Cholesterol - the 3 part series

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

Part 1
This week I am going to embark on a series of articles about cholesterol.  We are so misinformed about this necessary molecule.  Conventional medicine, based on fabricated data, has brought us to this point. Everyone is scared of cholesterol.  We’re told to check it every year, your health and life insurance premiums are partly based on this number.  It’s reported as a killer of thousands of people.  We’re excoriated to get your number down, no matter what it is.  I’ve had patients with a cholesterol number of 190 told they need to watch it, and were even prescribed a statin drug!

In this article, let’s take a look back in time to where this nonsense started, how it has been propagated over the years, and then see how medical “studies” are abused and misreported to mean whatever the guy paying for the study wants it to.
