  • You shouldn’t have anything to worry about, particularly if your "good" HDL is high. The link between coronary artery disease and high cholesterol is pretty weak anyway. Most people with coronary artery disease have a total cholesterol below 211mg/dL. In fact, the greatest all cause mortality was seen in people with total cholesterol levels below 211mg/dL.

    Take a look at these two PDFs from a large study, and W.H.O. statics from 146 countries.

    (See Histogram of Admissions LDL Levels)

    Fifty percent of these hospitalized Coronary Artery Disease patients had the so called "bad" LDL cholesterol levels below 100mg/dL. Less than twenty-five percent of these hospitalized coronary artery disease patients had LDL cholesterol levels above 130mg/dL. In regards to this huge study, elevated LDL cholesterol levels were clearly more protective.

    And a study of elderly women indicated that a total cholesterol of 270mg/dL was associated with the best longevity. (Forette, et al., 1989)

    Also note that:
    "There’s no connection whatsoever between cholesterol in food and cholesterol in blood. And we’ve known that all along. Cholesterol in the diet doesn’t matter at all unless you happen to be a chicken or rabbit."
    –Ancel Keys, Phd. professor emeritus at University of Minnesota — 1997

    Unfortunately, it is the statin industry that is teaching our doctors. Ninety percent of the information they are taught about cholesterol comes directly from the statin industry and studies bought and paid for by the statin industry. Elevated cholesterol levels are not due to a statin deficiency. One hundred people have to be treated for 3.3 years before they are shown to benefit one person. This is little better than chance (or placebo effect) and clever marketing skills allowed by the FDA. Furthermore, statins have never been shown to be beneficial to women. They actually increase mortality in women by ten percent.

    Considering this information, I’d say you are in pretty good shape in regards to your cholesterol.

    The GOOD cholesterol actually removes the Bad , so with higher Good numbers means its the Bad numbers are being kept in check.. Google Cholesterol for more Fact Based info

    There is no such thing as "bad" cholesterol. It’s all the same stuff and, contrary to what the medical profession tries to tell you, you don’t get cholesterol from outside sources.

    The medical profession has labeled cholesterol "good" and "bad" because, with the proper nutrients, the body will never produce anything harmful to itself – therefore, we just HAVE to get cholesterol from outside sources.

    But this is wrong – our body produces all of our cholesterol needs. The reason for the build-up of cholesterol in the arteries is the fault of the medical profession itself.

    The medical profession refuses to recognize dehydration as the cause of health problems. This means that they don’t think it’s possible to get sick if you don’t drink water. In fact, they view water as an inert substance that has no medicinal value. They believe that there’s no difference between water and soft drinks in their "drink plenty of fluids" campaign.

    This couldn’t be any farther from the truth. A steady diet of soft drinks instead of water will cause all kinds of medical problems.

    The trillions of cells in the body need vital nutrients to function properly. These nutrients are delivered by water (combined with salt). The salt removes the toxins from the cells which are carried away by the water to the liver and kidneys for disposal. This process can’t happen if you don’t drink enough water. This is what the medical profession doesn’t realize – this is the "dehydration" that they don’t want to recognize.

    When you don’t drink enough water, the blood thickens and becomes acidic. It loses even more water as it passes through the lungs via the breathing process. Entering the arteries, the acidic blood is under a shearing pressure that causes minute cuts and abrasions to the interior walls that can peel away and cause an embolism in the brain or other organ.

    To prevent this, the body produces the so-called "bad" cholesterol which covers and protects the damage like a waterproof bandage until repairs can be made. Thus, the dreaded "bad" cholesterol is actually designed to save your life.

    The reason it builds up and becomes a life-threatening issue is because the medical profession doesn’t recognize dehydration at the level where health problems (such as this) start. So the dehydration doesn’t get treated, and the damaging effects are allowed to continue. This triggers the production of more and more cholesterol.

    It should be noted that cholesterol is tested by taking blood from a vein in the arm. Yet, there’s never been a single case in medical history where a vein has ever been blocked by cholesterol. Venous blood flows much slower than arterial blood. If the claims of "bad" cholesterol were true, the veins should become blocked well before the larger arteries.

    You can correct your cholesterol by increasing your water and salt intake according to the protocol you’ll find through the link below.
