Health – The Heart Of The Matter
As wrote in my book HEALTHY AND LEAN FOR LIFE, (download it free here) for more than 60 years we have been misled, lied to and bombarded with false information about the causes of heart disease and how to prevent it. Here’s the truth: There is NO correlation between high cholesterol and plaque formation associated with heart disease as we have been told. The cholesterol hypotheses that still persists has made billions for multinational food corporations who latched onto false warnings that we must not eat butter or saturated fats and that we should all be living on a low-fat-high-carb diet.
The advice we’ve been given for more than half a century now is dangerously wrong. Following it as we are still being urged to by governments, medical associations and the media continues to fuel an exponential rise in degenerative diseases from heart disease and cancer to diabetes, insulin resistant syndrome and mental disorders to name but a few. Meanwhile the drug industry has made billions pushing cholesterol-lowering statin drugs—now among the most widely prescribed drugs in the world. In the United States alone one in four people over 45 take them. Recently there has been a medical directive issued which calls for healthy people to take statins as well “as a preventative. (read my blog on the danger of statins here). There is NO correlation whatever between high cholesterol and plaque formation that will produce heart disease. These two programs aired over ABC News in Australia are a must to watch so please make the time to do this as they could well be life-changing for you and your family. Dr Maryanne Demasi investigates the so-called science behind the belief that saturated fat causes heart disease as well as much more.
