Do statins cause muscle aches?

statins statin tablets drugs
An independent analysis.

Cholesterol-lowering medications called statins are widely prescribed, however, about 50% of patients dump their statins within a year of commencing therapy.

The most common complaint is muscle problems - pain, weakness, cramps, and aches.

But now, a major study published in The Lancet has concluded that statins are rarely to blame.

Comment: Today's medical studies are all just fudging numbers to get the results the authors want. They'll do whatever manipulations they need to downplay negative effects and create 'benefits' where none actually exist. Very few can be trusted (doubly so for those that get a lot of mainstream press attention).

The poorly-understood role of copper in anemia

Morley Robbins, MBA, CHC,1 a repeat guest, is the founder of the Magnesium Advocacy Group. He's best known as the Magnesium Man, and is the author of "Cu-RE Your Fatigue: The Root Cause and How to Fix It on Your Own," in which he explains the roles of magnesium, copper, iron, vitamins A and D and other essential nutrients.

His Root Cause Protocol2 is the implementation of that information. We're currently planning to write a book together, which will focus on the little-understood importance of copper and its interaction with iron.

As explained by Robbins, if copper is lacking in your diet, iron will build up in your liver, which changes its physiology and immunoproperties. Liver metabolism is highly dependent on copper and retinol, and there's not a lot of awareness of that.


Covid vaccine destroys natural immunity, NEJM study shows

child vaccination
A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) shows not only that the effectiveness of the Pfizer Covid vaccine becomes negative (meaning the vaccinated are more likely to be infected than the unvaccinated) within five months but that the vaccine destroys any protection a person has from natural immunity.

The study is a large observational study that looks at 887,193 children aged 5 to 11 years in North Carolina, of whom 273,157 (30.8%) received at least one dose of Pfizer vaccine between November 1st 2021 and June 3rd 2022. The study includes 193,346 SARS-CoV-2 infections reported between March 11th 2020 and June 3rd 2022.

The researchers used a form of statistical modelling with adjustments for confounding factors (such as underlying conditions) to calculate estimates of vaccine effectiveness over time and against the different Covid variants.


Vaccine narrative collapses as Harvard study shows jab more dangerous than COVID

As boosters that have not been tested on humans are being rolled out across the country, a new study indicates that the jab is far more dangerous than COVID-19 itself. And the CDC has provided false information regarding their tracking of adverse events linked to the vaccines.

As government officials and mainstream media urges the vaccinated to inject a second so-called "bivalent" booster said to be targeting the Omicron variant, it turns out that this substance hasn't been tested on humans. And the only animal trial that has been performed included eight mice.

"It hasn't been proven in a clinical trial, because we don't have time to do a clinical trial because we need to get the vaccine out now because we have such a situation throughout the world and certainly in the United States, we're having 400 deaths per day and up to 5,000 hospitalizations a day," NIAID Dr Anthony Fauci explained in an interview.

How weed became the new OxyContin

Big Pharma and Big Tobacco are helping market high-potency, psychosis-inducing THC products as your mother's 'medical marijuana.'

For 30 years, Dr. Libby Stuyt, a recently retired addiction psychiatrist in Pueblo, Colorado, treated patients with severe drug dependency. Typically, that meant alcohol, heroin, and methamphetamines. But about five years ago, she began to see something new.

"I started seeing people with the worst psychosis symptoms that I have ever seen," she told me. "And the worst delusions I have ever seen."

These cases were even more acute than what she'd seen from psychotic patients on meth. Some of the delusions were accompanied by "severe violence." But these patients were coming up positive only for cannabis.

Comment: The wide-scale decriminalization or legalization of marijuana was treated as a victory over oppressive and outdated laws. That may have been true of the original plant, but it's not true now. It seems likely that the push for legalization came from, or was at least helped along by, corporate entities that knew the potential for a new product with an addicted customer base. The new opioid epidemic, indeed.

