Is Cholesterol really bad for you??
I don’t have a degree in nutrition or health yet… but nether do doctors. What bothers me is that countless Americans go to and trust there doctors whole heartedly and (some) doctors just take the diagnose and adios approach, without even asking there patients what type of diet they follow. The diet is a major factor when it comes to health and one needs to be there own doctor before taking health advice from a doctor. Don’t get me wrong doctors are very smart and talented in what they do, but they are not properly trained in health and nutrition. Let me ask you a question, when was the last time you primary doctor asked you about your diet? Back to Cholesterol, as stated on Mercola.com website cholesterol plays a major roll in your bodies ability to “produce cell membranes, hormones, vitamin D, and bile acid”. When you take meds (statin drugs) that block cholesterol, all these processes that cholesterol aids in stop and other problems happen. Your liver produces cholesterol from your diet and the main culprits here are sugars, grains, and too high carbohydrates diets. So… any thing that converts into sugar you liver converts the access sugar into cholesterol and if you don’t have a sufficient amount of vitamin D to convert that cholesterol to testosterone, then you are left with high cholesterol. If you have high cholesterol you don’t need drugs to lower your cholesterol, you need to change your diet because drugs are only bandaids and don’t address the underline problem. So eat whole eggs and drink whole milk and ditch the oatmeal and pancakes in the morning.
