    High arterial cholesterol is actually there to save your life. Because of this, there is no such thing as "bad" cholesterol – this is a term that has been capitalized on by the drug companies to sell their product.

    Cholesterol buildup in the arteries is caused by chronic dehydration.

    Consider this – cholesterol is tested for by taking a sample of blood from a vein in the arm. Yet, there has never been a case in medical history where the veins have ever become blocked by cholesterol. Venous blood flows slower than arterial blood and would thus be more inclined to cause a blockage in the veins, if the assumption of "bad" cholesterol were true. To carry this out even further, even the much smaller capillaries have never been plagued by cholesterol.

    If cholesterol were such a bad substance that it randomly develops without cause, why are just the arteries targeted? The answer is, because this is where it is needed.

    Dehydration turns the blood acidic. The blood loses even more water due to respiration as it passes through the lungs. By the time it enters the arteries, the acidic blood is under a high, shearing pressure that damages the lining with tiny cuts and abrasions that could peel off and travel to the brain or other organs, causing embolisms.

    This is when cholesterol forms. It’s meant to cover and protect the damaged areas like a waterproof bandage until they can be repaired.

    But because the medical profession doesn’t fully understand the role of water in the body and the consequences of dehydration, the problem goes ignored, allowing the dehydration, the damage caused by the acidic blood and the buildup of cholesterol to worsen.

    Given the proper nutrients, the body will never produce anything harmful to itself – this includes cholesterol. But cholesterol isn’t intended to be harmful. It’s because of the ignorance of the medical profession that it is so dangerous.

    Cholesterol can be lowered by correcting the dehydration – which will bring the acidic blood more into a slightly alkaline state where it belongs. Click the link below to learn how to do it properly.

    Adopt DASH diet (Mediterranean diet). Eat a low-cholesterol, low-fat diet, which includes cottage cheese, fat-free milk, fish, vegetables, poultry, and egg whites. Use monounsaturated oils such as olive, peanut, and canola oils or polyunsaturated oils such as corn, safflower, soy, sunflower, cottonseed, and soybean oils. Avoid foods with excess fat in them such as meat (especially liver and fatty meat), egg yolks, whole milk, cream, butter, shortening, pastries, cakes, cookies, gravy, peanut butter, chocolate, olives, potato chips, coconut, cheese (other than cottage cheese), coconut oil, palm oil, and fried foods.
    You should pay attention to exercise and weight loss to reduce heart attack and stroke.
