The medical establishment (also known as Big Pharma) just loves to keep clinical trials on the straight and narrow, no doubt in an effort to streamline results into “breakthroughs.”
Which translates to more pills on your tongue and more cash in their pockets.
The problem is, many, if not most, clinical studies use a disproportionate amount of white men as their subjects.
Which is such a crying shame. Because it’s from these studies we get our “evidence-based” medical recommendations.
And once these recommendations are established, they become the “standard of care” your doctor relies on when treating his or her patients.
But here lies the problem. Gender and race play significant roles in disease progression — and there’s not a one-size fits-all in how we should be advising patients.
In fact, these narrow guidelines are the main reason why the “conventional” medical community has such a hard time figuring out how supplements work. You can’t always isolate a single nutrient when studying how it affects one group of people and expect it to be a super star across the board. The human body is way more intricate than that.
So taking all of this into account, today I would like to discuss a new study that shows how certain populations other than white men fare when it comes to heart disease.
And I’m sure after reading my letters for a while, you know by now that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of Americans.
It’s sad but true that every year about 735,000 Americans will have a heart attack. And 15% of them will die.
But the effect a heart attack has on women and African Americans is quite different than white males. Especially when it comes to how long they live after suffering from a heart attack.
It’s pretty much common knowledge that women typically outlive men, in fact, in the U.S. the average life expectancy for women is about 79, and about 72 for men.
So you would think that because women generally live longer than men, they would also outlive men after having a heart attack.
But that isn’t the case, at least from the results of this study. And it was quite a large study at that.
Researchers from the Yale School of Medicine analyzed data from more than 140,000 patients, with an average age of 76, who were hospitalized for a heart attack when they were 70 years old. Nearly half were women, and less than 10% were black.
After suffering a heart attack, the researchers found:
- Men’s lives were shortened by 3.5 years
- Women lost 5.5 years
- Whites lost an average of 4.5 years
- Blacks lost about 5.5 years
It’s unclear exactly why all of these disparities exist. But regardless, there’s something everyone can do that will significantly reduce the risk of heart disease.
I’m talking about reining in out-of-control blood sugar and reversing metabolic syndrome.
In case you need a refresher, metabolic syndrome is a condition characterized by abdominal obesity, elevated triglycerides, high blood pressure, high fasting blood glucose, and low HDL cholesterol. Symptoms that put you at risk for a number of serious health issues — including heart disease.
Of course, I have been telling you about ways to combat this deadly syndrome for years now. But for the first time, I’ve assembled it into one user-friendly, step-by-step protocol.
In fact, my Metabolic Repair Protocol outlines the same steps and advice I give my patients…without requiring you to make an appointment — or a trip — to my office here in Manhattan. In fact, you can follow my Metabolic Repair Protocol from the comfort of your own home. And the steps I’ve included can help you reverse metabolic syndrome — and all of its potentially deadly consequences.
I encourage you to check it out and get started as soon as possible. Heart disease, like diabetes, doesn’t happen overnight. Yes, a heart attack may be sudden, but arteries don’t get clogged instantly. Your body has been working up to that for years.
I also urge you to check out my report The World’s Easiest Heart Disease Cure for even more tips on how to prevent heart disease safely and naturally — without Big Pharma’s disastrous “miracle” drugs.
The only way to undo the damage and prevent disease is to be proactive with your health. Do something before it’s too late — and it’s never too late to start.
