DR HOLLY'S ARTICLE ABOUT CHOLESTEROL: 2017 Cholesterol – is it a myth? I am sure you have heard of High and Low Cholesterol. You have probably heard that HDL is your good cholesterol and LDL is your bad cholesterol. And probably that it is not so much what the total number is, but rather what the ratio is. Right? Do you know that that is all wrong? If you read my book on the Heart, you will learn how the whole myth got started. The poorly designed studies with inappropriate analysis. It will explain how the medical profession recognized the absurdity of it. But then Big Pharma got hold of it and well, they sure knew how to make money out of it. So why is it all hog wash? Well from a number of different perspectives, but let’s look at a few of them: 1) There are a variety of HDLs and LDLs a. Some HDLs are bad for you, for instance, HDL3 should not be above HDL 2a or 2b, if it is, you are in trouble b. Some LDLs are more important for you than the HDLs, here are a few of them: i. LDL A – large & buoyant LDL – this is what you want ii. LDL B – predominantly small & dense LDL – you don’t want this-> diabetes, hi bld pressure, artheriosclerosis iii. LDL mixed iv. LDL R – associated with a bad diet v. LDL a – a good inflammatory marker vi. IDL – similar to an LDL but without the TG, transports TG fats & cholesterols; & can promote growth of atheroma vii. Lp(a) Lipoprotein consists of an LDL-like particle & controlled genetically; kidney function important for clearing it viii. VLDL 1,2 – very large & transports TGs to adipose and muscle 2) You have probably heard that your liver makes about 80% of your cholesterol a. If your dietary cholesterols are low – your liver makes more b. If your dietary cholesterols are high – your liver makes less 3) Why is your liver so involved in regulating the different types and amount of cholesterol? a. outer rim of the cell – cholesterols are required to regulate what goes in and out of the cell – if you don’t enough of it in the membrane – the cell membrane will collapse and the cell will die b. bile – bile is made from cholesterol and is responsible for breaking down the fats that you digest; and allows you to absorb the good fats – we need fats for a huge number of things in the body: various transportation vehicles; insulation; energy, messengers, protect vital organs, initiate various chemical reactions that are involved with our immune system, reproduction system and metabolic systems; store fat soluble vitamins like Vitamin A, D, E & K; c. hormones – all the steroid hormones are made from cholesterol: testosterone, estrogen, cortisol, aldosterone d. Vitamin D – required to make Vitamin D; vitamin D is involved in absorption of calcium; involved in the immune system and the prevention of cancers; heart disease and high blood pressure and a variety of other processes e. insulation – the neurons in the brain require proper insulation to work and they need fat – without it various neurological disorders can occur from memory loss and various types of dementia to MS f. absorption of fat based vitamins: A, D, E, K g. acts as an anti-oxidant – our body uses all kinds of anti-oxidants; different anti-oxidants will work on different free radicals and different free radicals in different places h. contributes to bone formation – they would be hollow & brittle without it i. cholesterol plaque is there to protect damaged arteries - a clogged artery is better than a ruptured one j. oxidation of cholesterol is the 1st step by which cholesterol transforms into vitamin D3 k. cholesterol sulfate deficiency leads to glucose intolerance 4) there is no proof that taking statin drugs reduces risk of heart attacks or death, but they do have devastating side effects, including: a. muscle damage, including the heart muscle b. neurological problems including dementia and Lou Gehrig’s disease c. nerve damage d. liver enzyme problems e. kidney failure f. elevated blood glucose (sugar) levels g. tendon issues h. anemia i. sexual dysfunction 1 5) aggressive cholesterol treatment with two medications Zocor and Zetia leads to more plaque build up in the arteries and no few heart attacks 6) countries with higher average cholesterol than Americans (Swiss, Spanish) have less heart disease 7) statin drugs prevent the body from making CoQ10 8) statin drugs also prevent you from making cholesterol sulfate which your heart requires and Dr Stephanie Seneff say syou will end up with acute heart failure So why did the 2004 National Cholesterol Education Program determine that more people should be on statin drugs, including those who have no heart disease (has gone up from 13 million to 40 million)? Are you aware that 8 of the 9 experts on the panel had financial ties to Big Pharma? Do you know the difference between Relative Risk and Absolute Risk? If 3 out of 1000 people over the age of 65 will get a heart attack over the next 5 years And if all those people are put on statin drugs that cause all kinds of problems, that number will drop from 3 to 2 people over the next 5 years The Relative Risk ratio from 3 to 2 is 33% The Absolute Risk ration from 3 to 2 out of 1000 over a 5 year period is more like 0.04% MDs are taught about Relative Risk and have no idea about Absolute Risk When they are taught about Absolute Risk with any give drug, the prescription rate drops dramatically Did you know that Lipitor alone, makes over 1 billion dollars a day? Do you think that is why MDs are not taught the particulars? What can we say in the positive 1) walking a mile a day does better than a statin drugs 2) eating a Granny Smith apple, a day does better than a statin drug 3) taking more omega 3s to lower your inflammation does better than a statin drug 4) sugar increases the damaging small cholesterol particles – NOT LDL 5) rancid or oxidized cholesterol is a problem which in turn causes inflammation, but that can be remedied with anti-oxidants So what do we need to do? 1) Keep to an anti-inflammatory diet – good omega 3s 2) Keep up good levels of probiotics 3) Make sure we are getting our B vitamins, ie., B6, B9, B12 4) Eliminate the sugars and simple carbs 5) Make sure you walk a mile a day and eat a Granny Smith or hard, tart apple 6) If you get sufficient sunlight, your skin will make cholesterol sulfate along with the Vitamin D which ends up bringing down the cholesterols we don’t want References: 1 https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2014/04/14/vitamin-d-cholesterol-levels.aspx
