People are constantly being told about cholesterol and cholesterol levels: what is good, what is bad, what to eat, what not to eat, etc.

So…what should your cholesterol goal be?

Principally because of a diet high in animal based foods, the average total cholesterol for adult Americans is about 200 mg/dL, even though 30 million Americans are on medication to lower cholesterol! Without all of those pills that number would be in the stratosphere!  This is a key indicator that too many of us are indeed, sick.  Our documented high rates of chronic disease and obesity confirm this.

Current guidelines used by most American doctors suggest that patients aim for a total cholesterol below 200. Yet, did you know that many heart attacks actually occur in the 180-200 range ?   The total cholesterol required to minimize risk for common chronic diseases is actually considerably lower.

As documented in the landmark Framington heart study and The China Study, people with a total cholesterol number below 150 virtually never get heart attacks – if you have spent any time on this website, you probably knew that – but did you also know that  The China Study results also demonstrated that a total cholesterol in the low 100’s range results in a considerably  lower risk of strokes, type 2 diabetes, colon cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer and other chronic diseases when compared to a cholesterol in the high 100’s range?

Well then why on earth do we aim for a total cholesterol of under 200?  I have come to the conclusion that the only possible answer is because a sub 150 totally cholesterol is “culturally impossible”. It would mean parting ways with burgers, franks, and fried chicken and replacing them with beans, veggies, and fruit on a regular basis.  It is easier to ignore the China Study Research than to confront modifying our societal norms.

There is good news.  Nearly anyone can achieve a sub 150 total cholesterol in a matter of weeks or months, often without medication. I am living proof. You can begin protecting yourself today from the diseases that are most likely to cause early death, with a plant based whole foods diet.
