Cholesterol: A Myth and a Fraud!
By F. Batmanghelidj,
in the medical profession, totally oblivious of the vital roles
of cholesterol in the body, have been duped into thinking that it
is this substance that causes arterial disease of the heart and
the brain. The pharmaceutical industry has capitalized on the slogan
of "bad cholesterol" and has produced toxic-to-the-body
chemicals that minimally lower the level of cholesterol in the body
and in the process cause liver damage to thousands of people, some
who die as a result of using the medication.
is surprising that none of the frequently quoted and media-popularized
doctors has reflected on the fact that cholesterol levels are
measured from blood taken from the veins, yet nowhere in medical
literature is there a single case of cholesterol having caused
obstruction of the veins. Venous blood moves far slower than arterial
blood and thus would be more inclined to have cholesterol deposits
if the assumption of "bad cholesterol" were accurate.
This mistake by us in the medical community, and its capitalization
by the pharmaceutical industry, has caused an ongoing fraud against
truth, the so-called "bad" cholesterol is actually far
more beneficial than is appreciated. The reason for its rise in
the body is because of complications caused by chronic unintentional
dehydration and insufficient urine production. Dehydration produces
concentrated, acidic blood that becomes even more dehydrated during
its passage through the lungs before reaching the heart - because
of evaporation of water in the lungs during breathing. The membranes
of the blood vessels of the heart and main arteries going up to
the brain become vulnerable to the shearing pressure produced by
the thicker, acidic blood. This shearing force of toxic blood causes
abrasions and minute tears in the lining of the arteries that can
peel off and cause embolisms of the brain, kidneys and other organs.
To prevent the damaged blood vessel walls from peeling, low-density
(so-called "bad") cholesterol coats and covers up the
abrasions and protects the underlying tissue like a waterproof bandage
until the tissue heals.
the vital, life-saving role of low-density cholesterol proves this
substance is of utmost importance in saving the lives of those who
do not adequately hydrate their bodies so that their blood can flow
easily through the blood vessels without causing damage.
is an element from which many of our hormones are made. Vitamin
D is made by the body from cholesterol in our skin that is exposed
to sunlight. Cholesterol is used in the insulating membranes that
cover our nerve systems. There is no such a thing as bad cholesterol.
If all the primary ingredients are available for its normal functions,
the human body does not engage in making things that are bad for
its survival. Until now we did not know water was a vital nutrient
that the body needed at all times - and in sufficient quantity.
itself - not caffeinated beverages that further dehydrate - is a
better cholesterol-lowering medication than any chemical on the
market. It is absolutely safe and is not harmful to the body like
the dangerous medications now used. Please share this information
with those you care for.
