    But doesn't the body compensates for cholesterol intake by reducing the amount synthesized?

    good and bad cholesterol is BS to begin with, first of all because hdl and ldl are not cholesterol but transport-molecules for it and secondly cholesterol serves important functions in the body. f.e. for maintaining structures and the stress-hormonesystem(energy-management). Cholesterol is manufactured >>by the body itself<< and cholesterol taken in by food can only influence cholesterol level by around 5% so dont get to nervous about it. More over that the artery-covering just consists to 1% of cholesterol so you got the wrong adjuster bolt to play with. Your indoctrinated doctors are mainly preachers for big pharma. The masses can be programmed and guess it: it is actually done.  We are tought how to be good patients in the disease management system.

    Eggs are clearly nutritional. They have been eaten by mankind for 1000s of years. Eat whatever you like in moderation. And remember, the makers of these videos are "selling" their ideas. By searching the internet you can find "info" to support whatever you want to believe. Just use common sense. Don't over eat and be physically active…it's that simple (useless you have a medical genetic disorder that needs special care).

    Wish I never ate eggs, they sometimes made me feel ill in my stomach just thinking about eating them. Now that I know about all the cruelty involved producing the eggs and the health detriments I am glad I no longer eat them. Paul McCartney first made me aware of the cruelty in the industry.

    Cholesterol is essential for testosterone production! In turn testosterone helps HDL to remove excess cholesterol from the arterial wall and transport it to the liver for disposal.

    I love most of your information, especially the way you pick out and summarised the info, which is easy to understand. However, when doing research we all know just looking at information from one source, is like putting all the eggs in one basket, if that basket fail all the eggs go down with it.  

    Till now cholesterol is identified as a substance with high correlation of whatever health risk or diseases it were measured against. Is it really the caused of those disease or health risk? Have anyone asked what if there is zero cholesterol in our body, will we survive? What caused ED? Just stress, gene or whatever that was found correlated? Well I never stop eating eggs, I have a history of high cholesterol since young because my mother with no education only know we need eggs for our healthy growth. Am I still healthy? Yes of course, I stop checking cholesterol level because just like HIV test are all smoke number that those in white coat, who are paid by huge pharm, used to put us on medication the huge pharm produced. No thanks! Btw I listen to my body. This is the real chemical lab that only tells me what is good or bad for me. Is my life, so I use my own common sense. Btw I go back on a high saturated fat diet, after knowing sugar & high carb are the REAL culprit and CAUSE of failing health in most people. My brain thanks to the eggs, which contain both saturated fat and high cholesterol, is actually functioning extremely well in the area of common sense. However we cannot measure common sense.  

    But whatever you are doing is still commendable and I appreciate very much your afford and time. I know you are doing it for a good cause.

    Eggs for me were the easiest to leave behind. I keep hearing from friends and co workers how eggs are so healthy with good cholesterol and vitamins and yet when i show them the evidence they just rattle off by saying "My doctor said cholesterol level is normal" when the person saying it was underweight and didn't eat eggs every day. With those factors its no wonder if your cholesterol is low, but in Estonia health is increasingly considered a problem these days and people start rattling off the paleo diet which i call BS for the most part.

Based on my TG/HDL ratio being .53 which being below 2.0 means most all of my LDL Cholesterol is large particle, my doctor said I should, on paper, outlive anyone my current age of 56.

    Yes, eggs intake increases cholesterol but increased risk of heart diseases from Cholesterol (LDL-C)is debunked anyway. It's the particle number(LDL-P) which causes the problem. and LDL-P count has nothing to do with egg consumption.

    Could you explain to me why cholesterol is a main factor in CAD? Vegans still die form heart attacks and some Keto and Paleo live of cholesterol and don't die left and right. I mean, how come vegans bring the cholesterol factor all the time into their videos.
    If vegans still die from CAD then SOMETHING else is the main factor, isn't that right? From what I understand cholesterol is A factor but not the MAIN factor.
    If your liver produces 70% of your total cholesterol and then if you have some inflammation it doesn't matter if your cholesterol is low or high.
    Am I the only one to question that? All I can see is a bunch of people wanting their diet to succeed over the other. That is so sad, honestly.
    People say vegans are annoying but so are Keto people too.

    Even in another video you mentioned some other factors like Homocysteine, Lipoprotein A and Omega3/6 ratios. If vegans have low cholesterol levels and they still die, it's not because they need to lower even more their cholesterol, it's because cholesterol IS NOT THE MAIN FACTOR in CAD.

    Haha, I see through your bullshit Greger, thanks to Dr. Peter Attia’s blog. He explains that CVD risk is associated with particle number (LDL-P), not total cholesterol (LDL-C). Larger particles, equally dangerous as they may be, means there are fewer particles, and fewer particles means less risk for heart disease.

    As usual the fine doctor only presents one side of the argument.

The doctor maybe entertaining but he is perhaps the most biased researcher I have ever encountered.

    Why does your body make cholesterol if it is so bad?

    Reply
  73. StrategicMadness Posted on February 19, 2019 at 10:21 pm

    Getting more and more confused on the whole LDL issue. Have heard that LDL is what the body uses to transport cholesterol which every cell in the body needs. Once it drops off the cholesterol is becomes smaller and denser and if a protein or sugar molecule doesn't get attached – which can cause a problem – it gets recycled to the liver. The LDL transport mechanism is also used to bring cholesterol to damaged arteries for repair. And then there is this…Although high levels of small, dense LDL can increase your risk of heart disease, its ability to cause heart disease independently of other factors (such as diabetes and high trans fat intake) has not been fully established. Because of these factors, routine testing is not currently being recommended. So what is really going on?
