Reply Jeff Silverberg says: September 19, 2018 at 12:39 pm Medical studies are changing all the time. I love how doctors are always saying “trust me”. Whenever someone says that, I immediately don’t trust them. Reply James Dees says: September 19, 2018 at 12:50 pm "Egg cholesterol is bad for you" egg cholesterol is good cholesterol" cholesterol doesn't have anything to do with heart disease" does anyone actually know anything? Reply Jules Tempest says: September 19, 2018 at 12:51 pm The new study is correct! Cholesterol is good for you. Statin research is all funded by big pharma. Reply Danno says: September 19, 2018 at 1:05 pm Why not invite the authors of the study? Attacking the study does not prove the study is without merit. Reply Benedict Voon says: September 19, 2018 at 1:07 pm Peoples in the Wholistic Realm has already talking about this no evidence high cholesterol causes heart disease many years ago. You have been played by big pharma and FDA. Reply Mouse Bones says: September 19, 2018 at 1:19 pm Meat and diary. Reply QDeeDra Ældæg says: September 19, 2018 at 1:20 pm Omg seriously wtf !! Reply Triratna says: September 19, 2018 at 1:20 pm Hello, double cheese burger. Reply Will Carter says: September 19, 2018 at 1:29 pm Dear god…of course cholesterol doesnt CAUSE heart disease. Cholesterol is produced by your cells to REPAIR themselves. The reason high cholesterol can be problematic is because its a sign that your cardiovascular system is being damaged. Its a symptom! For fucks sake…correlation doesnt imply causation. Thank government run public education for desteoying the collective intelligence of this country for the past 50 years. Its ALWAYS been the sugar. Its always beem the carbs, its always been the corn syrup. I feel lile im taking crazy pills sometime. Reply Jalois Cox says: September 19, 2018 at 1:57 pm Doctors are denying this study because doctors are pill pushers. They legally deal drugs that have no more research behind their release than this study. The research study on cholesterol was done by drug companies. My husband was told by heart doctors and surgeons, back when statins first came out, that high cholesterol does not cause heart disease. In his line of work, he came into contact with several of these doctors, who all said there was no evidence to support the use of these drugs. He was told that high cholesterol was the body's natural response to inflammation. Their advise was to treat the inflammation, and if his arteries became clogged, take a little red yeast rice. Fifteen to 20 years later ultrasound showed a 40% blockage in the right carotid artery. He started taking red yeast rice, and six months later the artery was totally clear! In my opinion, big pharma is as great a risk to people as the diseases they claim to treat. Reply Libtards got Trumped says: September 19, 2018 at 2:03 pm When it comes to understanding the human body, how all the variables are influenced and how to correct them bodybuilders are light-years ahead of Drs. If it has to do with hormones, blood profile, cholesterol and blood pressure, thyroid or manipulation of dietary intake for specific results that is where you need to start researching. They are all like walking science experiments with their own bodies. It's not just stick a needle use some steroids. Everything in the body operates in a feedback loop cycle and as steroid doses increases so does that the need to control more of the variables to the point where they're controlling everything in their body. Thyroid, estrogen, progesterone, serotonin, dopamine receptors, insulin, growth like factors, hgh, carbs, protein, fats, sodium, potassium, and more. Any one of those gets out of whack it throws everything off and can become a nightmare trying to get everything back in order so just the fact that they're competing and professional level means that they are very in tune with all of the processes and how they influence their With that being said our body uses cholesterol to make hormones and is also used to form the membranes of our cells. That's why burn victims will need to be administered large doses of cholesterol. The lipid profile of our blood is largely influenced by the hormones. Take for example if a bodybuilder uses a estrogen blocker and it reduces the estrogen level too much it will cause his cholesterol to increase and also for his joints to become a key as it decreases the lubrication around your joints. I'm not suggesting people go and start taking all kinds of steroids or anything but if you want to learn ways to influence specific issues like I've mentioned above then bodybuilders are the way to go now doctors. It's like the difference between learning how to drive a car from an instructor or from a professional race car driver. Reply D Silva says: September 19, 2018 at 2:07 pm Big farma trying to shut down clear and open studies. Pay attention how he complicates the simplicity of the actual studies, by ranting on about the same bs that big farma put out. He said 0 facts about the studies that is incorrect.

