Statins Starve The Brain: Cholesterol Correlated Cognition

Statins stealthily strain and starve the brain leaving us stuck in a stupendous stupor; statins make us stupid. Alliteration aside, cholesterol is clearly correlated with cognition, since our brains are composed of about one fourth of this waxy substance we call cholesterol. Statins are drugs that lower cholesterol. High cholesterol is ostensibly the cause of heart disease, and since heart disease is the number one cause of death -save for iatrogenesis or deaths caused by allopathic intervention– cholesterol lowering drugs are arguably the most prescribed and profitable drugs in the universe.   The statin drug called Lipitor was the singular most prescribed drug…
