What Is The Normal Cholesterol For Somone With Heart Condition

What Is The Normal Cholesterol For Somone With Heart Condition

A MyHeartDiseaseTeam Member said:

High cholesterol does not cause heart disease. The heart attack epidemic only started in my grandfathers generation. There were very few heart attacks a hundred years ago, but by the 1950s and 60s it became the leading cause of death, even though cholesterol levels remained STATIC over the same period of time? People of my grandfather's generation and before, had the same cholesterol numbers we have, because genetics can't change that much, that fast. Why weren't they suffering heart attacks, even though their cholesterol levels were the same as ours? It's the diet i.e., the excessive consumption of sugar, grains, processed grain oils, trans fats and other processed crap coming from the giant food companies. CVD is really a form of diabetes. High blood glucose and insulin levels all day long, driven by eating and drinking large quantities of carbohydrate is destroying our arteries. 2/3 to 3/4 of diabetics die of heart attack or stroke. Think about it. My story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kv1KJzgKz5U&amp...

I like your story, I have read something about the usefulness of cholesterol drugs. Suppose it still on of the issues being further explored. I am sure the drug companies won't be doing any trials to see if we can go without. $$$$
