The old year is almost finished and a New Year is about to begin, so time to add to this blog.
We have had a little time to relax in the lead up to 2019, and time for reading and researching the latest developments in health, or should that be ill-health?
The statin drug debate continues but the conclusions are becoming more clear-cut in spite of resistance to new knowledge by those who really need to adjust their attitude to the issue.
We have come across this most interesting video from the Australian Broadcast Commission (ABC) which is several years old but summerises the issue very clearly.
Then we found the second video highlighting the the outcome of this program for the presenter where she tells about the response from opponents to the truth; very scary!
We urge you to watch and perhaps it will help you personally if you or your family members are in any way affected. But please don't expect to be able to have any impact in your clinical practice for the current guidelines are hopelessly behind the times and unlikely to change any time soon in the face of such opposition. Keep safe!

The resulting response is explained by Dr. Maryanne Demasi in her address - 'Statin Wars: Have we been misled by the evidence?' - https://youtu.be/BzTjPuikhQE
If these two videos wet your appetite, take a look at the video on the work of Dr Robert Lustig, an dietary expert and endocrinologist who works in a clinic for obese children as he explains what the real cause of health problems is (and it is NOT saturated fats, or gluttony as we are frequently being told).
