Thanks to the COVID fiasco and other issues that have transpired over the years, many Americans are finding it hard to trust the government and Big Pharma. Sure, we’re told they both have our best interests at heart, but actions speak louder than words, and what we’ve seen unfold, especially after the so-called “pandemic” has left a bad taste in many people’s mouths.

That’s why this tweet from cardio-nutrition analysis Alan Watson has caused such a stir. Mr. Watson, who’s also a very strong advocate for patients,  shared a line from a text book that is used at Oxford University that discusses the tremendous benefits of cholesterol.

Yes, cholesterol. 

According to the Oxford passage, “only cholesterol will allow animal membranes to function…” Replace cholesterol in a human membrane with a plant sterol (sitosterol and stigmasterol) and the membrane dies.

In addition, according to Biology Online, Cholesterol is a structural component of the cell membranes of animals. Because of cholesterol that provides cell membrane structural integrity and fluidity, animal cells need not to have cell walls such as that in bacterial and plant cells

Could this information potentially mark the downfall of the left’s push for fake meat? Is that among one of the reasons why they might be hesitant to advertise this kind of information?

“Cholesterol” is probably one of the dirtiest words on the planet, so hearing now that there’s this amazing and beneficial aspects to it is surprising to many.


Cholesterol is a fatty substance produced by your liver and found in certain foods. Your body needs it to produce certain hormones and tissues. But, too much may increase your risk for high blood pressure, stroke, and heart attack.

With all of the bad publicity cholesterol gets, people are often surprised to learn that it’s actually necessary for our existence.

What’s also surprising is that our bodies produce cholesterol naturally. But cholesterol is not all good, nor is it all bad — it’s a complex topic and one worth knowing more about.

In our bodies, cholesterol serves three main purposes:

It aids in the production of sex hormones.
It’s a building block for human tissues.
It assists in bile production in the liver.

These are important functions, all dependent on the presence of cholesterol. But too much of a good thing is not good at all.

Experts tell us that there are two different types of cholesterol. One is good and the other is bad.

LDL is low-density lipoprotein, often called “bad” cholesterol.

LDL is known as the “bad” cholesterol because too much of it can lead to hardening of the arteries.

According to the American Heart Association (AHA)Trusted Source, LDL leads to plaque accumulation on the walls of your arteries. When this plaque builds up, it can cause two separate and equally bad issues.

First, it can narrow your blood vessels, straining the flow of oxygen-rich blood throughout your body. Second, it can lead to blood clots, which can break loose and block the flow of blood, causing a heart attack or stroke.

When it comes to your cholesterol numbers, your LDL is the one you want to keep low — ideally less than 100 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL)Trusted Source.

HDL is high-density lipoprotein, or “good” cholesterol.

HDL helps keep your cardiovascular system healthy. It actually aids in the removal of LDL from the arteries.

It carries the bad cholesterol back to your liver, where it’s broken down and eliminated from your body.

High levels of HDL have also been shown to protect against stroke and heart attack, while low HDL has been shown to increase those risks.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), HDL levels of 60 mg/dL and higherTrusted Source are considered protective, while those under 40 mg/dL are a risk factor for heart disease.

Many would argue that having excessive cholesterol is not beneficial for our health, but are the guidelines for cholesterol intake being accurately communicated to the American public?

Some would even argue that saturated fat has never been proven to be harmful to our health except through sketchy epidemiological studies.

It’s worth noting that in European countries such as Italy and France, people consume meat, butter, cream, and cheese on a regular basis, yet they not only tend to be more physically fit than us but also enjoy better health overall.

How does that align with the kind of food guidelines we follow in the U.S.? The issue is that it doesn’t, leaving us with numerous unanswered questions. However, one things for certain, after reading this, many of you will probably throw a big juicy steak on the grill without a care in the world.

Bon Appetit!
