The cholesterol scam (cont'd...)

Why do they scam you? Because pharmaceutical manufacturers want to sell you their statin (cholesterol-reducing) drugs, and doctors want to sell you their coronary bypass surgeries. They want to make you sick, because the sicker you are, the more drugs and surgeries you buy, and the richer they become.

Fact: Heart disease keeps increasing, despite the fact that statins have been the most widely prescribed drugs in the history of medicine.

Lesson: Don't let doctors ruin your good health! They can easily harm you with their bad advice, harmful drugs and unnecessary surgeries.

The evidence

In sharp contrast to the misinformation published in the mainstream media, there is scientific proof published in, for example, the "Advances in Nutrition", where scientists prove that cholesterol and saturated fats (SFAs) actually improve health, and don't cause any heart disease. Keep reading. The abstract of that scientific proof is as follows:

The abstract

Although early studies showed that saturated fat diets with very low levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) increase serum cholesterol, whereas other studies showed high serum cholesterol increased the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD), the evidence of dietary saturated fats increasing CAD or causing premature death was weak.

Over the years, data revealed that dietary saturated fatty acids (SFAs) are not associated with CAD and other adverse health effects, or at worst are weakly associated in some analyses when other contributing factors may be overlooked.

Several recent analyses indicate that SFAs, particularly in dairy products and coconut oil, can improve health.

The evidence of omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) promoting inflammation and augmenting many diseases continues to grow, whereas omega-3 PUFAs seem to counter these adverse effects.

The replacement of saturated fats in the diet with carbohydrates, especially refined sugars, has resulted in increased obesity and it is associated health complications. ...More >>
