Remote Tribe in Bolivia Found to Have the Healthiest Arteries in the World
Their near perfect cardiovascular health reinforces why the mainstream focus on medicating the symptoms isn’t working and what people need to do instead
There’s an isolated tribe deep in the Bolivian jungle called the Tsimane people. In their society, heart attacks and strokes are almost unknown.
A study, presented at the American College of Cardiology conference, showed that an 80-year-old Tsimané man has the vascular age of an American in his mid-50s.
The arteries of the villagers were checked with CT scans. They were found to be virtually clean of toxic artery plaque, with 9 out of 10 of the 705 strong tribe having no risk of heart disease. And that wasn’t even the most surprising result!
What they found when they checked the elderly members of the tribe was ASTONISHING.
Two thirds of the tribe’s elders (aged over 75) also had almost no risk of a heart attack or stroke. Blood pressure, body fat and blood glucose were also low.
“This study suggests that coronary atherosclerosis [hardening of the arteries] could be avoided if people adopted some elements of the Tsimané lifestyle, such as keeping their LDL cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar very low, not smoking and being physically active,” said senior cardiology author Dr Gregory S Thomas from Long Beach Memorial Medical Centre in the US.
These findings go a long way to debunking the theory that higher cholesterol is something we have to accept as we get older. They also put under the spotlight the obsession with medicating the symptoms instead of addressing the root cause…
Half of Heart Attack Victims DON’T Have High Cholesterol
“It’s not too far-fetched to suggest that while statins may ‘save lives’ in the relative short-term by reducing the risk of, say, heart attacks, they may possibly cause some people to perish in the long term” – Dr John Briffa, a practicing doctor, author and international speaker
It’s a well known scientific fact that over half of people who suffer heart attacks DON’T have high cholesterol. This is because high cholesterol is only ONE of the causation factors. Yet when you go to your doctor for a checkup on your heart disease risk, they’ll likely just prescribe you cholesterol lowering drugs and send you on your way.
Cholesterol lowering drugs are now the most prescribed on the planet. Today 1 in 3 Amercians aged over 40 takes one daily. Yet rates of heart attacks and strokes are still rocketing.
