Heart Disease And The Cholesterol Myth

More support for alternative medical theories and practice.
Another advocate for wariness regarding elevated cholesterol levels requiring statins or any other treatment.
Another article providing support for the importance of mainstream practitioners to access all relevant information and carefully filter the misinformation.

Ironically cholesterol drugs actually increase risk of heart attacks. Researchers in Hull, UK followed 114 heart failure patients who began taking cholesterol lowering drugs.(6)

“They found that for every point of decrease in serum cholesterol, there was a 36% increase in the risk of death within three years.”(7)

  1. Thanks for the reblog! There is certainly plenty of reason to be weary of modern medical practices, driven more by pharmaceutical reps than by scientific evidence. Your body is designed to heal itself. It needs no help, only no interference.

    • Hi Brent. Many thanks for your response and ‘follow’.
      Comments from a professional are extremely valuable as my interpretations and opinions are not related to medical expertise, just to what I would term ‘logic’.
      Please feel welcome here at any time. Contributions will be greatly appreciated, even criticisms where due.
      Regards, Ken.
