Congestive heart failure has been increasing at epidemic rates, including a 50 percent rise in mortality within five years of diagnosis.
In fact, for every 1 ng/ dL decline in total testosterone, there is a 28 percent increase in risk of mortality for people who suffer from congestive heart failure, according to a 2006 report in the journal Circulation.
Why would congestive heart failure be rising at epidemic rates? It’s not our aging population that is causing this. I think the answer is clear: The overuse of statin medications.
Statins block the production of CoQ10, the vitamin-like substance that is integral for proper muscle function.
However, CoQ10 depletion is not the only reason statins should be avoided.
These drugs have been shown to significantly lower testosterone levels, as reported in The Journal of Urology in 2010.
I have said it before and I will repeat it here: Statin medications should be pulled from the marketplace.
