Misconceptions about cholesterol

Cocoa is rich in flavanol, naturally occurring chemical compounds, for which there is evidence to suggest that these compounds have a positive effect on the concentration of fat (lipid) levels: triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol).

Experts suggest that maintaining normal blood lipid levels in preventing cardiovascular disease, according to portal "Vitamins".

The positive effect of dark chocolate and other cocoa products containing the cholesterol in the blood is important in patients with a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

However, doctors say further studies to determine the optimal daily dose of flavanols, which would be applicable to every day.

For many years now, from all the information that we are bombarded with cholesterol our body causing serious damage repairable.

Accordingly, if we want to stay healthy, we need to drastically reduce the intake of animal fat, such as milk, butter, cheese, cream and other dairy products.

But is it indeed so? Apparently not, as more and more doctors and scientists claim that this is a delusion of mythological proportions.

First things first, and to begin to mention undoubtedly the biggest ever survey conducted by the World Health Organization, that is, their MONICA Project (multinational monitoring of trends and determinants in cardiovascular disease - the multinational monitoring of key factors for cardiovascular disease).

That study, among other things, was aimed to investigate the relationship between cholesterol and cardiovascular disease.

The link has never been established, although the study noted, for more than 10 years spent in 21 countries around the world, the largest sample ever possible, and to 10 million women and men.

Although the results of this long-term and extremely expensive research were perfectly clear, lightning swept under the rug because - you guessed it - they were not in line with what the World Health Organization is expected to get as a result.

So, it remains to conclude that the truth has long been known, but zatajuje in favor of some other, apparently, much more cost-effective 'true'.

Like the truth that at that time, more than 20 years, the cholesterol-lowering drugs already in use, and so it should remain.

Since cholesterol is declared unfair main cause of diseases of the heart and blood vessels, the medical profession has started to recommend animal fat out of the diet.

Instead, the bulk began recommending the use of industrially processed vegetable oils.

Butter was replaced by margarine popular, and even today is widely advised that the consumption of foods such as cheese and cream, reduce to a minimum.

The real cause of heart disease is cholesterol

Above-mentioned results of the WHO MONICA study on the impossibility of linking cardiovascular disease with cholesterol, confirmed by others. Dwight Lundell, a prominent heart surgeon who for 25 years performed more than 5000 operations.

Drawing on scientific research conducted last few years, as well as extensive personal experience, etc..Lundell argues that a major cause of heart disease and blood vessel inflammation that occurs in the arteries as a result of diet with little saturated fat.

In other words, what really causes a lot of damage to our blood vessels, are vegetable oils with a large proportion of omega-6 fatty acids, such as sunflower, soybean and corn, and excessive consumption of products with a large proportion of flour and sugar.

Because, according to dr. Lundell, the medical system has made a terrible mistake when it advised people to avoid saturated fats, and instead use polyunsaturated oils.

These, long-established dietary recommendations have led to an epidemic of obesity and diabetes, which are mortality, human suffering and material costs, surpassed every other plague in human history.

Although atherosclerotic plaque (fatty deposits in the connective-artery wall), contains a very small amount of cholesterol, and despite the fact that these deposits consist mainly of polyunsaturated fat, the propaganda machine has successfully accomplished its task.

Most people today blindly follow officially recommended diet that is low in saturated fat and rich in polyunsaturated fats and carbohydrates, not knowing that the food is just very damaging to our blood vessels.

This ignorance is not surprising, if we consider that the society in which we live, primarily driven by a desire for lucrative profits. It is sad but true, the drug industry is a healthy man najneunosniji, and statins, cholesterol-lowering drugs, belong to the group of the best selling in the world.

Accordingly, it is not difficult to see the connection between the food and drug industry. Production of "health food" that ultimately makes people sick, it is perfectly feasible to both.

Proper role of cholesterol

Waltre Hartenbach, author of'' Lie About Cholesterol ", published in our country, we raise awareness of the true nature of cholesterol and its role in the body.

He explains that cholesterol - all of which are so afraid, keeping it a terrible substance that our body causing immense damage - in fact, the basic building material of cell membranes of all tissues, is necessary for normal functioning of the body.

Since cholesterol is involved in the formation of hormones, vitamins A, D and E, and bile acids, lowering its directly leads to the weakening of vitality and fertility disorders in building bones and muscles, and a serious disturbance in the level of electrolytes, which ultimately lead to serious heart and neurological complications.

Judging by the results of numerous studies, a diet that recommends reducing fat and cholesterol, has no effect on the heart and blood vessels.
Therefore, it would be really high time that the myth of cholesterol declare it what it is - one of the biggest fallacies of our time, and your eating habits finally reconcile with common sense.

If we want to be truly be healthy, we must return to traditional food, based on the intake of saturated fats.

Saturated fats enhance the immune system and prevent many diseases.
Their fatty acid in nature antifungal, antiviral and antimicrobial.

They help prevent osteoporosis, brain food, and ensure the proper functioning of the nervous and hormonal systems. Having said that, reliably reduce the risk of heart and blood vessels.

A diet rich in natural fats in no way harmful to health. On the contrary, such a diet is extremely healthy and particularly useful.

In any case, the reduction of carbohydrate intake and increased intake of natural fats such as those from local milk, cheese, butter and coconut oil long term will protect you from many diseases and doctors visits.
