Did you know that:
The Angiogram commonly used for diagnosing heart problems is highly inaccurate
There is no evidence that coronary bypass surgery or allow angioplasties extend life
Blood cholesterol levels are ineffective in determining heart attack risk and much more accurate measurements exist but are seldom used
Cholesterol-lowering drugs do not extend life, but acually increase death rate
The primary focus in the medical industry is to make money, so alot of advice we recive is not in our best interest
We pay an estimated $45 billion per year on preventative and treatment measures for heart disease that don't work
If your doctor recommends getting an angiogram, coronary bypass surgery, balloon angioplasty, or taking cholesterol-lowering drugs your best course of action may be to run out the door. For most people these procedures/treatments are not effective and are completely unnecessary. The most popular medical procedures are the most profitable for the healthy care industry but are often the least effective. Hundreds of thousands of people each year are deceived in undergoing expensive medical treatments tht will do no good and may even do a great deal of harm. Alternative procedures which are highly effective, low-risk, and inexpensive are often ignored or even ridiculed. Recommending expensive, high-risk procedures over the cheaper, more effective ones amounts to nothing more than fraud. If you had a choice of going through a risky $20,000 surgical procedure or simply taking a vitamin supplement, which would you choose? Most patients are not given that choice.
