  • Two more studies, which considered total blood cholesterol levels and mortality in the elderly, were published in the Lancet almost simultaneously in 1997. In the first, scientists working at the Leiden University Medical Centre found that

    "each 1 mmol/l increase in total cholesterol corresponded to a 15% decrease in mortality".

  • Approximately half of the brain is made up of fats. Dr. F. M.Corrigan and colleagues, writing in 1991 about the relief of Alzheimer's Disease, ask that "strategies for increasing the delivery of cholesterol to the brain should be identified".

    In the fight against Alzheimer's disease, they recommend increasing fat intake.

  • People here won't look at any evidence that doesn't support veganism and are happy with Dr.Greger being a kangaroo scientists jumping to conclusions supporting a vegan hypothesis. That's all they care about.

  • Macadamia nuts, despite being high in saturated fat, also lower cholesterol:

    "Macadamia nut consumption lowers plasma total and LDL cholesterol levels in hypercholesterolemic men."

    I suspect that the fiber has something to do with this. Anytime nature puts something bad in food like saturated fat or fructose, it balances it out with lots of fiber.

  • Excellent Tips for reduce Cholesterol, Thank You sharing this video!

    I was having 260 cholesterol and my daughters were very worried.

    My friend suggested me to use "cholesterol" mobile app which motivated and helped me to have good foods.

    Within 1 month, my cholesterol reduced to 220 now and my family is happy!

  • Just curious:   Guar gum is very high fiber, and a thickener.  Does it have positive benefits of other natural fibers.     Also, Konjac noodles are pure fiber.  Are these helpful, or is it like phyllium powder (not that helpful).

  • My results are just in: LDL; 1,6 mmol/l and HDL; 1 mmol/

    I am told to multiply by 18 that will get me about 29 mg/dl LDL and 18 mg/dl HDL. Is this healthy?

  • Silly question, but I thought that fiber slowed the GI motility, and that the reason soluble fiber lowered cholesterol was because the fiber binds to the cholesterol which can't be absorbed. Can someone please explain? 🙂

  • Fiber is a transporter. Of nutrients and waste. That why out intestines are so long. It helps optimise the ability to heal the body. If you need something, the intestines pic it up…if you dont….the body pushes it right along so that you stat in balance…. it's making so much sense. That why even refined oils and plant proteins are bad. The light just get brighter and brighter. I have always known that fiber was necessary but it's so much more clear.
