Dr. Fred Kummerow, who is nearly 100 years old, was the first scientist to document the toxicity of trans fats
Over the past 60 years, his research has repeatedly demonstrated that there’s NO connection between high cholesterol and plaque formation that leads to heart disease.
Dr. Kummerow’s work shows that it’s not cholesterol that causes heart disease; rather it’s the trans fats and oxidized cholesterol that are to blame. 95 percent of the food that most Americans eat is processed and processed food is where all the trans fat lies. Trans fats prevent the synthesis of prostacyclin, which is necessary to keep your blood flowing. When your body cannot produce prostacyclin, blood clots form, and you may succumb to sudden death
To protect your heart health, you also need to address your insulin and leptin resistance, which is the result of eating a diet too high in sugars and grains.
