The Myth of Harmful Cholesterol
Discussions about the harm and benefits of cholesterolVery reminiscent of the torment of a gamlet from the series "to be or not to be." Can or can not? And if possible, in what quantities and how often? What, absolutely impossible? Even on holidays? Oh, these conjectures and guesses! They said the same: cholesterol - Is dangerous to health. And there should be no exceptions!
But if you dig deeper and make sure that the damage to cholesterol is in fact one of the greatest deceptions? What do you say to that, gentlemen of the jury?
The truth about cholesterol
- Oh, these scientists!
One of the famous scientists, a Viennese surgeon, removingAt experimental goats and sheep the thyroid gland, made a curious discovery. And also stunning: the animals have sharply increased their cholesterol levels! That is, herbivores, who have never tried cholesterol-containing animal food, developed atherosclerosis!
In other words, precisely Inadequate thyroid function, And not animal fats, is one of the main reasons for the development of atherosclerosis. After this discovery, in the 13th century, atherosclerosis was successfully treated with small doses of thyroid hormones.
- Mass genocide?
In the second half of the thirteenth century a theory appeared,Whose consequences are tantamount to the implementation of mass genocide. According to this theory, the cause of atherosclerosis is the use of cholesterol, which is contained in animal food. It is the egoism of the narrow-minded scientists and the greed of the pharmaceutical companies that gave rise to one of the greatest myths in the history of mankind that took the health and lives of many people.

Among the victims were even very rich and influential people, for example, the 34th president of the United States dwight eisenhaur. Immediately after the first myocardial infarction, doctors put him on a low-cholesterol diet.
However, the more restrictive the animal fats were, the moreHigher cholesterol levels, and with it the weight also increased. The result of improper treatment was sad: the president had several more heart attacks, which eventually led to death from a heart attack.

However, up to today no real evidence has been provided! Nevertheless, the general public was not informed about this, and Anticholesterol drugs Successfully keep the lead in sales in most of the world's pharmacies.

Many factors can affect the integrity of the arterial wall, for example, an elevated level of glucose and insulin in the blood. It is not surprising that half of people who underwent myocardial infarction had a normal cholesterol level. And vice versa, in people with low cholesterol, the death rate is twice as high.
- Some more evidence
The population of the northern part of India consumes 17 times more animal fat than the population of its southern part. However, the incidence of arterial myocardial atherosclerosis in northerners is 7 times lower.
Cholesterol is an indispensable substance,Which has also antimicrobial properties. It is necessary both for intrauterine development of the fetal brain, and for the normal function of the central nervous system.
