[Warning] Top Arthritis Drug Linked to CANCER!
Well, folks… Big Pharma has done it again.
They’ve once again managed to convince the masses that one of their ‘miracle’ prescription drugs is perfectly safe – and can be handed out like candy.
And for so long, they’ve done such a good job of it, nobody seems to even bat an eye!
That’s because a shocking new study has found that one of Big Pharma’s top arthritis drugs is actually linked to some very serious health issues – including CANCER!
Here’s everything you need to know… including the steps you need to take if you’re currently on this medication.
According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, a medication aimed at remedying rheumatoid arthritis (RA) called tofacitinib (sold under the name Xeljanz), can increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, and even cancer.
Tofacitinib falls under the drug class known as JAK inhibitors – a new class of arthritis drugs designed to interfere with your body’s signaling pathways that can contribute to the inflammation associated with RA.
And while that sounds like an effective treatment for RA, updated clinical trials around the drug have found that tofacitinib patients were nearly 33% more likely to suffer a heart attack or stroke. Plus, they had a whopping 48% higher risk of developing CANCER compared to those who took a TNF inhibitor – an older, more established RA drug treatment.
The news around tofacitinib has required the drugs to now be clearly labeled with these increased warnings… and even prompted the FDA to advise doctors to prescribe JAK inhibitors only after a patient has tried and failed at least one TNF inhibitor.

This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
Are we literally FEEDING cancer cells by putting this one food on our dinner plates?
This is important. THIS one food could be growing cancer cells.
And here’s where it gets interesting… as soon as we STOP eating it, the opposite happens: cancer cells STARVE to death — and die out by the thousands.
Skeptical? See the evidence here.
Ok, so those are the latest findings on tofacitinib. But what does this all mean for you?
If you have RA, and have been prescribed tofacitinib, it’s time to have a frank conversation with your doctor – especially around these dangerous side effects – about whether tofacitinib is really the best treatment for your RA.
It may also be time for you to talk with your doctor about a natural treatment for the inflammation that triggers RA.
For instance, there’s borage seed oil – an annual herb and flowering plant native to the Mediterranean that contains an omega-6 fatty acid called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is a known anti-inflammatory that helps regulate your immune system.
According to studies, your body converts GLA into a type of hormone known as a prostaglandin. Prostaglandins are responsible for controlling inflammation. The body usually releases prostaglandins when tissue becomes damaged, such as through an injury.
But in autoimmune conditions like as RA, your body remains in a chronic state of inflammation. Luckily, researchers have found that the GLA in borage seed oil can counteract this and reduce the symptoms associated with RA.
In other words, borage seed oil could help your body better regulate inflammation (naturally) and sink the nasty symptoms of RA.
Borage seed oil is available at most health food stores as a dietary supplement, often in the form of a soft gel capsule.
As with any supplement, be sure to only take the recommended dosage on the product label.
