Cholesterol and Fat Still Being Scapegoated By Doctors

Despite a plethora of research showing that cholesterol does not cause heart disease, doctors are still starting their training by being indoctrinated with this false fact. In Chapter Two of the book pictured here, “Pathologic Basis of Disease,” which is a foundational book doctors study in medical school, on page 40: under the heading “Causes of Cell Injury,” the statement is made that “Excess of cholesterol predisposes to atherosclerosis.” This is an untrue statement. Cholesterol is a substance every cell of your body needs. It is not harmful to the body. And there is a plethora of studies that prove it.

When your dietary intake of cholesterol goes down, your body makes more. When you eat greater amounts of cholesterol, your body makes less. Because of this, foods high in dietary cholesterol have very little impact on blood cholesterol levels in most people.

BIG NEWS!!!! The American Academy of Cardiology has just come out with a paper specifically stating that there is NO EVIDENCE that limiting saturated fat prevents heart disease. In fact, it was found to protect against stroke! Their recommendation is now that people NOT limit saturated fat intake. So eat all the meat, eggs, and cheese you want!

It would be impossible for me to list every single study that has suggested or concluded that this cholesterol hypothesis is false. I will however list a few.
