These Causes of Heart Attack
Will Surprise You

If you want to know the causes of heart attack I suggest you don't look to the TV adds which tout Lipitor, Crestor and other statin drugs. 

It is my hope that you will find the information about the real reasons for a heart attack thought provoking and helpful. 

You may find some of this information hard to accept.

I'm Gene Millen. Nearly 20 years ago a heart surgeon, sawed open my chest and stitched in bypasses to six of my favorite heart arteries. It wasn't as much fun as you might think...and started me on a journey to helping others avoid my mistakes.

It's my aim to help you understand what the really important heart attack risk factors are and how you can improve your odds of having a vital and healthy heart for a long, long time.

The conventional wisdom is that one of the main causes of heart attack is high cholesterol, and that the high cholesterol is due to the saturated fat that we enjoy in the meat, eggs and dairy that our ancestors thrived on.

The researchers mistakenly concluded that because there was cholesterol in our arteries that this was the cause of the plaque that resulted in clogging. In fact cholesterol is essential for a healthy body and brain and our liver manufactures far more of it than we eat.

The pharmaceutical industry spends millions to convince us (and our doctors) that Lipitor, Crestor or one of their statin drug generics are just what you need for a healthy heart.

Statin drugs do lower LDL cholesterol, however if you are betting your life on these drugs to save you from a heart attack you could be in for an unpleasant surprise.

For example the fine print disclosure that has been appearing on Crestor's television commercials is not exactly a ringing endorsement of their drug. Here's what it says in a type size large enough to read:

"Crestor has NOT been shown to
prevent heart disease or heart attacks."

The INTERHEART study, which was recently published in the prestigious Lancet Medical Journal, describes the primary causes of heart attack or stroke.

And guess what? High LDL cholesterol is not in the top three!

Robert Superko, MD, director of research at Berkeley Heart Lab tells us what most doctors fail to mention.

“Cholesterol is not the problem we thought it was. Relying on cholesterol levels as a risk factor for coronary artery disease may not be wise since 80% of coronary patients have the same cholesterol as individuals who do not develop the disease.” 

If you are are, or have been, taking a statin drug such as Lipitor, Crestor or Vytorin and are not taking CoQ10 you need to learn about the benefits of Accel.
