    ‘No evidence’ high cholesterol causes heart disease, say doctors

    There is no evidence that high levels of total cholesterol or of “bad” cholesterol cause heart disease, according to a new paper by 17 international physicians based on a review of patient data of almost 1.3 million people.The authors also say their review shows the use of statins – cholesterol lowering drugs – is “of doubtful benefit” when used as primary prevention of cardiovascular disease.


    The authors include Galway-based Prof Sherif Sultan, professor of the International Society for Vascular Surgery; Scottish-based Dr Malcolm Kendrick, author of The Great Cholesterol Con; and Dr David M Diamond, a US-based neuroscientist and cardiovascular disease researcher.Prof Sultan said millions of people all over the world, including many with no history of heart disease, are taking statins “despite unproven benefits and serious side effects”.

    I was using a statin for a few months last year november till maybe mid feb.. (I know,, I know) but it wound up giving me such bad tendonitis in my left elbow I had to stop.

    My doctor thinks Im crazy but Ill correct my cholesterol through proper diet and exercise.. never had a cholesterol problem in my life but i can only surmise that after going thru chemo and radiation my body was severely malnourished which caused the elevated cholesterol...

    CHOLESTEROL AND CANCER
    Cancer has many causes including a poor functioning immune system. Ideally, the cells of the immune system would destroy cancerous cells before they could proliferate and metastasize. When it comes to total cholesterol, multiple studies have found that the higher the cholesterol, the lower your risk of infectious disease. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2809530/). If the immune system is working to prevent infection, it is working to prevent cancer. The following data demonstrates that higher cholesterol confers a lower risk of cancer.

    Prostate
    Patients undergoing radiation and prostatectomy fare better with higher levels of LDL. Those with the highest LDL had a 33% less cancer recurrence compared to those with the lowest LDL levels. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28093792

    Lung
    A recent study found those with lung cancer and the highest cholesterol levels had a 67% lower risk of dying. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28006834)

    Breast
    Women with the highest cholesterol levels had the lowest risk of breast cancer. In fact, the number was 30% lower. The same study found women had a 39% lower risk of melanoma and a 39% lower risk of lymphoma/leukemia when their cholesterol levels were the highest. (http://journals.plos.org/plosone/art...l.pone.0054242)

    Pancreas
    Men with the highest cholesterol had a 48% lower risk of pancreatic cancer along with a 33% lower risk of non-melanoma skin cancer, 86% lower risk of liver/gall bladder cancer, and a 32% lower risk of lymphoma and leukemia. (http://journals.plos.org/plosone/art...l.pone.0054242)

    Colorectal
    Studies suggest that those with higher cholesterol levels are protected from colorectal cancer versus those with lower levels. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9840100)

    I am pretty sure there are scam artists and frauds in Big pHARMa--just like there are in any BIG corporation. The problem is, Big pHARMa scams and frauds hurt, maim and kill people and are constantly protected by government agencies that have proven their illegitimacy.

    Well, I think the Doctors themselves are flat out $#@!ing crazy for falling for the well crafted propaganda to trick them into prescribing drugs to solve everything. The drug companies make huge contributions and payoffs and kickbacks to the Docs, as well as education just so they can get a say so in what Student Doctors are taught.

    Are you depressed? Yeah, its not the fact youre broke and society is $#@!ing retarded, it must be a chemical imbalance! Um, maybe the chemical imbalance is CAUSED by the $#@!ing retarded society and being flat broke! So whats their solution? Take MORE money from you and put you on a healthy diet of pills!

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.
