Renowned Heart Surgeon Apologizes. Cholesterol is NOT the problem. Inflammation IS.

Update: 5/29/15: A reader has informed me that the link to this article no longer works. Here’s another url where it can be found.

This is the best and clearest detailed description of what’s so terribly wrong with the doctor-recommended usual American diet, and how it has actually caused inflammation, and therefore the diseases endemic to society today. Of course, those of us who switched to a saner way of eating a long time ago don’t need this essay, unless they want an informed way to discuss with others why changing their diet will reduce or prevent obesity, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and other chronic diseases.

For me, the key has long been, when I do “go to the supermarket,” avoid the middle aisles altogether, because that’s where the processed food sits on the shelf, never rotting. I pretty much stick to the fresh produce section, hopefully organic and/or local. More and more large grocery chains are now accommodating this changed (and very old-fashioned) way of eating.

Big Pharma will, however, lose out; 25% of people in the U.S. are on expensive statin medications. That’s one out of four people! Truly astonishing. Which reminds me of another report I saw yesterday, which states that 600,000 Americans each consume more than $50,000 worth of pharmaceuticals annually!

Ye gods! We must be living in parallel worlds.

    I learned about this years ago from Dr. Natasha Campbell McBride who created the Gut And Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) diet, and from the Weston A. Price Foundation, and from The International Network of Cholesterol Skeptics (THINCS) http://thincs.org/

    As for statins, they are untested and unproven, and the pharma-pushers want to expand the use of statins to children and elderly. $$$!

    Interestingly enough, whenever I try to access ‘World Renowned Surgeon etc’ I get ‘Server not found’. Looks like it’s been removed. Joanna
