Jeffrey Jaxen has given me my reply to the sanctimonious comments I’ve often heard, “I only use evidence-based, peer reviewed studies to inform my health care decisions.”
Really? Read much?
I propose two strategies that will bring about a better, more timely outcome when wading through the reams of information in your decision-making process. You won’t have to wait 30 years and watch countless people suffer and die, or become a cautionary tale yourself, to better know your answer:
1. Go with overwhelming eyewitness reports, for example, the epidemic of autism. It works in a court of law. There are thousands of parent eye-witnesses. Ask them what they think. Too many parents are witnessing the destruction of their children, and too many of them have the same story, to chalk it all up to coincidence. They didn’t put their heads together in a secret meeting (think CDC) to cook up a nefarious, anti-vax conspiracy in order to bring down Western Civilization as we know it.
2. Learn how your body works. Anything that disrupts basic human biology is probably something to approach with caution. Risk benefit analysis needs to be done soberly.
As an example, in the case of statins (one of my favorite drugs to despise) they block the critical mevalonate pathway. They block nutrients the body makes to nourish — wait for it — THE HEART!! And so statins weaken the heart, sometimes irreversibly, with no known medication that can bring that weakened heart back to health. The condition statins are supposed to treat, blocked arteries, is reversible with proper nutrition, exercise, and targeted supplements.
The use of statins makes vibrant health impossible. No studies have shown they save lives or extend lives by more than maybe a day or two. Read Dr. Malcolm Kendrick’s book “Fat and Cholesterol Don’t Cause Heart Attacks and Statins are Not the Solution.” the works of Dr. Peter Langsjoen, and The Western A Price Foundation, for a full explanation of this problem. Statins come with a host of serious, potentially life threatening, vastly under-reported (DDB: doctor dismissive bias) side-effects, some irreversible, even ater discontinuing them.
Basically, your skeletal muscles melt, you turn into a pile of jello, and you risk kidney failure. It can start well after you stop taking statins, can happen very quickly and is life threatening. Kind of reminds me of the psychiatric drugs prescribed to treat depression which increase the risk of suicide. For a full treatment of why that happens, read Dr. Peter Gotzsche’s book, “Deadly Medicine and Organize Crime; How big pharma has corrupted healthcare.”
Crazy right? No. Standard operating procedure in the drug industry, which has twisted the results in statin studies for decades. Risk benefit analysis grade on statins: Fail. Risk benefit analysis on vaccines. Fail.
Who actually thinks these people, who regularly play with the peer-review process to increase their profits at our expense, are suddenly going to become angels when they are manufacturing vaccines, where they have ZERO liability? At least with statins, you can sue them. Although. That won’t give you your melted muscles back.
