A new study confirms cholesterol-lowering statin drugs cause eye problems.
Medscape News reports: "Statin users are more than 50% likelier to develop age-related cataracts... And type 2 diabetics who use statins are at even greater risk of cataracts."
This is hardly a surprise since the lens membrane of the eye requires a constant supply of cholesterol. In fact, the lens membrane contains the highest cholesterol content of any known membrane. This cholesterol has to be synthesised locally. Statins of course, impair this cholesterol production and can therefore cause an alteration in the function of the lens.
Dr Richard Karas from Tufts University School of Medicine tried to play down these findings by trying to suggest that these eye problems eventually afflict everyone. Another example of the statin supporters ignoring the damage caused by statins.
A few of the voices of reason featured on the site include Malcolm Kendrick MD, Paul Rosch MD, and Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride.
Millions of people have wisely stopped taking statins, just as millions have switched away from the absurd low fat/high carbohydrate diet forced onto us by our "betters." Justin Smith's work will further the cause.
