It was reported in 2014 that cardiovascular disease accounted for 27% of all deaths in the United Kingdom, which was only 2% less than cancer. However, the WHO (World Health Organisation) have estimated that more than ‘80% of premature heart attacks and strokes are preventable’, with a healthy diet and other lifestyle factors being central to this.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is an umbrella term for all the diseases of the heart and circulation including angina, congenital heart disease, coronary heart disease, heart attack and stroke. Coronary heart disease and stroke may be caused by the same problem – atherosclerosis. This is when the arteries become narrowed due to damage and thickening of the blood vessel wall with increased deposits of substances such as cholesterol and calcium which form atherosclerotic plaques.
There are a ton of misconceptions surrounding cholesterol and heart disease. Rather than going with the conventional flow, following a low-fat diet and filling that statin prescription, I encourage you to protect your heart using the real food, supplementation and lifestyle modification approach…no side effects and better results!
