"Over 60 per cent of all heart attacks occur in people with normal cholesterol" 
Recently, during a health-chat, an old lady shared her understanding "80% of the cholesterol in my body is made by own body". I was happily surprised that she knew of this less-known general fact.
While the exact percentage varies somewhat from person to person, the truth is that even if one stops cholesterol intake totally, their body will still make them because of 2 reasons -
- It needs to produce all the so-called "good cholesterol"
- It has no other choice left but to produce so-called "bad cholesterol”
This need arises mainly due to the prevalent "healthy diet" mistakes concerning most of the foods we eat, including the "low / no cholesterol" bandwagon. These fatal errors are easily corrected by MicroVita SuperDiet.
So, by unnaturally curtailing your cholesterol consumption you are obstructing some of it’s enormously useful functions amongst your somatic microvita:
- The highest concentration of cholesterol is in your brain.
- Your cell-walls are water-proof due to cholesterol.
- Your steroid hormones - cortisol, aldosterone, progesterone, estrogens, testosterone and their derivatives – are synthesized by cholesterol.
- Your vitamin D is made from the cholesterol in your skin when it is exposed to sunlight.
- It makes your bile which helps to digest fats alongwith with vitamins A, D, E and K.
- It helps to converts carotene to vitamin A & absorption of minerals.
- Within your cells, cholesterol is a precursor molecule in several biochemical pathways like that of intracellular transport, cell signaling and nerve conduction.
- Cholesterol is deployed in the insulation membranes of your nerves.
Cholesterol is so widely used that all of your cells manufacture it; 3 to 4 times more than whatever you eat. Even if you don’t eat it much, your liver & other tissues will compensate for the shortfall by producing it.
So how come a -
- low HDL/LDL ratio is blamed for coronary heart diseases?
- high HDL/LDL ratio accompanies weight loss? 
First of all, does the correlation imply that your HDL/LDL ratio is the root cause? Or is it the other way round? When your diet & lifestyle -
- spoils your blood & it’s flow, it causes a low HDL/LDL ratio while pushing you towards a heart attack / stroke.
- reduces your weight, it results in a high HDL/LDL ratio in your arterial blood.
The main task of HDLs is to carry cholesterol from the peripheral tissues, including the artery walls, to the liver where it is recycled for other purposes.
Due to reasons we’ll visit in another post, overweight people are more susceptible to vascular damage & hence carry a higher risk of heart attack. Imbalanced HDL /LDL ratio is only a symptom of the deterioration.
In other words, the logic can also be reversed, as in, your health condition impacts your HDL/ LDL ratio & not the other way round. Let’s not put your cart before the bull.
As per scientific evidence, it is just a possible secondary risk marker at worst, not the primary cause of coronary artery disease (CAD), myocardial infarction, atherosclerosis, stroke & everything else it is accused of.
In fact, many studies have found that even people with LOW cholesterol have an increased risk of atherosclerosis, cardiovascular illness & several other diseases:
1. In the Framingham Heart Study of subjects over 50 years of age they found an 11% increase overall and 14% increase in CVD mortality per 1 mg/dL per year drop in total cholesterol levels.
2. In the Vorarlberg Health Monitoring and Promotion Programme, men of all ages and women over 50 with very low cholesterol were increasingly likely to die of cancer, liver diseases, and mental diseases (antisocial behavior, depression, suicide, etc.) .
3. As per the oxford journal  low levels of cholesterol were associated with 2.27 times higher risk of non-cardiac death.
4. Other studies also report increased death rate from different causes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s diseases, increased susceptibility to infections and other abnormalities when blood cholesterol was low.
5. Even people with low levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol & high HDL (good) cholesterol have suffered an increased occurrence of atherosclerosis & other cerebrovascular diseases 
On the other hand high cholesterol has worked out well for lot of people :
1. A study of elderly French women living in a nursing home showed that those with the highest cholesterol levels lived the longest (The Lancet, 4/22/89). The death rate was more than five times higher for women with very low cholesterol !
2. A 2009 study of patients with acute coronary syndromes found an association of hypercholesterolemia with lesser mortality.
3. Yale University researchers unearthed that old people with high cholesterol had half the number of deaths from heart attack as compared to their low-cholesterol peers .
