Little Known Way to Reduce The Risk of Heart Attack and Stroke by 75%!


This is little known to people. You can actually reduce the risk of a heart attack and stroke by 75%. Do you want to know how? Which is the main reason for a stroke? Cholesterol. A villain in the eyes of many. But there have been some misunderstandings concerning cholesterol down the road, and we’d like to discuss something which should be of greater importance.
First of all, if one even looks at cholesterol, it should be the ratios between the cholesterol types and not the total number itself.
For example, let’s say that a person’s total cholesterol is 300. We can practically hear some of you gasping in terror.
However, if the good HDL cholesterol happens to be 85 to 90 (which is not uncommon for women), then the ratio is all well, and there is no heightened risk.
But many would like you to believe that 300 is a dangerous number when it comes to this issue and this is so they can try and shove statin drugs down the throat of those they have scared in the first place.
It all comes down to the ratio between bad LDL cholesterol and good HDL Cholesterol. And if one really wishes to go down into the fine details, one can send their blood test to a laboratory that breaks it into all kinds of cholesterol fractions, not just LDL and HDL.
So, the main thing we’ve learned is that paying attention to the ratio is what really matters. But here is an even more important question: Keeping track of your cholesterol levels, we mean.
Well, many would argue it is to prevent serious health problems like heart attack and stroke.
But do you know what will cut the risk (be it your risk, our risk or anyone else’s risk) of getting a stroke or heart attack by as much as 75%?
It’s a little thing called ‘donating blood’.
During a research back in the late 90s, people who had donated blood and kept donating once or twice on a yearly basis were proven to have their stroke and heart attack risk lowered by 75%.
Same thing happened during a similar research in Scandinavia, only with an even larger group of test subjects.
If the majority found out about this, what would happen to the cholesterol medication sales? Mind you, there isn’t a single medication out there which can drop this risk by as much as 75 to 80%.
So, What’s The Real Cause?
When the blood gets too thick, it braids the walls of the arteries. This is when blood is thicker than it should be. Not many may know this, but blood is naturally abrasive. What it does is abrade the walls of the arteries, the branch points.
And it is precisely this abrasion which causes the inflammation. After all, most of us have heard of cardiovascular inflammation. And if it is bad enough, it has to be ‘covered over’.
Cholesterol covered plaque! The cholesterol is not entirely, but still somewhat a response to any inflammation of the cardiovascular kind.
So, indeed, it acts as a predictor since too much can mean you’re inflamed, even though it’s not the cause of your inflammation.
Now, can you tell us what the 2nd function of a woman’s uterus is? We all know the first function, to support a newborn. But there is a second. And it’s more obvious than you think. Releasing blood. Menstruation.
This is a natural process which protects the mother from getting a heart attack or stroke so that she can live long enough to raise her children until they can ‘fend for themselves’.
And since human history is rather long, looking back most women have had their children ranging from their late teens to their early twenties, and twenty years afterward they were still in their pre-menopausal stage, meaning, still getting their periods!
In other words, they were keeping their blood less thick. And how many women in their pre-menopausal stage of life have strokes or heart attacks? Naturally, this assuming they don’t smoke or otherwise endanger themselves, like taking birth control pills.
If you were to ask a doctor what’s the normal blood viscosity? On average, for women it’s 5 points less than men. That’s because, naturally, men don’t have periods once a month. They don’t lose blood once a month.
Women after they reach menopause suddenly have the same risk as men of getting a stroke or disease. And no, it’s not entirely due to the loss of estrogen. It’s partly because of that, yes, but still not entirely.
But, just like men, if post-menopausal women decide to donate blood on a regular basis (twice a year) their risk of getting a stroke or heart attack will also drop by 75%!
The commercials want to convince you that the only way you will lower your bad LDL cholesterol levels and reduce that risk is by taking medications.

Oh, but never mind the side effects and potential complications that may arise while and after taking those drugs.
