At last I am seeing support for what REALLY causes heart disease! I am reading it everywhere and all I can say is it’s about time! I just had to share this article with you and jump for joy as I see the tides turning now to understanding LIFESTYLE as the main causative factor in heart disease. So is YOUR Lifestyle Killing You?
I have the website of the full article for you below. This is written by a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries and he says “today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact that heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol.
Here is what he says
“ The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated.”
He continues to tell us
“What are the biggest culprits of chronic inflammation? Quite simply, they are the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, flour and all the products made from them). The cholesterol theory led to the no-fat, low-fat recommendations that in turn created the very foods now causing an epidemic of inflammation. Mainstream medicine made a terrible mistake. We now have an epidemic of arterial inflammation leading to heart disease and other silent killers. By eliminating inflammatory foods and adding essential nutrients from fresh unprocessed food, you will reverse years of damage in your arteries and throughout your body from consuming the typical American diet.”

On page 2-5 of my book Is Your Lifestyle Killing You? I have an illustration of foods that increase inflammation and those that decrease inflammation.
