keep hearing about the different types of cholesterol. It’s silly. There is a single molecule of cholesterol, so there is only one type of cholesterol. What started this nonsense types of cholesterol?
How many types of cholesterol are there? The more we are indoctrinated with the myth of cholesterol-as-poison, the guys who seem to find. HDL. LDL. VLDL. And those pesky triglycerides: Are they a type of cholesterol? This is the truth:
None of them are cholesterol, and there is only one type of cholesterol! It’s okay. HDL, LDL, VLDL and cholesterol are not. And cholesterol is not a fat.
All this nonsense very fashionable to fears that their cholesterol levels are too high … well, unless they are the “right kind” of cholesterol … or maybe it’s making sure that they are in the right balance … or whatever the latest craze among physicians becomes … is a pure and absolute nonsense. Is a cooked confusion jamboree designed to put not only yourself but your doctor, balance and disoriented by what you buy into the idea that should really take your poison … uh, drugs, or could die morning.
The only type of cholesterol
cholesterol molecule, by Gaia Health
are cholesterol elements 27 carbon atoms, 45 hydrogen atoms, and a pair of oxygen-hydrogen. That’s 27 carbons, 46 hydrogens, and 1 of only oxygen.
A cholesterol molecule includes four hydrocarbon ring structures, as shown in area dyeing right diagram. These rings placed cholesterol steroid hormone family. In fact, all other steroid hormones, including estrogen and testosterone, are made of cholesterol.
The hydroxyl group is indicated by the HO in the bottom of the diagram. Any molecule having a hydroxyl group is defined as an alcohol. Alcohol is water soluble.
Cholesterol has a queue of carbon and hydrogen atoms which extends outside the rings. Both the tail and the rings are nonpolar, which means that dissolve in the oil, but can not dissolve in water.
This is a molecule of cholesterol. No other cholesterol molecule. There are, therefore, only one kind of cholesterol. You can look and look, but never find another model of a molecule of cholesterol.
So where does the idea that there is more than one type of cholesterol has emerged?
Remember that cholesterol is composed of three parts. Two of the three can not be dissolved in water. In general, that makes cholesterol incapable of dissolving in the blood. Therefore, a vehicle to be transported through the body is required. That carrier is a lipoprotein. And that’s where the idea that there are different types of cholesterol come.
There are different types of lipoproteins. Each carries cholesterol but are not part of cholesterol. So where does the idea that there are different types of cholesterol has emerged?
History of cholesterol myth
A series of events and studies led to the myth that cholesterol is harmful. Back in 1889, researchers reported Knauss Lehzen and a child who died suddenly at the age of 111. The child was born with a condition called hypercholesterolemia, causing massive overproduction of cholesterol. This seems to have been the seed that gave rise to the idea that cholesterol is bad.
Next, a series of experiments were conducted in laboratory animals2,3. Nikolai N. purified Anitschkow rabbits fed cholesterol, demonstrating that developed atherosclerosis. Of course, rabbits do not eat a natural diet, but as that little detail seems to have been ignored. So more such experiments were performed in goats, chickens, parrots, guinea pigs, pigeons and rhesus monkeys. It was attempted dogs, but consumers of natural meat that still did not work. Of course, he ignored this bit of information.
In 1955, Ancel Keys was already convinced that fat in the diet is key to cholesterol levels. an epidemiological study that says show that high fat intake is directly linked to heart attacks was made. The problem is, he cheated. data from 22 countries, many of which strongly conflict with their conclusion, which is based on data from only 7 countries! were collected He cherry-picked data to produce the results he wanted. However, your call is cited research to this day. For a humorous look at your work, take a look at this video:
From that point, modern medicine became engaged in the theory of cholesterol- as-villain. The question is why? Why was it so important to accept junk science obviously flawed? Like any other industry, modern medicine wants to sell products, which means that people doctor visits and medications thrust. Treat cholesterol as a villain has led to a steady stream of people became patients, flowing in doctors’ offices and get drugs, mainly statins, but many others, too, like the idea of drugs as prevention has become a roll.
So pseudo science mills set to work producing fake study after study aims to show how false that cholesterol causes heart disease. In that effort, they began to discover different “types” of cholesterol. Since it is obviously absurd, what are they referring to?
Health-and cholesterol-free zone sign
Remember that cholesterol is not soluble in water? As a result, they have to be carried by more than travel in the blood. Those things are lipoproteins, so called because they are a mixture of fat (liposomes) and proteins. As a result, there are different types of lipoproteins. Therefore, when different types of whole cholesterol, it actually is referring to lipoproteins that transport cholesterol and fat cells. This association of lipoproteins both fat and cholesterol has led to the idea that cholesterol is a fat, but also false.
There are several types of lipoproteins, more, in fact, are generally said. Have you heard of chylomicrons? Those are the largest type of lipoprotein-but never hear about them because no one has figured out how to measure in a blood test. Now I should say something about this whole myth of cholesterol. Apparently, the only lipoproteins are going to be informed about which can be measured. If you can not measure them, then there is no way to determine if you need a drug to increase or decrease them.
we do not often hear of VLDL (very low-density lipoprotein). This is because no one has really discovered an easy way to measure. When we are given a measure, which is almost always an estimate, based on an assumed relationship with triglycerides.
carry VLDL triglyceride fat as cells in the body. Also they carry cholesterol, but not released. When VLDL have posted most of the fat, which are called IDL (intermediate density lipoproteins). IDL release more fat cells and converted into LDL (low density lipoprotein).
LDL is what is meant by the bad cholesterol. There are indications that after LDL cholesterol have been distributed, they become small enough to dig into the walls of the arteries and oxidize, resulting in inflammation that is so harmful. If this is true or not, it is quite clear that cholesterol is not the problem. In any case, the LDL cholesterol molecules into cells where they are needed are dispersed.
HDL (high density lipoprotein) is often called “good” cholesterol. They have several functions, including cholesterol transport. However, rather than transport it to the cells, HDL carries cholesterol from them and back to the liver, where the liver determines whether to recycle or dispose of it. The liver is in control of your cholesterol level in your body, not lipoproteins.
The functions of HDL is to take antioxidant enzymes. This could explain why HDL is so good :. You can help neutralize the potential damage caused by the oxidation of LDL depleted “
Cholesterol, friend not foe
Cholesterol has been demonized. However, the longer, more heart disease than we have seen was demonized. Obviously, something is wrong with the theory. Unfortunately, vested interests will not let it go without a fight. There is simply too much money riding on this false assumption. Therefore, more and more details are discovered, resulting in more and more distinctions in the types of cholesterol called despite the absurd, obviously, it is the concept. There is one, and only one type of cholesterol.
This type of cholesterol is critical for survival. It is required to make vitamin D3. which it is necessary for the function of the brain and nerves. Without it, you can not form memories, so it is not surprising that statins, which interfere with the formation of cholesterol, can damage memory. Cholesterol is needed to form corticosteroids, testosterone and estrogen. We need cholesterol, and interfering with it leads to devastating health effects. it should be no surprise that statins cause much damage.
Indeed, if you value your health, you ignore warnings about high cholesterol levels. Unless you suffer from hypercholesterolemia, a congenital defect, the chances of having excess cholesterol are thin fadingly. If you have a problem with lipoproteins, reducing cholesterol is not going to help, taking statins, which lower cholesterol as they claim, could do terrible things to your health.
Just remember that cholesterol is not measured by blood tests. Lipoproteins are, and are not cholesterol.
