Hey! – Rob here
Your Daily Health Fix today is about …
The Cholesterol you NEED
Fact: cholesterol is necessary for all forms of life (plant and animal), and without it most biological systems would collapse.
2 Myths that refuse to die:
1) LDL is the bad cholesterol – in fact LDL is just important in the human body as the less demonised HDL. Without it we lose immune function, have poor synthesis of necessary hormones, suffer from poor conversion of body fat to useable energy and often see degraded nerves and poor cognitive function.
2) Lowering Cholesterol (LDL) will prevent heart disease and heart attacks – When actually, cholesterol levels are poorly correlated to the progression of heart disease and lowering them doesn’t (in most cases) prevent or improve the condition – but does in fact put you at risk of developing other chronic diseases.
Big Pharma and Big Food don’t want you (or your doctor) to know these truths as the actions you would take would take a cut out of their profits.
The best thing you can do – is to avoid all processed foods, sticking to a mainly meat based, low carbohydrate diet. If your doctor suggests cholesterol lowering medication, ask them to show you the randomised control trial data showing that the effect of the medication will actually result in an improvement in your health or reduced risk of disease compared with the occurrence of known negative side effects (hint: they won’t find the data – it doesn’t exist).
. . . That’s it for this dose,
Until the next time – Stay Motivated!💪🏼
