The Truth About High (and Low) Cholesterol

“My doctor prescribed medication for my high cholesterol, but it didn’t lower my numbers at all.  So he prescribed something else, and when that didn’t work, tried something else. ”

Sound familiar?

Medical professionals seem to know of no other solutions, and yet, there is research that shows that the medication and nutrition guidelines held as gospel for the last 20 years are absolutely wrong.

In this article Dr. David Diamond, neuroscientist, talks about the research, his own experience with cholesterol, and how it all went so wrong.

When Dr. Diamond lectures about cholesterol to physicians, they’re often astounded by what they learn. Unfortunately, their “educated ignorance” is not by accident. If studied carefully, you’ll find that the medical profession’s ignorance about cholesterol was crafted by careful design, starting over a century ago with the Flexner Report, funded by the Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations, who wanted nutritional science to be excised from the medical school curriculum.

They were successful in this endeavor, and for the past hundred years, most physicians have been, and still are, nutritionally ignorant. The reason for this, if you haven’t yet deduced it, is because if you know how to heal with food, why would you prescribe drugs? What doctors are taught about nutrition in medical school is wrong. And it’s wrong by design to generate disease that increases profits for the drug companies, which are outgrowths of the chemical industry that the Carnegie and the Rockefeller foundations supported in the 1900s.

The good news is, we can educate ourselves and start the healing process by taking charge of what we eat and how we prepare our foods.

Sugar Addiction

Found this on the BBC News site:
Daily Added Sugar Intake

Government advisers recommend that no more than 5% of daily calories should come from sugar.
That’s about 25g (around six or seven teaspoons) for an adult of normal weight every day. For children it is slightly less.
The limits apply to all sugars added to food, as well as sugar naturally present in honey, syrups, fruit juices and fruit concentrates.
To put this in context, a typical can of fizzy drink contains about nine teaspoons of sugar.

What’s scary about these numbers is that it’s not just cakes and cookies that are the problem.  Our food industry with its hidden sugars in almost everything has created generations of addicts.  And as we all know, breaking addiction is never easy. It won’t be a simple matter of saying, I quit! But taking the first steps will get you started on the road to better health. And for those older adults living with diabetic neuropathy and so many other diseases, we can hope younger generations won’t have to suffer the same problems.  Find the hidden sugars!
