An Interview with Neil Hirschenbein, MD, PhD by Mark Bielsky and Ed Bennett, PPNF Board Members. Dr. Hirshenbein discusses the myth of saturated fat as a prominent factor present in heart disease, and how excess dietary sugar is the real culprit - the consumption of which leads to high blood sugar and overproduction of insulin. These conditions contribute to inflammation, associated with many serious health conditions including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and cancer. You will also discover how important cholesterol is for controlling inflammation, and the essential role this misunderstood substance plays in maintaining health. The doctor also addresses the use of laboratory tests used by conventional doctors to treat heart disease, and what "high cholesterol" really means in interpreting heart disease and its relationship to overall health.
