levels are the difference between life and death. You must
reduce your cholesterol level to healthy cholesterol levels.
A high cholesterol level means you will have a heart attack.
Cholesterol fact, or cholesterol fiction?
The answer is both simple and complex! Simple, in that
cholesterol levels themselves are not the problem. Complex,
because high cholesterol levels signify a different problem (albeit an
easy one to resolve).
What are healthy cholesterol levels?
Simply put, when your doctor measures your cholesterol level, he
discovers how much of the varying types of cholesterol are circulating in
your blood. As your doctor would have you believe, healthy
cholesterol levels are low and unhealthy cholesterol levels are high -
because that's what he's paid to tell you!
Regardless of the amount of cholesterol in your diet, your liver will
make however high or low a cholesterol level your body needs,
period. High cholesterol diet or low cholesterol diet, your cholesterol levels will be the
same - why? Check out our cholesterol page for full details.
Put simply, it doesn't matter whether your diet is high in cholesterol
or low in cholesterol - cholesterol is so important to your body that
it can, and does make your cholesterol levels exactly what it needs
them to be, so, for YOU, your cholesterol levels are healthy
cholesterol levels - everything else considered.
Does it matter that you don't have
healthy cholesterol levels"?
Of course it does, but not for the reasons you think. Un-Healthy
cholesterol levels signify that you are deficient in Vitamin C, which is used to repair
the continual damage to your arteries. If you can't fix
them, the body needs to do something else to ensure un-healthy
cholesterol levels show that your body is using its "reserve" repair
material instead of its first choice, nothing more, nothing less.
As explained on our cholesterol page, the issue is not
your high cholesterol levels, it is your dietary lack of vitamin C that causes high cholesterol levels, so stop
worrying about your high cholesterol diet and
cholesterol levels and start worrying about your vitamin C intake!
