Lower you cholesterol is the mantra we hear from our doctors and the media. Not so fast says the Life Extension Foundation. They cite 14 factors that contribute to cardiovascular disease. Problems in several of these 14 areas are easily corrected with vitamins or other supplements. The Life Extension Foundation also suggests that statin medications are overemphasized and overused. I’m a big fan of the Life Extension Foundation. They think independently, their magazine, Life Extension, does an excellent job of describing their research and analyzing research, and their recommendations are often ten years ahead of mainstream medicine.

 

Our guest is Dr. Steven Joyal, Vice President of Scientific Affairs and Medical Development of the Life Extension Foundation. In the first part of the show, we will focus on what causes heart disease and arteriosclerosis and how cholesterol is just one piece of the puzzle. In the second part of the show, we will focus on practical things you can do to improve your cardiovascular health and blood tests you need to insist on getting.
