The Problem Isn’t Cholesterol … It’s the WRONG KIND – and OXIDATION – of Cholesterol

Cholesterol Itself Isn’t the Problem

While doctors have assumed for decades that high cholesterol causes heart disease and other health problems – and that lowering cholesterol is the way to fight disease – they have apparently missed the boat.

For example, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a study in 1987 finding no no correlation between cholesterol levels and mortality in people over 50. The study also found that falling cholesterol levels can sometimes lead to increased mortality. A large government study found that raising levels of HDL “good” cholesterol using a drug did not reduce the risk of heart disease. The Journal of Cardiac Failure reported that low serum total cholesterol is associated with marked increase in mortality in advanced heart failure. Similarly, the Journal Lancet reported that reductions in the cholesterol level of the elderly increased mortality. Other studies have reached the same conclusion.

It is also important to have a reality check: cholesterol is actually a vital precursor to vitamin’D, and to basic hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, and adrenaline. If we don’t have enough cholesterol in our body, we will be sickly, impotent and depressed.

Despite the foregoing, mainstream doctors are pushing cholesterol-lowering drugs called “statins” like they were candy … and some are even pushing to add it to the public water supply. As Paul Joseph Watson notes:

Drug companies claim that statins have been proven to lower cholesterol and help prevent heart disease and strokes, leading many health experts to insist that they be artificially added to public water supplies, but dangerous side-effects buried by drug companies conducting statin trials have now come to light, in addition to the fact that for three quarters of those taking them, they offer little or no value.

A new study published in the Cochrane Library, which reviews drug trials, examined data from 14 drugs trials involving 34,000 patients and found evidence of short-term memory loss, depression and mood swings, that had been deliberately underplayed by the drug companies funding the research.

The researchers warn that, Statins should only be prescribed to those with heart disease, or who have suffered the condition in the past. Researchers warn that unless a patient is at high risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke, statins may cause more harm than good.

However, despite the fact that statins have also been linked to a greater risk of liver dysfunction, acute kidney failure, cataracts and muscle damage, health authorities have been pushing for the drug to be added to public water supplies as part of a mass medication program that is not only illegal without consent, but also threatens a plethora of unknown consequences.

Only last week, George Lundberg, MD, the editor of MedPageToday…, wrote an op-ed entitled, Should We Put Statins in the Water Supply?

In May 2008, renowned cardiologist Professor Mahendra Varma called for statins to be artificially added to drinking water.

Putting statins in the water supply was also considered during a November 2008 discussion which featured Robert Bonow, M.D., of Northwestern University in Chicago, Gordon F. Tomaselli, M.D., of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, and Anthony’De Maria, M.D., of the University of California at San Diego.

Also in November 2008, CNBC aired a segment lauding the effectiveness of statins, after which one of the hosts remarked, Why don’t they just put statins in the water supply, to which CNBC‘s medical expert replied, A lot of people have said that and they are in the water in fact.

Small Molecules Are the Problem

If cholesterol itself isn’t the problem, what is?

Ron Rosedale, M.D., says that the problem isn’t cholesterol, (LDL or HDL), but small-sized cholesterol particles and oxidation of cholesterol:

As CBS News reports today:

A recent study supports the idea that excess consumption of high fructose corn syrup is linked to an increase in risk factors for heart disease by increasing a type of cholesterol that can clog arteries. The University of California, Davis, study also indicated that calories from added sugars are different than those from other foods. Subjects had 25 percent of their caloric intake replaced with sweetened drinks. Nutritional biologist Kimber Stanhope was surprised to see that after only two weeks, “We found that the subjects who consumed high fructose corn syrup had increased levels of LDL cholesterol and other risk factors for cardiovascular disease,” she tells Gupta. “I started eating and drinking a whole lot less sugar.”

What happens says Stanhope, is the liver gets overloaded with fructose and converts come of it into fat, which gets into the bloodstream to create “small dense LDL,” the kind of LDL that forms plaque in arteries. The irony here is that for precisely that reason – avoiding heart disease – a government commission in the 1970s mandated that we lower our fat consumption. “When you take the fat out of food, it tastes like cardboard,” says’Dr. Lustig. “And the food industry knew that, so they replaced it with sugar…and guess what? Heart disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes and death are skyrocketing,” he tells Gupta.

Similarly, the Harvard School of Public Health notes:

One problem with a generic lower fat diet is that it prompts most people to stop eating fats that are good for the heart along with those that are bad for it. Another problem is that when people cut back on fat, they often switch to foods full of easily digested carbohydrates “white bread, white rice, potatoes, sugary drinks, and the like “or to fat-free products that replace healthful fats with sugar and refined carbohydrates. The body digests these carbohydrates very quickly, causing blood sugar and insulin levels to spike. Over time, eating lots of fast carbs can raise the risk of heart disease and diabetes as much as “or more than “eating too much saturated fat. That’s why it’s important to replace foods high in bad fats with foods high in good fats “not with refined carbohydrates.

Eating less sugar and refined carbs helps to reduce formation of small-molecule types of cholesterol.

In addition, cinnamon may help stabilize blood sugar levels. For people with certain types of diabetes, it may reduce serum glucose, triglyceride, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol. See this and this. The resveratrol in red wine also helps stabilize blood sugar levels.

As the Harvard School of Public Health notes – contrary to medical dogma – fats are not bad … they are essential for maintaining a health cholesterol level and good health. We just have to eat more good fats. See this and this.

As the Mayo Clinic notes, trans fats increase bad cholesterol. But Omega 3s, olive oil, and other healthy fats reduce cholesterol … and are essential for good health.

The Mayo clinic notes that a handful of raw nuts a day helps lower cholesterol. Harvard found that walnuts are especially helpful in reducing cholesterol.

High-fiber foods also help reduce cholesterol.

Oxidation

The other main problem is the oxidation of cholesterol. Oxidation of the cholesterol in our bodies creates damaging compounds, in the same way that oxidized fats become rancid and unhealthy. See this, this and this (more here).

Increasing the amount of antioxidants in our diet helps to protect against damage from oxidized cholesterol. Antioxidants are – by definition – compounds which prevent oxidation.

Dr. Andrew Weil notes:

The antioxidants in green tea help lower cholesterol and prevent the cholesterol in your blood from oxidizing.

***

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that has been shown to be beneficial for heart health by protecting LDL cholesterol from oxidation and by’re-energizing the mitochondria in the heart cells, which is where energy metabolism occurs.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
