Wrong Track Preventing Heart Disease

Story at-a-glance

  • Over the past 60 years, research has repeatedly demonstrated that there’s NO correlation between high cholesterol and plaque formation that leads to heart disease. Despite that, the saturated fat/cholesterol myth has persisted
  • The cholesterol hypothesis turned into a boon for the processed food industry, and gave birth to the “low-fat” craze. In the process, healthful saturated fats were swapped for harmful trans fats, and ever increasing amounts of sugar
  • The cholesterol theory also resulted in a massive boon for the drug industry. Cholesterol-lowering statins are now among the most widely prescribed drugs on the market with one in four Americans over 45 taking them
  • Sugar is a primary dietary culprit in the development of heart disease. To protect your heart health, you need to address your insulin and leptin resistance, which is the result of eating a diet too high in sugars and grains

It’s got millions swapping key natural foods for its harmful ‘cousins’ and piles of sugar. Linked to 96,000 premature deaths, it’s a boon for two industries… and a disaster for your heart. Shouldn’t you ‘switch back’ today for a heart-healthy tomorrow?
