heart-disease(NaturalHealth365) Every 40 seconds, an American will die of heart disease, accounting for one out of every three deaths in the country. Cardiovascular disease is responsible for 17.3 million fatalities per year, making it the leading cause of death worldwide.  Plus, that number is expected to grow to more than 23.6 million by 2030, according to the American Heart Association.

Unfortunately, most people have been kept in the dark about the issues surrounding heart disease – including the actual threat of cholesterol and the danger of calcium supplementation.

Discover the myths about cholesterol and calcium, and learn how to stop heart disease in its tracks. On the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD will uncover the truth behind the most widely believed misconceptions about cholesterol and calcium, while revealing how we can prevent a heart attack.

What most people know about heart disease is wrong

The American Heart Association estimates that over 800,000 people in the U.S. die each year of heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular issues.  In fact, cardiovascular disease claims more lives than all forms of cancer combined.  Processed junk food and unhealthy lifestyle habits are the biggest culprits.  But misconceptions about calcium (and cholesterol) have only made the problem worse.

According to Dr. Levy, the typical American menu is bursting at the seams with calcium-rich foods, while consumers are urged to increase supplementation of this valuable mineral. Yet, pumping all that calcium into your system is not without consequences.

Readily available, calcium has long been used as a staple dietary supplement, especially among women.  For example, post-menopausal women are urged to add dietary and supplemental calcium to their meals.  Unfortunately, increasing calcium intake will NOT prevent osteoporosis and actually increases your risk of disease, according to Dr. Levy.

False beliefs can threaten your health and shorten your lifespan

Everyone likes to think of science as unbiased and completely objective. Unfortunately, the ongoing quest for funding and profits can have a major influence on how scientific findings are interpreted and reported. The result is a divided scientific community when it comes to the best ways to avoid disease and maintain optimal health.

Varying viewpoints from scientists and health professionals can leave you confused about the best ways to avoid disease.  In reality, some of the most widely held beliefs about heart health are actually contributing to cardiovascular disease.

On the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour, you’ll discover:

• Why calcium increases the risk of disease
• The unpopular truth about calcium supplements
• What a “proper” cholesterol level really mean (the answer will surprise you)
• Which nutritional supplements are best to avoid a heart attack plus, much more!

    Our doctor still recommends calcium supplements. Fosamax is what he said we should take. My husband looked at me and we both had the same amazed look. Did he see reports or read anything on the side effect?

    I just figured we had to eat more green leafy vegetables such as kale. I wonder if he knows this is what you should do? I really doubt that he even has a clue.

      too much kale has negative impact on thyroid. find a nutritionist who can balance your diet with balanced intake of nutrients through food.

  • Jessie Hughes

    I am looking forward to this talk. Drugs are never the answer, so how can they be in this case.

  • Rosemary Marley

    Calcium is not the answer. I am a middle aged women and one of the questions doctors ask is do I take a calcium supplement. They are thinking of the blockbuster calcium pill, which is known to be dangerous.

    I even know that it is not a matter of taking a calcium pill you need other minerals. Without good hormonal function, adequate digestion capacity and sufficient stomach acid the calcium supplement is useless.

    I am home recovering from a mild cardiac event. Dr. Levy may be just the person I want to hear from. I am looking for some sound advice.

    I was on many pills meant to protect my heart from such an event. They didn’t, so I would like to learn about a better approach.
