Statins may actually make your heart health worse

Written By Betty van der Mark on Tuesday, August 14, 2018 | 2:40 AM

Statin drugs benefit just 1 percent of the population. This means that out of 100 people treated with the drugs, one person will have one less heart attack. I read this when I was surfing the internet. I know that many studies are sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry, I don't trust these studies, it is not about the health of people, it is all about the money!

I'm not a doctor, but I'm worried that many drugs we are taking making us more sick than better. I have collected some videos about Statins that openend my eyes:

Interesting videos about Intermittent Fasting for Weight Loss

Written By Betty van der Mark on Monday, August 6, 2018 | 3:48 AM

If you tell someone that you do Intermittent Fasting, many will react as if you have lost your mind. You will get reactions like; "you will starve yourself", "you need lots of fruits and bread to survive", "all that fat will give you a heart attack" bla bla bla. The worst thing is that these people don't know anything about Intermittent Fasting or eating Keto proof food and they also refuse to learn about the benefits of fasting and low carb eating.

Why won’t the pharmaceutical industry study it? It is simple, when people go Intermittent Fasting and stop eating sugar and high carb food, the pharmaceutical industry won't make money. Fasting lowers insulin levels, weight loss, lower risk of diabetes, lower oxidative stress and inflammation, improved heart health, increased growth of new neurons in the brain, and it may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Many people after Intermittent Fasting and eating low carb, don't need their blood pressure medication or diabetes type 2 medication anymore, so they will lose a lot of money! So why study it?

Here are some YouTube videos with really good information about Intermittent Fasting and Keto:

Low levels of omega-3 can cause preterm birth

Written By Betty van der Mark on Sunday, August 5, 2018 | 5:44 AM

Health authorities already recommend that pregnant women eat fish, but avoid those high in mercury, including swordfish, tuna and shark. The findings indicated that pregnant women who had low plasma levels of long chain n-3 fatty acids -- found in fish oil -- in their first and second trimesters were at a significantly higher risk of preterm birth as compared with women who had higher levels of these fatty acids, said lead author Sjurdur F. Olsen from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston. Preterm birth is a leading cause of neonatal death and is associated with cognitive deficiencies and cardiometabolic problems later in life among survivors.

Low levels of acetyl-L-carnitine linked to depression

Written By Betty van der Mark on Wednesday, August 1, 2018 | 3:15 AM

In a study involving humans, researchers examined patients who had been diagnosed with depression. Results showed depressed patients had much lower levels of acetyl-L-carnitine in their blood. Researchers also found patients with the lowest levels had the most severe cases of depression.

In a statement, Natalie Rasgon, an author on the study and professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford, said the study offers "an exciting addition to our understanding of the mechanisms of depressive illness."

The study is publicized in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
