There is something amazing I learned that I just need to mention again.
I guess I find it amazing because I couldn't believe just how ignorant I was.
Everyone talks about how cholesterol is so bad.
"High cholesterol?? Holy shit, run for the hills!"
But if we looked out the window and saw a bunch of cops standing across the street,
we wonder, 'what happened? why are the police here?" We want to know what caused the police
to come in the first place. The police are only there to restore order.
So, cholesterol is the police!!!
Usually, when we hear high cholesterol, folks are put on meds to just remove the cholesterol. It's like trying to shoo away the police without asking why they're there.
When damage to our arteries occur, the body calls the cops. "HELP!! 911!" And cholesterol comes to the rescue, sirens blaring and everything, trying to patch things up.
So, whodunit? If cholesterol isn't the bad guy, who is???
You probably guessed it.
Sugar and starch.
Sugar causes damage to our arteries!!!!! Somebody arrest those assholes!! They're disturbing the peace!!
We need cholesterol. They make up cell walls, they're the forerunners of our sex hormones.
But don't ask me about this stuff. I ain't no expert. Research it y'self!! And always consult with a trusted doctor and naturopath!!
