Groundbreaking Research: Statins WEAKEN Heart Muscle


Groundbreaking research from the Journal of Clinical Cardiology published in Dec. 2009 demonstrated for the first time in a human clinical study that statin drugs actually weaken the heart muscle.

These results while disturbing are to be expected given the well-known toxicological problem associated with statin drug use, namely, the inhibition of the mevalonate pathway necessary to produce the heart essential nutrient coenzyme q10. Coenzyme Q10 deficiency may be a major contributing cause to heart disease, underscoring just how unsafe the statin drug category may be when marketing and manufacturer influenced research is separated from impartial analysis of theevidence that exists showing they cause severe bodily harm. There is also disturbing research that statin drugs also deplete the body of the cardioprotective minerals (and associated mineral-protein complexes) zinc and selenium.

It is the height of wicked irony that one of the major “unintended consequences” of cholesterol lowering drug therapy is damage to the muscles, particularly the heart muscle. This finding may also explain why rates of heart failure may be increasing in the general population given these drugs.

Why Eyes Don’t Age Like The Rest Of Our Body….


 

Have you ever marveled at the youthfulness of the eyes in someone who is close to a century old? While the protective caps (telomeres) on our chromosomes are longest in infancy and decrease as we advance in age, the heart, brain, eyes (retina), testes, and ovaries are uniquely resistant to telomere shortening and remain as long as an infants well into adulthood (in healthy adults).

Turmeric: 1,489 Peer-Reviewed Biomedical Studies Supporting Its Use as a Medicine


Its official!  We have just completed our two week long project of reviewing all 3,866 studies on Turmeric (and its major phenolic compound curcumin) on MEDLINE and we have published our results on the GreenMedInfo.com Turmeric page.  We believe that this page (which will take a minute to load, due to the voluminosity of data) is the worlds’ most extensive biomedical resource on the subject of this herb’s benefits and we encourage you to share it with others and link to it.

We have found no less than 1489 studies indexed across 152 pharmacological actions indicating its therapeutic value in the prevention or treatment of 564 Diseases.  All of these are now freely available on our database.

Below you will find a screenshot showing the top diseases (37 visible) that Turmeric compounds that the evidence demonstrates have therapeutic value in preventing or treating.*

We determine these disease rankings according to both the number and quality of studies that exist supporting its use.  We call this rating  “evidence density,” and it attributes greater value to human, animal, and test tube (in vitro) studies, in that descending order. (Click here to learn more about evidence density)

As you can see there are 168 studies indicating it has antioxidant activity, 29 on its potential value for Alzheimer disease, and 51 on its value for inflammation.


*Due to the FDA’s unconstitutional gag order against our first amendment right to speak truthfully about the science indicating the therapeutic value of natural substances in disease prevention and treatment, we have created an algorithm which generates a statement about a substance’s “evidence density” based on the quantity and quality of research on our database that exists to support it.  To learn more about evidence density go here.
