BETA BLOCKER DANGERS

WORD TO THE WISE

Beta Blockers Raise Stroke, Death Risk After Surgery

“Patients who received the blood pressure-lowering drugs known as beta blockers after having non-cardiac surgery were at higher risk of dying or having a stroke, a new Canadian study found.
“However, the patients receiving the medications were less likely to have a heart attack, according to the report in the May 13 online issue of The Lancet.”


What does it all mean? Well, it reads like a trade off. At best, many drugs are targeted toward symptom suppression on a very specific level. But, there is a price at it is called “side effects”. You must determine if the overall effect is necessary and positive. Do not expect your doctor to know everything. He is only as good as his handlers, the pharmaceutical reps and the medical journals, mostly controlled by the big pharma companies. Think for yourself. Do the homework. Ask questions and do not settle for evasive answers.
More and more, it is becoming public knowledge that we are just part of a some experiment that considers human beings the same as labs rats. Whether it is Vioxx or one of the other numerous drugs that have been eventually banned etc., more people are killed from bad medicine than by guns and cars! See
Death By Medicine. Wake up! Never trust blindly that your health and welfare is important to the medical industry. They do not make money by keeping you healthy or making you well. They make filthy profits by keeping you sick for as long as your bank account and your health insurance last. Then, it is Sayonara sucker!

Not convinced? Good. Check this out. We just want you to start thinking about it, before it is too late.

Do Cholesterol Drugs Do Any Good?

……..“Yes, Wright saw, the drugs can be life-saving in patients who already have suffered heart attacks, somewhat reducing the chances of a recurrence that could lead to an early death. But Wright had a surprise when he looked at the data for the majority of patients, like Winn, who don't have heart disease. He found no benefit in people over the age of 65, no matter how much their cholesterol declines, and no benefit in women of any age. He did see a small reduction in the number of heart attacks for middle-aged men taking statins in clinical trials. But even for these men, there was no overall reduction in total deaths or illnesses requiring hospitalization—despite big reductions in "bad" cholesterol. "Most people are taking something with no chance of benefit and a risk of harm," says Wright. Based on the evidence, and the fact that Winn didn't actually have angina, Wright changed his mind about treating him with statins—and Winn, too, was persuaded. "Because there's no apparent benefit," he says, "I don't take them anymore." ”
