Low Cholesterol May Raise Your Alzheimer’s Risk

Story at-a-glance

  • Cholesterol is found in your bloodstream and cells, and is necessary for the production of cell membranes. Cholesterol also plays an important role in the formation of memories and is vital for healthy neurological function
  • Higher cholesterol levels are associated with better brain health; low cholesterol levels have been shown to increase your risk of depression and suicide
  • A 2014 study found higher levels of HDL and lower levels of LDL were associated with a reduced risk for amyloid plaque deposits in the brain, independently of age and presence of the APOE4 gene, which raises your risk for Alzheimer’s
  • Research published in 2008 found elderly individuals who were not genetically predisposed to Alzheimer’s disease who had the highest levels of cholesterol — including the highest levels of LDL — had the best memory
  • Another study published in 2018 came to a similar, although more complex, conclusion. While having higher total cholesterol at midlife was associated with a reduced risk for cognitive decline after the age of 85, those whose cholesterol levels increased between midlife and late life were at increased risk

When I fought the cancer 13 years ago my cholesterol was 3. I was close to death. This is a standard statins promoters set for everyone.

It's not just alzheimer's.  Imagine my shock when I read this article that points to Big Pharma pushing the lie about heart disease.  

"As it turns out, the association between cholesterol and cardiovascular disease (the so-called LDL-heart disease hypothesis) is weak. Physicians are starting to accept the fact that cholesterol levels do not strongly predict our chances of developing heart disease — and there are now over a dozen studies that prove it."

As we’re now learning, statins do not appear to play an important role in primary prevention. For people with no prior history, the impact of statins are miniscule. They reduce the risk of having a heart attack or stroke from 3-4% to just 2%.

"Dr. Mark Hymann puts it bluntly: “So if you think cholesterol is the enemy, think again. Without cholesterol, you would die. In fact, people with the lowest cholesterol as they age are at highest risk of death. Under certain circumstances, higher cholesterol can actually help to increase life span.”
