Cardiovascular Health

The strongest dietary predictor of heart disease, including cholesterol and hypertension, is SUGAR! Research supports the true influence on your cholesterol level is NOT cholesterol in your diet but instead:

  • Stress
  • Physical Activity
  • Obesity
  • Illness
  • Smoking
  • Genetics
  • Alcohol
  • Medication
  • Carbohydrates

50+ years of Research has shown:

  • Lowering blood cholesterol through diet is possible, yet research has shown that lowering your cholesterol has no beneficial effect on heart disease.
  • Low cholesterol levels, or methods used to attain them, increase incidence of other serious, life-threatening illnesses.

More research supports that low cholesterol makes you moody:

  • Depression and anger decline with a high fat diet but increase with a low fat, high carbohydrate diet.
  • Increased frequency and severity of depression and increased suicide rates are associated with a low cholesterol diet.

High blood pressure could be the result of an allergy, blood sugar imbalance, immune issue or something else you can change.
