Coronary Heart Disease (CHD)
CHD is caused by a thickening of the inside walls of the coronary arteries. This thickening, called atherosclerosis, narrows the space through which blood can flow, decreasing and sometimes completely cutting off the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the heart. It is usually caused by a combination of non-holistic practices such as poor nutrition, environmental pollution, destructive eating habits and deterioration of the body. Many other factors can cause this disease reaction such as high and low blood pressure, acid ash, fat deposits, thermal glandular fatigue and loss of vein and artery flexibility.
The current fad, which suggests high cholesterol levels resulting in arteriosclerosis - caused heart attacks, was started in 1913. It is founded upon giving high levels of cholesterol to rabbits (livers too small to break down fats). Further, the researchers never realized that the research was on disease damage and never gave disease damage any significance.
Atherosclerosis usually OCCURS WHEN A PERSON HAS HIGH LEVELS OF CHOLESTEROL, A FAT-LIKE SUBSTANCE IN THE BLOOD. Cholesterol and fat circulating in the blood, build up on the walls of the arteries. This buildup narrows the arteries and can slow or block the flow of blood. When the level of cholesterol in the blood is high, there is a greater chance that it will be deposited onto the artery walls. This process begins in most people during childhood and the teenage years, and worsens, as they get older.
In addition to high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, smoking also contributes to CHD. On the average, each of these doubles your chance of developing heart disease. Therefore, a person who has all three risk factors is eight times more likely to develop heart disease than someone who has none. Obesity and physical inactivity are other factors that can lead to CHD. Being overweight increases the likelihood of developing high blood cholesterol and high blood pressure while physical inactivity increases the risk of heart attack. Regular exercise, good nutrition and smoking cessation are key to controlling the risk factors for CHD.
Overweight / Obesity
About 65 percent of American adults are overweight or obese. Being overweight or obese increases the risk not only for heart disease, but also for other conditions, including stroke, gallbladder disease, arthritis, breast, colon and other cancers. Being overweight and obesity are determined by two key measures - body mass index or BMI - and waist circumference. BMI relates height to weight.
