    They looked at 93,676 women 50 to 79 years-old and followed them for an average of 5.9 years.

    Of these 93,676 women they found that 30,219 women had hypertension but no history of CVD.

    Among these 30,219 women with hypertension, roughly 20,000 were taking drugs for blood pressure, and 10,000 were not taking drugs.

    These women were not excluded from the study. They just weren’t given drugs.

    So these women were the same, just that some were given drugs and some were not.

  • astro0004:

    @larryshobbs My concern is that your basis for a relative risk increase of 74% is based on a placebo group that apparently did not participate in the study that you mentioned in your video. They were EXCLUDED. So what study was the rate for cardiovascular deaths in post menopausal women with hypertension and no history of CVD derived from?

    @astro0004

    Potassium bicarbonate lowered my blood pressure by about 20 points. I posted a video on this.

    You can also get your this from 16-24 oz of Low-Sodium V8 Juice.

    This is giving the body what it is lacking.

    All the drugs do is interfere with natural processes.

    Beta BLOCKER
    Calcium channel BLOCKER
    Angiotensin II receptor BLOCKER
    ACE INHIBITOR

    They are all blocking or inhibiting natural processes.

    This is why all the drugs cause problems and make people feel lousy.

  • larryshobbs:

    @astro0004

    Also see the video on the women taking a diuretic plus a calcium channel blocker.

    The women given this combination of blood pressure drugs were 2.4 times MORE likely (136% more likely) to die of cardiovascular disease during the 5.9 year follow-up than women taking NO blood pressure medicines even though the average systolic pressure was 11 points LOWER in the drug group than the no drug group (138 mm Hg vs 149 mm Hg) according to a 2004 study.

  • larryshobbs:

    @astro0004 (continued)

    Calcium channel blockers also:
    - increase the risk of depression
    - increase the risk of suicide 4.5-fold according to a Swiss study
    - increase the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding
    - increase the risk of cancer
    - increase the risk of heart attack

    I think they are garbage drugs.

    I’m not sure that they should ever be used.

  • larryshobbs:

    @astro0004 The women all had hypertension. That was the criteria. The percent death is due to the length of the study. If the follow-up was longer, the percentages would have been higher. The point is that even though calcium channel blockers lowered blood pressure by 10 points, they INCREASED the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. (Continued)

  • astro0004:

    such risk of cardiovascular mortality if they weren’t included in the study? Also, statistical significance was not determined, so how can you say that a true difference exists between the calcium channel blocker and placebo cohorts?

  • astro0004:

    I hate when data from studies are explained in terms of relative risks. When a layman see a 74% increase in cardiovascular death due to calcium channel blockers, they are blown away by that statistic. If you look at the absolute risk increase comparative to the placebo group there is a 0.80% increase in the risk of cardiovascular death (simply 1.87-1.07). Now, back to the study. It excluded women with HTN and not receiving antihypertensive medication. How were these patients determined to have

  • larryshobbs:

    @calkid31 (continued)… where Dr. Hoffer describes exactly how he discovered it, and exactly how it works, and also hearing patients talk about how they were cured with his treatment, I became a believer. It is amazing to me that his treatment is not tried in every schizophrenic, but perhaps, most doctors / psychiatrists are simply not aware of his work. I have also posted some videos with audio clips from his speeches, and plan to post some more.

  • larryshobbs:

    @calkid31 I also give credit to Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD, who died last year. Starting in the 1950′s, he discovered a very effective treatment for acute schizophrenia using niacin, vitamin C and some other things. This discovery still has not been recognized by the medical community. My guess is because the drug companies want doctors to believe drugs are the answer. I was very skeptical when I first read about Dr. Hoffer’s discovery, but after listening to a number of his speeches… (continued)

  • larryshobbs:

    @calkid31 You’re welcome. Thank you. Another reason for my epiphany — Joan Mathews Larson, PhD who has been treating anxiety, depression, and drug and alcohol problems for 30 years with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids. And her success rate is far superior to drugs for anxiety and depression, or talk therapy. I only became aware of her a couple years ago. You might look at some of her videos I posted.

  • larryshobbs:

    @larryshobbs (continued). I finally realized why this is, and they are all related. It is because all of these drugs interfere with the way the body is supposed to work. Statins inhibit an enzyme, but enzymes are there for a reason. The body is doing what it is supposed to be doing. Blood pressure drugs inhibit an enzyme and blood receptors. However, high blood pressure is not caused by too much of this enzyme or too many receptors, so how can this fix the problem? It can’t. Thus, my epiphany.

  • calkid31:

    @larryshobbs Good news. Was just curious, because I really have a strong disdain for them. Anyways. thanks for the quick replies.

  • larryshobbs:

    @calkid31 No, I am not a Scientologist. I used believe much more in drugs, but I had an epiphany 1.5 years ago, at the beginning of 2008 because of all the problems that prescription drugs had caused someone I know. I had known for 20 years cholesterol drugs don’t work. I had known for probably 10 years diabetes drugs often did not reduce the risk of death, but increased it. I also discovered, as noted in this video, that blood pressure drugs do not necessarily reduce the risk of death. More…

  • larryshobbs:

    @calkid31 Thanks for the info.

  • larryshobbs:

    @calkid31 Thanks for the info. I was not aware calcium channel blockers are used for cluster headaches. I agree that for you, the benefits probably far outweigh the risks.

    This video is more about women who are given calcium channel blockers for high blood pressure, a “disease” with no symptoms. In these women, there appears to be no benefit, but, in fact, an increased risk of death.

    For these women, they should not be fooled into thinking they are good for you because blood pressure drops.

  • calkid31:

    by the way, I have to ask: Are you a scientologist? because your fear of psychologists and the way you advocate the use of vitamins to battle everything seems rather familiar. If you are a scientologist then you would lose all credibility.

  • calkid31:

    In this case the drug companies do not profit from Cluster Headache patients, because there are so few of us. .1 percent I believe.

  • calkid31:

    I don’t know about your findings, but some people have no other choice if this is the only thing that helps them. As is the case for those suffering from Cluster Headaches. Sadly, there is not enough research out there to find other methods than the few that have already been found to work. And I can tell you that in the case of cluster headaches (suicide headaches) the alternative of suffering unimaginable pain is worth any side effects or even risk of death for most sufferers
