Few people were born with high cholesterol levels or high blood pressure. It is an acquired condition.It all starts with a condition Linus Pauling called “sub-clinical Vitamin C deficiency”. One function of Vitamin C is to act as a cofactor in the hydroxylation of lysine and proline in collagen formation. Collagen is a fibrous structural protein. One function of it is to strengthen blood vessels. Environmental toxins, smoking and “modern living” in general increases need for Vitamin C. Processed foods from supermarkets and junk food outlets do not provide sufficient Vitamin C on a daily basis. Still enough not to suffer from scurvy but not enough overall. Blood vessels become brittle with little cracks. The body’s defense is to mend these cracks with cholesterol and the liver increases cholesterol production.
