Even the famous Framingham study now admits there is no association between dietary fat and heart disease. no benefit from a low fat diet in terms of heart disease or breast cancer.
Does the thought of a steak, bacon and eggs, or real milk make you cringe thinking you’re instantly clogging up your arteries? How many times have you seen physicians and nutritionists write “artery clogging saturated fats”? For the last 40 years the dietary instructions from governments and other authoritative bodies have told us to avoid all animal fats. (more…)
Indian doctors gave T3 to a group of patients with high cholesterol and blood sugar problems. After 60 days, T3 promoted an overall drop of 23% in total cholesterol… and a whopping 42% drop in LDL (bad) cholesterol.
Further evidence that extra calories cause heart attacks comes from the fact that reducing your intake of calories by one third and eating nothing but fatty meats and diary products will cause your blood cholesterol level to go down
The arteries are major blood vessels the heart uses to pump blood from the it to the rest of the body. Over time, arterial walls can become congested with a fatty substance known as plaque. When this happens to a severe point, the arteries may begin to harden and the blood flow can become compromised and ultimately result in a heart attack. Mainstream medicine’s approach for treating plaque is to use drugs or surgery. However, there are natural ways to prevent and remove plaque.
The amount of quality protein in your diet is the single most important calorie that influences your metabolic rate, favorably influencing weight loss. Quality protein also helps you sustain muscle during weight loss, improve muscle fitness, improve immunity, improve antioxidant function, build HDL cholesterol, and enhance insulin and leptin function – all of which contribute toward optimal weight management efforts over time.

mainstream studies are showing that approximately 2/3 to ¾ of current statin sales have no useful purpose or are actually harmful. If we want to reduce health care costs this is a great place to start.
Overweight individuals typically have problems with excess fat blobs (triglycerides) and elevated cholesterol. A new study shows that DHA1 lowers triglycerides and improves the quality of both LDL and HDL.
This study is interesting in part because no attempt was made to help the participants lose weight. In the overweight condition, excess triglycerides cause leptin resistance as well as gumming up LDL and HDL cholesterol, reducing their functional quality, creating a higher risk for heart disease progression. This study demonstrated that DHA could change the health of HDL and LDL to a higher quality even in the presence of being overweight.
I should point out, the process of weight loss improves the quality of many issues relating to heart disease. Clearly, the benefits of DHA in terms of helping weight loss and cardiovascular benefits, will be greater if weight loss occurs at the same time it is being taken. This study shows, it is even protective for the person who is stuck in a weight rut.
