Cholesterol is good for you. That’s the message from Professor Ken Sikaris from our “Choose Health” forum on the weekend.
There is so much confusion in the community, and with doctors, on what cholesterol is and what is good and bad about it.
There has been so much misinformation and scaremongering about cholesterol and Ken cleared the air on the topic, once again. He presented on the the whole issue.
Cholesterol is an integral part of our cell membranes and is involved in moving nutrients and waste through the cell walls. We need cholesterol for hormone synthesis.
Taking statin drugs to decrease cholesterol may end up being one of the greatest pharmaceutical disasters of all times when a far better long term result is likely to be with a change in diet.
The ‘bad cholesterol’ is small dense LDL particles and they can be reduced by simply avoiding fructose, that half of sugar I go on about.
