Industry Reversal: “CRP is Unlikely to be Causal for CVD.”
Let me share with you one of several “reversals of common nutritional recommendations” that took place at the end of last year, beginning of this year. Personally, I get sick of seeing these reversals year-after-year. Does anyone get it right the first time before they publish misinformation and harm everyone who trusts the sources and follows it? Rarely.
This “reversal” has to do with the JUPITER (google this for more background information) study and their claim that it NOW isn’t LDL-cholesterol that is the cause of heart disease; because statins lower it and the heart attacks still occur just as frequently. They are attempting to claim that C-Reactive Protein (CRP) – a supposed measure of inflammation is the real culprit and that statins somehow improve it. If you read my Report about the Failure of Statins (www.brianpeskin.com), you’d understand their grave fallacy. Furthermore, here’s what was published in the medical journal December 22, 2009:
“Largest-Ever-Meta-Analysis Finds CRP is Unlikely to be Causal for CVD.”
“In the largest and most comprehensive meta-analysis to date looking at C-reactive-protein (CRP) levels and risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke, British researchers conclude that CRP is unlikely to be a causal factor for cardiovascular disease” [Lancet: December 21, 2009].
So the drug companies tell us that their statins are STILL GOOD at reducing heart disease (in order to keep selling their harmful bullets) while science disproves it! Hmmm….
Once gain, the FAILURE of statins to stop or reverse heart disease is proven regardless of the $15 billion dollars Americans spend on the worthless drugs! That’s the truth that the pharmaceutical companies do not want you or your physician to know. The correct way to stop or reverse heart disease is by consuming unprocessed, unadulterated parent omega-6 oils.