First diagnostic test for long covid, detecting spike protein in blood, to launch in September. Or is it 'long vaccine'?

spike protein covid
The first diagnostic designed to identify patients with Long Covid has received CE-IVD marking in Europe, meaning it is ready for its formal launch in countries accepting the designation this month. It works by looking for "patterns of inflammatory marker expression" in the blood, and in particular for the Covid spike protein persisting in white blood cells. Business Wire has the story.
The simple blood test can help to objectively diagnose patients suffering from Post-Acute Sequelae of COVID-19 (PASC), commonly known as Long Covid. Developed by IncellDx, the test will be available to prescribers and patients in September through one of the world's largest providers of diagnostic services.

A CE Mark indicates that the incellKINE Long Covid In Vitro Diagnostic fulfills the requirements of relevant European product directives and meets all the requirements of the relevant recognised European harmonised performance and safety standards...

Peer-reviewed study: 94% of vaccinated patients with subsequent health issues have abnormal blood

Physicians in Italy studied the blood of patients who had been injected with mRNA COVID-19 vaccines and found foreign matter long after vaccination, a new study shows.

The three doctors, all of whom are surgeons — Franco Giovannini, M.D., Riccardo Benzi Cipelli, M.D., and Giampaolo Pisano, M.D. — examined freshly drawn blood of more than a thousand patients using direct observation under microscopes to see what was happening in the blood.

Their results were published in the International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice, and Research in August 2022.

Comment: Is this really a safety issue? Self-assembling nano-structures don't just show up in blood of vaccinated individuals by accident. It's hard to believe this was anything other than intentional.

US life expectancy takes an unprecedented fall: Are mRNA "vaccines" to blame?

Life expectancy
According to the latest statistics reported by The New York Times1 August 31, 2022, life expectancy in the United States dropped precipitously in 2020 and 2021.

In 2019, the average life span of Americans of all ethnicities was nearly 79 years. By the end of 2021, two years into the COVID pandemic and one full year into the mass inoculation campaign, life expectancy had dropped to 76 — a loss of nearly three years. Even small declines in life expectancy of a tenth or two-tenths of a year mean that on a population level, a lot more people are dying prematurely than they really should be. And this was nearly THREE years or 35 times more.

Comment: With more information coming out day by day, it is beginning to look like Mercola might be right: The experimental mRNA COVID jabs could be one of most lethal drugs in medical history.


Data leak reveals disturbing facts about mRNA vaccine instability and potential dangers

A 14-minute video (above) that has been overlooked for nearly two years has now resurfaced, exposing stunning information about the COVID-19 jabs and why health officials don't want individual vaccine vials examined by independent scientists.

The reason, it turns out, is because the vials are all different — and the mRNA in the shots "is not intact." Both of these pose potentially serious problems. In an August 31, 2022, Substack article, Steve Kirsch explains1:

Comment: Given that the Pfizer stands to make $54 BILLION from these mRNA-based vaccine and other COVID "treatments", they will continue doing everything in their power to convince the population of the need for booster shots... no matter how dangerous or ineffective.


'Unethical' and up to 98 times worse than the disease: Top scientists publish paradigm-shifting study about COVID-19 vaccines

A team of nine experts from Harvard, Johns Hopkins, and other top universities has published paradigm-shifting research about the efficacy and safety of the COVID-19 vaccines and why mandating vaccines for college students is unethical.

This 50-page study, which was published on The Social Science Research Network at the end of August, analyzed CDC and industry-sponsored data on vaccine adverse events, and concluded that mandates for COVID-19 boosters for young people may cause 18 to 98 actual serious adverse events for each COVID-19 infection-related hospitalization theoretically prevented.

The paper is co-authored by Dr. Stefan Baral, an epidemiology professor at Johns Hopkins University; surgeon Martin Adel Makary, M.D., a professor at Johns Hopkins known for his books exposing medical malfeasance, including "Unaccountable: What Hospitals Won't Tell You and How Transparency Can Revolutionize Heath Care"; and Dr. Vinayak Prasad, a hematologist-oncologist, who is a professor in the UCSF Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, as well as the author of over 350 academic and peer-reviewed articles.
