is the true cause of heart attacks and heart disease-- not cholesterol.
This artery disease kills and cripples people by blocking off blood
flow to the heart with fatty clots called plaque.
people (doctors included) mistakenly
believe that cholesterol causes
plaque. But it isn't so. Just because
doctors found cholesterol in artery
plaques, they assumed that high
cholesterol was the cause of arteriosclerosis.
Yet there has never been any medical
proof of this.
from being the bad guy, cholesterol is absolutely essential to your
body. You couldn't survive without it. More than 80% of the cholesterol
floating through your bloodstream is produced by your liver. That's
its job. Cholesterol breaks down the fats in your diet and helps
your body to digest them.
cholesterol reading is a warning signal, like the oil light going
on in your car. It's warning you that something is making your liver
pump out too much cholesterol. Taking drugs is akin to disconnecting
the warning light instead of fixing the trouble. Sooner or later
your engine is going to be seriously damaged. In the same way, merely
treating your symptoms (instead of their causes) becomes a never-ending
exercise in futility. You never really get better.
Cholesterol Isn't The Problem, What Is?
The real villain is whatever is causing cholesterol to clump together
into these plaques. That something is too much of the wrong oil
and fat in our diet. This is your heart's worst enemy. Here's why
Pollutes your Blood
If you've ever had grease stains on your clothes you know how hard
they are to remove. That's because fat is difficult to break down.
The same is true in your arteries. Consumption of the wrong types
of fat makes your liver work overtime, producing extra cholesterol
to handle to load.
Damages Your Arteries
Oxygen turns all this extra fat and cholesterol in your bloodstream
rancid. (This process is called oxidation.) The same thing happens
when you leave fresh meat or butter out of the refrigerator for
too long, or your banana or pear turn brown. These rotting fats
produce toxins called free radical molecules that damage the smooth
walls of your arteries, creating microscopic cracks. Here is the
real culprit leading to plaque build up. This rancid fat in your
blood makes it flow thick and slow and therefore deposits in those
tiny cracks. This is how a clot begins. Over time these fat deposits
grow larger. At some point the body lays down calcium on top of
them, making plaque. This is called hardening of the arteries...
the real cause of a heart attack.
Causes Stroke or Heart Attacks
When plaque begins to narrow the opening of the artery you get high
blood pressure, when plaque becomes large enough to block the blood
supply to the heart or to the brain you get a heart attack or stroke
which can be fatal. But at any time smaller plaques can and do dislodge
and obstruct the tiny coronary arteries that supply the heart muscle.
This causes terrible chest pain, panic, and irreversible heart damage
leading to a heart attack. And oxidation, NOT cholesterol, is the
"Cholesterol-Free" Hoax That Could Kill You
Food manufactures are using the cholesterol scare to confuse and
trick you. They want you to believe that just because their products
contain "no cholesterol" that they are good for you. They
aren't so don't you believe them. Polyunsaturated oils from corn,
soybean, palm, and coconut oils are just as bad for your arteries.
worse, as you probably know, are the products containing vegetable
oils that have been "hydrogenated." This process changes
the melting point of these oils so they stay solid, even in your
bloodstream. You cannot taste it when hydrogenated oils become rancid.
This is exactly why they are so popular in cookies, crackers, and
so many other packaged foods. But ingesting rancid, oxidized fat
is the worst thing you can do to your heart! This is the secret
cause of why there's so much heart disease in our country these
to see just how widespread hydrogenated oil use is? Just read the
labels of the processed foods in your pantry and grocery store.
You'll be shocked! Up to 75% of all fats now consumed in the U.S.
are hydrogenated. They now appear in everything from nondairy coffee
creamers to fried corn chips.
hydrogenation is here to stay. Plans are now being made to hydrogenate
omega-3 fish oils and offer it to the public as "heart-healthy"
cholesterol-free margarine and shortening. Don't fall for this scam
read your labels! There are only a few oils that are good for your
arteries and body they are mono-unsaturated unrefined virgin olive
oil, flax oil and fish oils that contain omega 3, 6 and 9 essential
Cholesterol Scare is Nothing More Than A Scape Goat
If cholesterol is innocent, why have doctors focused so much on
it instead of condemning plaque and dietary fat? Five reasons...
Huge opposition from food manufactures. Doctors would incur the
wrath of powerful food lobbies if they blew the whistle.
