Colesterolo sì, statine no. Perché?

Nov 27, 2023 | Alimentazione, Infiammazione, Medicina Preventiva

Decenni di linee guida ci suggeriscono di abbattere i nostri livelli di colesterolo e di non mangiare grassi. Ma davvero è così? E se il nostro vero rischio cardiovascolare dipendesse da altro e da fattori più specifici?

In questo nuovo “LONG” ti racconto quali sono davvero le cose a cui fare attenzione, ti racconto perché il colesterolo è “il padre di tutti gli dei” e perché l’assunzione di statine può dare problemi.

Le informazioni in questo video non vanno intese come consigli medici ma come semplice divulgazione. Ogni situazione clinica va valutata da un medico, per cui prima di prendere qualsiasi decisione riguardante la tua salute fatti aiutare da un professionista.
