To me, High cholesterol is a symptom of something gone wrong in the body if it is happening constantly without certain conditions observed.. It can
have many causes. There are foods that help to lower cholesterol levels. The choices of the foods are genetic specific, only testing on oneself can
Moderate levels of exercise also a must. Too strenuous of exercises can actually temporarily increase levels. If a person is out of shape and does
something strenuous it can cause a lot of cholesterol to be released to repair damaged cells, this overload can cause problems sometimes. It is
better to get moderate exercise every day and try to bring it down with diet changes. Saturated fats many times can not be absorbed well while
vegetable fats can more easily be absorbed. In the diet of our ancestors, the meat was leaner but they ate the fat in moderation and made soaps and
lard out of it. Where was their source of vegetable fats? They had none, they did eat limited amounts that are in the various veggies. We have
increased our use of vegetable fats ten fold. Our bodies cannot evolve to it that quick. I like butter a lot better than margarine, it tastes right.
We can be conditioned to like something in a single generation but it takes many generations of sickness to get completely used to it.
Our diet has changed so much in the last fifty years that I can't figure how we are alive. This too much change too fast is the main study I have, it
ties everything together including how remote controls make us sick. It isn't the energy field, it is that we don't get up and switch the channel.
Microwaves make us fat because we lose touch with our food. How many less calories do we burn because of microwave food. Getting out a pot and
steaming or boiling a vegetable is better because we are doing more. Fresh green beans are better than frozen because we have to do something to
prepare them. We can't get coordination from an x-box or remote control, we need to do things all the time. Everything ties together. get out of
the chair you are in and get some coffee. don't combine trips here, you need to do things to help keep your cholesterol down. If you are a
construction worker, relax, you had lots of exercise already. If you are a waitress, I think you have walked enough. If you are an office worker,
you need the walking.
There is a lot more to health than most people know. Navy Doc knows quite a bit about cholesterol truth I sense. People that work hard have elevated
cholesterol because repairs to the body are occurring constantly. Muscles break down and need to be patched. I bet the soldiers in training have
high cholesterol. High Cholesterol is a symptom which needs a lot of thinking to interpret. Just because the levels are elevated doesn't mean you
are at risk some times. But as Navy Doc says, constant elevated levels can take their tolls. Lots of guys died of heart problems in the past, lots
of them seemingly very healthy.
