January 27th, 2015
They may be you doctor’s first choice when it comes to keeping your heart healthy. But these deadly drugs could be raising your thyroid cancer risk 43%.

Statins don’t work. But it’s not just that they’re ineffective. We’ve told you before they come with over 600 adverse effects. These range form calcifying your arteries to deteriorating muscle tissue. Now a new study reveals what could be the deadliest side effect yet…

They could be raising your risk of developing thyroid cancer.

Researchers at the Taipei Medical University Hospital in Taiwan wanted to determine if regular statin use affected thyroid cancer risk. That’s because several earlier studies suggested these drugs might—somehow—lower the risk of certain cancers… These include colorectal, breast, and prostate cancers.

Over the course of three years, they found men’s thyroid cancer risk raised 28% with regular statin use. But women’s risk was significantly higher. Theirs came in at 43%.

Even more disturbing is that statin use didn’t have to be regular for risk to increase… Some people used these drugs intermittently. Others took them for less than two consecutive months. But that didn’t matter much. Just using statins at all raised their odds of developing thyroid cancer by 35%.

It doesn’t surprise us.

This Future Superfood Fights Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest. But this little berry packs antioxidant power that may put chemo to shame—and help prevent cancer from forming.

Doctors won’t ask how you or a loved one wants to treat cancer. They’ll only ask how you want to pay for treatment. There’s no choice. Just look at what happened to Cassandra C. in Connecticut…

At 17 years old, the Supreme Court declared her not mature enough to decide whether or not she can refuse chemotherapy for her cancer. She doesn’t have a death wish. She wants a natural solution instead.1 Yet to experts, no such thing exists.

But that’s a lie.
