  • Who the fook is that guy fitness something shuuuut up man , how can you be entitled to speak something out of your profession. And also when that something 'statin use ' is been proved by many meta analysis of hundreds of randomized controlled prospective , retrospective trials . Dear layperson cholesterol can be oxidized into a reactive form which is forming plaques in your arteries . Statins primarily block liver production of cholesterol.

    • Thank you for adhering to science, but you have two drugs mixed up. *Statins* work by inhibiting an enzyme in the liver that is responsible for producing cholesterol. *Ezetimibe* works by inhibiting intestinal absorption of cholesterol from foods we eat.

  • Don’t listen to this guy. There is no single greater risk factor for heart disease than LDL cholesterol levels. Saturated fat raises LDL. Dietary cholesterol raises LDL too, but has a minimal impact on some people and a major impact on others.

    • @ömer özgür çelik no it's not a joke? I've worked in the hospitals Renal dept for 20 years. The problems we see is when statins can cause rhabdomyolysis, which breaks down the muscle creatine causing severe kidney damage. I've seen it happen many times, though it's not very common

    • @Kyle Ferguson Fair play, I can own up to my mistakes. I was getting mixed up with the whole doing work as a patent clerk, and in my haste to fight a stupid comment I forgot the rest and made an even stupider one. But one moronic misfire doesn't invalidate the rest of my comment. The research is out there for anyone with the drive to learn. Not for you? Fine, no one is forcing you to listen, and I agree that anyone who bases their understanding of science purely off the words of some guy on the internet is dumb. But you argued the man, and you did so from a place of ignorance to what he knows or whether he had anything to back his position. So I'm not the only one saying stupid things.

    • Einstein didn't have a science background either. Why do we listen to him? Professional bodies often get stale in their thinking, and breakthroughs often come from those attacking the problem from a different angle. As it is, this isn't something Mark came up with himself. Nor is he ignoring decades of research. Rather, his views are formed from decades of medical research. Mark was a victim of medical guidelines and it was quite literally destroying him. His body was breaking down despite doing everything *right*. So he looked into it himself and found a body of contradictory work, which helped him regain his health. He keeps up to date on the literature and changes his stance based on new findings. While he may not have a formal medical background, he has put in enough work over the years that to say he doesn't have one at all is misguided. He is also in touch with a community of medical professionals who through their practice have come to similar conclusions, and are working to improve patients' lives where others in their profession have failed. If you want to be sceptical, by all means do. Scientific scepticism is healthy. But appeal to authority in an attempt to discredit someone you know nothing about, on a subject he knows quite well, is just plain silly.

    • @Guillermo Romer Yes. Of which epidemiological and animal studies are quite low. Our current health recommendations are one of the reasons for our current health crisis. I used to follow recommendations and had mediocre health. Moved over to a low carb diet (with fruits/vegetables), no wheat products, no processed carbs, no added sugar, and my heath improved drastically. I was consuming more that the recommended levels of saturated fat, cholesterol, and salt, and yet my health has improved drastically (I have had plenty of blood tests). My blood glucose levels stabilized and I was able to keep weight off. I was able to build more muscle. My resting heart rate and blood pressure stabilized. Our current recommendations are a sham

    • Do you know how difficult it is to force a massive institution to reverse its position? Their recommendations are based on shotty studies from many years ago. They continue to attempt to justify it with crappy epidemiological studies and rat studies and the rest, however I have yet to see a single double-blind study (the gold standard) testing these claims that doesn't support the side of Mark Sisson. Our health agencies don't have much credibility.

    • @turtlemastertimmy Had a look at the first 3-4, I see some weight loss references specific to individuals with high insulin secretion (or pre-type 2 diabetics), however, no reference to the effects of high cholesterol/saturated fat diets on both serum cholesterol and the development of atherosclerosis. I'll have a deep dive into the rest later.

The reason cholesterol is no longer looked at as being the main cause of cardiovascular disease is because of the efficacy of statin treatment.

    • Use your head, if cholesterol was bad for you then we wouldn't be able to eat fish, eggs, milk or any meats because they're all loaded with cholesterol. 95% at least of fruit and vegetables are man made in the grocery stores. Our ancestors from anywhere in the world wouldn't have been eating any of that shit prior to 200 years ago. Also breast milk is loaded with saturated fat and cholesterol for a reason. Your brain is cholesterol and saturated fat, try going vegan and within a year you'll start to experience major brain fog and similar problems. I would know, as I unfortunately did that.

  • I have chronic leg pain thanks to statins. I now have to take pain meds for it. Even having been of if statins for almost 6 years the leg pain is still there and getting worse. I’ve also have had my distal tendon rupture and a calf and bicep muscle tear. No doubt due to the damage statins have done to my muscles. Thanks to the opioid crisis, it’s real fun getting the pain meds, but statins are prescribed like candy. I take cocq10 and extra vitamin d. There are so many stories of people that as they get older can’t walk due to damage from statins. I hope that doesn’t happen to me. Statins serve a purpose, but once I was diagnosed that they caused the muscle pain, I was amazed as to how many people this has happened to. Im lucky that I don’t have the rhamdomyalisis (sp).

    • @Ryan Thank you much. I’m taking a non statin drug that is keeping my cholesterol in check. Unfortunately I have issues on both sides of my family that doesn’t help. I just wanted to let people know about the muscle pain, it’s much more prevalent than they tell you. Thank you though. Take care.

    • Diet has been show to be able to reduce cholesterol to a point to where there's a chance you could potentially get off the statin, assuming your genetic baseline levels aren't too elevated. Whole food plant based diet w/o added oil is the specific diet shown to benefit heart disease patients, even reversing it in some cases. - one of many studies showing the effects Look into it if you're interested, either way hope you get better

  • As a teen in the 90s I noticed that people in the past, and alo farmers seemed to eat way more fatty foods, but they weren't fat. I asked if butter, lard etc were so fattening why didn't it make those folks obese? If it was so unhealthy why were those folks not only healthy, but also in better physical condition? There were other factors such as they were more physically active. They also didn't intake nearly as much sugar.

  • Brain and nerve tissue are made of cholesterol. All hormones, not just sex hormones, are made of cholesterol. Not only does the body produce cholesterol, it extracts it from our waste and recycles it. Seems like the body goes through a lot of effort for a "dangerous" chemical like cholesterol.

  • The company that made the first statin also made viagra. when you lower the cholesteral in men, they lose the ability to get boners because of low testosterone. (which is the least of the problems you have with low cholesteral as having low cholesteral is even more dangerous than AIDS) You don't have to be an illuminati level conspiricy theorists to suspect that the push for doctors to give people statin is to increase sales of viagra. But HEY! Thats just a theory, a GAME THEORY!

  • The reason cholesterol is demonized is because initially they did not understand the mechanism. Cholesterol forms hard plaque when it repairs the vein or artery that is damaged. What kills you is the soft plaque You Don't See

  • Here’s what’s dangerous about people like this guy. Just because this system works for him doesn’t mean it works for everyone. Also - if doctors agree that cholesterol is actually good for you, why are they still trying to lower cholesterol levels. He’s possibly saying the truth but it would be great if he could have a medical professional back up his claim. I never like when a person uses the cop out “I’m not a doctor but...” if you’re not a doctor then don’t state your opinion as facts unless you have an actual doctor back up your claim.
