Ketogenic Low Carbohydrate Diets and the Dangers of Statin Drugs
Todays blog is covering the controversial topic of cholesterol and statins.
Before I get to some cool cholesterol facts, I want to talk about the health & medical information that is passed onto us by those we are told to trust.
How many of you have heard over the years that a high cholesterol count is a predictor of poor health, and that you are going to keel over and have a heart attack if you don’t cut out all the fat from your diet straight away?
I’m guessing most of you have heard it sometime, from somewhere that is supposed to be an authority on health.
The message is not new, it comes from our doctors, magazines and health journals etc, and we trust that the message comes from good research and people who are qualified to interpret it and subsequently share it.
I spend a great deal of my free time reading studies and journal articles about topics that related to my masters study and to areas that I am personally interested in. My constant reading of a diverse range of material from differing sources affords me a greater understanding of the topic I am reading about. It makes sense doesn’t it?
