AHA Pushes Primordial Prevention Powers?
A child believes; “Make me supreme ruler and I will make the world a world a wonderful place; because, I demand it…”
When organizations behave that way, everyone should tell them to grow up.
The American Heart Association which created the margarine over butter Prudent Diet Campaign and other proven foolishness is now ready to pronounce new guidelines and thinks the world should be changed to support their wisdom.
The list below may or may not be the best way to create better cardiovascular health… And the suggestion on cholesterol ignores the research showing it’s not the level of cholesterol but the ratios that are more important and the additional research observations that it’s not the cholesterol but how the body uses it that is most important.
So the American Heart Association came up with the simple seven, seven simple health behaviors or factors. Not smoking, not being overweight, being “very active”, defined as walking at least 22 minutes a day, a few fruits and veggies, below average cholesterol, normal blood pressure and normal blood sugars.
Watch for our next post about previous AHA foolishness that has resulted in so much unnecessary pain, death, and anguish.
Please note we are not saying that every suggestion that they made are invalid; only, that they may direct people away from much more important changes and that the idea of eliminating the source of the what AHA thinks are the problem is like a parent taking away a choice from an infant.
You and I are not infants. We are not owned. They are not perfect and history proves they can be stupid.
