We’re into the 21st Century and it should be common knowledge that cholesterol is as important for our bodies as food. Cholesterol is required for our bodies to make Vitamin D, hormones and more. A value under 150 mg/dL is too low to be beneficial.
Cholesterol in food can only be responsible for 25% of the cholesterol in our blood. This means that if our cholesterol is 400, food can only be responsible for 100. Eating fake foods causes our cholesterol to go up to protect our arteries. So why do doctors tell us to avoid cholesterol in healthy foods?
There are at least 900 studies that show statins, along with deadly side effects, can cause: diabetes, increased cancer risk, muscle weakness, cognitive loss and sexual dysfunction.
If you’re looking for a natural fish oil, this is the one I take: Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil. It is rich in both Vitamin A and D.
Using cholesterol for assessing heart disease risk is useless. Ask your doctor about the risks involved with statins. Check out Dr. Mercola’s infographic below about cholesterol.
Learn the better indicator of heart disease risk than just your total cholesterol – plus the dangers of statins and the need to supplement with CoQ10 if you’re taking these cholesterol-lowering drugs – through our infographic “How to Make Sense of Your Cholesterol Levels.”
