Unintentionally, this move may have done more to educate people on the dangers of statin drugs than anything previously published in the alternative media, which has been warning people against the dangers of statin drugs for many years now. Popular doctors in the UK who go against the mainstream medical system in the UK have found willing publishers in the mainstream media in recent days, to publish the other side of the “statin wonder drug” hype that now wants to put almost 25% of the UK population on medications with known and published side effects and little to no benefits.
Suddenly, statin drug whistle blowers in the U.K., such as Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, are getting op-ed pieces in mainstream media. Dr. Kendrick had an article published in the Guardian yesterday: Statins aren’t a wonder drug – The claims made for statins are overblown. They are not a cure for most of the major diseases afflicting western civilisation.
Even mainstream medical doctors are starting to speak out, such as Dr. Kailash Chand, deputy chairman of the British Medical Association. He recently spoke out against the NICE proposal, stating that he also had suffered “awful” muscle pains while taking statins, and that plans to prescribe them to millions more adults will “only benefit drug companies”. (See: Deputy Chairman of British Medical Association Condemns Statins).
Add to this chorus of voices now vascular surgeon Dr Haroun Gajraj, who wrote an op-ed piece in the Telegraph yesterday. The British population is certainly getting an education on the other side of the story regarding statin drugs, but don’t expect to read about this in the pro-Pharma U.S. mainstream media.
