Have You Noticed What Crestor Is Doing?

by

One of the strategies Big Pharma is employing to increase sales is to arbitrarily lowering the threshold of various diseases to bring in more “patients” as needing to take their drugs. This has happened with diabetes. The threshold has been lowered from a blood sugar of 140 to 126 for needing drug therapy. The hypertension threshold has been lowered from 160 to 140 systolic BP, and 100 to 90 for the dialostolic BP. The hyperlipidemia (cholesterol) threshold has been lowered from 240 to 200. And the osteoporosis threshold has been reduced from -2.5 to -2.0
This has been reported in ” Overdiagnosed:Making People Sick in the Pursuit of Health” by H. Gilbert Welch, Lisa Schwartz and Steven Woloshin, all medical doctors.
So now to what Crestor is doing. In their most recent TV adds the doctor/actor casually mentions that we want to get our cholesterol levels  down to 100 !!!!. This is unconscionable. And seriously unhealthy.
