How arteries get clogged up

An interesting article opened my eyes.

How do people get coronary heart disease? Due to an increased consumption of sugar, the risk of inflammation goes up. The arteries will get damaged by the high concentration of sugar. The damaged arteries need to follow an automatic cell repair mechanism. As all cell membranes consist of cholesterol, the repairing of these damaged cells will need cholesterol. The liver will produce this extra cholesterol, so the cholesterol concentration in the blood will go up.

When the cells of the arteries (endothelium) get fixed, this will form a scar on the arteries. It's this scar that will cause narrowing of the arteries along with the cholesterol that is used to repair the cells. It's therefore very important to have good cholesterol HDL in your blood, because bad cholesterol LDL will cause plaque.

But the primary cause of coronary heart disease is not cholesterol, it's inflammation due to high blood sugar. In fact low cholesterol induces heart disease, because a deficiency in cholesterol means a deficiency of cholesterol sulphate. A low level of cholesterol sulphate, which has a negative charge, will make blood more positively charged. Positive charged blood is prone to blood clotting as it is thicker. So actually you need more cholesterol to get the blood thinner. Of course you also need sulfur which can be found in eggs, coconut oil, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, kale, ... Especially old people who are deficient in sulfur need to eat this. Otherwise the sulfur will be extracted from the bones, which causes arthritis.

I hope this enlightens your view on cholesterol. Eating too many eggs is not bad for you.

How to train your muscles

One of the best ways to train your muscles is to do extreme weight training. The key is to exercise such power that your heart rate starts to go up significantly while your body temperature rises with it. Your pace of breathing will go up. The benefits are an increased amount of human growth hormone production.

Now there are two exercises in particular that caught my attention.

The first one is to train your abdomen muscles. This is called the plank. Hold this position for an extended amount of time.

The second one is to train your legs and buttocks. This is called a lunge. Hold this position for an extended amount of time.

Remember, hold the position until you feel your heart rate is significantly higher.

How to treat cancer starting by yourself

This article is very important to read. If you ever have cancer, the first thing you need to do is to literally "starve" yourself. Cancer cells need glucose to thrive, so you block all sugar in your diet. That's what you need to do.

Instead of sugar, you eat protein and a lot of healthy fats like nuts and coconut oil.

This is why Steve Jobs had cancer

I just read an article that links fruit with pancreatic cancer.

As you know, Steve Jobs was a fruitarian, and maybe this sheds light on why he got cancer. Believe me, don't eat too much fruit, it isn't healthy.

Sun Exposure for Vitamin D

Interesting to know. The minimum degree the sun needs to have for you to get Vitamin D is 30°. So as long as it's warm enough and the sun is high enough, you will get Vitamin D by tanning.

For example Belgium:

50° latitude North
4° longitude East

From 22 February onwards, the sun will go above 30° around 12 o'clock. So from then on, you can start getting out in the sun again to get your Vitamin D. From 15 April onwards the sun will go above 50°, which is the optimal time to get a lot of Vitamin D with great efficiency.
