  • Depression & Muscle pain
  • Impotency & Breast cancer
  • Diabetes & Cataracts
  • Renal failure & Liver failure
  • Nerve damage

“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.

“Statins Don’t Cut Heart Death Risk Says Leading Heart Professor.” “I’ve Ditched Cholesterol Lowering (Statin) for Good,” said Vascular Surgeon Dr. Haroun Gajraj when interviewed by the newspaper the UK Telegraph.

Vascular Surgeon Dr. Haroun Gajraj found research that said: cholesterol levels were irrelevant (not important) and that statins were NOT going to prevent him having a heart attack. After taking 20 mg atorvastatin pill for 8 years he stopped. The 4 lifestyle changes he made to his diet were:

  • Quit sugar
  • Quit alcohol
  • Quit starchy foods
  • And added more animal fat into his diet

The 5 Benefits Dr. Haroun Gajraj Health Received were:

  1. Blood pressure went down
  2. Lost belly fat & became slimmer
  3. Fasting glucose became optimal
  4. Glycated hemoglobin (A1C) – where sugar damages red blood cells went down
  5. C-reactive protein (is an inflammatory marker) went down

Statin Side Effects Men List:

1. First Statin Side Effects Men is Low Testosterone – Statins could decrease your testosterone levels when it blocks and reduces the availability of cholesterol for making your sex hormones says the US National Library of Medicine.

2. Second Statin Side Effects Men is Prostate Cancer – An Insurance database found men on Statins had an increased risk of Prostate Cancer the US National Library of Medicine reported in 2011. 

The cholesterol-lowering medication from the Statin family, is 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:

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

Patients studied were aged 50 years or more. They had prostate cancer for the first time. The timeframe was between the years 2005 and 2008.

3. Third Statin Side Effects Men is Testis Shrinkage – Has your age been blamed as the reason you’ve noticed your testis, have decreased in size? This 2010 research by the Us National Library of Medicine found the use of statin drugs to lower cholesterol was linked to:

  • Testis volume getting smaller
  • Causing hidden low testosterone signs and symptoms

The average age of the men in this study was 51.6 years, some were younger than 40 years.

 4. Forth Statin Side Effects Men is Erectile Dysfunction – Cholesterol-lowering medicine is linked to erectile dysfunction says the US National Library of Medicine.

One of the side-effects of low levels of your sex hormone, testosterone, is the inability to be able to get an erection. Therefore, statin drugs could decrease your testosterone levels when they block your body making cholesterol. Cholesterol is the steroid fat your body uses to make your sex hormones.

WARNING – Your doctor may say it is related to your age and NOT medicines…

 5. Fifth Statin Side Effects Men & Women is Parkinson’s disease: What Insurance Industry Research of Their Data Base Found – In 2017 the insurance claim industry looked at the following list of facts:

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

The North West Parkinson’s Foundation found that as your brain gets older, high cholesterol levels guarded it against getting Parkinson’s disease. They found that the use of the Statin cholesterol-lowering drug, was linked to a higher risk of Parkinson’s disease.

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.”

6. Sixth Statin Side Effects Men & Women May Be Dementia – 60% of your brain consists of cholesterol and fats. Quality fats and cholesterol are 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.

7. Seventh Statin Side Effects Men & Women May Be Cancer in the Elderly & Vulnerable Leading to Their Death – A large medical study of 47,000 Japanese found death from “malignancy (cancer) was the main reason people died,  when they were administered a low dose of Simvastatin. Simvastatin is a member of the Statin families of cholesterol-lowering medicines (drugs). The following research was reported in the US National Library of Medicine in 2002.

Facts for this large Simvastatin study were:

  1. This was a 6-year nationwide study of 47,294 patients
  2. The patients were treated with 5 – 10 mg of Simvastatin per day
  3. The trial was monitored by doctors under standard clinical conditions
  4. The aim of the study was to find out if the 5 – 10 mg per day dose of Simvastatin had any effect on patients having a heart attract
  5. Death from cancer was the main reason these people died

How Does The Cholesterol-Lowering Medication, Statin, Work?

Statin drugs block the manufacture of cholesterol. Cholesterol is the vital ingredient of the 5 steroid fats, and the parent ingredient of your sex hormone, testosterone. So that you can rethink the function of cholesterol in your body, READ my posts on: “What is Cholesterol New Research” and “9 Ways Cholesterol is Needed by Your Body.”

This means you can’t have an erection, make love, have sex or children without cholesterol.

LOOK at the bottom left box where Steroid Hormones and Vitamin D are listed at the top. Cholesterol is listed to the right of this box. The name STATINS enclosed in the spiky shape, show the part of your metabolism in the liver, where they BLOCK cholesterol. This image of where cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins) block cholesterol is by Reseachgate.net and is one of the simpler visual explanations I’ve found.

Statin Alternative

British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra has found that “Saturated fat does not clog the arteries: coronary heart disease is a chronic inflammatory condition, the risk of which can be effectively reduced from healthy lifestyle interventions,”

READ my post on “What is inflammation in the body?” to help you understand or rethink why this unseen natural function is happening inside your body. Then also READWhat is the Cause Heart Disease 12 Links” to help get you to rethink the  real truth about the causes of heart Disease.

    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!

      You are so right about people not wanting to talk about Cholesterol lowering drugs (statin) side effects.
      Hopefully by being ‘evidence’ based I’m helping people.

    Thank you for your research. I have known that statins were causing health problems. This article has helped to clarify the ‘why’.

    I am sure the big pharmaceutical are influencing researchers and doctors to hide the truth about statins.

      Hello Aaron,
      I’m pleased to have clarified for you, how statins harm male health.
      Many years ago I found out our health care system hides the truth. This is why cholesterol detectives exists.

    Excellent though very scary post. It is crazy how little we know about our bodies and how the medical industry has been selling potentially harmful drugs based on scant research.
    Thanks for the super useful article. On a lighter note, I do admire the doctor quitting alcohol and sugar but it might just not be my thing. I’ll look to moderate my intake of these poisons though

      Hey Joshi,
      You are so welcome to this information.
      The Vascular Surgeon who quit alcohol and sugar did so to reverse his Type 2 diabetes. That is the level of diet change needed to completely reverse a deadly disease, which many health professionals say can’t be done.
      For those of us who are not on any medication, I agree with you a moderate intake works.

    I love your post and profile. As a personal trainer I work with people on Statins. Your research and educational style is very good. Helping people train around some of these statin side effects can be difficult for the symptoms you described above, but it can be done.

    This post is very informative. Everyone should know the side effect of statin in men’s health.
    I found it surprising that the US National Library of Medicine, has as many references to statin side effects, as it does.
    Why is this information kept hidden?
