Heart surgeon speaks out on what really causes heart disease


This persuasive text I found today from a link on the Idea Health & Fitness website is written by a US heart surgeon and was published in a journal called Prevent Disease in 2012. It supports the popular hypothesis that low-fat, high-processed-carbohydrate diets cause excess chronic inflammation in the body, which is what leads to heart disease, diabetes and strokes. Although the article is six years old it is a good summary of how, in his opinion, high-carb diets have created damage to the health of millions, and that cholesterol is not harmful on its own.

Although this seems a long article, it was a quick read as it’s not overly full of jargon, and it’s easy to follow the argument.

Pass the butter please!
