Beating Heart & Artery Disease

How far developed is your heart and artery disease?

Seriously, you probably have it to one degree or another. Young men's cadavers from the Korean and Vietnam wars autopsied showed significant plaque in the arteries. So, a 20-year-old can have significant plaque after a young life on the standard American diet.

In 1911, trans fatty acids were created when vegetable oils were turned into shortening and margarine. Margarine averages 31% trans fatty acids. Hydrogenation or partial hydrogenation creates the mass amount of these trans fatty acids. Cancer, by the way, has gone from 1 in 25 to 1 in 4 people since 1911. 

High heat and refining of oils also produce trans fats. There are no benefits, except to manufacturers. In Fats that Heal, Fats that Kill by Udo Erasmus, thirteen negative effects are noted for trans fats. Avoid trans fats in foods for better heart and artery health.

Cholesterol and high blood pressure are often linked to cardio-vascular health, especially by drug companies selling cholesterol and blood pressure lowering drugs. While changing your diet for the better is great for health; this change alone does not always lower your cholesterol or lower your blood pressure sufficiently in a short enough time or at all. Specialized supplements will change your cholesterol and other blood test markers in a timely fashion. High blood pressure can be brought down with better diet, specialized supplements and weight loss.

Recently, I have been reading a book by a "renegade" MD on the dangers of high blood pressure medications. She also gives numerous supplement and diet suggestions.

Cardiovascular disease is the most prevalent disease and killer in America. So, not surprisingly, the condition we most often treat is cardiovascular conditions from high blood pressure to mitral valve prolapse, from weak heart to arteriosclerosis.