4. Most of those with high cholesterol never suffer heart attacks at all .
The "bad cholesterol" never deposits on the walls of your blood vessels by itself. It is first eaten by another active entity, which does that job for reasons that make perfect sense to your biology's inner intelligence.
“There is no such a thing as bad cholesterol.” – F. Batmanghelidj, M.D.
Heart attack & heart disease are considered different medical conditions in allopathy.
With the misgivings about "high-cholesterol" foods aside, lets review 3 of the other "heart-healthy" interventions we have been harriedly led to make:
1. Besides faulty studies, another reason cholesterol has been maligned so far, & deliberately so, is to sell toxic cholesterol lowering statin drugs [11, 12].
“new cholesterol-lowering drugs, the statins, do prevent cardio-vascular disease, but this is due to other mechanisms than cholesterol-lowering.
Unfortunately, they also stimulate cancer in rodents, disturb the functions of the muscles, the heart and the brain and pregnant women taking statins may give birth to children with malformations.
Taking all experiments together, mortality from heart disease after treatment with these drugs was unchanged and total mortality increased, a fact that has given researchers outside the National Cholesterol Education Program and the American Heart Association much reason for concern.” 
In 2004, after the National Cholesterol Education Program called for sharply lowering the desired levels of "bad" cholesterol, it was revealed that eight of nine members of the panel writing the recommendations had financial ties to the makers of cholesterol-lowering drugs .
A recent health minister of a developed country had a heart attack. As expected, he is an allopath. He was, & is still on … statins. And suffered from one of the side-effects of statin drugs : heart failure, abnormal brain function, etc [12, 19].
Practically all mainstream medical research is commercially driven & there is no effective commercial reason to unearth & report the negative consequences of modern treatments.
Since pharma companies are big advertisers in public media – so the mainstream media also does not report that much. Hence if there is any business sense – it is to suppress the real repercussions of most mainstream treatments.
With this perspective in mind, a self-thinking person would read a lot more in whatever little of the negative consequences of mainstream “scientific” treatments does surface.
So what's the real source of injuries behind your ongoing hardening of your arteries due to the fatty-cholesterol-calcium deposits on them a.k.a. atherosclerosis & artherosclerosis respectively?
2. Is it high homocysteine levels as sometimes charged ? That is just 1 of the risk factors involved. Otherwise why do high homocysteine therapies fail to reverse cardiovascular damages ?
3. A review of the latest nutritional studies finds no conclusive evidence that fish oil supplements help people hoping to prevent another heart attack or stroke. It also remains unclear if fish oil provides cardiovascular benefits for healthy individuals .
Not surprising at all, because how can anyone expect a mishap caused by your entire diet & lifestyle to be undone by fingering with just 1 or 2 isolated chemicals?
By not addressing the root causes of plaque formation, but instead artificially preventing your liver from performing it’s natural self-defensive job of producing “bad cholesterol” due to those unaddressed “root causes”, aren’t anti-cholesterol drug gulpers setting off 2 separate biological domino effects in 2 different crucial parts of the body :
- along your circulatory system &
- in the single biggest & most multi-functional organ – your …?
< Not thy willy. Though it also suffers miserably, from the same pernicious fallout! >
”A lot of people think, ‘Hey, I’m on statins, I’m protected, I’ll have the Big Mac or the foie gras or the crème brûlée, And most doctors give up on lifestyle changes because it takes an investment of time from both patient and physician.
It’s easier to write a prescription for a statin.” – Dr. Eric Topol, Chairman, Cardiovascular department, Cleveland Clinic, Ohio. 
So are you also being mistreated for "high cholesterol"?
Want to diffuse these biological time-bombs before they detonate?
Luckily the best things in life are (next to) free. And these standard or natural substances cannot be patented. Few more reasons to start that timely transition in quick earnest :
So there is no business case for any pharmaceutical company to pay for their clinical trials – because, once the trials are successful, we all can get it directly from the garden, forest or farmland.
No need to buy them from a pharmacy.
With MicroVita SuperDiet & lifestyle + other unpatentable corrective actions & special processes, one can solve all the root causes of the problem.
