Statins stimulate atherosclerosis and heart failure: pharmacological mechanisms.

This article reviews some of the mechanisms that may lead to increased risk of heart problems from statin medications. They are metabolic poisons affecting vitamin K2 and CoQ10.

“In contrast to the current belief that cholesterol reduction with statins decreases atherosclerosis, we present a perspective that statins may be causative in coronary artery calcification and can function as mitochondrial toxins that impair muscle function in the heart and blood vessels through the depletion of coenzyme Q10 and ‘heme A’, and thereby ATP generation.

Nitric oxide regulates mitochondrial respiration and cell functions by inhibiting cytochrome oxidase

Nitric oxide inhibits cellular respiration, “one of the key ways a cell releases chemical energy to fuel cellular activity”, by competing with oxygen. This may be one of the main reasons the nitric oxide can have detrimental effects. More

Introduction To Phage Therapy


Bacteriophages are viruses which are found naturally in the environment. They use bacterial cells to replicate, destroying the bacteria in the process. “Phages” provide an alternative to antibiotics and they may be the solution to antibiotic resistance. This article gives a brief overview of the history of phage therapy, their mechanism of action, risk and benefits.
