Heart attacks, once thought of as something mostly only suffered by older men, are increasingly occurring in younger Americans, especially women, according to new research.
Cardiovascular disease is the world’s number one killer. Estimated by the World Health Organization to be costing the lives of 17.9 million people every year, four out of five of these deaths are due to atherosclerotic deposits in the arteries leading to heart attacks and strokes.
Conventional medicine sees elevated blood levels of cholesterol as the principal risk factor for the development of atherosclerotic deposits. As a result, over the past three decades, the pharmaceutical industry has been able to build up a multibillion-dollar global business selling statin drugs to artificially lower cholesterol. But as Dr. Rath’s Cellular Medicine research has shown, high cholesterol is not the cause of cardiovascular disease, it is simply the consequence of it. The real culprit behind cardiovascular disease is a lack of vitamin C and other collagen-supporting micronutrients.
