THE REAL REASON FOR HEART ATTACKS
For decades, coronary heart disease has been the number one killer in this country. Doctors say there are five risk factors: elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and smoking that cause heart attacks. Patients have been told if they keep these five risk factors under control, they’re guaranteed not to have a heart attack. Dr. Houston says that’s not true. He says there are more than 400 risk factors and that coronary heart disease doesn't come from just cholesterol. Heart disease is the result of inflammation, oxidative stress (free radical damage) and autoimmune damage to the arteries. Simply taking medications to lower cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar may give patients a false sense of security.