Reply shrek is love says: September 19, 2018 at 2:24 pm The doctor is so worried his statin gravy train will end. He's lying his ass off about what the study claims. Reply Andrew Emerson says: September 19, 2018 at 2:37 pm Everybody should go keto and eat all the healthy fats you can. Sugar and carbs are the real enemy. Reply Cruze Missile says: September 19, 2018 at 2:51 pm All the sugarcane grown in this country is GMO and if you think you can avoid the round up by buying organic then think again because they harvest organic crops by killing them sanding up with round up a week before harvest. Round up is an antibiotic and a desiccant and it destroys your gut. Statin drugs inhibit the growth of lipid cells in your body and your brain cells are lipid cells. No wonder why so many people have Alzheimer disease!! Reply B. Eder says: September 19, 2018 at 3:15 pm White Rice????Go tell China, Japan, India, that Rice is bad for you. I lost 45 lbs.

Reply WeDontThink says: September 19, 2018 at 6:16 pm I did diet and exercise for over a year – No red meat, etc. LDL went to 235. That's bad. Started Atorvastatin at 10 mg. LDL went to 135.

Shame on Fox Business for blocking the release of real info by putting this guy on. ugh. Dr. Berg has the info, if you want to know the truth. Reply EgadsNo says: September 20, 2018 at 7:17 am From the same geniuses that brought you the food pyramid, the low cholesterol diet are now hoping everyone forgets all of that and remembers statins which cause more harm then good. Good luck exercising after going on those when they destroy muscle function. Reply mspixiedust100 says: September 20, 2018 at 7:31 am I eat butter and anything I want.

Reply Carisma Zamora says: September 20, 2018 at 4:30 pm I like this news Reply 13Gladius 2 says: October 5, 2018 at 5:42 am Shills for big pharma need for cholesterol to remain high on the list of evils Reply Bat Lover says: November 5, 2018 at 5:19 am These people are full of shit. Cholesterol is NOT bad. Our liver makes cholesterol. Why would it do that if it was bad? That's just stupid. Further obesity can be caused by other things such as medication, thyroid diseases, etc. Also statins are deadly. Statins get rid of all cholesterol. Our bodies NEED cholesterol. They want people to think that cholesterol (which our liver makes) is of the devil and horrible, so we take their deadly statin drugs. http://www.zoeharcombe.com/the-knowledge/we-have-got-cholesterol-completely-wrong/ https://www.diabetes.co.uk/news/2017/apr/artery-clogging-saturated-fat-myth-challenged-in-worlds-top-medical-journal-98765670.html Reply Megan R says: November 7, 2018 at 4:35 pm I’ve heard doctors mention inflammation (many times from infections in the mouth such as root canals which are many times infected without symptoms) can cause the body to produce cholesterol as a healing mechanism. I can’t recall the doctors who mentioned this but some that are in the circle of same thought would be Dr Ben Lynch, Dr Axe, and other natural health doctors; meaning they don’t believe in prescribing pills to heal the body first off but believe in healing through detoxes and nutrition. I’ve been type one diabetic myself for 30 years now (pretty much all my life) and have not one complication from it. I don’t take any “extra” prescriptions besides the needed insulin and I contribute it to healthy eating, detoxing and taking certain supplements. Reply Larry Finley says: November 17, 2018 at 1:26 am I don't understand why he bad mouthed white rice? A billion or so Asians thrived on it with no obesity and almost no heart disease. I was Atkins/Paleo for 20 years and then after 3 stents, quad bypass, gout I have switched to whole plant foods 95% like the Okinawans who are long lived, healthier, and eat a high good carb diet (lots of sweet potatoes). I have stopped taking my statin. My diabetes dr was shocked that by eating lots of potatoes and greens, fruit that my a1c dropped from 7.0 to a healthy 5.8 in 3 months! It doesn't matter if you "feel" fine on a Paleo or Keto diet you need to think about the long term consequences (heart disease, stroke, cancer, gout, lupus, etc) of these deadly diets, its not a game, its your life you are gambling with. Please, please, at least look at Dr Fuhrman and Dr Greger videos (he backs everything up with superior research).

