Statin drugs lower cholesterol and raise cancer and heart risk

Low cholesterol raises your cancer risk. A new study actually links low LDL levels with an increased risk of developing cancer. And it’s not the first study to do this. In fact, more than 20 studies have been done on cholesterol and cancer - and the overall majority linked cancer with low cholesterol. Certain cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins (such as atorvastatin, cerivastatin, lovastatin, pravastatin, simvastatin) also deplete levels of cancer fighting CoQ10 in the body. Taking CoQ10 is critical for statin drug users. If your doc has you on a statin drug without requiring CoQ10 also, they are a very bad doctor.

Would you rather be stabbed to death by a disease or shot to death with the side effects of drugs to treat the disease?

    Thanks for your response. I basically eat those foods you listed above including a lot of coconut oil. I haven’t been to a ‘doctor’ in over 5 years so maybe my HDL is fine at this point. I also exercise 5 or 6 times a week and keep myself slim.
    Thanks again for your time!

    I keep reading about how low cholesterol equals a higher chance of cancer and this concerns me because I’ve always had very low cholesterol and on top of that I now eat super healthy. Low cholesterol runs in my family and so does cancer. How can I raise it, any suggestions? Thanks!

    • The only cholesterol number you want to increase is high-density lipoprotein (HDL), “good” form of cholesterol that helps to lower bad cholesterol such as low-density lipoprotein (LDL). This improves your cholesterol levels and can reduce your chances of heart disease, heart attack and stroke. You can do this by eliminating trans-fatty acids from your diet- found in many fried foods, chips, crackers, cookies and other baked goods. Eat healthy fats – polyunsaturated fats, monounsaturated fats and essential fatty acids found in oils (olive, canola, peanut and flaxseed), cold-water fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel and herring), nuts (walnuts, pistachios, pecans and almonds), vegetables (soybeans, scallops, olives and squash) and poultry. Exercise!
