By the looks of this graph you may come to the conclusion that cheese is causing people to suffocate in their bed sheets. This is the same “slight of hand” the pharmaceutical industry uses to sell you drugs with little to no effectiveness. Researchers use a matrix called “Patients Needed to Treat” or NNT. NNT is the number of patients who must be treated with a drug before ONE person reaps the benefit. For example, the NNT for statin drugs is 250! Research found (link below) that taking statin drugs daily for 5 YEARS produces only a 1.6% chance of avoiding a heart attack. Bottom line, high cholesterol is not correlated with heart attacks any more than cheese is correlated with suffocation in bed!
Statin drugs DO LOWER cholesterol BUT do NOT result in any significant drop in heart attack or stroke. This is why even the New England Journal of Medicine has stated that high cholesterol is not a precursor to a future heart event. Deception and POOR RESULTS like these are why 2 MILLION PEOPLE DAILY are turning to regular chiropractic care to promote health. If you have never had a SPECIFIC chiropractic adjustment, it clears the mind, sets the body at ease and is a great health insurance policy.
