Dr. Dwight Lundell is a heart surgeon who has seen more than his fair share of heart disease. He knows plenty about the patients he cuts open, and he says that cholesterol is not the concern.
If Dr. Lundell says that lowering cholesterol is NOT your answer, you owe it to yourself to find out why.
Over 25% of the population is taking statin medications because they are VERY concerned about the health of their heart due to bad cholesterol numbers. There is also a push to begin prescribing these drugs to otherwise healthy people without elevated cholesterol levels.
If statins prevent heart disease, why is heart disease increasing year after year and kills more people than every other cause of death combined?
The cholesterol theory has more to do with selling lots of drugs and making a ridiculous amount of money than it does heart disease prevention!
Dr. Lundell says that inflammation is the cause of heart disease!
He also says that the very dietary recommendations born of the anti-cholesterol movement for no-fat and low-fat foods, CAUSES inflammation.
Yep, you read that right. Low-fat and no-fat foods cause inflammation which causes heart disease!
Polyunsaturated Omega-6 oils; packaged and processed foods created for shelf life, rather than prolonging your life; sugars and simple carbohydrates create inflammation. This IS the cause of the epidemic of heart disease, obesity and other chronic illnesses.
So why does your doctor prescribe statins for you, and even pressure you into taking them to protect against heart disease by lowering cholesterol, if cholesterol is not the problem?
Because, he is doing what he was trained to do … drug symptoms.
If cholesterol isn’t the problem, is testing your levels really helpful?
A much more prudent test would be one that measures the level of inflammation in your body, a simple C-reactive protein test.
Do you plan to stick your head in the sand and hope that your doctor knows enough to protect you from heart disease? Taking a pill sure sounds a whole lot easier than making changes you don’t want to make, but that pill may actually cause your death!
One fact you can not argue with is that statins cause the depletion of Co-enzyme Q10. Deplete your Co-Q10 and you will weaken your muscles. Your heart is a muscle. How much quality of life will you have with a weak heart muscle?
Low cholesterol levels are also very dangerous!
Do you know that you NEED cholesterol for many of the life sustaining functions of your body? It is tough to even think clearly if your cholesterol level is low. Is that the reason the public is buying this ploy to sell drugs? Educate yourself, it’s your life.
