Message Subject News Flash: Inflammation Is What Causes Most Of Today's Heart Disease, not necessarily high fat diet
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
Let's not forget what the heart is, a muscle.

It is the most important of all the muscles because it must operate 24/7/365 without skipping a beat.

To keep a muscle in top condition it must operate at or near the top of it's capacity.

Now look at the modern human being.

How much time in a day do you think the average human being spends at rest as opposed to in some form or aerobic activity, even as simple as walking?

Inactivity leads to the decay and atrophy of the heart. All the rest of the shit that goes along with that- from eating shitty food, to taking all kinds of drugs, to carrying around a couple of extra bowling balls worth of fat for an entire adult lifetime all adds to the problem.

It certainly isn't a high animal fat diet.

So true!

It's like an old car that sits in garage for 30 years without running. Exercise is just as important for the body as sleep is.

Here's an interesting nugget of trivia, Cell Damage to the body during Stroke, Heart Attack etc... does not occur from lack of oxygen. The bulk of the damage happens when the cells are re-oxygenated.

I just did a quick search and accidentally found an article that showed this re-oxygenation damage can be prevented with simple antioxidants like vit C. Keep in mind the below study is not open source so I cannot see the amount used. It's an in the dish study invitro not an in the body study invivo so it's basically practically useless although interesting.

You can protect yourself from future damage as well as repair current damage if your body is flush with antioxidants.
