Cholesterol Doesn’t Cause Heart Disease

Hi all! I’m back to my blog after several months of trying to find my balance of school, work, and life.

A friend posted an article that I want to share. It’s quite appropriate because I’m learning about heart disease right now. It’s an article from a heart surgeon speaking on the topic of heart disease.

I found it interesting for several reasons discussed:
 
1) mechanism by which arteries (the system by which blood goes away from the heart; vein take blood back to the heart),
2) description of acute and chronic inflammation and how the foods we ingest can cause inflammation, and
3) call for change in diet: meat, veggies & fruits (Paleo diet???)
 
In health,
