If you have a high cholesterol level in your blood and few other unhealthy lifestyle, your doctors may put you on a risk of heart attack based on above data unless corrective measures are taken- few pills and lifestyle change. That is understandable according to today’s medical science.
However, million dollar question is or after killing more than 2 million, why people with no symptom of High Cholesterol, thin, normal, even athletes without any sign or symptom suddenly collapse and die.
Glaring example is Bill Clinton, ex-US president. He is the most health conscious president. His life style is perfect- he jogs and diet is controlled. Despite all the right things he did, he underwent quadruple-bypass surgery in 2004 and he received two stents in a coronary artery- a mesh that will hold up the artery open.
The answer was there since 1981 but medical Doctors who are CEOs (direct beneficiary of economic gain) do not wish to share “this” information to public.
There was an incident aboard NASA spaceship when one of the astronauts had nearly collapsed. NASA did not want to take any such risk in its future mission and made it a mandatory test for all its space crew to undergo a test called Coronary Calcium Scan.
Coronary Calcium Scan test is a simple X-ray detail image of the heart, more like a sliced heart, which can detect Calcium deposits in coronary arteries. Calcium deposits in arteries show up as a white specks of calcium which indicates that your heart is sick and diseased. This is not a heart with a “risk” of heart attack but is sick and must be looked at from time to time or else your heart may fail anytime within next 10 years. Millions of healthy people who are dead missed this simple yet crucial test that could have saved them.
Many doctors who are suppose to save life, hung on to their money and power(1981-2013), made fatal judgements and cut short life of millions of aspiring young human beings.
Today, 2015, CAC (Coronary Artery Calcification) scan test is supported by insurance companies in US and accept it as a mammogram for the heart.
Heart Attack is still the number one killer in North America. 610,000 people die each year according to CDC.gov.
A documentary film The Widowmaker is out there, also on NETFLIX, which explains “conspiracy of silence” of medical guardians who are suppose to save life.
Tibetans, as I know, are on the wrong lifestyle. We eat red meat and we also eat animal fats and organs (tongue, lung, intestine, stomach ) which is bad for us. We need to change our lifestyle. Green vegetables have many vitamins that our body needs to keep itself healthy.
Within the past 30 days, I am aware of 4 deaths and all are due to cancer. Except one rest are young below 50s.
Something is wrong with our lifestyle, to say the least.
