Are Statins the Key to Preventing Alzheimer's Disease?

Dangerous statin drugs may be repurposed to fight Alzheimer’s disease. According to CNN, the over-prescription of this class of drug is actually having a positive benefit because it is reduces the risk of cognitive decline.

The side effects of statins are underreported and severe. Their modest benefits hardly outweigh the risks they can pose to your health. If you do decide to take a statin drug, you need to make sure you take CoQ10 or Ubiquinol (the reduced form) with it.

Alzheimer’s treatment will open up a rich revenue stream for statin manufacturers. An estimated 5.4 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, and an estimated 600,000 more may suffer from an often misdiagnosed subtype called "hippocampal sparing".

Currently, the widespread use of statins illustrates the pernicious hold that “bad cholesterol” has on our imagination. Cholesterol is essential for your brain, helps produce cell membranes, and plays a role in the production of hormones (including the sex hormones testosterone, progesterone and estrogen) and bile acids that help you digest fat. Yet millions have been brainwashed to view cholesterol as a looming and minatory specter that must be suppressed at all costs but preferably with a prescription drug.

There are alternatives to intrusive and toxic pharmaceuticals. Fat avoidance and carbohydrate overconsumption are at the heart of the Alzheimer’s epidemic and the high cholesterol scare. For this reason, you should jettison all processed foods from your diet. The convenience and perceived value they provide is entirely illusory. Instead, consume exclusively nourishing whole foods and plenty of healthy fats. Taking control of your health is a transformational journey that starts with a healthy diet.
