Statins being called the "Hoy Grail for Cancer" and other non-cardiac drugs

Really great article, take a look.


In conclusion, statins are being looked at as the Holy Grail for multiple non-cardiac indications including cancer. The results of this large nationwide observational study are encouraging and show that statin use is associated with reduced cancer mortality across different subgroups and cancer sites.


How exciting is that????????

Great, tell me where their theory is wrong. Tell me what is know that shows this to be like a bad real estate transaction.

Again, this seems to be related to the ability of statins to promote certain cell regeneration, really intersting.

I do have something. Functioning brain cells left. Statins promote cell degeneration.

Here you go, maybe we can get you a few more;


Statins improve recovery from traumatic brain injury and show promise in preventing Alzheimer disease. However, the mechanisms by which statins may be therapeutic for neurological conditions are not fully understood. In this study, we present the initial evidence that oral administration of simvastatin in mice enhances Wnt signaling in vivo. Concomitantly, simvastatin enhances neurogenesis in cultured adult neural progenitor cells as well as in the dentate gyrus of adult mice. Finally, we find that statins enhance Wnt signaling through regulation of isoprenoid synthesis and not through cholesterol. These findings provide direct evidence that Wnt signaling is enhanced in vivo by simvastatin and that this elevation of Wnt signaling is required for the neurogenic effects of simvastatin. Collectively, these data add to the growing body of evidence that statins may have therapeutic value for treating certain neurological disorders.

The research on this topic is literally going through te roof.

Iride, you are never going to convince me that inhibiting normal healthy metabolic processes enhances cell performance.

Nature put these processes in place because they are needed to maintain healthy cell function. Statins interrupt this function.

Using statins to choke off this pathway which is critical to cell function and life itself, will never promote cell regeneration, prevent cancer, or any other of the wild claims made.

Statins can however induce severe muscle pain and weakness, cognitive decline, and joint pain as this important lifeline is choked off.

Wow, let's try that again. I'm not trying to convince anyone of anything, just presenting the facts.

Its what you perceive as facts. In sales, perception is everything.

I will say it again: In sales, perception is everything.
