His stories appear almost everyday in Yahoo News. Initially I also wonder who's this man who receives very wide media coverage..until I found out this article in Natural News (http://www.naturalnews.com/023289.html)
Who is Senator Ted Kennedy?
Edward Moore "Ted" Kennedy (born February 22, 1932) is the senior United States Senator from Massachusetts and a member of the Democratic Party. In office since November 1962, Kennedy is the second most senior member of the Senate.The most prominent living member of the Kennedy family, he is the youngest brother of the late President John F. Kennedy.
On May 20, 2008, it was announced that Kennedy has a malignant brain tumour, diagnosed after he experienced a seizure
Ted Kennedy, among others, suffering from chronic hypertension and high cholesterol. He's taking a 'statin' drug to lower the cholesterol.
Unfortunately, it was thought that-'statin'-among the drugs he has so adamantly promoted was the culprit---leading to his brain tumour
Statins and Cancer
Statins interfere with normal immune function in multiple ways. They are so effective at suppressing your immune system that they have been researched as immune-suppressing options for organ transplant patients. That is not good news for anyone having to fight the flu or combat cancer
Statins interfere with core survival systems that are "branches" in the normal production of LDL cholesterol. Such interference in health is a major side effect of statins – and widely ignored by prescribing physicians. For example, selenium-containing genes are reduced/blocked by statins, including the production of cellular glutathione – your cell's most important antioxidant that protects against cell mutations that can lead to cancer
Important anti-cancer nutrients such as vitamin D and coenzyme Q10 are also reduced by statins. And a primary anti-cancer cell-modulating substance known as isoprenoids are reduced by statins. Isoprenoids in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are the reason eating these foods is associated with less cancer. Blocking your body's natural production of them with statin drugs is not a good idea.
Brain cells are weakened by statins, as every brain cell has a naturally higher level of cholesterol in its cell membrane so it can live longer (brain cells do not split and divide like other cells).
Thus, super high levels of statins are immune toxic, cripple your body's natural cancer defense system, and weaken nerves. The longer a person stays on these high doses the worse the problems become – as damage is cumulative and insidiously progressive over time. When combined with blood pressure medication this creates an environment within the nervous system ripe for cancer growth, a fact that simply cannot be denied based on the timing of Kennedy's problems.
