Is this Malicious Health Scandal Stealing your Money?
Doctors will tell you cholesterol is bad and ruining your health. Read on to learn how that is misguided information and how you can use cholesterol and healthy fats to improve your overall health.
Harvard’s medical school states that the brain is unique and it needs to produce its own cholesterol. The brain contains the largest amount of cholesterol in comparison to any other organ. According to research, up to 25 percent of your total cholesterol is found in the brain. Cholesterol is critical for proper brain function including the production of the neurotransmitter serotonin.
Serotonin levels are extremely low in individuals suffering from depression, suicidal thoughts and extreme violence. Serotonin is a key messenger that creates an anti-depressant effect in the brain, it makes you happy. A low cholesterol level decreases serotonin-receptor activity thus producing depression.
You have been lied to about the effects of lowering one’s cholesterol. Artificially lowering cholesterol with statin medication can cause damage to cell membranes and increases the risk of death. A recent clinical trial on statin medications showed a 3-fold increase in suicide in the lowest cholesterol group.[1. Emily Deans, M.D. Evolutionary Psychiatry March 21, 2011] According to the Framingham Study, “There is a direct association between falling cholesterol levels over the first 14 years and mortality over the following 18 years.” It is also now estimated that American’s spend up to 44 billion dollars on depression every year.
It is popular belief in medicine that Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce your cholesterol. Omega-3 fatty acids aid in normalizing your cholesterol through eliminating the effects of inflammation. Inflammation and the oxidation of cholesterol have been found to damage brain tissues thus producing depression, suicidal thoughts and extreme violence.
It is important to have the proper nutritional supplementation of omega-3 and omega-6 in the diet. Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation while omega-6 promote inflammation. The Standard American Diet (SAD) often contains 25 times more omega-6 than omega -3 fatty acids. The ideal balance of Omega 6 and 3 fatty acids has been found to be in a 2:1 ratio.[2. http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/omega-6-000317.htm]
