Former NASA scientist-astronaut, medical doctor and anti-statin medication advocate Dr. Duane Graveline is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 774 of "The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show."
Today we have a very special LLVLC Show Classic episode to share with you because it features a man whose hearing has now sadly deteriorated to the point that he's now unable to do interviews anymore to tell his story. Jimmy Moore was privileged to be able to interview him via e-mail for his bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? to get his perspective on cholesterol, heart disease and the negative health implications that come from taking statin drugs. He is Dr. Duane Graveline and operates one of the best informational web sites on the Internet about the dangers of the cholesterol-lowering statin medications like Lipitor and Crestor called SpaceDoc.com.
If you've read Cholesterol Clarity, then you are already familiar with Dr. Graveline's sad story about what happened to him when he began taking Lipitor for his "high" cholesterol. Since the original recording of this interview, his condition has gotten progressively worse to the point that he'll soon be confined to a wheelchair because of statin-induced ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). Listen in as you'll hear Dr. Graveline share his horrifying story of dealing with the aftermath of taking Lipitor and inducing an episode of a condition called global transient amnesia, how statins can cause major, permanent damage to human mitochondrial DNA, resulting in loss of strength, joint pain, and memory loss, the falseness of the cholesterol theory of atherosclerosis, the REAL reason statins may show benefit in dealing with atherosclerosis, why CoQ-10 is a MUST for anyone taking a statin, why you cannot buy a pill with a statin and CoQ-10 together, and a whole lot more! We count it a real privilege to have had the honor to speak with this health champion and are pleased to present this special LLVLC Show Classic episode with you today from deep within our archives.
