Good Cholesterol … They Got It All Wrong!
In the eighties you were told to lower your overall cholesterol.
The study presented at the American Urological Association 2017 annual meeting and has also been published in the Journal of Urology casts major doubt on raising (HDL) good cholesterol by showing that high HDL can cause prostate cancer.
They examined 4,904 men over a period of four years, requiring them to undergo cholesterol tests and prostate cancer biopsies. These men were taking no medication for their cholesterol.
Every 10 mg/dl (milligrams per deciliter) of extra total (LDL + HDL) cholesterol was associated with a 23 percent greater risk of developing high-grade prostate cancer. This is the type that is serious and may spread fast.
In addition, every 10 mg/dl of extra (HDL) good cholesterol was associated with a 74 percent greater risk of high-grade prostate cancer and a 34 percent greater chance of prostate cancer of any grade.
So, what on earth has gone wrong here? Isn’t HDL cholesterol supposed to be good, removing the bad cholesterol from your bloodstream to be excreted?
In 2014, the BMJ published a large scientific literature review with 117,411 patients across 39 previously conducted studies who were taking drugs to increase their HDL.
While their HDL increased, it did not reduce their risk of suffering a stroke or heart attack, or dying of coronary heart disease, or actually dying of any other cause.
That is, increasing (HDL) good cholesterol is useless for improving your heart health and health in general.
So, what must you do to lower your cholesterol without increasing your HDL and collecting a bout of prostate cancer?
What this (and most studies) was missing is that they didn’t take into account the third type of cholesterol. The one that is the real cause of plaque buildup in your arteries, stroke and heart attack.
In fact, it’s been proven that this is the ONLY type of cholesterol that builds up in your arteries. And you can completely remove it by cutting out just ONE ingredient. Anyways, that’s a subject of another article found here…
This post is from the Oxidized Cholesterol Strategy Program created by Scott Davis. He once suffered from High Cholesterol so much that he even had a severe heart attack. This is what essentially led him to finding healthier alternatives to conventional medication.
The program is highly focused on eliminating one simple ingredient you consume every single day, an ingredient you had no idea you were even putting it your body. What’s scary is that this ingredient isn’t even listed on the label of many common food choices. It’s terrifying stuff! So, this system starts you off with valuable information about this one simple ingredient, what it’s doing to your body and what you can do about it. But it doesn’t end there.
The Oxidized Cholesterol Strategy goes on to teach you a wide range of diet, fitness, lifestyle, exercise, sleep and eating tips that will help you maximize your results. More importantly, these tips will help completely clean out any plaque build-up in your arteries.
