Statins are deadly.
Proven to cause diabetes. My father became diabetic, stopped the Statins for other reasons - mainly muscular pain associated with Statins, they attack the muscles, and remember, the heart is muscle - and his follow up diabetes check a few months later, found no trace of diabetes, and he hasn't had a trace in the annual checkups since. Confirmed by FDA now too.
Confirmed by FDA as greatly increasing the risk of contracting Parkinson's disease.
Confirmed in recent testing, that Statins interfere with and block our stem cells ability to heal the body, and therefore cause rapid aging.
Other confirmed issues with Statins too (attacking cholesterol means they attack the brain, which is probably why there are associated loss of memory issues - maybe triggering dementia too), and more problems they cause are in the pipeline for confirmation.
Statins need to be banned, and those pushing them to be prosecuted. I am waiting for the class action to join (I was on them way too long as well).
It has been known for a long time, that the Lipid study (1950's) was seriously flawed, and that cholesterol is NOT the problem (inflammation is, and the biggest cause of inflammation, is carbohydrates, which we are heavily encouraged to eat every which way you look ).
So bin the bun, the fries, and the onion rings, make sure the rest is cooked in animal fat (there are serious issues with most cooking
oils as well, and this IS known), and you have a healthy, high fat (the right fat - animal fat), low carb meal.
There's some very serious questions to be asked about what causes furring of the arteries too (most of the usual suspects are already ruled out).
I remember reading a study with autopsy findings of superfit 18 and 19 year old casualties during the Vietnam
war. Most already had furring of the arteries(!).
It took a long time to get to the bottom of it, and it turned out to be heat treated (pasteurised) milk. These young men
were getting through a LOT of milk, and had been all their lives.
It turned out that the heat treatment process was making the milk fat particles so small, they were passing straight through the stomach wall and into the bloodstream.
That study was in the Science Journal, about 18 years after the end of the Vietnam
War (it took them that long to get to the bottom of what was going on).
PPS I wouldn't have the coleslaw either. Uncooked cabbage (and other veg) is bad news for digestion. We are not built to handle it.
PS Tell them your promotional attempts are working, and that if I am passing, I will definitely call in for one of their burgers. A small one though, so they save the T shirt.
