How do you get high cholesterol?

Here’s the short answer:

NOT from eating eggs and good fats!

If you are worries about your cholesterol,

then investigate these issues:

  1. Vegetable oils in your diet are damaging and may clog arteries.

  2. Statin drugs can lead to heart disease and many other side effects.

  3. Gallbladder, liver and thyroid issues may be the underlying cause of abnormal cholesterol.

  4. DNA mutations may affect raise LDL and lower HDL cholesterol (this is opposite of what you want).

Here’s what you need to know!

  1. Consuming cholesterol does not harm you or raise your blood cholesterol levels.

  2. You need cholesterol to make hormones and feed your brain.

  3. Your body produces 3 times more cholesterol than you eat.

  4. Low cholesterol may impair memory and increase mortality risk.

“One recent study performed by the American Medical Association and published in the _Archives of Internal Medicine_ in January 2012 demonstrated an astounding 48 percent increased risk of diabetes among women taking statin medications.

“Nothing could be further from the truth than the myth that if we lower our cholesterol levels we might have a greater chance of living longer and healthier lives. In a medical journal the Lancet, researchers from the Netherlands studied 724 elderly individuals whose average age was eighty-nine years, and followed them for ten years. What they found was truly extraordinary. During the study, 642 participants died. Each thirty-nine-point increase in total cholesterol corresponded to a 15 percent decrease in mortality risk. In the study, there was absolutely no difference in the risk of dying from coronary artery disease between the high- versus low-cholesterol groups, which is incredible when you consider the number of elderly folks who are taking powerful cholesterol-lowering drugs.

Other common causes of death in the elderly were found to be dramatically associated with lower cholesterol. The authors reported: ‘Mortality from cancer and infection was significantly lower among the participants in the highest total cholesterol category than in the other categories, which largely explains the lower all-cause mortality in this category.’ In other words, people with the highest total cholesterol were less likely to die from cancer and infections — common fatal illnesses in older folks — than those with the lowest cholesterol levels. In fact, when you compare the lowest- and highest-cholesterol groups, the risk of dying during the study was reduced by a breathtaking 48 percent in those who had the highest cholesterol. High cholesterol can extend longevity.― David Perlmutter, M.D., Grain Brain”
