Do some research

I am back from my vacation, and ready to face the crazy right wing world for a few more weeks. The following post is from Robert Cohen, whose knowledge and judgment I respect. If you haven't visited his web site, there is a link at the end of the post.

I May Act Dumb, But My Body's Plan is Brilliant

Heart disease is America's number-one killer. The choice is yours to either be a victim, or have a change of heart and let food be your medicine.

Every doctor learns in medical school that there are both good and bad cholesterols. Can there really be such a thing as "bad cholesterol? "

Repeat after me:

My body is not dumb.
It does not do stupid things.
My body reacts to the stupid things which my mind directs it to do.
The body was designed with an intelligent plan.

The following is not taught in medical schools.
The following represents the cause and cure of heart disease.
You require simplicity? Here it is...

LDL cholesterol (low density lipoprotein) is manufactured as the human response to continuous heart damage. The internal production and secretion of this so-called "bad cholesterol" is the manner by which the body repairs its own damage.

I refer to LDL cholesterol as the body's own spackle. When picture hooks create holes in living room walls, one goes to a hardware store to purchase a can of spackle. That substance fills the holes. You then take a piece of sandpaper and file down the spackle until the wall is smooth.

Many events are responsible for heart damage. The largest heart study in American history (Castelli's Framingham Heart Study) has identified sulfur-based amino acids (from eating animal protein) as the key to the etiology of heart disease. So, the body's brilliantly programmed response to heart disease is to neutralize the damage caused by the ingestion of animal protein. Your body's response is to manufacture more LDL cholesterol which acts to repair the damage.

The higher the cholesterol reading, the greater is the damage that must be repaired. So, what do naive meat eaters do when faced with high cholesterol rates? They seek advice from well meaning, but ignorant doctors.

Doctors prescribe cholesterol- lowering drugs, which take away the body's mechanism by which the damage is repaired. In other words, cholesterol- lowering drugs make things worse. Why not simply eliminate those factors which cause the damage? Because most doctors are not taught to think. They are taught to diagnose and prescribe medications. (There are exceptions to this "ignorant doctor" rule. They include Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, John McDougall, MD, Joel Fuhrman, MD, Michael Greger, MD, and many others.)

Animal protein (meat and dairy) contains an abundance of sulfur-based amino acids. The worst foods to eat (the highest levels of sulfur) are chicken and eggs. You do not want the rotten egg smell infusing into each of your body's cells. One must neutralize the resulting acid. To do so, calcium is leached from where it is stored: in the skeletal system. For this reason, those living in meat-eating nations have the highest rates of bone disease.

So, what can you do if you have high cholesterol and hope to prevent or reverse heart disease? The heart-healthy answer is to change your diet and furnish your body with clean fuel. Stop the damage immediately and your body will have less of a need to manufacture large amounts of the inappropriately named "bad" cholesterol.
