Quasi-News and Commentary
In a January 1, Journal of Cardiology story, it was concluded that patients with high HDL and CAD had a similar or lower prevalence of traditional CAD risk factors compared with patients with normal HDL levels and CAD. In other words, your cholesterol level means squat. Why then hasn’t this news been heralded around the globe? I’ll tell you why, it is not in the financial interests of the pharmaceutical industry. These modern day medicine show con artists would rather have people pay huge prices for something they don’t even need, that even may be harmful to them.
People with high cholesterol live the longest. This statement seems so incredible that it takes a long time to clear oneÂ´s brainwashed mind to fully understand its importance. Yet the fact that people with high cholesterol live the longest emerges clearly from many scientific papers. Consider the finding of Dr. Harlan Krumholz of the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at Yale University, who reported in 1994 that old people with low cholesterol died twice as often from a heart attack as did old people with a high cholesterol.1 Supporters of the cholesterol campaign consistently ignore his observation, or consider it as a rare exception, produced by chance among a huge number of studies finding the opposite.
Of course,, you’ve got to keep in mind, the pharmaceutical companies market their products to the hilt, especially the new ones people think they need. Some of the “statins” cost upwards to 10 dollars per tablet!
After you have read all about cholesterol, the pros and the cons, check and see who funds most of the positive anti-cholesterol therapy studies. Merk, Eli Lily, Pfizer, and other drug companies.
It’s time for the healthcare product consumer to stand up and take charge of his and her own bodies. You cannot trust medical terrorists and mercenaries to work in your best interests. Always get a second opinion if a cardiologist your family physician sent you to says you need a quintuple coronary artery bypass. Never accept a new cholesterol medication simply because your doctor thinks its great — check it out.
