Are Cholesterol Medications a Scam?
The lower your cholesterol, the better?
Taking a cholesterol-lowering pill is not a cure for heart attacks and strokes, because cholesterol is not the culprit; But taking a long-term cholesterol-lowering drug will only make patients more likely to suffer from diseases such as unintentional fatigue, muscle aches, angina, heart attacks, stroke, heart failure, liver failure, renal failure, arrhythmia, brain degeneration, memory loss, cancer, depression, irritability, cataracts, impotence, early aging, etc., which eventually will make patients to take more drugs to treat these diseases.
If you’re taking a cholesterol lowering pill that doesn’t yet have the above-mentioned health issues, please don’t be complacent yet, because the side effects of these cholesterol-lowering pill will follow as time progresses, causing you to become so sick.
Over the past few decades, drug manufacturers has successfully convinced the general public that cholesterol is toxic and harmful to human health, leading tens of millions around the world with slightly higher cholesterol to take cholesterol-lowering drugs. Even people with normal cholesterol are scare of having high cholesterol food; and prefer the choice of low cholesterol good. Cholesterol-lowering drugs are already one of the best-selling drugs in the world.
To continuously increase profits, the manufacturers who produce cholesterol drugs could have been creating an illusion that “the lower cholesterol it is, the better it is. And now, they even have a plot to recommend that “children also need cholesterol-lowering drugs.”
Although a lie can be transformed into truth once it is repeated 100 times, however; truth is always true, and the the truth will finally be unveiled. So, let’s get ready, and uncover the truth together.
Does cholesterol appears on the artery’s endothelium?
Wrong! “It’s a lie that LDL cholesterol is sticking on to the artery inner surface like waste is stuck to the wall of the drainage pipe, causing artery congestion, heart attacks and strokes!” It’s the excuse that the drug makers use to create a cholesterol scam. Readers in this column should be aware that LDL cholesterol would only stick behind the artery’s endothelium.
In fact, cholesterol, including LDL cholesterol and HDL cholesterol, cannot be stick to the surface of a healthy artery endothelium, because blood contains a large quantity of antioxidants that protect them from oxidation. Only LDL cholesterol crossing the artery surface (and stick behind the endothelium) through a damaged arterial endothelium can be oxidized.
High cholesterol is the cause of a heart attack?
Wrong! High cholesterol only plays a red light, warning that our arteries have been damaged and must be repaired as soon as possible. But doctors only prescribe cholesterol-lowering drugs to help people to reduce the cholesterol counting, leaving their damaged arteries untreated.
That’s why taking cholesterol-lowering pills doesn’t prevent heart attacks and strokes. Moreover, the main cause of heart attacks is the rupture of the arterial endothelium on the atherosclerotic plaque, which in this case leads to blockage. Therefore, the prevention of heart attacks must start with the preventing arterial endothelium damages and being ruptured .
Damage to the artery’s endothelium may be caused by bacteria hidden in the periodontal, gut and artery, or by a lack of nutrients and trans fats in food. But the main culprits of the artery’s endothelium damages are compounds that have long accumulated in the body, such as pesticides, phthalates, Telfon, plasticizers, flame retardants, prescription drugs, and toxic metals from the air, water, soil and food chains, such as arsenic, lead, mercury, cadmium; Because these substances would catalyze the proliferation of free radicals, causing damage to the arterial endothelium.
High cholesterol is just a “messenger” that signalling artery’s endothelium is being damaged, it is definitely not the culprit. Taking a cholesterol-lowering pill is like “killing a messenger”, and getting the real culprits off the hook.
High cholesterol means high risk?
Wrong! Most people were misled into thinking that high cholesterol was a risk indicator for heart attacks. In fact, more than half of the heart attack victims had normal cholesterol. So cholesterol is not linked to heart disease.
That’s why people who take cholesterol-lowering drugs would also have heart attacks and strokes. Homocysteine, high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) and fibriogen are the most important risk indicators. People with high levels of homocysteine are four times more likely to have a heart attack than people with high levels of cholesterol. So lowering homocysteine very important! but why don’t ordinary doctors test patients for homocysteine? Because there is no medication to lower homocysteine, it can only be reduced by appropriate nutrients.
For doctors who don’t know and don’t agree with supplemental nutrients, testing homocysteine would be irrelevant. Ignoring such a high-risk indicator is arguably irresponsible for patients, since homocysteine is already considered a high-risk indicator of heart attacks, strokes, macular lesions, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Although study has shown that intaking appropriate type and amount of nutrients can help reduce homocysteine and atherosclerotic plaque, this fact has never been widely reported. From this, you can imagine – how strong the drug makers has influence on different things.
C-reactive protein is an indicator of the deterioration of atherosclerosis, but many patients, including those who underwent bypass surgery, have never been tested homocysteine, C-reactive protein, fibrinogen; however, they mostly were prescribed with ineffective and harmful cholesterol-lowering drugs and blood-thinning drugs for life.
Do not mis-judge cholesterol
Cholesterol is a sterol synthesized in human body by steroid and alcohol. Sterol is a lipid (lipid, medical name of fat). Cholesterol is a necessary component of the cell membrane surrounding each cell;It is also essential to surround every organelle in a cell, such as lipid membrane, granulocyte or nucleus. Cholesterol keeps “liquidity” of the cell and lipid membranes, regulating inflow and outflow of substance for cells and organelles. Without cholesterol, substances cannot enter and exit cells normally, leading to imbalances. If the imbalance persists, the cells will age, get sick, die, and the people will age, get sick, die. Thus, lacking cholesterol can have serious consequence.
And cholesterol drugs are precisely the cause of cholesterol deficiency among people taking drugs! Other functions of cholesterol include emulsifying, digesting and absorbing fat; Synthesis of steroid hormones such as sex hormones and adrenaline; production of Vitamin D requires the component of cholesterol and sunlight; It has antioxidant function and protects cell membrane and lipid membrane integrity.
Since 80% of cholesterol is produced in the liver, the body must produce enough cholesterol to keep the cells working, even if it does not eat cholesterol-containing foods.
Otherwise, the human body cannot survive. People with slightly higher cholesterol do not need long-term cholesterol medications, except for those with genetically extremely high cholesterol.
There is evidence that older people over the age of 70 have slightly higher cholesterol, have a healthier and longer lives than normal or slightly lower cholesterol.
