Subject: cholesterol has been dropped from dietary guidlines as a food of concern

Pittsburg, Kansas

Cholesterol has been dropped from official dietary guidelines as a food of concern. Most people will not know this because it is not talked about much. Just quietly dropped. Because to admit it would be to admit that dietary guidelines have been wrong for 50 years.

Ivor Cummins this time being interviewed instead of him interviewing someone else or just giving a presentation.

Cholesterol in our diet is not an issue. Cholesterol is essential for life. 80% of our cholesterol is created by the body in the liver with dietary cholesterol only contributing a small amount. If we eat more cholesterol our liver makes less. If we eat less our liver works harder and makes more. The body maintains cholesterol at a level it thinks it needs. Native cholesterol is not a problem. Small, dense, damaged particles are. High blood sugar levels damages cholesterol (actually lipoporteins, LDL, HDL, etc, cholesterol is actually only a passenger). High blood sugar levels caused by insulin resistance is the root of the problem with damaged cholesterol. Avoid high blood sugar spikes to avoid damage.

This is a podcast so can be just listened to. No charts or visuals.
