Drug Companies Hijack Clinton's Heart News
By Dr. Donald A. Miller, Thu Dec 8th
When Bill Clinton was scheduled for heart surgery, reportersspoke of how he had been a junk food addict, loving burgers,fries, and shakes, even eating a whole pie at one sitting.
After his quadruple bypass surgery, the major TV news showstalked about how Bill had stopped taking his statin drugs, andshowed many of the pricey brands of pills.
Naughty, naughty, bad Bill.Whoa! Stop! Time out!
Bad eating habits can clog arteries, despite any medicationstaken. Good eating habits can reduce blood cholesterol levelsand the likelihood of plaque deposits. In fact, several medicalstudies have shown that lifestyle changes can even reverse heartdisease, with or without drugs.
For example, do a web search on "Dean Ornish".
Dr. Ornish's "Life Choice Diet"http://www.fatfree.com/diets/ornish.html is a low-fat vegetarianway of eating with less than 10% of calories from fat. The focusis on beans, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, withprocessed foods and nonfat dairy products consumed inmoderation. Simple sugars
and alcohols, like fat, are to beavoided.
In my "Easy Health Diet", I don't insist on a totally vegetariandiet. I do, however, show that it is easy to curb fat friedfoods and fatty sauces, and to replace a large portion of fourlegged meats with traditional soy foods. Of course, moderateexercise helps, as in my "Easy Exercise All Ages."
Tip: If you can't find your cheek bones and jaw bone in themirror without using your fingers, you are FAT! If you aremerely "pleasingly plump", you are still at elevated risk. Youare inviting a whole host of possibly fatal diseases.
Take responsibility for your own health. And be very carefulinterpreting news. Statin pills and prayers do less for healththan good diet and moderate exercise.
Sometimes drug companies make me sick!
Naughty, naughty, bad drug companies.
