I've beat the drum for natural cholesterol treatments for years. At the same time, I've showed you all the problems with the synthetic drugs on the market. I've showed you how statins can cause heart failure, memory problems, and even cancer. But the latest information says another cholesterol drug could do all of that, and much worse!

A new study shows that the drug Zetia will, in fact, lower your cholesterol temporarily. But it does nothing to protect you from heart disease. In fact, it does just the opposite. The drug actually contributes to plaque build-up, increasing your risk for a heart attack. Even the company had to admit the drug was seriously flawed. But it took them long enough to do it.

Merck and Schering repeatedly missed deadlines for reporting the results. Cardiologists around the world were waiting for these results. Congress had to pressure the companies to disclose the findings. Steven Nissen, chairman of cardiology at the Cleveland Clinic said the results were "shocking." Millions of patients have continued to take a drug that raised their risk of heart attack and exposed them to other side effects, he said.

In other words, you can take these drugs to lower your cholesterol, but raise your vascular risk. It's just not worth it, especially when you realize that it's not your total cholesterol that strikes you dead. It's how your body handles the cholesterol that determines its effect on your health. And you can determine this simply by looking at your HDL. The higher your HDL, the better your body handles cholesterol.

There's simply no reason to take cholesterol drugs. They're nothing more than Band-Aid medicine. It's like painting over the rust on your car. These drugs might make your numbers look good, but your underlying health is in trouble.

If your doctor has scared you into using any of these drugs, please look at my website to see a host of alternatives to Big Pharma's plundering potions. These include red yeast rice, policosanol, niacin, and many others. All of these will help your body handle cholesterol more effectively - and keep you healthy at the same time.
