High cholesterol ‘does not cause heart disease’ new research finds, so treating with statins a ‘waste of time’

Cholesterol does not cause heart disease in the elderly and trying to reduce it with drugs like statins is a waste of time, an international group of experts has claimed.

Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.telegraph.co.uk

Statins have some pretty nasty side effects so why would you take them if they don’t work?

Cholersterol levels are something that fluctuate as the body sees fit and when it is in recovery, cholesterol levels may be higher than the “so-called” safe limit but they are high to compensate for other problems so taking statins is going to interfere with the body trying to do its own job.  

 

The real cause of heart disease is inflammation not cholesterol but I can’t find the reference just now.  I am sure it is bookmarked in Evernote somewhere.

Borrelial infections can be one cause of inflammation so that if this was the cause in you, then you should be taking antibiotics not statins!!!!
