Dr. Joseph Mercola writes that heart disease is one of the leading causes of death, with cholesterol frequently given the blame. But is it justified?

Dr. Fred Kummerow, who was nearly 100 years old at the time of this 2014 interview was the first scientist to document the toxicity of trans fats. Over the past 60 years, his research has repeatedly demonstrated that there is no correlation between high cholesterol and plaque formation that leads to heart disease. His work has showed that it’s not cholesterol that causes heart disease. Instead, trans fats and oxidized cholesterol are to blame.

Processed food is the primary source of trans fat, formed when cholesterol molecules are heat-damaged. The primary source of this is fried foods. Powdered egg yolk (who would ever eat that?) is another example of a food where heating has damaged the fat to the point of creating harmful oxidized cholesterol. Oxidized cholesterol (not dietary cholesterol in and of itself) causes increased thromboxane formation—a factor that clots your blood.

95% of the food that most Americans eat is processed. Trans fats prevent the synthesis of prostacyclin, which is needed to keep your blood flowing. When your body cannot produce prostacyclin, blood clots form, and you may succumb to sudden death. To protect your heart health, you also need to address your insulin and leptin resistance, which is affected by eating a diet too high in sugars and grains.

The good news is that you can eliminate trans fats from your body in about a month of eating a clean diet.

Dr. Mercola speaks to Dr. Fred Kummerow, to get the details about the importance of balancing your omega-3 to omega-6 oil ratio and preventing arterial calcification with the appropriate ratios of calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium, all of which are abundant in a whole food diet.

  • As I comprehend it, oxidized cholestorol means that the impact of oxygen has been reduced.
    That confirms my work with breath for bringing the right amount of oxygen inside the body.
    In this case cholestorol does not loose the impact of its oxygen.

    Without oxygen the body dies after some minutes.
    This shows how important oxygen is.

  • The reasons why the immoral medical establishment has claimed high cholesterol causes heart disease is because of their arrogance, ignorance, and of course, the big profits they could and have made of this totally false bogus theory by creating highly lucrative cholesterol-lowering toxic drugs, such as statins. They’ve been blockbuster drugs for many years.

    What the easily fooled public needs to recognize is that most of the “scientific” research in favor of cholesterol-lowering statins is flawed and fraudulent (read Dr. Uffe Ravnskov’s work).

    The most reliable evidence has long tied statin use with memory problems, muscle disorders, liver damage, cataracts, nerve damage, arterial calcification, pancreatitis, erectile dysfunction, brain dysfunction, diabetes, and with an increased risk of cancer and higher mortality. There are practically no, or only marginal, benefits.

    The physiological mechanisms of how statins do serious damage are also well understood, such as by their impairment of oxidative cell metabolism, the increase in inflammation and cell destruction, the lowering of cholesterol and sex hormone production, the promotion of pancreatic injury, etc. – rather thoroughly explained in this scholarly article on how statins, and a cholesterol-lowering popular diet pill advertised by sleazy Dr. Oz, promote diabetes at – look at Figure 7 to see how irrational it is to block the production of cholesterol!

    Yet despite of the existence of that scientific knowledge, the medical business and the public health authorities keep ignoring it and, for example, continue to recommend statins to diabetics and make claims that they have a low risk profile despite that they are also significantly linked to cancer and higher mortality (just look at the propaganda put out by the Mayo clinic on statin drugs: “the risk of life-threatening side effects from statins is very low”).

    And because of such medical propaganda, few people are aware that the medical claims of benefits of statins are mostly based on junk studies conducted by people with vested interests. And, logically, it’s mostly the corporate medical business and other people with similar vested interests tied to it (eg, mouthpieces, hacks) who promote the alleged value of these highly lucrative products.

    Real science doesn’t mean anything IF it encroaches the big bottom line of this corrupt business mob. They’ll just fabricates whatever false evidence they need to “support” their nonsense theories.

    Also, older people with HIGH cholesterol live longer than those with low cholesterol levels (see above mentioned article for numerous scientific study references confirming this).

    Because the cholesterol-heart disease theory, or rather medical dogma, is wrong, the use of statins is also wrong by logical extension.

    So the real truth is that statins have almost no real benefit in the very vast majority of users. They do more harm than good (read Uffe Ravnskov’s “The Cholesterol Myths” and Malcolm Kendrick’s “The Great Cholesterol Con”). It’s one of many “scientific” scams of the criminal mainstream medical business.

    • great comment james, read abit about statins being bad and them attacking the same stuff the brain is made from. with that on top of what you said im deffo getting my dad off them.
