Stop heart disease - Cholesterol and calcium myths revealed


Heart disease
(NaturalNews) Every 40 seconds, an American will die of heart disease, accounting for one out of every three deaths in the United States. Cardiovascular disease is responsible for 17.3 million fatalities per year, making it the leading cause of death worldwide. Plus, that number is expected to grow to more than 23.6 million by 2030, according to the American Heart Association.

Unfortunately, most people have been kept in the dark about the issues surrounding heart disease - including the actual threat of cholesterol and the danger of calcium supplementation.

Discover the myths about cholesterol and calcium, and learn how to stop heart disease in its tracks. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD will uncover the truth behind the most widely believed misconceptions about cholesterol and calcium, while revealing how we can prevent a heart attack.

What most people know about heart disease is wrong

The American Heart Association estimates that over 800,000 people in the U.S. die each year of heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular issues. In fact, cardiovascular disease claims more lives than all forms of cancer combined. Processed junk food and unhealthy lifestyle habits are the biggest culprits. But misconceptions about calcium (and cholesterol) have only made the problem worse.

According to Dr. Levy, the typical American menu is bursting at the seams with calcium-rich foods, while consumers are urged to increase supplementation of this valuable mineral. Yet, pumping all that calcium into your system is not without consequences.

Readily available, calcium has long been used as a staple dietary supplement, especially among women. For example, post-menopausal women are urged to add dietary and supplemental calcium to their meals. Unfortunately, increasing calcium intake will NOT prevent osteoporosis and actually increases your risk of disease, according to Dr. Levy.

False beliefs can threaten your health and shorten your lifespan

Everyone likes to think of science as unbiased and completely objective. Unfortunately, the ongoing quest for funding and profits can have a major influence on how scientific findings are interpreted and reported. The result is a divided scientific community when it comes to the best ways to avoid disease and maintain optimal health.

Varying viewpoints from scientists and health professionals can leave you confused about the best ways to avoid disease. In reality, some of the most widely held beliefs about heart health are actually contributing to cardiovascular disease.

On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, you'll discover:

• Why calcium increases the risk of disease
• The unpopular truth about calcium supplements
• What a "proper" cholesterol level really is (the answer will surprise you)
• Which nutritional supplements are best to avoid a heart attack plus, much more!
