(Natural News) The pharmaceutical industry goes to great lengths to ensure that the only narrative presented to patients is the one that financially benefits them the most. This is especially true in the case of patients at risk of or already coping with cardiovascular disease. Relying on statin drugs and other pharmaceutical treatments may be what most doctors recommend, but the truth is that heart disease and cardio-related health problems can be prevented — and even reversed — with better nutrition, better lifestyle choices and a better approach to overall health.
Prescription drugs can be a thing of the past, but there is a multi-billion dollar industry at stake. Big Pharma has proven time and time again that the industry as a whole cannot be trusted to act in the best interest of their patients. The opioid epidemic is more than enough proof of that — especially given the recent evidence which shows pharma companies knew how dangerous these drugs were, hid the facts, bribed doctors and encouraged reckless prescribing tactics. Big Pharma exists to make money — not to heal people.
The latest book from Natural News, Prevent & Reverse Heart Disease and Other Cardio-Related Events, explains why pharmaceuticals are failing heart disease patients, and how you can heal or prevent heart disease naturally instead.
Big Pharma spews big lies
One of the biggest lies propagated by the pharma industry is the notion that you need a statin for heart health. Estimates suggest that roughly one out every four American adults over the age of 45 takes a statin drug. Millions of people take a statin every day, believing the drug will “heal” their high cholesterol levels and prevent heart attacks. But evidence shows that statins don’t work nearly as well as the industry wants you to believe — and more importantly, studies show statins can be harmful. Some evidence shows that statins expedite the entire aging process, weaken the immune system and contribute to neurological issues.
Even the FDA has been forced to recognize that using statin drugs can increase the risk of cognitive impairment and type 2 diabetes. Cardiology insiders say that many doctors feel that everyone over a certain age should be taking a statin, regardless of their actual health or biomarkers. But statins are not a cure; at best, they might be considered a band-aid.
In a recent interview, Dr. Jack Wolfson, a board-certified cardiologist of 16 years, told Natural News founder Mike Adams that problems with blood pressure are not caused by a lack of blood pressure medication — these issues are caused by a deficiency in something your body actually needs. This holds true for many health issues facing people today, especially heart disease as a whole.
“Conventional cardiology is killing millions of people because they’re giving people the wrong information, and to me, that’s leading to their early death,” Dr. Wolfson said, noting further that the “band-aid approach” to healthcare is visibly ineffective.

Natural options for heart health do exist
Across the board, top natural health experts agree that pharmaceuticals are not all they’re cracked up to be. In fact, in many cases, these drugs can cause more harm than good — especially when drugs are used as a replacement for better nutrition and a healthier lifestyle.
Sayer Ji, founder of Green Med Info, posits that many modern diseases and ailments are caused by nutritional deficiency or exposure to toxins. The overly sedentary lifestyle maintained by most modern people isn’t helping matters any, either.
Ultimately, what this all means is that much of the disease we face in today’s world can be prevented, and perhaps even reversed completely, with changes to your diet and lifestyle.
The fact of the matter is that what you put into your body has a direct effect on your overall health, and when you eat, you are either feeding disease or fighting it. With the right nutrition, you can turn the tables.
