The cholesterol myth is one of the biggest frauds and only to perpetuate the need for statins. The ongoing Framingham study has, consistently paid no mind by the powers that be.
In fact, a very large nursing study concluded that low levels of vitamin E in the blood is a better indicator of cardiovascular disease than high levels of cholesterol. It is more than shameful that the RDI has not been updated for over 50 years. Vitamin C and E has only been minimally increased. There has been also studies that have concluded that college students have been showing signs of scurvy, which may be the missing link in the pathology of cardiovascular disease that has been, suspiciously ignored.
Sadly, I believe statins are just a tool to create more disease, which results in the need for more drugs. It is, basically the same reason complex carb consumption and a low fat diet is strongly recommended.
In conclusion, I firmly believe systemic enzymes of both a plant and animal source is a novel way to protect us from the consequences of believing in misguided notions and inferior behavior. Proper food and proper nutritional support, along with prudent exercise is the least expensive and most viable method in preventing disease.
I concur with everything in your post except one item. I am not at all convinced low fat diet is good for you. As an example Eskimo’s eat a lot of blubber fat and have lower rates of heart disease.
A balanced diet with adequate fat and protein along with complex carbs, veggies & fruits is a pretty healthy diet IMO.
In my own example, if I do not eat adequate amount of fat and protein, especially in breakfast, my blood sugar goes higher. And as every one knows high levels of blood sugar will cause a lot of problems including kidney failure, hardening of arteries followed by heart problems. I eat one egg everyday with cheese, and my cholesterol has stayed below 155. FWIW.
