What’s the real cause of heart disease?

Framingham and the Muddy Waters – part 1
What’s the real cause of heart disease? How do we most effectively estimate someone’s risk?

Is it possible that we’ve missed the big elephant in the room? Could it be a waste of time to focus on cholesterol? And if so, what should we do instead to prevent heart disease?

Ivor Cummins explains it all – in his very logical yet entertaining way – in this talk from the recent Low Carb USA conference.

    Late cardiologist, Dr. SA Mortensen found in his clinical trials that heart failure stems from an energy-starved heart. Before his death, he would go on to administer one of the more significant Gold clinical trials on heart health in recent history - with HF patients reducing cardiovascular mortality by 43% by combining conventional therapy with 3x100mg of myoqinon ubiquinone over a 2-year period. If you want the stats, look up Q-Symbio on NIH or the researchers' own stats at http://www.q-symbio.com

    So is ubiquinone a form of CoQ 10. I have read it is good for the heart and brain. I have read some reports that link taurine as being good for the heart. This study about milk and dairy not being associated with heart problems was released today.
