This would be great news for the drug makers....a pill to "treat" heart disease....but what about CURING it altogether so you don't REQUIRE these medications loaded with all kinds of side effects. But, not to worry, there will be a pill you can take for those side effects.....
Heart disease can be CURED and REVERSED by DIET. And, the same diet that prevents and reverses heart disease, will also prevent and reverse a host of other chronic diseases we have in this country--type 2 diabetes, cancers, and several other illnesses that plague Americans. But, there are literally millions of Americans dying to have their heart disease reversed on meat-based diets. Since there are so many people on "high protein" diets, you would think that out of those millions, just one person would have reversed his or her heart disease....but guess what....it's NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! If the 'high protein" people were able to recruit one person with heart disease and reverse it with their diet, the publicity they would receive would be unbelievable and everyone would be eating steak and eggs for breakfast...believe me the meat industry would have a field day! But, this has not been accomplished, nor will it ever happen.
However, by changing your diet to a Whole Food Plant Based diet, this can absolutely be achieved....heart disease, cancers, diabetes, strokes, etc., can be prevented and reversed. There are hundreds of scientific studies proving just this. The arguments of the high-protein diets are extremely deceptive--there are big differences in honesty. Let's take two famous people, Dr. Nathan Pritikin and Dr. Robert Atkins...Dr. Pritikin followed a WFPB diet, Dr. Atkins, of course, followed his famous high-protein diet.
Dr. Pritikin initially was eating the Standard American Diet, (SAD) and developed heart disease. After researching, he completely changed his diet to a WFPB diet. He stipulated in his will that when he died he wanted an autopsy to be preformed with the results published, regardless of the outcome. His body was autopsied, as he wished, and it was found that he ahd the heart and arteries of a young man which were completely clear of any signs of heart disease or plaque. His results were published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Now, let's talk about Dr. Atikins. When he died, everything possible was done to conceal his health before and after his death, despite the claims by the Atkins people his diet was "heart healthy", despite decades of solid medical research showing this type of diet to be EXTREMELY UN-HEALTHY. In fact, recent studies have shown that the Atkins diet REDUCES BLOOD FLOW to the heart by 40% after one year!
High amounts of any kind of fat--be it animal fat, vegetable fat (oils), or manufactured fat (food made in the lab), decrease the amount of oxygen delivered in your body. After a high-fat meal, doctors can actually see blood sludging in the whites of patients' eyes, due to the high concentration of fat. A blood sample taken form a person a few hours after eating a cheeseburger and shake showed that HALF of the blood sample consisted of fat!! American's blood is so thick with fat that doctors are now telling millions of people to take an aspirin everyday in an effort to thin their blood! This is NOT the ANSWER.
The FACT is heart disease can ONLY be reversed on a TRUE low-fat diet (10% or less of total calories). Remember, when you eat to prevent or reverse heart disease, you'll be preventing all the other degenerative diseases that are making us sick and causing premature deaths.
So, we need to stop listening to all the misinformation we are "fed" every single day by the meat industry, the dairy industry and the fast-food industry....we need to listen to the scientific evidence that is available from extremely respectable physicians such as Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, and Dr. T. Colin Campbell. Each one of these doctors have put themselves, their families and thousands of patients on a WFPB diet resulting in optimal health. Their studies have been published in the highest peer-reviewed journals available.
Who will you listen to.....the people who will make a huge profit if you "buy" what they have to sell, or, these highly respected physicians with years of clinical studies backing what they promote, without you having to spend a dime?
