You are misinformed never mind that one article regarding this was from 2008 and based on a Canadian study.

"We don't want people to misinterpret this study," said Dr. Lee A. Fleisher, chair of the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and author of an accompanying editorial in the journal. "The study did not say anybody who is on beta blockers should stop them."

As soon as I saw the words big pharma, your post lost some credibility.

From what I've read, Beta Blockers do not extend your life. This is borne out by a meta-analysis.
Here is one article:

And here's another:

Melanoma patients who took a specific type of beta blocker while receiving immunotherapy lived longer than patients who received immunotherapy alone, according to researchers.
