Handing Out Statin Drugs at Fast Food Restaurants? What's Next?

A lead researcher from Imperial College London has declared that fast food restaurants should hand out statin drugs as if they were ketchup packets. That way, he says, people can counteract the bad effects of eating junk food with the so-called "good effects" of taking statin drugs with their meals.

This is not a joke! A medical doctor from Imperial College London whose study was published in the American Journal of Cardiology has proclaimed that people who eat burgers and milkshakes at fast food restaurants should be given free statin drugs to counteract the cholesterol effects of eating burgers.

"Fast food outlets could provide statin drugs free of charge," says Dr. Darrel Francis, lead author of study, who goes on to complain that statin drugs shouldn't be prescription drugs at all. People should be able to get them as easily as asking for a packet of ketchup: "It makes sense to make risk-reducing supplements available just as easily as the unhealthy condiments that are provided free of charge," Francis says, calling statins a "supplement" instead of a drug.

What Francis doesn't mention is the disastrous side effects of statin drugs: memory loss, extreme muscle pain and weakness, kidney failure, the loss of CoQ10 (a vital nutrient for heart health), liver damage, erectile dysfunction, constipation and much more. But this doctor from Imperial College London apparently doesn't believe such side effects are a big deal. Statin drugs are so safe, he says, that fast food restaurants should just hand them out like candy.

The very premise of this argument is extremely dangerous: That you can go ahead and keep eating toxic fast food as long as you "protect" yourself by taking dangerous chemical medications. But in the real world, where the laws of biochemistry don't cater to the absurd ideas of drug-pushing researchers, fast food is bad for your health... and so is taking chemical medications.

If Imperial College London can actually issue a press release touting this quack research, and if a high-level researcher like Dr. Darrel Francis can genuinely conclude that free medications should be handed out to customers like ketchup packets, then what else might these people come up with?
