The Benefits of High Cholesterol

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Mon, Aug 14, 2017

People with high cholesterol live the longest

This statement seems so incredible that it takes a long time to clear one´s brainwashed mind to fully understand its importance.

Yet the fact that people with high cholesterol live the longest emerges clearly from many scientific papers.

Consider the finding of Dr. Harlan Krumholz of the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at Yale University, who reported in 1994 that old people with low cholesterol died twice as often from a heart attack as did old people with a high cholesterol.

How Cholesterol Drugs Affect Memory, Diabetes & Peripheral Neuropathy

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Sun, Nov 02, 2014


Don’t you find it strange that a class of drugs that has questionable science and offers poor stated outcomes (prevention of heart disease in patient with just “high” cholesterol) would still be prescribed in such an amount that over a quarter of the US population over 45 is taking it? What drug class am I referring to? Statin drugs, the pharmaceutical industry’s leading money-maker, largely due to relentless advertising. The aim of statin drugs is to lower cholesterol by inhibiting the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, which plays a central role in the production of cholesterol in the liver (which produces about 70 percent of total cholesterol in the body).

A recent study found the statin advertising might be driving high cholesterol over diagnosis and over-treatment.[1] If you think about it, the incidence of heart disease is not decreasing despite a large portion of the US population taking statins. A study from Sweden shows a similar lack of effectiveness. [2] What does that tell you about wisdom of continuing advocate the promotion of statin drug usage?

Unfortunately, due in part to the popularity of statin drugs, my office is seeing large number of people calling in to find help for peripheral neuropathy. [3], [4] One of the so-called side effects of statin drugs is the development of nerve and muscle damage. [5]

Insulin Resistance, ‘Man Boobs’, Fatigue and Fear of Diabetes

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Sun, Oct 02, 2011

You have no energy – after work you come home and you’re spent – nothing is getting done around the house.  Getting to sleep is easy, but you wake up multiple times at night, never getting the quality of sleep that might help you feel better.  When the alarm goes off, the thought of getting up in the morning gives you angst because you wonder when it will ever get better.

Thyroid Problems and The Importance of the Triglyceride/HDL Ratio

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Sun, Jan 02, 2011

Thyroid problems, especially hypothyroidism can alter blood fats such as cholesterol and triglycerides.  The published evidence is quite clear in documenting that the actual total cholesterol level itself is not the most important risk factor of cardiovascular disease.
