effects Men & Women is Parkinson’s disease?

Neurological side-effects of statin drugs include Parkinson’s disease.

60% of your brain consists of cholesterol and fats. Quality fats and cholesterol is vital for your brains normal functions including learning and memory say the US National Library of Medicine in 2009, and The Harvard Medical School in 2007.

In 2007 The Guardian, a United Kingdom (UK) newspaper raised concerns about Statins side-effects and its safety saying:

“About 2.3 million adults in the UK take statins to help control their cholesterol levels; the American scientists have found that those with lower levels of cholesterol are more likely to develop the degenerative neurological disorder of Parkinson’s disease.”

Statin Side Effects Men & Women is Parkinson’s disease- An Insurance Industry Case Study

In 2017 the insurance claim industry looked at the following list of facts:

  1. A data base of 50 million people
  2. They were able of identified about 22,000 Parkinson’s patients
  3. 2,320 were newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s
  4. They then analyzed whether these patients had used a statin
  5. Then analyzes how long they had been taking the statin
  6. Then compared it to data from healthy individuals 

Here’s the Findings Result:

  1. Statin use was linked to a HIGHER RISK of Parkinson’s disease
  2. High cholesterol levels LOWERED THE RISK of developing Parkinson’s
  3. Previous studies had found high cholesterol levels lowered the risk of developing Parkinson’s

Therefore, the neurological side-effects of the statin families (cholesterol lowering drugs) are linked to the development of Parkinson disease in your brain as you get older say The North West Parkinson’s Foundation.

Unexpected Cancer Death Higher in Large Simvastin (Statin) Study

A large medical study of 47,000 Japanese found death from “malignancy (cancer) was the most prevalent cause of death” when they were administered a low dose of Simvastin. Simvastin is a member of the Statin families of cholesterol lowering medicines (drugs).

Facts for this large Simvastin study are:

  1. The protective-effect of cholesterol lowering therapy had not been established in Japan
  2. The lipid-lowering (fat lowering) therapy of using cholesterol lowering drugs had not been established in Japan
  3. This was a 6-year nationwide study of 47,294 patients
  4. The patients were treated with 5 – 10 mg of Simvastin per day
  5. The trial was monitored by doctors under standard clinical conditions
  6. The aim of the study was to find out if the 5 – 10 mg per day dose of Simvastin had any effect on patients having a heart attract
  7. Death from cancer was the main cause of death

DEATH from cancer (malignancy) was the MAIN SIDE-EFFECT of STATIN therapy (cholesterol lowering medication) in this Japanese experiment and investigation.

“Statins Don’t Cut Heart Death Risk Says Leading Heart Professor.”

“People are taking this drug to prevent a problem and creating disasters” said President of The International Society for Vascular Surgery, Professor Sherif Sultan. Cholesterol lowering medicines have done nothing to cut the risk of heart deaths said this headline in this UK (United Kingdom) newspaper, the Sunday Express, on April 24th 2017.

Statin Side-Effects Vascular Surgeon Professor Sultan Says Includes:

  1. Depression & Muscle pain
  2. Impotency & Breast cancer
  3. Diabetes & Cataracts

Vascular Surgeon Dr Haroun Gajraj found research that said: cholesterol levels were irrelevant and that statins were NOT going to prevent him having a heart attack. After taking 20 mg atorvastatin pill for 8 years he stopped.

4 Lifestyle Changes the Vascular Surgeon Made to His Diet:

  1. Quit sugar
  2. Quit alcohol
  3. Quit starchy foods
  4. And added more animal fat into his diet

5 Benefits Dr Haroun Gajraj Health Received:

  1. Blood pressure went down
  2. Lost belly fat & became slimmer
  3. Fasting glucose became optimal
  4. Glycated haemoglobin (A1c) – where sugar damages red blood cells went down
  5. C-reactive protein (inflammatory marker) went down

  1. I really like you post. I think its super important information for that everyone should read. Sometimes, it seems like people don’t want to talk about difficult topics. Your post has a ton of information that I had never heard of before. I walked away knowing much more than when I started. Great job!

    1. Hi Coralie, Thank your for finding this post interesting and information.
      You are so right about people not wanting to talk about Cholesterol lowering drugs (statin) side effects.
