A new evidence has suggested that bad cholesterol in the body doesn’t cause any cardiac problems.
From a past century doctors have insisted people to decrease bad cholesterol known as LDL (Low Density Lipoproteins) causes heart strokes and diseases. Considering these conditions people across America have begun to intake statins and developing issues more complicated heart issues.
Difference between HDL and LDL
But, still people are unclear in knowing difference, HDL (High Density Lipoproteins) known as good cholesterol. Because it transports cholesterol to your liver to remove from your body. HDL helps rid your body of excess cholesterol so it’s less likely to end up in your arteries.
LDL called as bad cholesterol because it takes cholesterol to your arteries, it may collect in artery walls. This can increase the risk of blood clots in your arteries. If a blood clot breaks away and blocks an artery in your heart or brain. You may have a stroke or heart attack.
“The research that has targeted LDL is terribly flawed. Not only is there a lack of evidence of causal link between LDL and heart disease, the statistical approach statin advocates have used to demonstrate benefits has been deceptive.” Said David Diamond, Ph.D., a professor in USF’s Departments of Psychology and Molecular Pharmacology & Physiology, and a co-author of the article.
Risk of statin in Americans
The research doctors from U.S., Sweden, the United Kingdom, Italy, Ireland, France and Japan declared as the detailing on LDL is misleading with unsuccessful trails.
The medication of statin prescribed to the patients by doctors highly researched. As trained neuroscientist, David Diamond first started looking into diet and heart disease research over decade ago, when he diagnosed at high risk for developing CVD and his doctor recommended he take statins.
He began studying research on heart disease. And realized that the emphasis on LDL as a cause of CVD was not based on accurate research. Diamond reports that he lost weight and dramatically improved his heart disease risk. By following a low carbohydrate diet without the intake of statins.
