Just been reading about a drug called Repetha that is due for release soon, with no side effects (apparently).

    I don't believe any longer that we need to reduce the level of "bad" choloesterol in the first place.  Watch the video on you tube;  "Statin Nation".

    Fifteen minute segment or watch the 2 hr version. The need to lower cholesterol appears to be one huge myth/ hoax.

    Furthermore I wouldn't believe for one nano second that this new drug has no side effects.

      Just watched the 15 minute segment of Statin Nation and found it very informative.  I think I'm still slightly brainwashed by my doctor but like you I don't believe that Repatha has no side effects.  I was also 'taken in' by the advert showing fat in the arteries of smokers'. I have never smoked but I do feel smokers have had a raw deal.  It's made me feel better about refusing to take any prescribed statins.

      I identify with your use of the term brainwashed. Because I have bekieved for 40 years that I was indanger of clogging up my arteries because of bad cholesterol. It has taken me 6 months of reading and researching to get my brain to switch around to believing that it is not cholesterol that causes heart disease, and even still if I eat a piece of cheese, add milk to my coffee or eat a few eggs I have to tell myself that it is okay and that I am not being bad to my body. This chloesterol as the villian is not easily leaving my belief system.

         And the doctors as well are brainwashed. I emailed my cardiologist various articles including "statin nation" and he totally just blew it off.

      "You can't belief what you read on the internet" was his response. 

      Some of these studies that I have read are from renown resarchers and institutions, not Joe Blow. And trust me he uses the internet daily to get information. Who doesn't nowadays?

      Wow, Miss prescription of just one drug had killed more people than in the Vietnam war, and all they can say is sorry, it was the drugs fault, they can only prescribe what is recommended to them.
