What Is The Truth About Cholesterol?
In the past, people cooked with animal fat, yet they were much healthier than today’s people, even though they didn’t take cholesterol-lowering pills either.
I introduce two holistic doctors whom we respect and follow and we have already learned much about health from them. In their video presentations they will talk about why you should not be afraid of cholesterol-rich animal fats, and they will dispel misconceptions and mysteries about cholesterol.

In this video, I’m going to share the truth about cholesterol. There are a lot of myths out there about what cholesterol is and what cholesterol does.
The cholesterol myth is this: the more fat you consume, the more likely you are to develop heart disease. This is a lie that one research came up with. In his research, he omitted all of the data that disproved his theory.
Here’s what you should know about cholesterol.
HDL (also known as “good” cholesterol) stands for high-density lipoproteins, LDL (also known as “bad” cholesterol) stands for low-density lipoproteins
HDL and LDL aren’t actually cholesterol at all. Instead, they are proteins that act as envelopes to carry cholesterol through the body. HDL carries old cholesterol to the liver to be recycled.
The truth is, the body needs cholesterol to function. In fact, your body makes 2000 mg of cholesterol every single day. Nearly every cell creates cholesterol. When you consume less cholesterol, your body simply makes more of it to compensate.
Cholesterol acts as a bandaid to heal arteries and blood cells when they become damaged. Your brain, cells, and hormones are largely made up of cholesterol—without cholesterol, you wouldn’t be able to survive.
LDL carries cholesterol from the liver and into the body’s tissue. There’s nothing bad about this since the body needs cholesterol to function. Only a small portion of LDL cholesterol is bad and can cause artery build-up.
Inflammation causes damage to the arteries, and LDL cholesterol comes around to fix the damage. The more inflammation, the more LDL builds up.
What causes inflammation? SUGAR! This includes whole grains, carbs, and hidden sugars in juice, alcohol, and cereal. Instead of avoiding cholesterol, avoid sugar.” /Dr Eric Berg/

“Is Cholesterol Bad for you? 12 Truths About Cholesterol To Survive & Thrive (HDL And LDL Myths) Cholesterol may be the most misunderstood topic ever. HDL is often called good and LDL is called bad, when in fact they are both good. Learn the real truth so you can avoid the pitfalls of how to lower high cholesterol.
For decades we have been warned about eating cholesterol even though dietary cholesterol is irrelevant. The body makes the majority of cholesterol in the body whether you are vegan or carnivore.” /Dr. Sten Ekberg/
Maybe, do you have a Question?
Finally, if anyone were to ask this question after listening to the two lectures: Why do the two chiropractors deal with Keto Diet and Nutrition Science?
The answer is very simple: Because the condition of the bones and joints, like the condition of any of our internal organs, certainly depends primarily on how we feed ourselves.
So once again as Dr. Eric Berg said: What causes inflammation? BEAM! This includes whole grains, starchs, carbs, and hidden sugars in juice, alcohol, and cereal. Instead of avoiding cholesterol, avoid sugar.
