Statin scam & Great Cholesterol myth

Statin scam & Great Cholesterol myth

People with higher cholesterol levels live longer than people with lower cholesterol levels.

Read that again, slowly, and no, it is not a typo.

The reason this fact is not well-known in the general public is because it would put a huge dent into a $100 BILLION drug market for statin drugs – drugs that lower your cholesterol. With approximately one out every four Americans over the age of 50 currently prescribed a statin drug, a drug with very serious side effects, this is certainly one issue you should investigate yourself. Please don’t take my word on it, nor anybody else’s.

What the Research Says Concerning Cholesterol Levels and Mortality Rates

This is but a sampling of the research on the fact that low cholesterol is dangerous while high cholesterol is beneficial.

Study: Low total cholesterol is associated with high total mortality in patients with coronary heart disease, European Heart Journal, January 1997

Quote:

The relative risk of non-cardiac death was 2.27 times higher in the low cholesterol group than in the controls (95% CI: 1.49-3.45), whereas the risk of cardiac death was the same in both groups relative risk 1.09; 95% CI: 0.76-1.56). The most frequent cause of non-cardiac death associated with low total cholesterol was cancer. These results in patients with coronary heart disease add weight to previous studies associating low total cholesterol with an increased risk of non-cardiac death.

Study: Low Serum Cholesterol and Mortality, American Heart Association, June 1994

Quote:

Falling TC (total cholesterol) level was accompanied by a subsequent increased risk of death caused by some cancers (hemopoietic, esophageal, and prostate), noncardiovascular, noncancer causes (particularly liver disease), and all causes. The risk-factor–adjusted rate of all-cause mortality was 30% higher (relative risk, 1.30; 95% CI, 1.06 to 1.59) among persons with a decline from middle (180 to 239 mg/dL) to low (<180 mg/dL) TC than in persons remaining at a stable middle level.

Comment: The American Heart Association has known since at least 1994 that low cholesterol is associated with an increased risk of death. Of course, they theorize that the diseases the people died from caused the low cholesterol – something this study did not prove (because it cannot – it can only show associations or links). But the AHA does not deny that low cholesterol is associated with increased death.

Is having very low cholesterol levels hazardous to health? There is evidence to suggest that it might be.

You don’t have to buy the book by  Dr Uffe Ravskov, but he goes to illustrate without a doubt how the whole issue about cholesterol is nothing but a scam. We alluded to the nonsense behind the cholesterol hysteria in the past. In fact,  everyone at TI, including yours truly consumes large amounts of eggs, large amounts of butter, coconut oil, full-fat milk, etc. and none of us has even come close to having a heart attack. My grandfather who had high cholesterol lived to 93, my great Grandfather, who also had high cholesterol missed 100 by a few months, he died at 99.6.  We know two ladies that are alive, one is 93 her cholesterol would make most doctors yell and the second one is almost 99, and she too has rather high cholesterol.  The book does make for a good read.  The medical and the nutritional community are out to get you.  They are part of the same deck.  Do not believe all supplements are good and even the ones that are good, are usually loaded with allergenic agent. In many cases, a good supplement is rendered useless by the additives the manufacturer adds.  If you want a good supplement, make sure it has no junk in it.

Want to find the best source of supplements then this site lists where you can buy the supplements you seek with little to no junk in them. http://www.toxinless.com/.  For example, we have seen VIT D supplements that have Sunflower, safflower or in some cases Rapeseed oil, which is the worst out there (also known as Canola), all these oils have one thing in common, they turn rancid very fast. Hence a quality supplement is turned into garbage. Thorne Research makes a good Vitamin D supplement that has nothing bad in it.

 In terms of cooking Coconut is the best oil one can use, second would be butter and third would be Palm oil.  For salads, pure olive oil is good, but never cook with it, as it has a very low boiling point and burns and any value it might have had is lost.  Do your research and google the dangers of polyunsaturated fats, which by the way is what all seed based oils are.
