The cultural dogma is that cholesterol is an evil villain that needs to be eradicated for true health. Given the unflagging efforts of the United States medical establishment over the last few decades to lower cholesterol and corresponding media
Many researchers have suggested that the blood lipids play a key role in the immune defence system.1–21 There is also a growing understanding that an inflammatory response of the arterial intima to injury is a crucial step in the genesis of atherosclerosis. and that infections may be one type of such injury.22 These two concepts are difficult to harmonize with the low-density-lipoprotein (LDL) receptor hypothesis, according to which high LDL cholesterol is the most important cause of atherosclerosis. However, the many observations that conflict with the LDL receptor hypothesis, may be explained by the idea that high serum cholesterol and/or high LDL is protective against infection and atherosclerosis.
Cholesterol supplementation reverses many symptoms of autism in SLOS disorder. Deficiency is also common in “regular” autism. Some parents reported significant decreases in autistic behavior within days of cholesterol supplementation, even before blood cholesterol values increased, indicating that cholesterol may benefit by forming cholesterol derivatives such as steroid hormones or bile salts. Cholesterol supplementation has allowed some patients to sleep through the night and others to overcome aberrant behaviors, to learn to walk, speak for the first time, and become responsive sociable family members.
This statement seems so incredible that it takes a long time to clear one´s brainwashed mind to fully understand its importance. Yet the fact that people with high cholesterol live the longest emerges clearly from many scientific papers.1 But let us take a look at heart mortality,the risk of dying from a heart attack if cholesterol is high.
Consider for instance the finding by Dr.Harlan Krumholz of the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at Yale University, who reported that old people with low cholesterol died twice as often from a heart attack as did old people with high cholesterol.2 Supporters of the cholesterol campaign consistently ignore his observation, or consider it as a rare exception, the result of chance among a huge number of studies finding the opposite.
Low cholesterol is associated with mortality from stroke, heart disease, and cancer: the Jichi Medical School Cohort Study.
We investigated the relationship between low cholesterol and mortality and examined whether that relationship differs with respect to cause of death.
A community-based prospective cohort study was conducted in 12 rural areas in Japan. The study subjects were 12,334 healthy adults aged 40 to 69 years who underwent a mass screening examination. Serum total cholesterol was measured by an enzymatic method. The outcome was total mortality, by sex and cause of death. Information regarding cause of death was obtained from death certificates, and the average follow-up period was 11.9 years.
There is a tremendous amount of research that has shown low cholesterol levels being associated with a myriad of health conditions. Listed below are various scientific references validating this fact:
