Are these popular meds giving you CANCER?!

When your blood pressure tics up, your doc will reach into his drawer… and he ain’t pulling out a lollipop.
He’s poking around for his prescription pad so he can medicate you for a condition that — as you’ll see in a moment — you might not even have.
Your doc will act like it’s no big deal.
“We’ll start out small,” he’ll promise, offering just a little old diuretic to bring your BP levels down.
Well, friend, before you fill that scrip, there’s something you need to know… an urgent warning you need to SEE and SHARE far and wide… because it turns out that “little old” diuretic packs a BIG NEW risk that’s far beyond making you pee your brains out.
It could give you CANCER!
The drug is called hydrochlorothiazide, a.k.a. HCTZ — and the new study finds that taking it as directed can do a number on your skin by lowering your resistance to UV rays and setting the stage for rapid aging and lasting damage.
That, in turn, can boost your risk of both squamous cell and basal cell carcinoma — the two most common forms of skin cancer.
Take this drug, and your risk of developing either form of the disease jumps by SEVEN TIMES!
This might seem like a random link, but there’s nothing random about it.
A study a few years back found that these same drugs can increase the risk of cancer on your lips, which is essentially the same type of cancer.
That one found that 11 percent of all lip cancers might be caused by this drug — similar to the new study, which finds 10 percent of all non-melanoma skin cancers could be trigged by the pee pills.
While skin and lip cancers are the non-deadly forms of the disease, they still have to be treated with a painful surgery that can leave behind a nasty old battle mark… and maybe even a few potholes right in your kisser.
All for a drug you didn’t need — and, like I said, for a condition you might not even have!
Hypertension is one of the biggest botched diagnoses on the planet — because in most cases, the BP readings your doc picks up on in his office are nothing like your normal readings at home.
If your own doc thinks you have high blood pressure, double-check his work. Get your own reader… take your own measurements… and average them out over the course of a few weeks.
Then, let your doc know. Odds are, you might be able to talk your way out of meds altogether if your levels are normal outside of his office.
