What if it’s sugar, not cholesterol, causing heart disease?

Dr. John Cooke is an MD with a PhD in vascular biology.

When I first met him, he was head of the Metabolic Clinic at Stanford University.

I told him my theory of nerve compression. He invited me to work with him on the molecule he was studying, asymmetric dimethyl arginine.

We conducted a test of about 160 patients who suffered from diabetic neuropathy.

We found that all of them had elevated levels of asymmetric dimethyl arginine in their systems.

But it wasn’t just diabetics.

The same could be said for patients with multiple sclerosis. And plenty of other maladies.

Now we were on to something.

The problem, it turned out, is sugar.

For instance, Dr. Cooke explained to me how the lining of our blood vessels, called the endothelium, is smooth as Teflon. Or it’s supposed to be.

But whenever we eat sugar, the liver secretes cholesterol which is pushed through the blood and accumulates over time on the walls of the blood vessels, causing plaque.

The more plaque that builds up, the harder it is for blood to move through the vessels.

This leads to a condition called atherosclerosis, better known as “hardening of the arteries.”

The arteries literally thicken and lose flexibility.

Which, in turn, causes heart disease—but again, the problem isn’t cholesterol.

That’s just a symptom.

The problem is sugar, which far too many of us consume in increasingly vast amounts.

This is just one more example of how a diet rich in sugar—now so common in Western culture—is causing consistent and terrible damage.

I consider it a modern plague, and insist that it must be stopped.

If you’re currently suffering from any number of diseases you’re having a hard time overcoming, consider giving me a call.

I’d love to hear about your medical history and strategize how we can get you back to enjoying your life.
