Heart Attack: Don't Have One!

One of America’s leading heart surgeons admitted, “I’d probably performed more than a thousand coronary bypass operations. But I was beginning to find that a great many of my patients were back on the operating table within three to five years. Many of the others were dead.”

Did you know that you have 75,000 miles of blood vessels in your body that carry oxygen-rich blood to every organ, gland, etc.? When your various organs and glands can’t get blood, you lose a leg, need a new liver, heart, or kidney—or you die. When the circulatory system can’t deliver your blood throughout your body, your lungs, brain, heart, legs, sexual organs, etc. are “starved” for oxygen and other nutrients and you become a candidate for heart failure.

Your arteries become clogged with plaque, a collection of dead cells, collagen, fats, and cholesterol—all cemented together with calcium. The walls of your arteries and veins become caked with plaque and gradually clog the passageway as the lining becomes increasingly hardened providing little or no elasticity.

Then, part of the debris breaks off and moves along the circulatory system, hits the brain or heart shutting off the blood to the heart resulting in heart failure. About 90% of heart attacks are caused by such a clot in the arteries. This condition affects about 90% of Americans over age 50, killing about one million Americans each year!

The answer from the specialists has been angioplasty where they balloon the blocked arteries to permit blood to pass. However, there have been no studies to prove it is effective, and this $4 billion per year business kills 9,000 people per year.

Also, angioplasty is a very short fix, if at all, and the next step is bypass surgery. But bypass is also a temporary fix where they take a vein from a patient’s leg and patch it in place to bypass the clogged arteries so blood can flow to the heart.

What most surgeons don’t tell patients is that 80% of all bypass grafts clog up again within 7 years, and even if the bypass is successful, it only solves a small portion of the 75,000 miles of hardened vessels that transfer blood.

Surgeons also don’t tell patients that bypass kills 28,000 Americans each year and two studies prove that bypass surgery does not permit patients to live longer!

One of America’s leading heart surgeons admitted, “I’d probably performed more than a thousand coronary bypass operations. But I was beginning to find that a great many of my patients were back on the operating table within three to five years. Many of the others were dead.”

The surgeon added, “And even those who ‘got well’ were never the same again. The sad fact was that in all my years as a doctor, I never saw anyone go through cardiac surgery and come out the same. There are personality changes, memory loss…a transformation happens in the operating room that changes the patient forever.” Wow, what a confession from a major surgeon in South Dakota.

I will provide vital information in following articles that could save your life. Until then, get the lard off, exercise, eat right and don’t hold grudges.
