You weren’t born yesterday.
You know an empty promise when you hear one – and you know better than to trust ANY politician, no matter what party he’s in.
But don’t let your guard down just because the election’s over.
There are still empty promises being thrown around, including some that could be coming at you where you least expect it: your doctor’s office!
He’ll promise you the sun, the moon, and the stars… if only you’ll promise to swallow every drug he gives you.
Well, friend, don’t knock back those pills yet – because the latest research shows how two of the biggest promises he’s been making about blood pressure meds and statins are also the emptiest.
Docs love to spin fairytales about the drugs, claiming they can do more than what the label claims – and that if you toe the line and take your pills, you can dodge a condition seniors fear even more than a heart attack.
They can cut your risk of dementia!
Sounds good, right? Sounds GREAT, I bet – and that’s no doubt why these are some of the best-selling meds on the planet, with tens of millions of seniors taking them in the United States alone.
But you know what they say about something that sounds too good to be true…
And, in this case, it ISN’T true, because the new study shows it’s all bunk.
Seniors with the highest risk for cognitive decline were given either BP meds, statins, both, or a placebo – and five and a half years later, there were no differences at all in their rates of memory loss.
They all had the same level of cognitive decline – and in every group, it was exactly the level of decline you’d expect to see in any group of older folks.
The researchers were incredulous. They couldn’t believe it didn’t work – and they’ve vowed more studies on this.
But you don’t need to wait for them to get their act together.
If you want to protect your heart and brain at the same time, you don’t need drugs or their side effects.
What you really need is a decent B complex and the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil.
Both of these nutrients fight the inflammation linked to heart problems, and both of them can give your brain the kick it needs to keep firing on all cylinders – and you can read all about it in this free report from my Daily Dose archives.
