At a medical conference I asked a Chairman of Medicine of a prestigious university how he would treat a man who had a massive heart attack with a cholesterol of only 140, LDL of 50, normal coronary arteries, and no other risk factors. He said ‘That’s a no brainer – give him a high dose statin.’ I then said, “That man’s cholesterol, LDL and coronary arteries are excellent. It’s probably only inflammation or a clot, so one could use vitamins and other nutrients instead.” He abruptly and arrogantly said ‘No, give him a statin’ and he turned away. This is what Big Pharma does. They pay so-called “thought leaders” to influence other doctors to prescribe their drugs. And these “thought leaders” must not deviate from the written words given to them by Big Pharma.
Foods that increase blood sugar will also increase small LDL particles within two hours. Small LDL particles are oxidized and are glycalated – form complexes with glucose that lead to inflammation and oxidation increasing the risk for cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other chronic illnesses.
Vitamin B3, also known as Niacin has three chemical forms. The Nicotinic Acid form of Niacin lowers cholesterol, lowers LDL, lowers triglycerides, lowers lipoprotein (a), and raises HDL.
