The medical war against cholesterol has been raging now since the 1950s.
Doctors are still telling people they need to lower their cholesterol.
People are still getting cholesterol tests and hearing about the results.
So it’s my job to show you the facts about cholesterol.
You need to know about the benefits of high cholesterol.
And there have been great discoveries — including this one today.
This study will totally shatter any illusions you have about lowering your cholesterol.
And it couldn’t be clearer.
Researchers took 724 people with the average age of 89 to study.
They followed them for several years.
The researchers wanted to see what it was that was keeping them alive.
And they wanted to know what was causing them to die.
During the next ten years, 642 of the people died.
It’s not an unexpected number when dealing with people this old.
The shocking thing was that people with lower cholesterol were MORE likely to die SOONER.
And high Cholesterol is associated with longer life!
Mortality from cancer and infection was significantly lower among the participants in the highest total cholesterol category.
And just to make sure it’s very clear:
High total cholesterol concentrations are associated with longevity – owing to lower mortality from cancer and infection.
So after seeing this, why would you want to lower your cholesterol?
The real key is raising your cholesterol.
If you can raise your cholesterol, you may be able to be healthier and live longer.
That’s because cholesterol is the feedstock from which all the other steroid hormones are made.
Cholesterol is the hormonal foundation for pregnenolone, progesterone, testosterone, DHT, cortisol, and hundreds more.
And what happens when you have high cholesterol is having more of the necessary building blocks available.
You really can’t have healthy hormone levels without adequate cholesterol.
But what does this mean for you?
If you’re taking statins, you might want to reconsider.
And if you’re lowering cholesterol, you’re actually going to be shortening your lifespan.
You might consider increasing your cholesterol instead.
To raise your cholesterol, you might want to consider increasing your sugar consumption.
Increasing your sugar and lowering your fat increase your cholesterol in a healthy way.
And they raise your metabolism!
Sugar will raise your cholesterol reliably and can improve your overall health.
If you eliminate PUFAs, polyunsaturated fatty acids, from your diet, you can compound the benefit.
Maintain a low-fat diet in general to reap the biggest rewards.
The benefits of high cholesterol in men and women need to be studied further.