When a doctor prescribe a statin drug which costs $500 or more (6 months supply) he ia nor going to charge you the cost price. Besides charging for consultation many doctors add an extra 10 to 20 percent to cost of drugs. He cannot earn much by giving you advise on diet (such as cutting down on carbohydrates which are the real culprits in heart disease). There is plenty of incentive for doctors to prescribe expensive drugs. Reply goku son says: May 3, 2019 at 4:17 pm I reported this video for spam and misleading. This exact misinformation is taking lives by the minute. Pharmaceutical industry is a monster eating people alive to get money. These doctors got no shame when they tried to cover up these facts with lies so people keep believeing their lies Reply Trina Lipka says: June 6, 2019 at 3:51 pm Another example of how main stream physicians are TOTALLY uninformed. Statins make a 1% reduction in CV risk for every 100 people treated. Actual Risk reduction NOT relative risk reduction…If being brain-washed for 40+ years on the "SAD" standard American Diet is working then WHY are we getting fatter, sicker, and more diabetes????? There are studies showing that people live LONGER with HIGHER cholesterol levels. I heard an analogy recently: "Congratulations Mr. Smith, you have the lowest cholesterol in the Dementia Ward"…LOL. Cholesterol is protective in nature. Inflammation should be discussed more and how to eliminate that, not cholesterol! Boo Ancel Keys for starting this crap years ago…! Reply Starry Night says: June 22, 2019 at 11:53 pm This doctor just CONTRADICTED himself by Pointing to HIGH CARBS, SUGARS causing heart disease. Well those are NOT Fats, "cholesterols" WHERE STATINS ATTACK THE LIVER TO STOP THE PRODUCTION OF CHOLESTEROL!! -Nothing wrong with cholesterol itself. -IT IS IN FACT THE SUGARS THAT DAMAGE THE POOR HDL ON THE WAY BACK TO THE LIVER, (to be recycled, etc.); whereas the LDL just DELIVERED, via the LipoProtein "carrier" through the blood, to ALL THE TISSUES the Very Necessary, or 2nd Most Important Element next to Blood, Cholesterol to all our 3 TRILLION CELLS. How can every person be defective where our body each day makes 3,000 mg of Cholesterol?– The only thing wrong with cholesterol is that it is highly suseptable to Oxidation. … Find what is CAUSING OXIDATION instead of STRIPPING OUT THE Cholesterol. AND STATINS GO AFTER ALL CHOLESTEROL, Not just the Oxidized LDL!!! :[ -Statins do NOT help nor Impact Triglycerides… those are the culprit, Insulin, etc.– What oxidized our Cholesterol; stress, nastly industrial-already-OXIDIZED VEGETABLE OILS: corn, safflower, CANOLA… all these are inflammatory Omega-6s. Reply Starry Night says: June 23, 2019 at 3:39 am MECHANISM OF ACTION OF STATIN DRUGS T hey work by typically lowering an enzyme in the liver, this enzyme not only reduces the production cholesterol but also a MOST VITAL NUTRIENT Co-Enzyme Q-10!!! When you lower the product of C0-Enzyme Q-10 accelerates the rate at which you AGE, because Co-Q10 recycles anti-oxidants, Vit.C & Vit. E. [increasing your risk of certain malignancies…] Reply You Tuber says: July 14, 2019 at 4:53 pm Cholesterol is the body's fireman showing up at the scene of the fire, a fire caused by inflammation caused by consumption of carbs and unnatural processed foods and 'vegetable' (seed – soy, safflower, corn, sunflower) oils, dental infections, etc. Cholesterol is not the problem (and statins thus in no way a solution), bad nutrition in the form of carbs (which are sugars), processed foods, resulting excess insulin, and seed oils are the problem. US medical profession and FDA/USDA failing millions. Reply Jose Olivieri says: August 14, 2019 at 1:54 pm let the brainwashing continue. Very effective delivery of half-truths and outright lies. The consumer ends up, confused unless he or she seriously investigates. I I am referring to the people on TV. Reply Salvatore Parascandolo - G-mail says: August 22, 2019 at 5:44 am Lying doctor. Statins are the only drugs that can be quit immefiately with no harm.In fact, quitters feel much better in a few days. Reply Mark Littlewood says: September 15, 2019 at 7:37 am Did not supply a shred of evidence to back up his cholesterol and statin mantra, he is a doctor, he said it so it must be so. Research shows that for primary care statins increase life span by 3 days and for secondary by 4 days. Research also shows that a Med' diet knocks statin results out of the ball park. So the choice is yours take a statin and run the risk of T2 Diabetes, joint pain, Dementia and muscle waste to mention a few side effects or eat a delicious Med' based diet……………….DOH!

Meaning he was lying about what he just said. He doesn't believe what he just said. That plant-based meal he was saying. Why would the doctor lie about that? Maybe because the Rothschild is owned by that corrupt family who owns the big pharma, news station and the rest of the world.
