(NaturalNews) The statin drugs prescribed to over 100 million people around the world have now been exposed as cellular poisons that accelerate aging and promote muscle fatigue, diabetes, memory loss and more.
at Tulane University in New Orleans found that statin drugs -- which

have found the heart disease drug badly affects our stem cells, the
internal medical system which repairs damage to our bodies and protects
us from muscle and joint pain as well as memory loss. ... Professor Reza
Izadpanah, a stem cell biologist and lead author of the research
published in the American Journal of Physiology, said: "Our study shows
statins may speed up the aging process."
