Do you have atherosclerosis?
Are you worried about atherosclerosis?

What is atherosclerosis (arteriosclerosis)? It's a disease, a serious medical condition, characterized by the deposition of plaques on the innermost walls of arteries.

What is it blamed on?

Atherosclerosis is often blamed on:
  • Diabetes types 1 and 2,
  • High cholesterol foods,
  • High cholesterol readings (per laboratory tests),
  • Hypertension,
  • Lack of exercise,
  • Obesity, or
  • Smoking.

What does the doctor say?

As to what causes atherosclerosis, if you ask a typical medical doctor, chances are he (or she):
  • Won't know, or will pretend not to know.
  • Will tell you your atherosclerosis is caused by your "bad" cholesterol,
  • Won't tell you what the root cause of your "bad" cholesterol is, and
  • Won't tell you that you would die, if you eliminated all of your "bad" cholesterol.

Why is he (or she) negative about your "bad" cholesterol?

Because he (or she) wants to sell you the idea of taking statins (cholesterol-lowering drugs), for example Lipitor®, Tricor®, Vytorin®, Zetia®, and Zocor®

Or because he (or she) wants to sell you the idea of a surgical procedure (for example coronary angioplasty, coronary artery bypass surgery, atherectomy, or laser angioplasty).

However, chances are he (or she) will forget to tell you about the risks associated with surgical procedures, and the terrible side effects of statins — such as muscle problems, the sexual dysfunction, and the increased risk of getting cancer.

Therefore, I suggest you say 'no' to statins, and say 'no' to surgeries. And, for the prevention of atherosclerosis, I suggest you keep improving your diet.

I suggest you seek advice from scientists, not medical doctors. Why? Because, by avoiding the typical medical doctor, their drugs, surgeries and suggestions, you will likely avoid all kinds of health problems. ...More >>
