Try and remember as your read these posts that we are talking about ONE MILLION plus people a year having heart attacks in the USA alone and approximately 60% of those are FATAL.
(I praise the LORD above that HE used traditional medicine including EKG's, nuclear EKG's, Heart Cath's and heart surgery to very possibly SAVE MY LIFE. Without the quadruple bypass surgery and despite my concept of myself as INVINCIBLE and without any symptoms or chest pain, shortness of breath etc. I could have dropped on my nose one day walking down the sidewalk. I UNDERSTAND, RECOGNIZE AND APPRECIATE THAT FACT....I really, really do and I am GRATEFUL FOR THE SURGERY.)
That being said, if the information I have put in the last 10 or 12 blog posts I have done concerning Linus Paulings USA Patent in 1994 for the CURE of heart disease utilizing vitamin C, L-lysine and L-Proline had been WIDELY AVAILABLE AND recognized and discussed with patients over the last 15 or 20 years, I VERY LIKELY would not have needed bypass surgery and my arteries would have been clear. I also have a great deal of respect for the surgeons who do these bypass operations. I honestly feel the majority of these surgeon's are honest, dedicated, kind, caring, hard working individuals. The same can be said for the cardiologists' and every one of their staff members from the receptionist to the nurses, nurses aides and everyone working in the medical field. My problem lies more with those that are purposefully working behind the scenes to cover up the work done by Linus Pauling and others because of a PROFIT MOTIVE (I.E 30 billion dollars a year from Precription drugs)
I am well aware that Dr. Linus Pauling and Dr. Matthias Rath and others have their critics, however from what I have read most information criticizing the cure of heart disease with supplementation of mega does of Vitamin C, lysine and proline are sponsored by Big pharma or those who have a financial interest in perpetuating that cholesterol is YOUR ENEMY, and everyone needs to be on STATIN DRUGS including school children, etc. I have even read in print where it is being suggested that statins be put in community water supplies. In addition most of these studies I have looked at do NOT follow the recommendations of Linus Pauling or Matthias Rath in doseage requirements. In my most recent post of a study performed and sponsored by Big Pharma, less than 1/16 of the Vitamin C doesage was used to try and disprove that Vitamin C had any redeeming value above the 60 mg dose to prevent scurvy in sailors out to sea for extended periods.
In addition Vitamin C is a nutrient based supplement which your body NEEDS and can assimilate. The same can be said for L-Lysine which is an essential amino acid and L-Proline which is a non-essential amino acid (since your body can make it). Humans unlike animals do not produce their own vitamin C, like animals do. Most drugs including statins come with a LONG LIST of side effects, some of them fatal or crippling in nature. They are also NOT a natural product and readily digested by the human body and therefore alter your digestive tract or do other possible damage to one or more organs such as your liver, pancreas, kidneys etc. (DRUGS are a foreign substance in your system). My understanding is that Vitamin C comes with a warning sign too.......if you ingest too much, you might get diarrhea and if you then back down the amount of vitamin C ingested, the diarrhea goes away. I CAN LIVE WITH THAT. That side effect is what I would personally call the SHORT LIST. If you google Lipitor side effects, you can quickly count TWENTY SEVEN of them in about 12 seconds. The side effects list then has a disclaimer that this list is NOT COMPLETE. I suspect it is because they simply do not know what else it may do inside your body. It is an open ended scenario. By the way, guess what?...........diarrhea is also on the list of side effects with Lipitor. OOPS, I forgot to mention the 1-800-BAD DRUG ads on TV......IF you are a post menopausal female and have been taking lipitor, it just might give you Type 2 diabetes. Better make that short list in 12 seconds 28 SIDE EFFECTS.
Following is another LINK along these lines:
The article is VERY LONG, so I have only copied a portion of it here. It is also VERY INFORMATIVE so I urge you to open the link and read it for yourself. REMEMBER, I am not a doctor, and have no formal medical training of any kind. I am a recent quadruple bypass heart surgery survivor. I am passing along research and information I have found to be fascinating for anyone who would like to have an alternative approach to the status quo statin drugs, blood thinners, cholesterol is your enemy information put out by BIG PHARMA and the medical community at large. You decide for yourself. Dan
