Nationally-known weight loss, nutritional health expert and bestselling author Dr. Jonny Bowden returns again as our guest today in Episode 632 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!
Heart disease is now the #1 killer despite the fact it is almost completely preventable through lifestyle choices. However, traditional heart disease protocols--with an emphasis on lowering cholesterol--have it completely wrong.
After his publisher wanted him to write a book about lowering cholesterol for improving heart health, Dr. Jonny Bowden had to convince them that emerging new science is showing that cholesterol levels are a poor predictor of heart disease and that standard prescriptions for lowering it, such as the highly ineffective low-fat, high-carb diets and serious, side-effect-causing statin drugs, obscure the real causes of heart disease. Even doctors at leading institutions have been misled for years based on creative reporting of research results from pharmaceutical companies intent on supporting the $31-billion-a-year cholesterol-lowering drug industry.
Listen in to Jimmy and Jonny talk about his brand new book on this subject entitled The Great Cholesterol Myth: Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won't Prevent Heart Disease and the Statin-Free Plan That Will releasing on Thursday, November 1, 2012. Learn why medical professionals obsess over cholesterol numbers, the role statin drug companies have played in perpetuating the lie, how to truly improve heart health naturally and so much more. If you've got "high cholesterol" and are worried about what it means to your cardiovascular health, then you need to listen to what Dr. Jonny Bowden has to share in today's interview.
