Are Cholesterol levels really that important?

DID YOU KNOW?
“Sadly, all too often, scientists (who should know better) fall in love with a hypothesis and set up an experiment to confirm it instead of trying to falsify it. Then when their machinations fail and the experiment is a bust, they try to put a good face on and make like the experiment really showed what they wanted it to show all along. Just as there is no doubt a bias in the mainstream news media, sad to say, there is also a bias in the mainstream medical scientific media. Most academic nutritional researchers hold [the following] near and dear to their hearts; Eating saturated fat = elevated cholesterol = heart disease.” Dr Michael R. Eades, M.D.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast provides you with the energy and nutrients that lead to increased concentration in the classroom. Hunger sets in long before it’s time for lunch, but because it’s not convenient to eat properly, many people who have not eaten breakfast snack on foods that are high in fat and sugar. People who skip breakfast are unlikely to make up their daily requirement for some vitamins and minerals that a simple breakfast would have provided.

DID YOU KNOW?
Fried foods make up a large percentage of the diet of all Mediterranean countries.  Here’s the breakdown according to the types of foods the Spanish study participants were most likely to be frying: 24% fish, 22% meat, 21% potatoes, and 11% eggs.  Fast foods are generally prepared by deep frying with oils used several times, and are consumed mostly away from home. In Spain, fried foods are consumed both at and away from home, and both deep frying and pan frying are used. Moreover, we can assume that oil is not reused many times for foods consumed at home.

What REALLY causes heart disease

DID YOU KNOW?
“Animal fats contain less than 20% omega-6 and are much less likely to cause inflammation than the supposedly healthy oils labelled polyunsaturated. Forget the ‘science’ that has been drummed into” your head for decades. The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease is non-existent. The science that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol is also very weak. Since we now know that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, the concern about saturated fat is even more absurd today.” Dr. Dwight Lundell, M.D., Heart Surgeon
