    I'm not quite sure what to do with this information. I've never believed that all cholesterol intake was unhealthy, just staying away from anything not natural and keeping my intake of fats down. I think processed foods are the culprit and sugar is certainly part of it. But we also know that clogged arteries lead to some nasty outcomes so I guess the question is what prompts the body to make more cholesterol than is healthy for you? The statins have been our savior but there must be a chemical trigger telling your body to overproduce.

    Anyone know more?

    Please don't go off your meds, regardless of what they told you those pills are for.

    The Paleo diet theory was started by Dr Cordain who was researching the fat consumption of primitive societies. It was then discovery that early " fat " research was falsified by the Surgeon General and others who needed a scapegoat for President Eisenhowers heart attack while in office. 1950's margarine companies helped out in this matter.

    Plaque in arteries that is composed of cholesterol is the the body's defense mechanism triggered by inflamation. Inflamation is caused by basically eating what our body thinks is poison, the modern man made diet.

    I've read so much contradicting info on this that by now it pisses me off.

    Especially of concern is taking statins which at one point was said to possibly be a cause of dementia and at another time was said to help keep dementia away. So there's conflicting info on both the intake/production of it and the "cure" for it.

    If I ever found out for certain that mom taking statins caused her Alzheimer's, I can't imagine how upset I'd be.

    My family genetics including my body tends to make a lot of its own and so I don't eat meats, haven't in more than 20 years. I limit eggs to probably less than a dozen a month. Skim milk only. I check cholesterol numbers before buying a product. Beyond that if what my body does on it's own is bad for me, oh well, we all die. My only hope is that it's a heart attack and not a stroke.

    Don't do that....yet, but add a good fish or krill oil daily for a healthier solution. Be sure to check out COQ10 in the refined version called Ubiquinol to counter the muscle and heart killing negative effects of the statin drug.
