Low Cholesterol Levels Harm Your Brain

Do low cholesterol levels effect your brain? Low cholesterol risk factors are: suicide, cancer, stroke, depression, our grandparents losing their ability to fight and recover from illness, and Parkinson disease, says evidence. See the risk factors list next:

9 ways low cholesterol levels harm your health: Risk Factors Are

  1. You die sooner
  2. Your body loses its ability to fight and recover
  3. You have an increased risk of getting Parkinson Disease
  4. You have an increased risk of getting Prostate Cancer
  5. You have a greater risk of developing cancer
  6. You get Cancer again
  7. You have a greater risk of having a stroke
  8. It is easier for you to become depressed
  9. You have a greater risk of wanting to commit suicide

First a QUESTION to get you to rethink: Is LDL cholesterol the best risk factor to measure heart disease, or is it a symptom of something else? – What about LDL-P?

In 2009 the US National Library of Medicine found “studies consistently demonstrate Apo B and LDL-P are superior predictors of coronary heart disease (CHD).”

Apo B (Apolipoprotein B) is a protein and is a component of very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL). LDL-P is the particle size of the low-density lipoprotein measured. Ivor Cummins, an engineer, reversed heart disease by researching what caused his body to have high numbers.  Read about his search here: http://www.thefatemperor.com/

Look at Ivor Cummins image below. He has found: LDL particles on its own, seen next to the Healthy Controls and Hyperchol Patients (L1), (L2), (L3) in cream, did not get through blood vessel walls, but the (L4) (L5) in yellow and gold, the oxidized LDL, get into your blood vessel walls (Endothelial dysfunction) and trigger inflammation, causing heart disease.

How Ivor Cummins reversed cardiovascular disease can be found in a book he and Dr. Jeffry Gerber wrote called “Eat Rich, Live Long: Mastering the Low-Carb & Keto Spectrum for Weight Loss and Longevity”.

9 Ways Low Cholesterol Levels Harm Your Health: Here is the Evidence

# 1. Low Cholesterol Increases Death Rates in Elderly

Lower blood cholesterol concentrations lessen the survival chance in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) say this 2000 research published in the US National Medical Library

# 1 A. Cholesterol Lower Than 189mg/dl (4.9 mmol/L) Signals Rapidly Declining Health in Elderly People

If your total cholesterol levels are lower than 189mg/dl (4.9 mmol/L) you have a higher risk of dying even when many other related factors have been taken into account. 4521 elderly Italian men and women aged 65-84 years had vital information recorded between the years 1992 – 1995. This study was published in 2003 in the US National Medical Library

# 1 B. More Deaths Happen in Grandparents When Total Cholesterol is Low

This 12-year follow-up study of older adults reviewed research where the authors used different methods of analyzing the information. One researcher analyzed a group of home-dwelling elderly for 6 years and found more deaths occurred when their total cholesterol was low. Overall results of this study reinforced the role that low total cholesterol was an indicator of higher mortality (death) risk when other health problems were excluded.  say The Scientific World Journal

# 2. Low Total Cholesterol Below 6.1 mmol/L (110 mg/dl) Increased Risk of Parkinson’ Disease by 58%

The Rotterdam Study involved 6465 people aged over 55 years. At the start of this study they were all examined – then were re-examined 9.4 years later. It was discovered that higher total cholesterol levels, were associated with a lower number of the women members of the group developing Parkinson’s disease. Here are the surprising findings of the Rotterdam study published in The Oxford Academic American Journal of Epidemiology 2006 found:

TOTAL CHOLESTEROL LEVELS:

  • Below 6.1 mmol/L (110 mg/dl) increased Parkinson risk by 58%
  • Between 6.1 – 6.8 mmol/L (110 – 122 mg/dl) increased Parkinson risk by 46%
  • Between 6.8 – 7.0 mmol/L (122 – 126 mg/dl) increased Parkinson risk by 16%

In 2007 the United Kingdom newspaper, The Guardian, raised concerns about the increasing numbers of aging Britain’s being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. When it wrote this headline: “Low cholesterol levels linked with a higher risk of Parkinson’s disease.” The article began with this paragraph –

“Scientists are to investigate why people with low cholesterol levels appear to be more likely to develop Parkinson’s disease, following concerns that statins (drug medicines name) – given to control cholesterol – could cause an increase in the number of people with the illness.”

