  1. New DISASTER drug combo promoted in BOGUS study

    If juggling daggers ain’t thrilling enough for ya…

    If Russian roulette looks TOO easy…

    And if picking fights with mobsters just doesn’t quite get your adrenaline flowing…

    Then the drug industry is cooking up something extra special, just for you.

    It’s a heart drug that can give you the thrill of so many risks at once – because it’s not just a single medication.

    It’s not even 2 or 3 meds.

    No, my friend, they’re working on a plan to give you a single pill with 4 risky meds inside.

    Any ONE of these drugs can make you miserable.

    As you’ll see in a moment, these drugs supposedly designed to “save you” could do the opposite… and KILL you instead.

    Now we’re talkin’ REAL thrills!

    5 meds… when you really want NONE

    For years, the medical mainstream’s fantasy has been a single pill that forces everything you hate down your throat at once.

    Now, they’re pushing forward with a cockamamie plan for a combo pill

    And they’re hoping it’ll be the Next Big Thing in mainstream medicine.

    Their latest attempt at a “polypill” combines the cholesterol-lowering statin drug simvastatin with 3 BP pills:

    1. atenolol
    2. hydrochlorothiazide, and
    3. ramipril.

    They CLAIM this combo… 4 drugs in one… can cut the risk of major cardiovascular problems by 1/5th.

    But wait! There’s more!

    The patients in the study ALSO got either an aspirin or a placebo.

    In case you’re keeping score, that means some folks were given 5 different meds in 2 pills.

    In the study, this combo cut heart risk by 31%... which SOUNDS great.

    Except then this gets really, really fishy… really, really quickly.

    First, they claimed the people on the placebo had WORSE side effects than the folks on the meds.

    That included ZERO increase in bleeding risk in the people on aspirin -- a drug absolutely NOTORIOUS for its bleeding risk.

    Sorry, I’m not buying it.

    To me, this suggests they were crazy-careful about who they put in this study. My guess is they gave the drugs to very healthy people with very low risks – NOT the kind of real-world patients who need help with heart protection.

    Second, over nearly 5 years, there were very few problems in ANY group, which pretty much proves my first point.

    Just 5.8% of those on the double-placebo had any kind of heart problem to begin with… versus 4.1% on the polypill plus aspirin.

    And third, they had so much trouble MAKING the polypill by the end of the study, 43% couldn’t take their meds routinely because of manufacturing issues.

    So how in the heck can they make ANY conclusion at all???

    I say, throw this study in the circular file.

    Fact is, you DON’T need the statin part of the equation… because cholesterol by itself isn’t the problem.

    You can cut BP without meds (think magnesium for starters)…

    And you sure as heck DON’T need that aspirin.

    Even mainstream groups no longer recommend aspirin for primary prevention for many people… including folks over 70.

    Get back to basics instead.

    Skip the sugars and refined foods… lose a little weight… and pop some CoQ10, fish oil, and vitamin E.

    Then, speak to a naturopathic physician about some drug-free steps you can take specific to your needs, risks, and lifestyle.

  2. [Exposed!] How a CHEAP compound became an EXPENSIVE heart drug

    Here’s my new plan to make a million bucks…

    I’m gonna sell a HOT new drug that everyone will want.

    It’s gonna be a top seller because it’ll promise to SLASH the risk of death from two of the scariest bogeymen for heart patients:

    • heart attack by 40%
    • stroke by 60%

    When I say this drug will be HOT, I mean it… because that’s just what’ll be inside it.

    HOT SAUCE!

    Except instead of $2.99 for a bottle of Tabasco that’ll last for months, my “pharmaceutical” version of it will run for HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS a month.

    Think I’m crazy?

    What till you get a load of what the FDA just approved!

    All the benefits of a heart drug… WITHOUT the actual drug!

    The feds have once again expanded the approval for Vascepa, after studies found it cut the risk of major cardiovascular events by 25%.

    Good? Sure. That’s a solid number.

    However, Vascepa isn’t some truly life-changing drug created with cutting-edge science.

    It’s little more than an expensive synthetic version of one of the two main omega-3 fatty acids in plain ol’ fish oil – EPA.

    This “drug” runs about $300 a month.

    Most people don’t pay that, of course, since insurance may cover it. (No wonder premiums are through the roof!)

    But even if your share of the bill is a $25 copay… you’re STILL paying WAY MORE than you would for a basic high-quality fish oil supplement.

    In fact, a decent fish oil supplement will cost about $25 a YEAR -- not a month.

    And the supplement will also give you a whole lot MORE, including brain-saving DHA along with your heart-happy EPA.

    So… forget the drug. It’s not worth it at ANY price.

    Get some honest-to-goodness fish oil instead.

    And while I was kidding about making a hot sauce drug, I wasn’t joking about the benefits…

    One recent study found that eating chili peppers 4X a week will cut the risk of death from heart attack by 40%... and stroke by 60%.

    But don’t stop there.

    For the ULTIMATE heart-protecting, stroke-stopping, circulation-enhancing, life-preserving super plan, add these essentials to your routine (if you haven’t already):

    • 1,000 mg L-carnitine
    • 100 mg coenzyme Q10
    • 500-800 mg magnesium
    • 400-800 mg vitamin E

    None of these things will make anyone rich (at least, not until they give ’em the EPA treatment and sell a patented synthetic version as a drug).

    But they WILL protect your heart for just pennies a day.
