On today’s episode of the LLVLC Show, we talk about a new European study that might be misleading regarding cardiovascular health.
“People worry about eating cholesterol. Your body makes exactly what it needs.”
- Jimmy Moore
In this episode of JIMMY RANTS on the LLVLC Show, I read from a January 2021 published review paper in the journal Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology entitled “The new European guidelines for prevention of cardiovascular disease are misleading.” Read the paper here: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/1…
Dr. Uffe Ravnskov and others make the case that key research was left out of the analysis made by the European Society of Cardiology and European Atherosclerosis Society (ESC/EAS) whose members all have ties to pharmaceutical companies. Their analysis notes contradictory evidence that shows total cholesterol and LDL-C are not factors, why people with diabetes do not need to lower cholesterol, why high cholesterol is not the problem for people with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH), why cholesterol lowering does not lower cardiovascular disease or diabetes risk, and the various negative health effects that happen when you lower cholesterol either naturally or through medications like statins.
If you’re one of those people who still is highly concerned about your cholesterol, then this is an episode for you! The truth is not what you’ve heard and this group of researchers are some of the top experts in the entire world on the subject of cholesterol. Listen and enjoy!