# 3. Low Cholesterol Levels Are Linked to Your Body Developing Cancer

Research has found that cholesterol-lowering medication is linked to tumors increasing in size when they are already present in your body. Even the Mayo Clinic, the prestigious medical business on the first page on most Google searches has written that low LDL cholesterol is linked to you getting cancer.

# 4. Low Cholesterol, High Physical Fitness and Low BMI (Body-Mass-Index) Are Linked to Prostate Cancer.

This study in 1997 of healthy Norwegian men aged 40-50 years began in 1972-1975 and was followed up throughout 2012. Cancer data was taken from the Cancer Registry of Norway and cause of death was obtained from the Cause of Death Registry of Norway.

These findings conflict with the current medical prostate cancer prevention recommendations.

# 5. Low Cholesterol Levels Are Linked to Increased Occurrence of Cancer

A 1988 study of 39,268 men and women aged 15-99 years, who were at the start free of cancer, had a 10-year follow-up. It was found that those with low cholesterol levels had an increased occurrence of cancer.

# 6. Low Cholesterol Levels Are Linked to Increase of Stroke Risk

Research published in 2013 that reviewed 23 studies involving 1,430,141 people explained the links of cholesterol levels to the occurrence of strokes. The study concluded that low levels of total cholesterol are linked to an increased risk of you having a stroke. Higher levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) were linked to a lower risk of stroke.

The Mayo Clinic (accessed 01262017)  has written that low LDL cholesterol is linked to hemorrhagic stroke. This happens when weakened blood vessels burst and bleed into your brain. Other names you may be familiar with are: intracerebral hemorrhage or cerebral bleed.

# 7. Low Cholesterol is Linked to an Increased Risk of Depression

The Mayo Clinic (accessed 01262017) also links low LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol to depression.

Low triglycerides and low total cholesterol are also linked to increased rates of depression in women

Research in 1999 of healthy young adult women, found low triglycerides and low total cholesterol, created traits of depression and anxiety in this group. These findings were independent of age, body mass index, physical activity and other factors known to influence fat concentrations.

# 8 & 9. Depression and Suicide Are Risks Linked to Low Cholesterol Levels in Male War Veterans

4500 US war veterans were studied for 15 years. The Journal of Psychiatric Research found that the men with depression and low total cholesterol were 7 more times likely to die prematurely of an accident or suicide than the other men in the study.

CONCLUSION

    Hi RJ,
    Lots of great information here. How often should one get their cholesterol checked?
    When we get older we should get tested more for low cholesterol or just periodically?

    This article made me think to ask my cardiologist tomorrow if I should be tested for low or high cholesterol levels.

    Thank you again,
    Donna Rayne

    I feel kind of morbid going through your article. But it’s a wake up call for me to get my cholesterol level checked. And I better start paying attention to what I eat. I never realized that it can contribute to depression too.

    Are there any symptoms that may suggest I have an issue with cholesterol?

    Hi, RJ.

    Wow, this is, indeed, a great post. most of the people write about the dangers of too high cholesterol level. Hardly anyone ever mentions the serious health risks linked with having too low cholesterol.

    My grandma is always worried about hers, and I already told her that it truly is in the normal range. The pharmaceutical industry, media, and society have brainwashed us into believing many erroneous regarding our health.

    Unfortunately, cholesterol is still a topic that gets far too less attention (just like diabetes). It seems that our modern society sees those ailments as parts of our culture and accept them as such.

    So, many thanks for pointing cholesterol levels out within your informative article.
    Also, thank you for making the effort to try and educate people, to help them regain their health and lives.

    Warm wishes,

    Alexandra

    Hey,

    Really interesting article, I specialise in helping people to naturally increase testosterone levels and understand the health risks associated with people having low testosterone. With cholesterol being a major building block of T it doesn’t surprise me that a lot of the ways low cholesterol harms and are in line with a number of ways low testosterone harms health. I like to hear about sources of cholesterol, what are your recommended food sources?

      Hello Rique,
      I wonder how often the older men & women lose their fight for life and die because their cholesterol levels are too low? My aim is to help educate people one person at a time, about the value of cholesterol to every cell in our bodies.
