How Statins CAUSE Heart Disease! 16

Summary:


Statins cause diabetes - Blog 14

Statins CAUSE calcification

Statins ACCELERATE infections (another upcoming blog). I promise you will enjoy this one because it is our own case study.

 

Statins CAUSE heart disease


Who says statins increase vessel calcification? None other than the presumed top cardiovascular clinic in the world - and their leader, Dr. Nissen, Chairman of the Robert and Suzanne Tomsich Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at Cleveland Clinic.



Notice the "doublespeak."


The increase in calcification revealed by the analysis may represent a means by which statin therapy stabilizes coronary plaque to reduce the risk of cardiovascular events.


Hmmm: But the data is evident from Blog 16 that statins INCREASE cardiovascular deaths - which is consistent with increased calcification.


More double-speak.


Findings of the analysis, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, include the following:


  • Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) who are treated with statins experience an increase in coronary calcification, an effect that is independent of plaque progression or regression.


Can you have it both ways? Again, the data says NO! Does the bolded statement make sense - an increase of calcification (which is the plaque) and not be related to the plaque? I'm confused. I know these statin proponents are VERY GOOD at rationalization. And they have to rationalize because they have been brainwashed into thinking these drugs work. Can we get Nissen to read these blogs?


There is a video on performing coronary artery calcification measurements. I cannot remember all the details. However, a Texas politician weighed in on the value of the test because his brother either died from or suffered a cardiovascular disease event. When asked to comment on Nissen's statements about calcification, his response was simple and direct. "Nissen is an idiot."


If anyone knows the documentary I am referring to, please write to me so I can provide the link.


Here are more statements from the Cleveland Clinic study.


  • Paradoxically, (more rationalizing) high-intensity statin therapy is associated with the largest increases in coronary calcification despite promoting atheroma regression.

  • “Patients prescribed the highest doses of statins, despite achieving low levels of cholesterol and demonstrating marked plaque regression, had changes in plaque calcification that were nearly double the changes in patients who received no statins and

  • greater than changes in those who received low-intensity statin therapy, both of which were associated with plaque progression,” says the study’s principal investigator, Rishi Puri, MBBS, PhD.


Would you like to give your loved one (or yourself) more calcification for Christmas?



Translation of "is not what it seems."


Doctor: But I only have statins in my toolbox to treat patients, so PLEASE do not take this way from me!

 

MORE RESEARCH AND MORE RATIONALIZATIONS:


Conclusions: Independent of their plaque-regressive effects, statins promote coronary atheroma calcification. These findings provide insight into how statins may stabilize plaque beyond their impact on plaque regression.

Just like during the plandemic, all the pundits are reading from the EXACT same script.

 

Here is Dr. David Brownstein's analysis on this same topic.



 

Censorship at its best long before COVID.


You will be hard-pressed to find any article on calcification and statins that Nissen and the Cleveland Clinic do NOT publish.


Why? Is this NOT an important global health issue?

 

Here are a few examples:


Why the small sample size and short follow-up in studies of the #1 killer?


A RAY OF HOPE? - NOT SO FAST.



Conclusions:

  1. Long-term use of statins is associated with an increased likelihood of severe CACS in patients with significant smoking history.

  2. Using CACS to interpret cardiovascular event risk may require adjustment in the context of chronic statin therapy.


What do they mean by this last statement? If you are on statins and your calcium score is high - ignore it because that is what Cleveland Clinic wants you to do.


COWARDS!
