Remove ALL Cholesterol Build-Up in Your Arteries – This Pet Corrects Cholesterol (that one doesn’t)
Several studies throughout the decades have proven that pets can improve stress levels and overall well-being.
But can pets improve cholesterol levels?
Yes, but only this one type of pet, says a new study published in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings: “Innovations, Quality & Outcomes”.
The authors wanted to answer two questions: firstly, whether pet ownership, in general, could improve our cardiovascular health and, secondly, whether dog ownership, compared to the ownership of other pets, could improve our heart health.
To investigate this, they consulted data collected by the Kardiovize Brno 2030 study.
This study first collected the health and socioeconomic information of more than 2,000 people in the city of Brno, Czech Republic in 2013. It is meant to run through several follow-up visits until 2030.
Using the information from the 2018-2019 follow-up visit, the researchers examined the information of 1,769 of the subjects and rated them on the American Heart Association’s Life’s Simple 7. These include body mass index, diet, physical activity, smoking status, blood pressure, blood glucose, and total cholesterol.
They also interviewed all these participants and asked them about their pet ownership status.
When comparing pet owners with non-owners, it initially seemed like pet owners had superior cardiovascular health, specifically with better diets, more physical activity, lower blood sugar, and higher HDL cholesterol.
But after running the numbers through the appropriate statistical measures, the researchers could not conclude that it was the pet ownership that caused better heart health, as education level and age seemed to have as big an effect on both owners and non-owners as pet ownership had.
They then compared dog owners with people who owned no pets and with people who owned a pet other than a dog; here, education and age did not interfere with the results.
Dog owners were more likely to engage in physical exercise and to eat healthy diets. They were also more likely to have a lower waist circumference and a higher HDL cholesterol score.
Therefore, pet ownership, in general, may not be heart-healthier than non-pet ownership, but dog ownership is certainly healthier.
Remove ALL Cholesterol Build-Up in Your Arteries – How Our High Cholesterol Hurts Others
And we know that those who love us are going to be devastated if we suffer these serious events.
But, according to a new study published in The Condor, there is an unexpected, completely innocent, little thing that may be harmed even more by our high-cholesterol lifestyles.
And the results could be disastrous!
Because of a relative lack of trees and foliage in our cities, city dwellers attract birds by placing food in bird feeders. Larger birds also raid our trashcans and dumpsters to survive.
This led scientists to wonder whether our throwaway food is actually good for birds, and a team led by Hamilton College researchers set out to find out.
They tested the cholesterol of 140 crow nestlings in and around Davis in California, in various areas, which ranged from rural to urban. They found that urban crow-chicks had higher cholesterol than their rural cousins.
To discover whether this was due to the processed and fatty food that humans dump and throw out for them, the researchers left McDonald’s cheeseburgers near crow nests in rural New York.
When they tested the cholesterol of these crows, they found that those who had fed on the burgers had higher cholesterol than those who had fed on natural food sources.
This, of course, doesn’t just reveal crow health. This shows how the normal junk diet most people consume directly leads to high cholesterol in humans as well as animals.
And this is, of course, why so many people nowadays are dying from strokes and heart attacks.
Remove ALL Cholesterol Build-Up in Your Arteries – Third Type Cholesterol (deadliest of them all)
But a new study in the journal Atherosclerosis reveals that health-wise, this is a short-sighted way of looking at it.
There’s a third type of cholesterol that you really need to pay attention to because it’s just as bad as the bad stuff you already know about.
Cholesterol travels around the body in your blood, in packages called lipoproteins. We usually talk about two types, called:
- LDL cholesterol. This is transported in low-density lipoprotein packages and is often called ‘bad’ cholesterol because it causes cardiovascular disease.
- HDL cholesterol. This circulates in high-density lipoprotein packages and is often called ‘good’ cholesterol because it transports bad cholesterol to your liver, which breaks it down for excretion.
But now there’s a third category (well, it’s actually been known about for a long time).
- Remnant cholesterol. This is transported in triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (or fat particles if this lipoprotein stuff is too much of a mouthful for you). It’s another bad type of cholesterol because it causes cardiovascular disease too.
Up to now, scientists have ignored remnant cholesterol too much, because they thought there wasn’t all that much of it flowing in our bloodstreams. However, the new study has made them think again.
The authors looked at medical information from 9,293 participants in the Copenhagen General Population Study. This is a survey of 140,000 people who receive free health checks, investigating the causes of good and bad health.
They used a new and advanced measuring tool called metabolomics to check the cholesterol levels of their subsample.
Remnant cholesterol levels were the same as LDL levels, which means there was twice the amount of bad stuff as they were expecting.
Previous research has shown that remnant cholesterol is a serious risk for heart attack and stroke, so we need to keep our remnant cholesterol levels as low as possible.

So how do you keep LDL and Remnant cholesterol at bay? There’s a simple way to remove ALL cholesterol build-up in your arteries, just cut out this ONE ingredient, you didn’t even know you were consuming…
This post is from the Oxidized Cholesterol Strategy Program. It was created by Scott Davis. Because he once suffered from high cholesterol, so much so that he even had a severe heart attack. This is what essentially led him to finding healthier alternatives to conventional medication. Oxidized Cholesterol Strategy is a unique online program that provides you with all the information you need to regain control of your cholesterol levels and health, as a whole.
