The Cholesterol Myth
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with The Cholesterol Myth?
so I want to create a short video on cholesterol I want to separate the facts from the opinions and the myths first of all that cholesterol has a purpose and I know that you were taught and I was taught the cholesterol clogs arteries it makes heart disease and it’s really really bad we should avoid it and eat Cheerios because of course that oatmeal reduce it but let’s just take it one step further and help you understand what the heck it is first of all the first thing you need to know is that your body makes cholesterol in fact 75% of all the cholesterol in your body right now is made by your own body only 25% comes from the food from your diet that’s interesting so if your cholesterol was so bad why does your body make it because obviously it has a reason here’s the purpose of cholesterol number one it’s the raw material that makes up hormones especially the steroid hormones which is like testosterone adrenal hormones the sex hormones all these hormones that you need to prevent aging are built from cholesterol so when you start cutting down cholesterol especially when you get older you’re going to have a lot of problems because there’s just as many diseases and problems that occur with a low cholesterol as with I high cholesterol which I’m going to get into in the next section but we need cholesterol to make hormones especially as you age number two you need cholesterol to make bio biles the detergent that breaks down the grease it’s a fluid from your liver that helps you digest without bile you get bloating right shoulder pain you can’t absorb under the fought with that side we’ll vitamins like vitamin A D E and K so we need the cholesterol emic bio and vitamin D vitamin D is made from cholesterol from converting the sunlight through the skin all the cell membranes are made from cholesterol your brain is made of cholesterol the skin is lined with cholesterol so you need cholesterol okay so it’s not as bad as you think the problem with cholesterol is when you have maybe too much cholesterol that goes in versus coming out but it’s overrated back I would say about 20 years ago the normal cholesterol was 225 and the arbitrarily lowered it to 200 put millions of people on cholesterol-lowering drugs I don’t know if you knew that so the other problem is that now they’re going down to 150 and 100 it’s getting crazy so it’s the inability to kind of they kind of take if the little cholesterol might clog an artery they go all the way to the extreme some other facts about cholesterol are number one carbohydrates turn into bad cholesterol and triglycerides which are blood fats faster than consuming cholesterol turns into cholesterol okay so in other words when you eat eggs and things like that your body will break that down with the bio but when you have too many carbs breads pasta cereal crackers biscuits waffles pancakes you’re going to spike your cholesterol a lot higher so there’s a conversion ratio sugar and refined carbs and juices and alcohol and all that stuff alright next thing is the dream I’ll stress when you’re under stress your body requires more cholesterol to make more hormones and a lot of times doctors when they evaluate they don’t find out in the history when did your cholesterol start spiking it could have been after a stressful event your body’s just trying to survive it needs cholesterol to make these anti stress hormones and then lastly the eggs eggs are loaded with cholesterol but eggs will increase the good cholesterol okay and they are loaded with lecithin lecithin is the antidote to cholesterol it breaks down cholesterol so I do I’ve been doing four eggs a day every day for the last 20 years 25 years and my cholesterol is about 4,000 no I’m just kidding it’s actually pretty low it’s like 180 and it’s within the normal range and the other thing I want to mention is that when your cholesterol is normal don’t let the doctor put you on a cholesterol-lowering medication only treat something if there’s a problem not when you don’t need it because a lot of people are taking as a preventive well the side effect from a lot of these medications are major they’re way more than potential problems with cholesterol so you want both ends but sometimes the doctor puts you in fear INSAS if you don’t take this you’re going to get a stroke but you just need to you need to understand all the facts so so in the next section I want to show you something even more interesting okay so now check this out here’s a graph of the Framingham study which basically all of the risk factors that you get on your cholesterol reports are based on this one study and if you’ve ever read the study it’s fascinating very a lot of doctors have never read the study but this is what it says it says that when you have lower cholesterol and by the way on the left side here these are the deaths yearly deaths 1 2 3 4 & 5 okay and that’s with people with low cholesterol and then people with high cholesterol they’re considering 270 high 130 low okay so this is what happens if you look at the deaths with low cholesterol it’s one or the thousand at 1:30 and it’s two out of a thousand at 270 okay so this is what they did they said that’s an increase of a hundred percent risk but notice what they said they they used the word risk but not rate of getting heart attacks risk has basically no legal definition apparently in this study because it’s not really a hundred percent increase because these are fractions if you know anything about mathematics going from one one thousand to a two and thousand is only an increase of an actual point one percent one tenth of one percent that’s the real rate of getting a heart attack this if the doctor told you that you have a point one percent of getting a heart attack you probably wouldn’t take the medication because it’s so rare one tenth of one percent okay that does not make sense so so that’s that’s basically how they fudged it they use the risk factors and you say you’re one hundred percent at risk and they have risk one to like our risk factors of one two three and four which I’m still trying to figure out what it means because it’s very complex and confusing but it’s not a hundred percent risk now the other thing that you need to look at that the total deaths from cholesterol low cholesterol is even higher than high cholesterol so check this out other side effects of cholesterol-lowering drugs include a 7% sit I’m sorry a 700 percent increase in colon cancers a 12 fold increase in breast cancer 45 percent increase in gall stones 145 percent increase in gastritis an increase rather than expected decrease in heart and circulation rate related deaths and twice as many heart attacks internal bleeding and severe constipation liver disease and ulcers of the stomach intestines anemia taste and smell disturbances and visual difficulties dizziness lower white blood cell count enjoin heart rhythm problems phlebitis that’s inflammation of the arteries cancer increased death rate in a 5,000 patients study there was a 36 percent increase in death as compared to those taking the placebo let’s see placebo increased incident of impulsive homicidal and suicide by and a hundred and seventy five percent increase in appendectomies other than that there’s no the side effects

Dr. Berg explains cholesterol and where most of it comes from. Is eating certain foods or avoiding certain goods, really helping to lower your cholesterol?
High cholesterol, also known as hypercholesterolemia, is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Abnormal levels of LDL cholesterol or HDL cholesterol are treated with a low-fat diet, exercise, and medications such as statins. But, there maybe a better way. Watch the video.
