& the matter of STATIN drugs comes to mind as well -- and how good & necessary cholesterol is for the typical human body, really.

The Grave Dangers of STATIN Drugs—and the Surprising Benefits of Cholesterol

Statin Drugs: What They Do & Who Should Take Them

by Stephen Sinatra, MD

4:44 VIDEO "Taking Statin Drugs for Cholesterol " and Article, too.

Article excerpt:

. . . The problem with a statin is this: You don't want to choose a statin to lower a cholesterol number. To me, that's bad medicine and I'll tell you why. . . .


5 Great Reasons Why You Should Not Take Statins

By Dr. Mercola - February 10, 2016


Do Statins Age You Faster?—New Study

By ANH-USA - September 29, 2015

A recently published study in the American Journal of Physiology has shown that statins, anti-cholesterol drugs, are disrupting our stem cells.

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to create different kinds of cells (such as skin, muscle, or bone cells).

For more on the benefits of cholesterol, the different kinds and what they all do, search article and YouTube video presentations by:

Ivor Cummins, The Fat Emperor - and the Irish Heart Group

Film: "The Windowmaker" re: Coronary Calcium Scan

Nina Teicholz, The Big Fat Surprise - investigative journalist's ten year research findings

Demonization and Deception in Cholesterol Research – Great

Presentation by Professor David Diamond

This classification of oils -from "vegetables" but really from seeds and put under high heat and industrial chemical treatment - not good for human consumption.

Nina Teicholz - 'Vegetable Oils: The Unknown Story'

Vegetable Oil Anyone? The Omega 6 excess…

Sinning with Seed Oils - are Vegetable Oils Healthy?

Ivor Cummins interviews Tucker Goodrich - Podcast #10

Mar 19, 2019

Hear how Tucker Goodrich cleared up many serious symptoms, especially in the gut, when he stopped all seed "vegetable" oils.

Anyone with pain, GI symptoms of all kinds and even mental concentration issues might find his own experiment encouraging.

While its good to see some solid evidence of confirmation and always a positive to get the info out there to the masses, this isn't exactly a new concept.

I certainly hope the general medical community does not see this as a mind-blowing new development, as both previous study and common understanding of brain chemistry / function shows this makes sense.

Anticholinergics are medications that block the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. As there are receptors for this neurotransmitter in various places throughout the body (usually smooth-muscle related, like the bladder etc), it has sometimes been useful to add a medication to block them to alleviate various symptoms.

Unfortunately, this isn't as "targeted" as people thought and there are a lot of brain functions that require acetylcholine and choline in general. Think about the use of phos-chol supplements for neurological function etc. Thus, spending a long time messing with acetylcholine/choline function is likely to have a negative effect on the brain!

If nothing else, perhaps this will encourage physicians to avoid these types of drugs if at all possible seeking alternatives instead (note: many of the named drugs are older, cheaper medications; there are alternatives which I hope will be accessible financially), or in the case the drug is still the best option to look into the viability of supplementing choline-related support to potentially counteract the issue, taken up in greater quantities by the brain while still allowing the drugs to have their effects peripherally. Ideally, future studies can investigate the viability of such a protocol.
