The Real Cause Of Heart Disease
I was so glad to read this article on heart disease today. There are many articles like it published, but they don't get much attention.
My mom died of heart disease. For decades her ill-informed doctors guided her away from health and toward an early death.
These doctors were blatantly lied to about the facts regarding saturated fats. Lied to!
They had no internet, no whistle blowers, and no trouble shooting bloggers to dispel their beliefs about commercial oils and and trans fats. They did have their trade unions restricting their scope of practice.
They believe that statin drugs are the cure and that cholesterol is bad. Even though the risks for heart disease and stroke has only gone up for years.
Yet now, even if a doctor is an expert in nutrition the scope of practice and the "guidelines" (strictly enforced rules) of insurance companies mandates that the physician uses it as a last resort.
The facts about saturated fats need to be reviewed. Truly each of us needs to do our own research on healthy daily meals.
It is difficult to prepare each meal from scratch. Now that one fast food chain offers a grass-fed beef burger, it's my permission slip to drive through once in a while, and get one.
Yet if I buy grass-fed beef myself I can see the country of origin and the certification stamp on the package. Same for dairy products or grass fed whey protein sources. Should I trust that fast food chain?
Evidently I trust it enough. I understand it is only following a marketing trend.
It's too bad doctors can't follow it too.
