We’ve had it pounded into us by the medical establishment that high cholesterol causes heart disease, and that cholesterol lowering drugs known as statins can reduce cholesterol and therefore heart disease. But is it true? And if not, what are the dangers of taking statins?
Heart Disease Cause and Treatment Facts and Fallacies
Allopathic medicine tells us that heart disease is caused by saturated fat and cholesterol, and the best way to avoid dying of a heart attack is by avoiding saturated fat, consuming vegetable oils and lowering cholesterol with the use of statins. This paradigm has been challenged since it was first suggested by Ancel Keys. Just as many people die with low cholesterol as they do with high cholesterol.
This section discusses the potential causes of heart disease, why cholesterol is not the villain, the role of cholesterol in the body, why saturated fats are healthy and polyunsaturates are not, the dangers of taking statins, the role of stress and exercise in heart health, and how to naturally lower blood pressure.
