Heart Disease Cardiovascular Disease. In this episode of Dr. Andy’s Wellness Corner, Dr. Andy delves into one of the nation’s top killers. Of course, that’s heart and cardiovascular disease. In fact, Dr. Andy starts by defining these diseases. He then goes into its prevalence both nationwide and in Washington state. Additionally this also includes projections from the CDC as to where this disease is headed by 2030.
After an overview of some basic anatomy, Dr. Andy defines cardiovascular disease. Understanding the anatomy is necessary to understand the nature of blood vessel problems. This includes risk factors, common causes, and common treatments. And of course, Dr. Andy goes into the common natural approaches to heart and vascular health as well as the enzyme nutrition approach.
Perhaps the most important thing Dr. Andy covers in this airing is the cholesterol myth. Dr. Andy sites several large research projects that show there is no relationship between high cholesterol and heart disease. In fact low cholesterol can cause some serious health hazards including cancer and a shorter life span according to some brand new research. Of course Dr. Andy talks about the real problem, and why some health experts blame cholesterol. Then Dr. Andy exposes the truth about how experts measure cholesterol, why it’s inaccurate, and how scientists make false assumptions to measure it.
Lastly, Dr. Andy explains how certain forms of heart disease can lead to heart failure. Once that occurs he reveals the common necessary medical approach. If you or a loved one suffers from heart disease, this is a must listen episode!

Low Cholesterol Shortens Life. Over the past many years, there have been a number of studies proving the cholesterol myth is just that. It is just a myth. In fact these studies show there is no link between cholesterol and heart disease. Among these studies are the Framingham Study as well as the Honolulu Study. And, as I’ve previously stated, the Aboriginals have a high instance of heart disease and very low cholesterol levels while Switzerland has a low incidence of heart disease and relatively high cholesterol levels. However, if you actually dive into the data behind the Honolulu study, you’ll find some startling figures. Surprisingly, these statistics indicate that lower cholesterol may actually shorten your life span.
What’s most unfortunate is that the study concludes that lowering cholesterol does not affect your risk of heart disease. While that is a great finding, one needs to look at the underlying data in the study to get to the real truth. Surprisingly, if you look at that actual data, you find the conclusion is being somewhat politically correct. Because the data actually shows a HIGHER MORTALITY RATE for subjects who had lower cholesterol levels. As a matter of fact this includes those with lower LDL levels, which is the “BAD” cholesterol. In fact several studies from medscape.com show that people who have lower LDL (“Bad Cholesterol”) levels had an increased risk of cancer.
