Why? Because it messes with our blood flow. And if your blood is sticky and your arteries are clogged, you are a heart attack waiting to happen. Very sad state in the body.
The bitter truth is that, as Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn points out, “Between 14 and 17 percent of olive oil is saturated, artery-clogging fat—every bit as aggressive in promoting heart disease as the saturated fat in roast beef.”
Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn has been studying the effects of high fat diets on heart health for 30+ years. As a heart surgeon who performed thousands of operations, he has stated that he never pulls broccoli and tofu out of clogged veins! He decided to look at how to prevent heart attacks rather than operating after the damage was done and began researching the benefits of a whole food plant-based diet. He has brought thousands of people back from the brink of death with his work. So yes, I’m a BIG believer when he says, “No Oil!”
Remember, meat, dairy, eggs and cheese are all saturated fats FIRST. We’ve been successfully brainwashed to believe that these animal products are good sources of protein. They are not. Follow the money. Noone is lobbying for broccoli at the top of the political chain.
