Researchers find that cholesterol-lowering drug classes can lead to memory loss
The study, which was titled “Statin Therapy and Risk of Acute Memory Impairment”, looked at the health outcomes of almost 500,000 statin users and the same number of matched non-users of statins.
The study also analysed the health outcomes of users of non-statin lipid-lowering drugs (also known as LLDs), to make a fair comparison among all these groups as to the effects of statins, LLDs and no drug use at all on memory loss
Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and Rutgers University, both in America, found that memory loss rates were pretty equal among people taking statins and LLDs. However, they found that non-users of either drug had significantly better memories compared to those who took statins or LLDs.
This suggests that both cholesterol
-lowering drug classes may increase risk of memory loss.
“Both statin and non-statin LLDs were strongly associated with acute memory loss in the first 30 days following exposure in users compared with nonusers but not when compared with each other. Thus, either all LLDs cause acute memory loss regardless of drug class or the association is the result of detection bias rather than a causal association,” the paper reported.

Don’t fall prey to mainstream media – statins are to blame for memory loss!
Major media players like TIME, CBS News and Business Standard have published outrageous headlines such as “Statins don’t pose threat to your memory” and “Study: Statins not to blame for memory loss”. These misleading headlines have been circulating news circles in recent days, suggesting the direct opposite of what the study at hand found.
So why is the media trying to make you believe that statins are effective and safe? It’s simple – because media companies rely on advertising money from the very same companies that peddle statins and LLDs as beneficial to your health.
If media companies had to tell the truth and present an honest assessment of the use of statins and LLDs, stating that they do in fact destroy your brain, their major sponsors would probably threaten to put their fortunes elsewhere.
Consequently, people like you who peruse local and international media are left with the false idea that cholesterol-lowering drugs like statins cause no harm. It’s time to stop believing the media and looking at what science says...
Science shows that statins can also increase your risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, CoQ10 depletion and more!
The dangers of statins and other cholesterol-lowering drugs don’t stop at memory loss. In a study recently published in the journal Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology
, it was exposed that statins don’t even do their job.
Researchers found that statin drug manufacturers have refined the art of pseudoscientific deception, using what they call “statistical deception” to make people believe that statins are effective and safe. The industry also hides the serious health dangers posed by these quack drugs.
Is it just a bad memory? Or the early signs of Alzheimer's disease?
You know what it’s like to forget a name, misplace your keys, or lose your train of thought. It happens to everyone every so often.
But if you find yourself often repeating a question, forgetting your friends’ names or where you parked your car, it’s important you take five minutes to read this urgent alert NOW…
One of the health dangers posed is diabetes
. A study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine
found that diabetes is in fact a common adverse effect that statins trigger. The lead author of this study is quoted as saying that statin use is associated with “a significantly higher risk of new-onset diabetes, even in a very healthy population.”
Another danger is heart disease
. Two separate studies, one published in the journal Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology
, found that statins increase your risk of heart disease rather than reduce your risk. According to researchers, they do this by depleting your body’s levels of coenzyme Q10, an antioxidant that you need in order to perform cellular functions like produce energy.
“The adverse effects suffered by people taking statins are more common than reported in the media and at medical conferences,” reported Dr David M Diamond and his colleague, Dr Uffe Ravnskov, both scientists at the University of Florida in the US. Their study, which looked at the effects of statins on general health, was published in the journal Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology
“Increased rates of cancer
, cataracts, diabetes, cognitive impairments and musculoskeletal disorders more than offset the modest cardiovascular benefits of statin treatment,” they added.
So before you pop another statin thinking it won’t do any harm to your health, think again. It’s a wise idea to speak to your doctor about natural alternatives to statins for the sake of your brain, heart and other vital organs!
