AND OTHER HEALTH ISSUES

aim of this sharing
AIM OF THIS SHARING
  • To create an awareness that researchers find that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease
  • To create awareness of the dangers of statin cholesterol-lowering drugs
  • To share helpful health tips
cholesterol myth

CHOLESTEROL MYTH

IS HIGH CHOLESTEROL THE CAUSE OF ISCHAEMIC HEART DISEASE ?

because many studies show
BECAUSE MANY STUDIES SHOW
  • There is no linear relation between cholesterol levels and heart attack or stroke risk
  • This has been known for decades
  • Despite a massive use of statin cholesterol drugs over the past two decades, the incidence of Cardiovascular disease hasn’t changed.
lipid hypothesis of heart disease
LIPID HYPOTHESIS OF HEART DISEASE
  • First proposed by Russian researcher David Kritchevsky in 1954, later by Ancel Keys
  • Rabbits fed with cholesterol had heart disease induced
  • Feeding the rabbits vegetable oils lowered cholesterol ( albeit temporarily), the supposedly cause of heart disease.
  • In effect, it meant: Cholesterol = heart disease
  • This hypothesis is irrelevant today in the light of findings by many researchers
cholesterol myth 1
CHOLESTEROL MYTH 1
  • High fat foods causes heart disease
  • High cholesterol causes heart disease
  • High fat foods raise blood cholesterol
  • Cholesterol blocks arteries
  • Animal studies prove the diet-heart idea that diet affects heart disease
  • Lowering cholesterol will lenghten your life
cholesterol myth 2
CHOLESTEROL MYTH 2
  • Polyunsaturated oils are good for you
  • The cholesterol campaign (to have people reduce their cholesterol levels) is based on good evidence
  • All scientists support the diet-heart idea

ALL THE ABOVE STATEMENTS ARE NOT TRUE (backed by solid scientific evidence).

cholesterol facts by uffe ravnskov md ph d
CHOLESTEROL FACTS BY UFFE RAVNSKOV MD, Ph.D
  • Cholesterol is a substance vital to the cells of all mammals
  • Many studies have shown that people with low cholesterol are just as atherosclerotic as people with high cholesterol
  • When you eat little cholesterol your body produces more than the usual amount; when you eat much, your body produces less
cholesterol facts 2
CHOLESTEROL FACTS 2
  • There is no evidence that too much animal fat and cholesterol in the diet promotes atherosclerosis or heart attacks
  • Many of these facts have been presented in scientific journals and books for decades, but rarely told to the public
cholesterol facts 3
CHOLESTEROL FACTS 3
  • The reason why laymen, doctors and most scientists have been misled is because opposing and disagreeing results are systematically ignored or misquoted in the scientific press
  • There are benefits of having high cholesterol
facts
FACTS
  • Drug companies state that their statin drugs lower heart risk by 36%
  • This is a manipulation of statistics by them
  • The truth is, it falls just one percent !
  • In fact, taking vitamin C and E will reduce risk by a much greater percentage
  • 50 % of people who die of heart attacks have normal cholesterol levels
what is chronic inflammation
WHAT IS CHRONIC INFLAMMATION ?
  • IT IS A GOOD THING GONE BAD
  • While acute inflammation is a protective and healing mechanism which lasts for a short time, chronic inflammation, which can go on for years, is a disease
  • Inflammation means the body’s response to harmful stimuli in which a cascade of event is initiated to try to contain the harm.
chronic inflammation conclusions supported by extensive research and clinical evidence
CHRONIC INFLAMMATION(conclusions supported by extensive research and clinical evidence)
  • Impairs endothelial function and vascular lining
  • Increases platelet activation and clotting
  • Depletes intrinsic anti-oxidants
  • Generates free radicals
  • Delays wound healing and tissue regeneration
  • Promotes cell aging and premature cell death
  • Supresses immune response
chronic inflammation is also linked to
CHRONIC INFLAMMATION IS ALSO LINKED TO
  • Diabetes
  • Allergies
  • Hypertension
  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Obesity
  • Sinusitis
  • Alzheimer’s disease
causes of chronic inflammation
CAUSES OF CHRONIC INFLAMMATION
  • Polyunsaturated vegetable oils like safflower, sunflower, corn, peanut, soy
  • High carbohydrate low protein diets
  • Refined sugar
  • Trans fats
  • Pesticides, etc
  • STRESS
anti inflammatory measures
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY MEASURES
  • REVISE YOUR DIET: cut trans fats, refined carbs; replace with omega-3s, healthy oils, unrefined carbohydrates like anti-oxidant rich vegetables and fruits
  • Add omega-3s
  • Get a good night’s sleep
  • Supplement with a high-quality multivitamin/mineral
  • Take probiotics e.g.yogurt
  • MANAGE STRESS !
advanced glycation end products ages
ADVANCED GLYCATION END-PRODUCTS (AGEs)
  • Generate a great amount of free radicals
  • Extensive free radical damage exists in all cases of heart disease, strokes, diabetes, hypertension, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease
  • AGEs and the free radicals they produce trigger intense inflammatory reactions
  • Belly fat secrete large amounts inflammatory chemicals.
  • A diet high in sugar and refined carbohydrates dramatically increases the growth of belly fat
  • Produced by high sugar and refined carbohydrate intake.
  • Oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids a main cause.
what are free radicals
WHAT ARE FREE RADICALS ?
  • Highly unstable atoms or molecules
  • Oxidation produces free radicals
  • Damage important molecules such as DNA or lipids or other parts of the cell
  • Smoking one of the causes of free radicals
  • Free radicals responsible for many diseases including heart disease, cancer, arthritis
  • Contribute to aging process
beware of these oils
BEWARE OF THESE OILS !
  • Corn oil
  • Safflower oil
  • Sunflower oil
  • Soybean oil
  • Peanut oil
  • Canola oil
vegetable oils
VEGETABLE OILS
  • Pro-inflammatory
  • Long chain fatty acids, very fragile and unstable
  • Turn rancid easily when exposed to heat, light and air
  • Even light frying or exposure to strong sunlight would oxidise them
  • In fact becomes rancid at factory level
good oils
GOOD OILS
  • The best – Virgin Coconut Oil
  • Grape seed oil ?
  • Olive oil
  • Palm oil

trans fat
TRANS FAT

DEFINITION

  • A type of oil normally made by reacting vegetable with hydrogen (they are then called partially hydrogenated vegetable oils).
  • Trans fats are formed during the heating and frying of oils at high temperatures and during processing of edible oils.
  • They are linked to the clogging of arteries and heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and cancer
  • Even very tiny amounts are harmful
trans fat found in
TRANS FAT FOUND IN:

mental attitude
MENTAL ATTITUDE

  • Anger can raise the risk of a second heart attack by a shocking 700%
william james
WILLIAM JAMES
  • “The greatest discovery of this generation was the ability we have to change our environment by changing our mental attitude.”
  • Similarly, it is a lot easier for us to change our own individual attitude, lifestyle, and eating habits than to change the commercial policies of fast-food industries or those of food manufacturers.
food for thoughts
FOOD FOR THOUGHTS
  • ONE QUARTER OF WHAT YOU EAT KEEPS YOU ALIVE.
  • THREE QUARTERS KEEP YOUR DOCTOR ALIVE
  • YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT (AND THINK)