Mistaken assumptions. Because the famous Framingham medical study
found that no participant with total cholesterol under 150 had a
heart attack during the study, doctors assumed that lowering cholesterol
would lower a patient's heart attack risk. But this has never been
proven by subsequent tests. In fact, other studies show that two
thirds of people with high cholesterol never get heart attacks.
Doctors are not educated about diet. They receive almost NO nutritional
training in medical school so they're largely unaware of this "fat
connection." But even if doctors did know what to tell their
patients, they wouldn't have time. The average office visit lasts
about seven short minutes!
Doctors don't believe you'll change. Doctors are convinced that
Americans won't give up their favorite "heart attack foods"
no matter what. They've heard so many patients whine that "Life
isn't worth living without my (steak, ice cream, potato chips, cigarettes,
alcohol, etc.)," that they think everyone is like that. So
they don't try.
There's BIG money to be made. Drug companies don't have any products
that can destroy arterial plaque or halt its oxidation. But they
do have drugs that disrupt cholesterol production in your liver.
Their bright idea: If we can keep some of this cholesterol out of
the bloodstream, less will be oxidized and less plaque will be formed.
This way they can legally claim that their drugs fight heart disease.
is a Colossal Mistake!
That's like putting a filter on the end of a cigarette and claiming
it fights lung cancer. What a mistake! The drug industry is using
cholesterol as a smokescreen to confuse people so they can make
more money. Tragically, their scheme is working. By changing the
cholesterol guidelines, drug companies have almost TRIPLED their
number of potential customers overnight! Doctors have no choice
but to to along. Cholesterol drugs are now the leading prescription
written by doctors. The cost? About $80.00 to $135.00 per month.
Can you really afford this extra expense which can become a lifetime
drugs do nothing to correct the underlying reason your liver is
producing more cholesterol. So when you stop taking, your levels
soar again. Most people who get started rarely get off. This is
a marketer's dream...but it could be a nightmare for you. Because
all cholesterol drugs produce unpleasant side effects...from bloating,
nausea, constipation, and muscle soreness, to cataracts, liver damage,
cancer and even death! The most popular drugs (statins) can weaken
your heart muscle so severely that they can actually cause a heart
You Already on Cholesterol Medication?
You are probably already aware of the importance of CoQ10 for your
heart. But what you may not know is that if you are taking any of
the popular statin drugs to lower your cholesterol, your heart muscle
is being depleted of this important nutrient. CoQ10 supplies the
energy for your heart's pumping action. Without a sufficient supply
of CoQ10 the heart simply fails. New studies overwhelmingly show
that any and all of the statins create dangerous CoQ10 deficiencies
that can lead to congestive heart failure. The only way to protect
yourself is to make sure you take CoQ10 supplements with your medication.
you are currently on any cholesterol drug you can benefit from all
of the plaque-busting remedies. Each one is so safe that any can
be taken with your medication to help them work even better. They'll
help drop your numbers faster so your doctor can reduce your dose...or
even eliminate it entirely. This is important because most cholesterol
medications produce side effects and cause long term damage you
your liver, kidneys, and heart. Some can even kill you. So the less
you take, the sooner you'll be off them so you can get on with the
real job of erasing the plaque in your arteries. Think of the money
you'll save! Here's what you can do right now.

level, he'll cut your prescription dose. When your numbers hit the
"safety zone," ask him to take you off the drug altogether
and monitor how well these non-drug alternatives are working all

(especially those over 60) do just as well on lower doses of many
prescriptions drugs. The extra amount could be what's causing uncomfortable
or harmful side effects.) Ask your MD to lower your dose and watch
how you feel. Chances are you'll get the same result, yet feel much

I might recommend Cholarest SC which features policosanol, a natural compound that delivers powerful, natural support for healthy blood lipid levels and other important factors related to cardiovascular health. Supports healthy lipid metabolism. Supports the health of arterial walls by preventing lipid peroxidation. Positively effects platelet function, which is an important factor in supporting healthy blood flow. Helps to maintain healthy blood pressure levels already within normal range.
I might choose to recommend Tripticol which is a synergistic formula designed and patented to lower LDL
