Even more nauseating than the vats of fat leftover in fast food fryers is the recent proposal of offering statins as an over the fast food counter pill to combat the catastrophic climb of cholesterol levels by consuming their food. Let me clarify: you are offered an anti-cholesterol pill with your triple cheeseburger and fries to offset the supersizing of cholesterol numbers at your next doctor visit. That’s right, since knowing what is in the life shortening, waist widening, heart stopping hamburger doesn’t impact your decision to dump your local grease station, perhaps fast food chains can have a heart (well, they will eventually have yours) and help alleviate the assault on your system. Its really no different than the preventative measure of offering condoms in health education classes, despite the vividly graphic slides of genital herpes and the countless adolescents that will still indiscriminately partake in intercourse, so, if you cant beat ‘em, join ‘em perspectives may prove profitable for pharmaceutical companies who choose to collaborate with the coronary criminals. The difference is, in high school, there is an allowance made for the perception of invincibility that teenagers have, and the gross lack of accountability that should be missing in adults, however, society is perpetuating an environment of enabling the gluttons to point their gout laden finger elsewhere.
Despite the dry heaves triggered by this idea of wantonly discounting willpower, statins are an effective measure against rising cholesterol, and their mechanism of action is also replicated in many natural supplements on the market. Statins imitate a molecule in the assembly line of cholesterol synthesis, and much like the heavy guy in line at McDonalds who cant decide, they effectively slow the process of cholesterol production. By replicating this molecule, eventually natural cholesterol production in the liver ceases and blood levels drop. When the liver notices the decreased productivity, it signals the good cholesterol LDL to draw the remaining bad cholesterol out of circulation and into the liver where it is eventually excreted. While statins are a higher concentrate of cholesterol reducing components, alternative methods through dietary supplementation have achieved similar results in regulating cholesterol levels, such as garlic pills, and fatty acid supplements such as fish, flax and borage oil.
The point is, temptation is everywhere and not without consequence—but by offering a remedy to the health hazards in your hamburger, its akin to giving the go ahead to the gorging of grease riddled goods and in light of the increasing obesity in America, it has been made all too convenient thus far.
