  1. [EXPOSED] The shocking TRUTH about America’s most popular heart drug

    They made a promise… and they LIED about it.

    What a shocker! 

    Statins were supposed to “change everything” by CUTTING cholesterol… and therefore BEATING BACK heart disease.

    Well, here we are… all these years later… and someone’s finally crunched all the numbers.

    New research reveals the truth about the drugs given to tens of millions of Americans for more than 30 years now.

    And let’s just say that anyone who’s been popping these drugs these past two, three, four decades is about to get REALLY ticked off.

    The ugly reality of cholesterol meds

    I doubt they were hoping this new study would end up DEBUNKING statins.

    They’re certainly not billing it that way, either.

    But tucked away in the data is something the drug industry bosses no doubt hope you’ll NEVER see.

    They’ve quietly calculated a number that reveals just how many people you have to drug… for how longbefore you see ANY kind of benefit.

    And let’s just say you won’t hear them mention this number in a commercial anytime soon – not even in that part at the end, where the guy talks super-fast and lists all those horrible side effects.

    In fact, the only place you’ll find it… without digging through the details of this study yourself… is RIGHT HERE.

    The bottom-line number, based on an analysis of many, many, MANY studies over the years, is what’s called an NNT10 of 21.

    Allow me to translate: NNT is the number needed to treat. The 10 means over the course of 10 years. And the 21 is the number of patients.

    In other words, you have to give high-dose statins to 21 people… for an entire decade… to prevent one single case of arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

    And for moderate-dose statins, the NNT10 is 32.

    You’d have to drug 32 people for a decade to prevent a single case of the disease.

    I bet they massaged the data to come up with as optimistic scenario as possible… and yet this is STILL a terrible number.

    Don’t get me wrong here. If you could prevent just ONE case of this disease… for ZERO side effects… and ZERO toxicities… this would be a medical marvel.

    And it’d be worth every bit of the hype.

    But that’s not the case here.

    That “benefit” would likely be offset by at least one… and possibly more… cases of diabetes caused by the drug, which is a very real risk.

    And a large number of patients on statins – up to 1 in 10 – battle muscle pain, in some cases so severe that muscle breaks down into blood and can damage the liver and kidneys.

    There’s also memory losssexual side effects… even stroke risk… all linked to this class of drug.

    You face ALL that… for a 5% shot at avoiding arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease????

    That’s nuts.

    Here’s a better plan…

    Don’t stress your cholesterol, because LDL just isn’t the big risk factor they’ve hyped it up to be.

    For real protection, eat better… drop a little weight… and stick to proven natural options that can help WITHOUT hurting.

    I suggest starting out with fish oil, L-carnitine, coenzyme Q10, magnesium, and vitamin E as mixed tocopherols.

  2. How to FIGHT DIRTY against cancer… and WIN!

    Sometimes you’ve gotta fight dirty to win – especially when you’re fighting a dirty enemy.

    And inside your body, there’s no cell that fights dirtier than cancer cells.

    They use EVERY trick in the book to hide… grow… spread… and kill.

    But today, I’m going to give you the weapon you need to fight back

    And it’s something that EVERY DOCTOR in the country has access to, right now.

    In a moment, I’ll give you exactly what you need to tell your doctor so he can offer it to you.

    He may not love it. He might say it’s pointless. He might even think you’re a little bit of a kook.

    But odds are, he’ll also agree that it’s harmless… so he shouldn’t give you too much grief over trying it.

    And when he sees what happens next…

    Well, let’s just say your own doctor could turn into a true believer himself!

    A cancer-destroying VITAMIN?

    Like I said, cancer fights dirty.

    In a battle like that, you need a weapon that’s not afraid to fight dirty back – and that’s where this tumor-fighting secret is at its best.

    It’s almost like a double agent.

    Cancer sees it and THINKS it’s a friend… and invites it right inside the cells. It soaks up it like sugar.

    And that’s when this double agent rips off its mask and reveals its true face.

    It’s not a friend at all – well, not to cancer.

    It’s an enemy – one that then destroys the cancer from the inside.

    And by the time the cancer cells figure out what’s going on, it’s already too late!

    So, what’s this weapon called?

    You’re going to laugh, because it’s something you already know pretty well…

    Vitamin C!

    But it’s NOT the kind you get from orange juice… or even a vitamin pill… because you just can’t reach the levels needed to fight cancer that way.

    You have to get it intravenously – the only way to rapidly raise blood levels high enough.

    Along with fighting the cancer directly, intravenous vitamin C can also:

    • ENHANCE chemo to make it more effect
    • ELIMINATE sickness from chemo
    • FIGHT side effects of radiation, and
    • HELP you heal faster after cancer surgery.

    Even the feds are starting to admit that IVC is helpful in many forms of cancer, especially for dealing with chemo…

    And it’s gaining a grudging acceptance among mainstream docs as a result.

    Yet most STILL won’t offer it!

    You have to ask, and you may even have to guide them through it. (Teaching the doctor about medicine – how ’bout that?)

    So, here’s what you do: Tell them you want the Riordan IVC protocol.

    If they know what it is, you’re all set.

    If they’ve never heard of it, no worries: It’s available for free online.

    You can search Google for it, print it, and then bring it to your doctor.

    He SHOULD be able to make it happen – but if he’s still struggling to figure it out, visit an experienced integrative oncologist.

    In Your Corner,

    Dr. Allan Spreen
