One More "Scientific" Use For Worthless Statins

I bet the mega-drug companies, specifically Pfizer and Merck, probably jumped for joy after reading about the latest, greatest and newest use for statin drugs: Reducing smoking-related lung damage.

Researchers compared the lung functioning among some 500 patients, (more than a third were smokers while the rest had quit before the study) based on whether they took Zocor , Lipitor or no statin drug at all.

Patients taking a statin drug slowed the decline in their lungs fivefold compared to those who didn't. And, the number of hospitalizations and emergency room visits among patients with lung disease who took a statin drug also declined by more than a third.

It would be far more sensible, much safer and better for your overall health to stop smoking altogether with the help of an effective energy psychology tool like the Emotional Freedom Technique than to take a statin drug that can harm you.
