The makers of one class of drugs annoy me to no end as they brag endlessly that their cholesterol lowering substances are clinically proven to reduce death rates. Believe it or not, they are pushing to have doctors prescribe their wares for people with “normal” cholesterol under the guise of “saving lives.” It appears their plan is to simply have everyone on drugs.
Give me a break! How can anything that creates a “lower cholesterol reading” by precipitating the cholesterol onto the vessel walls make sense in any way? Carey Reams patiently explained to thousands of people that simply drinking enough water to keep the urine salts at a controlled level removed the stinging effect of the salts in the blood. When there is no salty burning on the vascular walls, there is no need for the body to produce extra cholesterol to protect them.
You, dear reader, are at risk of being brainwashed by powerful interests trying to find a way to sell you more drugs—voluntarily or involuntarily. However, you have a powerful ally to help you fight back. It’s called the Internet and it delivers information you simply could not have obtained a dozen years ago.
The Healthy Skeptic is one of those Internet columns that preaches good sense as it points out, over and over, that the drug-emperor has no clothes on. You may find that signing up for their monthly column is well worth while. Here are two columns that patiently put the lie to the drug baloney. As you read, think about vessel inflammation and try to tie that in to Reams' teaching.
