FMTV - Statin Nation II

Statin Nation II

Runtime: 75m 35s | Release date: 2015

Did you know that many countries around the world consume large amounts of saturated fat and cholesterol, yet also have an extremely low rate of heart disease? Or that people with high cholesterol are the ones who usually live the longest? These, and many other contradictions to the current view of heart disease, are investigated in $TATIN NATION II.

The film is in three parts. Part 1 explains how health authorities around the world have continued to ignore the huge amount of data suggesting that saturated fat and cholesterol do not play a causal role in heart disease. Part 2 examines the current system of using risk factors for disease prevention - which of these risk factors are correct, and can a person be reduced to a short list of numbers? Part 3 moves beyond the system currently used and investigates the real causes of heart disease - proposing for the first time an alternative model for thinking about the disease.

The film includes interviews with 12 leading experts in this field, and was shot on location in the UK, USA, Denmark, Sweden, France, Lithuania, Australia, Egypt and Japan.

Help Please
I'm not on FB for a while, so I have to ask for help here. My sister has just been put on statins - her cholesterol is "between 6 and 7" - and I am 99% sure I am going to recommend she stop taking them, because of these two Statin Nation docos, because this latest doco is only 4 years old, and because of information I have read on a few other credible sites, and the overwhelming message is that there is not enough research proving that enough people benefit from statins to compensate for the side effects (ironically, kinda like immunisations and vaccines, yes? ).

My question to you is this - does anyone know - can she stop taking atorvastatin 20mg immediately, or does she have to reduce it slowly? (She has been taking them for two weeks).

Very illuminating and eye-opening movie. Found it to be another must-watch along with part 1. Think twice before you take statins: watch this movie first and make your own decision whether it is worth it. Especially when the doctor prescribing it to you is getting money for putting you on this drug... It is indeed organised crime.
