Heart Disease = High Cholesterol Just A Myth
Thank you, Dr. Jon Bowden for some of the information in this video and on this page. Thanks again Andrew Cheika for the suggestion. In coming up with this video, I found out some things that I didn’t know were true. That’s the reason I love this stuff…there is always something new to learn.
This is going to be short and sweet, so don’t blink or you might miss this…
Most of us believe high cholesterol = heart disease. Nothing could be further from the truth. We now know that high cholesterol leads to INCREASED survival rates, while using government-issue, prescribed, blood-pressure-lowering medication in the United States leads to INCREASED death rates! Scary to think the very medication we use to help blood pressure are the very ones that will kill us. Good sh*t.
Here is some information about other countries and there cholesterol standing in the world. The US is 83rd in the world in overall health. That should tell you something. (EurekAlert: http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2011-02/l-cbc020111.php)
- Western European countries like Greenland, Iceland, Andorra, and Germany have the highest cholesterol levels in the world, with mean serum total cholesterols of around 5.5 mmol/L. African countries have the lowest cholesterol, some as low as 4 mmol/L.
- Among western high-income countries, Greece has the lowest cholesterol for both men and women (below 5 mmol/L). USA, Canada, and Sweden also had low cholesterol.
- The UK’s cholesterol is ninth highest in the world, slightly below 5.5 mmol/L. However UK men and women have both shown one of the largest drops in cholesterol in all high-income countries, from 6.2 mmol/L to 5.4 mmol/L.
- Uniquely among high-income countries, Japan has seen its average cholesterol in men and women rise from a low starting point in 1980 to the levels seen in Western Europe in 2008. Singapore saw cholesterol drop from 1980 to 2000 then rise substantially. China also saw increases in cholesterol though its figures remain low in global terms. The patterns in Japan, China and Singapore are likely to be at least partly due to changes in diet, including increasing intake of animal products and fats.
Well…the obvious question is, “What makes the cholesterol of these countries go up and down?” That’s an easy one. The proliferation of artery-clogging, greasy, mediocre-tasting food has become the “norm” for most places in the world. Some countries are smart enough to bar these “cholesterol jackers” from there shores, but most of the world is obsessed with TASTE instead of HEALTH. To put it plainly, native diets produce low cholesterol levels while industrialized, “advanced”, global fast food produces sky-high cholesterol levels.
1. High cholesterol is not bad. It’s almost impossible to have too much cholesterol. If you ask your doctor though, he’ll always tell you it’s high because he or she is comparing you to their handy-dandy chart, which says your cholesterol is high. Our cell membranes are made of cholesterol and our receptors move because of it. Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face. (Whatever the f*ck that means…LOL)
2. Treating cholesterol with a pill will EYL early. If you like living on this Earth, don’t do things that will shorten your life, like bungee-jumping off a low bridge, swimming in frigid, Arctic waters nude, taking prescription medications that slow or completely stop metabolic processes. A few are Lipitor, Crestor, Zocor, Vytorin, Simcor. By the way, “EYL” stands for “end your life”.
3. Sugar + Protein = Sticky Fatty Plaques. High cholesterol is only a problem IF it’s combined with molecules which allow it to adhere to arterial walls. Then and only then do we start having problems. However, high cholesterol is not a problem in itself.
4. Fat cells containing poison cause inflammation. Inflammatory cytokines are released from fat cells when they have to stores poisons we intake. That inflammation causes physical stress on our cells, thus, leading heart disease and congestive heart failure. Some of the sources of these poisons are our Western diet, vaccines, medications, and polluted air.
