Study proves it: You NEED "bad" cholesterol!
Is your cholesterol HIGH enough?
It's not often you hear that question, but maybe docs should ask it more often -- because the latest research shows how you actually need certain levels of those fats in your blood.
And when you fall short, you could pay the price.
I know that's not what you've heard from your mainstream doc, who still thinks "lower is better" when it comes to LDL.
But it just doesn't work that way, and the new study shows what happens when your LDL levels drop: Your diabetes risk rises.
The study looked at people with genetic conditions that make them naturally prone to either high cholesterol or low cholesterol.
Sure enough, the folks with low cholesterol had a higher risk of diabetes.
But you don't have to have a genetic disorder to face that risk.
These folks had natural cholesterol levels that fell right where yours would be if you took statins, which not coincidentally have been linked repeatedly to diabetes.
The risk is so high that even the FDA was forced to issue a warning over it -- but as the new study shows, it's not just a risk of the drugs themselves.
It's a risk of the low cholesterol they cause.
You won't find that in the mainstream guidelines, which still push the myth that lower is always better.
Clearly, that's not the case. Along with increasing your risk of diabetes, very low cholesterol has been linked to immune system problems, memory loss, and certain forms of cancer.
It can even cause nutritional problems, as LDL is responsible for carrying around fat-soluble nutrients.
Of course, high cholesterol also poses risks. In the study, folks with genetically higher cholesterol levels faced a high risk of heart problems.
You won't find many people who dispute that.
The issue isn't whether or not high cholesterol is dangerous -- it's that the current guidelines are every bit as dangerous.
They're set far too low for good health, because lower isn't always better... and the number alone isn't the only risk factor anyway.
Particle size and oxidation of LDL are far more important -- which is why you can have "high" cholesterol and be perfectly healthy, or you can have "low" cholesterol and be a heart attack waiting to happen.
Any doc who doesn't take all of these risk factors into consideration is missing the big picture.
And he's not helping you. He's hurting you.
That's why I recommend working closely with a holistic medical doctor who tests for all of these risk factors -- and if you're in Southern California, I can help.
