Should we be worried about our cholesterol levels? Is cholesterol good or bad for our health?
We have been told and severely misled regarding the nutritional value of fats overall and the health benefits of cholesterol. I believe that cholesterol is the principal ingredient used by our body's chemistry to produce many of our hormones and the production of Vitamin D3.
We cannot live without a healthy production of cholesterol, and it is required to maintain a healthy heart and entire cardiovascular function. Yes, true, more people die from heart attacks and suffer from heart disease that have low cholesterol than those with high cholesterol. We could never eat enough food containing cholesterol to meet our body's requirement. There is a very special enzyme in our liver that produces the amount of cholesterol that our bodies require. It is what maintains a male and female healthy hormone function, plus the chemistry of the brain. I believe from all I have researched that there is a connection between low cholesterol and Alzheimer’s Disease. The brain is only 2% of the entire body weight but uses 25% of the cholesterol produced by the body. Since statin drugs have been prescribed to lower cholesterol, there has been a huge increase of dementia.
What do the experts say? The World Health Organization recommends a cholesterol level between 220-240. There are thousands of clinical and research studies that have proven that we will live a better quality of life and live longer with a high level of cholesterol than a low level.
We haven’t even discussed the serious side effects of using cholesterol lowering drugs, like pain, muscle loss, and loss of memory.
The bottom line is, that overall, it is better to have a higher level of this critical healthy nutrient than trying to lower it. There is no benefit to having a low level of cholesterol.
This is the greatest scam in medical history, but no drug company wants to admit their mistake and turn down the billions of dollars these drugs generate annually.
