O blog sueco 56 kilos destacou este artigo. Super interessante! (O artigo é em inglese.)
O famoso cirugão cardíaco americano Dr. Dwight Lundell explica como a teoria antiga, que o colesterol é o vilão nas problemas arteriais, criou mais problemas de saúde ao invés de diminuir. O machucado e a inflamação no nossos vasos sanguíneos são causado por a dieta baixo gordura recomendado por médicos por décadas, como um resultado do este medo do colesterol.
Alguns “quotes” do artigo:
Let me repeat that: The injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine.
What are the biggest culprits of chronic inflammation? Quite simply, they are the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, flour and all the products made from them) and the excess consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many processed foods. ”
” There is no escaping the fact that the more we consume prepared and processed foods, the more we trip the inflammation switch little by little each day. The human body cannot process, nor was it designed to consume, foods packed with sugars and soaked in omega-6 oils.”
” Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.
