Heart Attack!! - Is it from Cholesterol

Every day we are reminded of the dangers of cholesterol, including a cause of heart disease. Statistics show that heart disease is the number one murderer in Malaysia. The number of deaths from heart disease in the Government hospital in 2005 is 5.247 people. Like me, you believe that the cause of heart disease is cholesterol.We all know that HDL cholesterol is good and the bad LDL cholesterol. We also know that LDL cholesterol accumulates on artery walls and cause constriction of blood vessels. HDL cholesterol came to clean the walls of the arteries of LDL cholesterol. He also told by reducing the ratio of total cholesterol over HDL cholesterol, the lower our risk of heart disease.
Did you know that LDL cholesterol is actually not bad. LDL cholesterol in the original condition is good. Our bodies need to build cell membranes, other cells and various hormones. If LDL cholesterol is not enough food, your body will make cholesterol. The problem is the presence of free radicals, which change shape (oxidants) and LDL cholesterol can be bad. sufficient supply of antioxidants to solve the problem. You do not need an expensive drug to lower LDL cholesterol levels in the body. 

You may be surprised if I say or believe that cholesterol causes heart disease is so often portrayed by the media. According to the study, the real cause of heart disease is inflammation of blood vessels. The study published in the New England Journal of Medicine March 23, 2000 issue, shows more than half of people who have heart attacks have normal cholesterol levels. This discovery was a revolution in the treatment and prevention of heart attacks. From work to reduce your cholesterol level should find ways to reduce the causes of inflammation of blood vessels. This method can provide a significant impact in the prevention of heart diseases and recovery.
LDL cholesterol is not the only cause of the problem of inflammation of blood vessels. The main cause is an inflammation of blood vessels called homocysteine and free radicals. Problems arise only when the LDL cholesterol by free radicals dioxide. Without free radicals, LDL cholesterol did not turn bad. Have you heard about homocysteine? Homocysteine occurs when our body digest food, such as free radicals. Problems arise when the amount is excessive homocysteine produced. It is estimated that approximately 15% of all heart attacks and strokes in the world today are caused by high blood levels of homocysteine.
A 1990 study by Professor Dr. Stampfer Harvard School of Public Health found that little improvement in the level of homocysteine may increase the risk of heart disease three times. The New England Journal of Medicine in February 1995 on, Dr. Jacob Selhub, Ph.D., reported that high blood levels of homocysteine increase the risk of narrowing of the two arteries supplying blood to the brain (which can cause strokes). In addition, Dr. Selhub also reported that patients with high levels of homocysteine also have levels of folic acid, vitamin B12 and vitamin B6 are low in their bodies.
If the first thought that the cause of heart disease and stroke are cholesterol, studies in the 21st century has shown that homocysteine is nowhere. However, we must not upset by the problem can be solved by adopting the source of antioxidants, folic acid, vitamin B12 and vitamin B6 inadequacy.
