Looking for a reason to escape Big Pharma’s DEADLIEST new blood thinners?
I don’t just have ONE for you today…
I’ve got 775 million reasons!
Because that’s how many dollars two drug companies are shelling out to settle thousands of lawsuits that accused them of HIDING the deadly risks of a blood thinner med.
Rather than face the music over those allegations… they faced their accountants.
They struck a deal that – of course – admits to no wrongdoing.
But that $775 million check sure speaks volumes, doesn’t it?
In fact, it’s practically SCREAMING at you right now!
The bloody truth about ‘newer and better’ blood thinners
Now, it goes without saying that ANY blood thinner is dangerous.
ALL of them are.
But that was supposed to be the whole appeal of rivaroxaban, better known as Xarelto.
It could supposedly thin the blood… WITHOUT the bleeding risks of the older meds.
Or so they claimed…
And as a result, it’s been selling like mad.
Its makers were probably LAUGHING as they signed that $775 million check to make this problem disappear…
Because they can wipe that out with just THREE MONTHS of sales of this drug!
But even early on, it was clear that American patients were being sold a bill of goods with this… and the rest of the new wave of blood thinners on the market.
They started dropping like flies!
That whole safety promise was a sham – because just like the old thinners, these meds can cause you to gush blood like a burst pipe.
They’ve also been linked to heart attack, stroke and death.
The FDA should ban the things…
But who are we kidding? That’s not how they operate.
They should’ve pushed for better and truly safer drugs.
But they don’t do THAT either.
Instead, they approved antidotes for these meds.
Yep -- we now live in a world where the drugs are so bad that we need other meds standing by to cancel them out.
How kooky is that?
Maybe this recent attention will get some people to switch to safer meds… but like I said, safety is relative when it comes to blood thinners.
The oldest and best-tested, of course, is warfarin -- a drug so deadly it was used in rat poison. But at least we know its risks… and docs know what to watch for.
With the new stuff, they don’t even know all the risks yet!
Frankly, you couldn’t pay me to take any of them.
Some non-drug options include:
- vitamin E
- essential fatty acids
Big Pharma has, of course, ensured that there’s ZERO funding to truly study them.
But they can work in some cases.
This is important: Don’t try this on your own.
If you want to try to thin your blood without a blood thinner, work closely with a naturopathic doctor who really knows what he’s doing… and can give you his honest take on your best options.
