Recently, Full Measure with Sheryl Attkisson aired a piece describing some of the financial ties between experts who set the cholesterol clinical guidelines and the pharmaceutical industry. This was something that was included in STATIN NATION way back in 2012 but its very rewarding to see larger parts of the media slowly catching up.
Full Measure is produced by and airs nationally on stations of the Sinclair Broadcast Group. According to their YouTube channel it is available in 43 million households via ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CW, MyTV, Univision and Telemundo affiliates. Since I am not in the U.S. I didn’t see the broadcast however, someone from the Statin Nation Facebook group kindly informed me about it.
Incidentally, most blog entries are posted on the Statin Nation Facebook page first, so if you use Facebook please follow the page: https://www.facebook.com/statinnation
Even if you are already aware of the issue concerning clinical guidelines it is still worth watching Sheryl Attkisson’s piece below, since there is an interesting short discussion with a statinator doctor who receives quite a lot of money for her views.
For reference, here is a very short excerpt from Statin Nation that first publicized this in 2012, also featuring Dr. Abramson!
