Low Cholesterol Levels Increases Cancer Risk

-American Collegeof Cardiology

For years, the medical establishment' s obsession with lowering cholesterol
to prevent heart disease is causing more harm than good.

If your doctor continues to get you worried about your high cholesterol
levels, here's a bit of news for you...

In fact, your high cholesterol may be protecting you from cancer.

Today, I'll explain the truth behind the myth of cholesterol, and show you
how to achieve heart health naturally.

A new study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology
revealed that driving down cholesterol levels actually increases the risk of

Researchers at theTufts University School of Medicine found that among
people taking "statin" drugs - like Lipitor and Zocor -there was a higher
rate of cancer. Although the link between the drugs and cancer wasn't clear,
there was no doubt that drastically low cholesterol levels correlated to
cancer risk.

The big drug makers continue to sell the notion that the best way to fight
heart disease is to lower LDL levels, the so-called "bad" cholesterol.

Yet 75 percent of people who suffer heart attacks have normal cholesterol

It makes sense that low cholesterol levels are linked to cancer because
cholesterol is one of your body's basic building blocks. You need it to
produce testosterone, to build and repair cell membranes, and to preserve
your nerve cells through the formation of the protective "sheaths" that
cover them.

Starving your body of this critical substance will lead to other health
problems. We already know that extremely low cholesterol levels result in
muscle weakness, fatigue, depression, decreased sex drive, and "brain fog."
This new research shows that there may be even more deadly consequences.

What really matters is not low "bad" cholesterol, but high levels of HDL,the
so-called "good" cholesterol.. As long as you have a high HDL count - 75 to
80, for example - it doesn't matter whether your total cholesterol is 150 or
350. A high HDL will always keep your risk of heart disease extremely low.

So why haven't you heard this already? It may be because there's no drug
that effectively raises good cholesterol levels. You can only effectively
do it naturally.

Consume natural fats.Avoid processed or fast foods containing"Trans" fats-
these man-made substances were never meant for consumption, and your body
doesn't know what to do with them. They wind up clogging your arteries and
putting you on the fast track to heart disease.

Instead, get your fat from free-range or grass-fed animals, eggs, nuts, and
unprocessed vegetable oils. These are some of the healthiest foods you can
eat. (As with all foods, look for organic or minimally processed options
whenever possible.)

The health benefit of these natural fats comes from their balance of Omega-3
and Omega-6 fatty acids. Your body needs both but, as with
cholesterol, they have to be in balance.Omega-3s are great for your heart.
They've been shown to prevent irregular heartbeat, reduce clogging of the
arteries,lower blood pressure, and decrease inflammation in body tissues.

If you stick to eating natural fats, you'll automatically get the right
ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3, which is about 2:1. As an added bonus, you'll
automatically raise your "good" cholesterol levels and you'll reduce your
risk of cancer.

To Your Good Health.
