Which Diet? Who is promoting it?

With all the hype today about the benefits of lowering your cholesterol numbers by taking drugs known as STATINS – which of course produce a multiplicity of side effects….. Here we have an article promoting DIET instead of drugs.
Of course it is terribly important to know which diet is being promoted and exactly who it is that is promoting it, as the low fat or and high carbohydrate one, which is promoted by the ADA comes with its own set of serious problems. The other thought for consideration is… would you trust a compnay promoting their own products as being safe and healthy? Peek Here and Here.
Zoe Harcombe (Author) is well known for her stance on ways in which to lower the obesity epidemic, which itself is being blamed for a multiplicity of illnesses, such as heart disease and diabetes. Just for the record high cholesterol is not a disease, it is a symptom. High Blood Pressure is not a disease, it too is a symptom. A High Sugar reading is not a disease it is merely an indication that things are not correct with your glucose metabolism – and yet doctors will immediately issue you with a prescription to ‘bring those numbers’ back into ‘proper’ control. By the way, for the vast majority of patients prescribes these drugs, they will be expected to take them for the rest of their lives. This is UNNECESSARY in many cases, because making some simple lifestyle choices will reverse these symptoms completely and save patients from a lifetime of servitude to the Pharmaceutical Industry.
