Preventing Heart Disease

Despite all the noise, it has yet to be shown definitively that elevated blood cholesterol is a primary risk factor for heart disease. What is known is that cholesterol, which is made in liver in large quantities, is arguably the most important chemical in the body. It is used to make numerous hormone substances including testosterone and Vitamin D, it is a integral component of the central nervous system and is a predominant material in all cell membranes.

Preventing Heart DiseaseAnd ironically, adequate levels are very important for neural vascular health. Maybe that’s why people with low cholesterol have a higher incidence of strokes than the normal population. And according to Dr. William Castelli, the former director of the famous Framingham Heart Study, people with low cholesterol suffer nearly 40% of all heart attacks.

Given all this factual information, do you really think that that statin drug the doctor wants you to take is going to keep your heart healthy? You and your heart are much better off taking enough vitamin C and B-complex and essential fatty acids and laying off the processed, chemical-laden fast foods.

    Dr Ben, your delivery of simple truths toward better health are so powerful. Each time I listen to your “fill in” for Dr Wallach, I’m further impressed. Would like to know your stance on FLUORIDE and PORK. I have some embossed reservations against the both. I get, as you can imagine, “hairy eyeballs” when I entertain either taboo. thanks, r/s rjlevando

  • Biological fluoride is an important nutrient that is important for the health of hard tissue (e.g. bone. Metallic, industrial by-product fluoride that is added to water is a well recognized neurotoxin that can’t help but effect the brain.)
    Pork is not inherently problematic, but industrial farm raised pigs and hormones and anti biotics and filth and pork processing and pork storage ARE! I’d personally stay away from any pork, beef or any meat that wasn’t healthy alive, freshly killed and freshly cooked…
