Most Cardiologists Are Clueless

"Vice President Cheney is also on vacation. He's in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. What better place for a guy who has had 4 heart attacks than a place with thin air, rugged hiking and all-beef dinners? Why don't they get some snow for him to shovel while he's out there, too?"
- Jay Leno

Forgive cardiologists. Blame their ignorance on what they are taught in medical school by ignorant old fools who instruct future doctors to diagnose and treat heart disease, not prevent it by recommending healthy diets. There's no cash flow in cardiovascular disease prevention.

The great irony of a cardiologist' s practice is that after major heart events, patients are often instructed to eat low fat/plant-based diets. Such advice given before heart attacks or strokes might very well reduce the need for cardiologists.

If not for 21st century machines which diagnose heart problems, most cardiologists would be clueless regarding heart disease diagnoses, heart disease prevention, and heart disease cure.

Once a patient is diagnosed with preliminary forms of heart disease after scoring high on the absurd cholesterol chart, the clueless doctor prescribes a cholesterol- lowering drug which works only to increase year-end cash bonuses and comped vacations from pharmaceutical to the cardiologist.

Cholesterol- Lowering Drugs Don't Work

Perhaps you saw this Associate Press headline on Monday, March 31, 2008:

Cholesterol drugs may not work A study finds Vytorin and Zetia, both popular cholesterol drugs, failed to treat heart disease.

"CHICAGO - Full results of a failed trial on Vytorin, a medicine taken by millions of people to lower cholesterol, left doctors stunned...

'A lot of us thought that there would be some glimmer of benefit,' said Dr. Roger Blumenthal, a Johns Hopkins University cardiologist and spokesman for the American Heart Association. "

Doctors and scientists should have learned their lesson after the first wave of cholesterol- lowering drugs worked to cause more problems and negative health reactions than they prevented.

They should have paid attention and observed that nature's perfect plan had been violated. In complete arrogance, these men and women of ignorance label the body's solution of dealing with heart damage by calling the body's own medicine "bad cholesterol. " Does the original architectural plan for the human body contain a fatally designed flaw?

Is there really such a thing as "bad cholesterol? "

The synthesis of low density lipoprotein (LDL cholesterol) is the human response to continuous heart damage.

The internal production and secretion of this so-called "bad cholesterol" is the manner in which the body repairs its own damage. I call LDL cholesterol the body's own spackle. When picture hooks cause holes in your walls, you simply go to a hardware store to purchase a can of spackle. That fills the hole. Many events are responsible for heart damage.

The largest heart study in American history (Castelli's Framingham Heart Study) has identified sulfur based amino acids (from eating animal protein) as the key to identifying what causes the greatest amount of damage. So, the body's antidote to Atkins Diet insanity is to neutralize the damage by making more LDL cholesterol.

The higher the cholesterol reading, the greater is the damage that must be repaired. So, what do naive meat eaters do when faced with high cholesterol rates? They seek doctor's advice. Doctors prescribe cholesterol lowering drugs which accomplish the following:

Cholesterol lowering drugs take away the body's mechanism by which the damage is repaired. In other words, cholesterol lowering drugs make things worse. Why not simply eliminate those factors which cause the damage? Animal protein (meat and dairy) contains an abundance of sulfur-based amino acids. The worst foods to eat (the highest levels of sulfur) are chicken and eggs. You do not want the rotten egg smell of eggs infusing into each of your body's cells. One must neutralize the resulting acid. To do so, calcium is leached from where it is stored: in the skeletal system. For this reason, those living in meat-eating nations have the highest rates of bone disease.

So, what can you do if you have high cholesterol? Do one of two things. Take cholesterol lowering drugs to mask the symptoms and take away the body's innate ability to repair the damage that you do by eating caustic animal proteins.

Or...change your diet and furnish your body with clean fuel.

Heart disease is America's number-one killer. The choice is yours to either be a victim, or have a change of heart and let food be your medicine.
