INFLAMMATION NOT LDL
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.
