Your brain is 75% CHOLESTEROL; your brain is also 25% of your entire body’s cholesterol. The white fatty sheath, the myelin sheath, insulates each nerve fiber, and serves to greatly increase the speed by which information travels along the nerve.
NIH found best memory in elderly with highest cholesterol
NIH (National Institutes of Health) researchers found the best memory function was in the elderly in those with the highest levels of cholesterol!
www.FDA.gov | FDA Expands on Statin Risks:
“Cognitive (brain-related) impairment, such as memory loss, forgetfulness and confusion, has been reported by some statin users.”
(They also mentioned other concerns including the increased risk of type 2 diabetes, liver damage, and muscle damage.)
Are we treating the Symptoms and not getting to the Root Cause with Statins?
Doctors discuss the over use of statins:
Since statins deplete CoQ10, can heart failure be an adverse effect because it decreases heart function?
Mitochondria power our cells and Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10 fuels mitochondria. NIH (National Institutes of Health) researchers found a decrease in CoQ10 with statins. Since statins block the pathway responsible for synthesizing CoQ10, is supplementing with CoQ10 enough?
Mayo Clinic | Statin side effects: Weigh the benefits and the risks
“Statin side effects can be uncomfortable, making it seem like the risks outweigh the benefits of these powerful cholesterol-lowering medications. Consider the risks and the benefits.”
Should we stop our liver from making cholesterol with statins or should we stop the cause of inflammation and damage to our arterial walls?
Cholesterol is soft. Cholesterol repairs arteries when there is damage to the arterial walls. Cholesterol is joined by waste products, calcium, and fibrin causing plaque. The hardening and building of plaque, atherosclerosis, is the most common cause of death.
Has anyone died of high cholesterol?
Is the real cause of death, your cholesterol count, or the calcification of the cholesterol? Since calcification is the culprit, how do statins remove cholesterol calcification? Do statins melt plaque away like chelation, the root cause, or just impair the liver? The Eskimos ate whale and seal blubber and didn’t have heart disease until they incorporated our diet.
