It should come as no surprise to readers of this blog that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease. New research, published in the British Medical Journal, not only confirms this but goes a step further. A team of researchers from around the world analyzed studies involving over 68,000 participants. Their findings?

“We found that several studies reported not only a lack of association between low LDL-C, but most people in these studies exhibited an inverse relationship, which means that higher LDL-C among the elderly is often associated with longer life,” stated researcher David Diamond of the University of South Florida.

Diamond also noted that the findings suggest that high levels may be protective against diseases which are common in the elderly. For example, high levels of cholesterol are associated with a lower rate of neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Other studies have suggested that high LDL cholesterol may protect against some often fatal diseases, such as cancer and infectious diseases, and that having low LDL-C may increase one’s susceptibility to these diseases.

These findings fly in the face of the mainstream (read: corporate media) narrative that high cholesterol will “clog your arteries and give you a heart attack.” We can only hope that, as more research like this is done, it will be the beginning of the end for cholesterol-lowering medication.
