Very interesting and eye opening to say the least! It just about confirms my theory that there is in fact a 'government conspiracy theory' !
The food pyramid for starters is proof that they want you to eat more bad stuff, (sugar, processed & refined foods) which leads to disease & medical problems (diabetes, celiac disease, etc) in turn so that the drug industry can pump out a gazillion types of medications for people to become dependent on...
My husbands family has a history of not just high cholesterol but heart disease too, and his grandfather died after suffering his 17th heart attack. The scary thing is no matter how much we do to try to be healthy, (eat healthy, exercise, try to reduce stress), genetics is against him. My husband suffered his first heart attack at the young age of 33. You read that right, he was 1 month away from his 34th birthday. After his heart attack they put him on cholesterol lowering medication to which he had terrible side effects (muscle pain, mood swings, it made him very 'angry' was the word he used), so he quit taking them. He said he'd rather have high cholesterol than have to keep taking that medication!
I think the bottom line is everybody's different. His grandmothers cholesterol was always over 400, but she never took any medications, for anything, and lived a very long life. Apparently 400 was "normal" for her and her Slovakian ancestors.
