If you’re SO OVER the idea that all your favorite foods are somehow “bad” for you…
If you’re SICK to death of being treated like a human pincushion for constant cholesterol checks…
And if you’re just plain FED UP with taking drugs to cut your LDL… and battling the side effects that come along for the ride…
Then I’ve got the news you’ve been waiting for!
The GREAT CHOLESTEROL MYTH has just been BUSTED once and for all – and now, it’s not just me saying it.
A major new study now PROVES… beyond all doubt… that generations of fear-mongering over cholesterol is just plain WRONG.
If you’re NOT on cholesterol meds, here’s all you need to make sure you NEVER get started on them.
And if you ARE on them, it’s time to march into your doctor’s office and demand some answers.
Because odds are… you’re NOT getting the protection you think you are!
The TRUTH about cholesterol-lowering drugs
Yes, my friend, it turns out you DON’T need those cholesterol meds they’ve been relentlessly pushing on everyone over the age of 40.
Taking them WON’T save or extend your life, but that’s not all.
They also WILL expose you to a nightmare list of side effects… for absolutely ZERO benefit.
I’m talking about fatigue… pain… and brain fog… just to name a few.
And this isn’t just one little study of a handful of people.
It’s a MAJOR analysis of DECADES of science, with researchers honing in on 35 clinical trials on statins, ezetimibe, and/or PCSK9 meds versus a placebo or “usual care.”
More importantly, each of those studies lasted at least a year.
What they discovered doesn’t just SHAKE the foundation of cholesterol theory.
It SHATTERS it!
They found NO consistent benefit to meeting cholesterol goals… with three-quarters of the studies finding NO benefit in terms of death risk…
And nearly half finding NO benefit on the overall risk of cardiovascular disease.
What’s more, if there were ANY truth to this theory at all, we’d see at least a trend -- that bigger drops in LDL levels would lead to bigger benefits.
But that didn’t happen.
In fact, they found no link AT ALL between how much LDL levels dropped and any possible outcomes.
A handful of the studies found benefits here and there -- and even then, they were modest.
But the overall sum of the combined data showed no consistency… and that was true for all 3 types of medications.
In other words… it’s not just the drugs that are flawed.
The very notion of “cholesterol control” itself is the problem!
Of course, DON’T stop any med that you’re on without talking to your doctor first. Everyone’s situation is different.
But you DO want to have that conversation – and make sure he’s aware of this new study published online by in the highly respected (and VERY mainstream) BMJ Evidence Based Medicine.
If it turns out you’re in a special risk category… and DO need to cut your cholesterol and/or triglycerides… you have other options besides those meds, including…
- red yeast rice
- policosanol, and
- fish oil.
For maximum heart protection in general, don’t stress your LDL…
And certainly don’t fear your favorite natural foods like meat, eggs, and cheese… just because of their supposed cholesterol levels.
Instead, focus on proven protection.
Keep a healthy weight… go for a walk each day…
And make sure you have the nutrients that can keep your blood pumping and your heart beating, such as…
- fish oil
- coenzyme Q10
- magnesium, and
- vitamin E as mixed tocopherols.
