orthodoxy on causes of heart disease



this is great!

Fred Kummerow, a professor of comparative biosciences at the University of Illinois, describes his work, which contradicts commonly held notions about the role of dietary cholesterol. Credit: L. Brian Stauffe,

""In my view, the biggest setback in heart disease treatment has been the overuse of statins for the treatment of high cholesterol."

So, why all this fuss for products to reduce cholesterol? do they really work in protecting us against atheromatosis and Cardiovascular Diseases?


 Now compare the views of Kummerow to our own views...on the causes of heart disease as presented here...

and also check here about the side-effects of statins... 

They found that, compared with pravastatin, treatment with atorvastatin, rosuvastatin, or simvastatin—but not fluvastatin or lovastatin—was associated with an increased risk of incident diabetes in statin-naive older patients without diabetes.

------------

so, in brief where do we stand now?
how can we protect ourselves against CVDs...

the answer is going to be published very soon in a hypothesis paper of ours in JFS 

watch this space :-)
