The strongest dietary predictor of heart disease, including cholesterol and hypertension, is SUGAR! Research supports the true influence on your cholesterol level is NOT cholesterol in your diet but instead:
- Physical Activity
50+ years of Research has shown:
- Lowering blood cholesterol through diet is possible, yet research has shown that lowering your cholesterol has no beneficial effect on heart disease.
- Low cholesterol levels, or methods used to attain them, increase incidence of other serious, life-threatening illnesses.
More research supports that low cholesterol makes you moody:
- Depression and anger decline with a high fat diet but increase with a low fat, high carbohydrate diet.
- Increased frequency and severity of depression and increased suicide rates are associated with a low cholesterol diet.

High blood pressure could be the result of an allergy, blood sugar imbalance, immune issue or something else you can change.
