Put Your Heart in Your Mouth By Natasha Campbell-McBride
We have been misled and deceived by the pharmaceutical giants, food
giants, medical industry, educational institutions, insurance companies,
government and legislature. They all benefit from the sick, who are at the mercy
of their systemic partnership and shared lies that cholesterol and saturated fats
being the primary cause of heart disease. In fact, cholesterol is actually an
integral and necessary feature of every single cell membrane. Processed foods
and malnourishment due to diet and lifestyle factors are the true cause of heart
disease. If those “Health Partners” truly wanted us to be healthy, toxic chemicals
like margarine and vegetable oils should have never been allowed and
encouraged to replace real butter, and quality animal fats. Instead, we must
protect ourselves from toxic food and chemicals.
In this book by Natasha Campbell-McBride M.D., I learned more about cardiovascular health.
For instance “low blood cholesterol has been routinely recorded in criminals who
committed murder and other violent crimes, people with aggressive and violent
personalities, people prone to suicide and people with aggressive social behavior
and low self-control.” (pg. 19) It amazes me that the development of cholesterol
lowering medications would even be considered as safe for developing children.
A person with active inflammation will have high LDL, because cholesterol
produced in the liver is sent to the site of inflammation in a lipoprotein LDL HDL
carries other antioxidants to the site of inflammation, rescues the damaged
cholesterol and carries it back to the liver to be recycled (pgs 44-45)
I did not realize how detrimental toxic chemicals are to the health or the
heart. This made me more interested in learning more about detoxification.
I enjoyed the authors candid conversational style of writing. I respect the work of
Dr. Campbell-McBride and plan to study her work on GAPS .
