Justin Smith Of Statin Nation: The Dangers Of Low Cholesterol, Statin Drugs & Pharmaceutical Interests.
Do you know someone taking statin drugs or has concerns regarding their cholesterol? If so then this interview is a must!
Our awesome guest this week is Justin Smith. He's the man behind the documentaries Statin Nation and Statin Nation II which are documentary films about cholesterol and cholesterol lowering medications.
Have we got it all wrong? In the short video above we discuss the major concerns of having your cholesterol too low and the health risks that go with it.
More than 40 million people around the world are currently taking medications to lower their cholesterol level. But an increasing number of doctors and researchers are questioning the supposed link between cholesterol and heart disease.
29 billion dollars is a conservative estimate of the current value of the cholesterol-lowering industry.

Our awesome guest today is Justin Smith, Justin welcome to the show. Justin: Thank you very much, great to be here.
Guy: Mate I just realized this morning that you are our fourth documentary maker to come on the show. They’ve always said the same thing like when they started out they had this great idea and they went boy, that’s a lot of hard work. My first question to you is just for our listeners who might not be familiar, what led you in the first place to actually think about starting to make a documentary?
Justin: Well it was a surprise to me, because a number of years ago if someone said you’ll end up making documentary films I would have said, oh you are [00:03:00] crazy, that’s never going to happen. I got into this through the issue really
because I was working a number of years ago as a personal trainer and nutrition coach. Through my own independent research, I became aware of the cholesterol myths, and all the myths associated with the fact that
I came across … There is a doctrine in Sweden many people would already be aware of. Doctor [inaudible 00:03:28] and he of the classic [inaudible 00:03:48].
Guy: Sorry Justin, it’s breaking up a little bit.
Justin: Okay, so after reading [inaudible 00:03:55] Scott’s book, then eventually I [00:04:00] kept on doing my own … More of my own independent research, and that
led to me self publishing my own book about cholesterol. After publishing the book I was still very frustrated, because I wanted to get the information out to a lot more people, and they came up with the idea of making a documentary film. They had to contact some of the key researchers in that field, and I was actually relay surprised they all said yes, most of them said yes, and eventually got the first documentary together Statin Nation. That was really well received, so I went on then to make Statin Nation 2.
Guy: Statin Nation came out 2012, is that correct?
Justin: Yes, at the end of 2012 it was released online and then the DVD was available early 2013.
Guy: Yeah right yeah.
Statin Nation on the internet somewhere, and I ordered a copy of the DVD and saw it, and thought wow this is like radical stuff and really, really inspiring and thought provoking. Then because I live in Sydney and my parents are in the UK, and then I had a phone call with my parents, my mom and dad, and I said to my dad how are you doing? He said I’m okay, and there is my mom in the background, and she said tell him about the pills you are on, and I said, oh, well so tell me about these pills. He said, oh I have just been put on some medication to help because my cholesterol is really high.
He said I’m not feeling very well, he said my legs are really aching and I get
really, really tired, and I just don’t feel myself. I asked him what the name [00:06:00] of the pills were, and I did little bit of research and realized that they were Statin drug, and was shocked especially after watching the movie. I ordered a copy of the movie, and sent it to his house in the UK, and I said I want you to watch this and then I want you to give this to your doctor. He watched and he said, oh God I can’t believe this is just … This is crazy stuff. He did exactly that, he gave it to his doctor as well and his doctor watched it, and his doctor took my dad off the pills and said, I need to do some more research. Subsequently from this point forward like he’s been fine and all of the side effects that he was experiencing have disappeared.
Really, really thought provoking and just great to be able to point somebody to an independent impartial source to say, “Look, I’ve found this stuff, but you relay need to watch this and make up your own opinions,” so thanks so much for making the movie, it was excellent.

Bruce: I am so happy to be here with you guys because you guys are putting out the word about how we can move into this world peaceably, happily and moving to the future. Thank you for this opportunity and also I want to thank you for letting me speak to your community because we have some wonderful things to talk about for self empowerment.
Guy: Oh, a hundred percent, a hundred percent. You know it's interesting and I have to ask you this question, because when people ask me how do you describe Bruce's work, I go, "Oh." You know, and I really have to think about it. My first question will be to you, if you are on an airplane and a complete stranger sat next to you and then asked you what did you do for a living, what would you say?
Bruce: I help people empower themselves to take back their control of their lives and to realize that they're not victims of forces outside of their control that they're actual masters of their lives. Since the lack of a certain amount of knowledge, they're not being able to effectively control themselves. You know, it's interesting there's a phrase called "knowledge is power" and yet there's a corollary that's very, it's much more relevant and that is "a lack of knowledge is a lack of power." We are powerless not because we're not powerful but we are powerless because of the programming and knowledge that we have received is actually disempowering for us as individuals.
