Why Big Pharma Killed President Eisenhower
These so-called "therapies" not only put your life at risk...
They could also deplete or even wipe out your retirement savings – even if you have health insurance or Medicare. (According to CNBC, medical bills are America's #1 cause of bankruptcy, with 1.7 million Americans going bankrupt every year. And procedures like open heart surgery are some of the most expensive out there.)
And the worst part is, it's all for nothing.
Did you know, for instance, that 85 percent of heart bypass surgeries are unnecessary?
Yet specialists love them because they can cost $200,000 (or more). Not a bad payday.
And the statin drug guidelines are so broad, almost 95 percent of new users are being prescribed drugs they don't need.
But you shouldn't waste another cent of your hard-earned money on deadly surgeries or drugs.
As you're about to see, there are nine life-saving alternatives that are 100 percent safe, effective, and inexpensive.
Today, I'll shed light on each of these... the FDA's efforts to censor them... and the independent studies backing their healing power. All the facts you need to build a disease-proof heart.
But before I do, let me tell you the REAL background story behind Big Pharma's "mother of all lies"...
And how it ultimately took President Eisenhower's life.
It's a story that went unreported until recently.
When I dug deep into the history, I found the scheming and intrigue behind this myth was astonishing.
It implicates prestigious researchers, non-profit associations, and their big donors.
Which is why this story remains censored to this day.
In fact, Eisenhower even warned of this secret plot.
And while everybody knows he warned of a military-industrial complex during his farewell address...
Virtually nobody knows about his other warning – a warning just as ominous for the American public, if not more so.
Eisenhower's CENSORED Warning
Near the end of his farewell address to America, Ike warned of the "scientific technological elite."
These political and scientific insiders were:
They were the new foot soldiers of the "medical-industrial complex."
A small clique of career-obsessed bureaucrats only interested only in profits.
Their research serves as a marketing tool for highly lucrative drugs.
But it does nothing to improve public health.
Ike saw this development as the end of scientific discovery and curiosity.
You see, during World War II, while then-General Eisenhower was fighting for American freedoms...
A small group of drug companies was working against our freedoms.
They pulled their strings in government.
They consolidated and grabbed market share.
By the Eisenhower era, the drug industry was dominated by a handful of conglomerates.
A cartel we know today as "Big Pharma."
And they were already leveraging control of scientific research for massive profits.
Eisenhower undoubtedly saw this trend. As you're about to see, he even experienced the results personally.
So he knew this would shape America's health in the decades ahead.
But this part of Ike's address is all but ignored, censored, and "off-the-record."
And that's unfortunate, because it has mushroomed exponentially since that address. Scientists who support "facts" for Big Pharma's profit – and their own careers – are putting everyday Americans in imminent danger.
That's why it's imperative you heed Ike's warning if you're concerned about your own health, and that of your family.
The very first victory of this new "scientific technological elite" took place on September 24, 1955 – within 24 hours of Ike's famous heart attack. It was...
The Day Everything Changed...
Even though 950,000 people still die every year as a direct result...
And although these deaths are easily preventable...
I doubt one in 10,000 Americans know about September 24, 1955.
The events on this dark day triggered a six-decade propaganda campaign – one that's misled doctors and scientists to...
After Eisenhower's heart attack, Big Pharma kicked off their campaign of deception.
Their public relations "experts" immediately appeared on TV and told America a frightening story.
They claimed there was a devastating new "epidemic" of heart disease.
And they blamed excess fat and cholesterol in Americans' diets.
To confront this "crisis," they declared a new war.
A war on fat.
They labeled ALL fat as evil. Especially saturated fats.
They demonized entire categories of so-called "fatty foods."
In turn, the "experts" proposed radical changes to the American way of life. They recommended that Americans stop smoking. Engage in 30 minutes of cardio each day. And adopt the "Prudent Diet," a low-cholesterol diet consisting of corn oil, margarine, chicken, and cold cereal.
What was their real agenda? And who benefited?
According to the Harvard School of Public Health...
But in order to make their new agenda stick, they needed somebody famous as a model for everyday Americans.
And who could fit that bill better than Eisenhower – war hero and beloved president?
As you're about to see, they not only made Ike the guinea pig for their hypothesis...
They even used the press coverage of Eisenhower's recovery as free advertising.
How "The Cholesterol Hoax"
New York Times, April 17, 1956
They instructed the public on the dangers of coronary disease.
For the first time the word "cholesterol" entered the public vocabulary.
It became a dangerous evil, a monster, a villain.
They portrayed cholesterol as the "new polio."
Millions of Americans – frightened by the new "epidemic" – quickly embraced any solutions the so-called "experts" handed out.
When the dust settled, Americans had learned to watch the fat and cholesterol in their diets.
New York Times, November 6, 1956
But there was ONE big problem with all of this...
None of it was true.
Not a single word of it.
As the Wall Street Journal recently reported...
"There has never been solid evidence for the idea that [saturated] fats cause heart disease."
In fact, later research would confirm these fats have plenty of proven health benefits, including preventing and reversing heart disease!
But once "facts" like these are born, they never seem to die. No matter the research or studies that disprove them. Not when so much money is at stake.
You see, this myth not only gave birth to poor dietary guidelines...
It also spawned the most lucrative class of drugs ever invented.
That includes the most lucrative (and deadliest) drug known to mankind.
Sales to date from this drug alone have totaled a whopping $140 billion!
And this #1 cash cow hinges on this one single myth.
That's why it will NOT go away so easily.
Your own doctor likely still believes it.
But I think you'll be surprised at just how little research there is to back it.
In a minute, you'll hear all the details on how Ike was its first victim.
But first, let me expose how they used Eisenhower's own doctor to administer their poison.
Although top scientists and researchers were rallying behind the new myth...
Ike's Doctor Debunks the Hoax
There was ONE detractor:
Dr. Paul Dudley White, Harvard cardiologist and Eisenhower's personal physician.
White knew this cholesterol mythology was 100 percent false.
In fact, he publicly debunked it on a live broadcast in a panel debate with his peers.
But here's the incredible thing...
Even with NO new research, studies, or trials to support the cholesterol hypothesis...
Dr. White reversed his position, and jumped on the bandwagon for the sake of his own career.
Is it a coincidence Eisenhower's own doctor was the perfect example of the "scientific-technological elite"?
I'll leave that for you to decide.
You see, this diet had POWERFUL backers from Big Pharma and Big Agriculture.
Like Procter & Gamble, with billions of dollars on the table selling vegetable oils in place of fat-heavy cooking.
P&G's funding even helped transform the American Heart Association into a powerhouse organization.
In fact, the AHA's most avid proponent of the "lipid theory," Fred Mattson, was a scientist (and shill) for Procter & Gamble.
Mattson even helped P&G develop Olestra, a cholesterol-free replacement for fat in foods and cooking oils.
And in 1958, two years after Eisenhower's heart attack, Kraft introduced polyunsaturated margarine to the market. A product they advertised as a "heart healthy" alternative to butter.
With this kind of money at stake, the increasingly powerful drug and food conglomerates weren't taking any chances.
That's why they hired leading medical experts to tout the new party line.
Today, drug companies STILL recruit "key opinion leaders" as hired guns for their marketing campaigns.
These top physicians endorse Big Pharma's drugs. In return, they achieve celebrity status and popularity. And they enforce Big Pharma's ideas in the medical community.
That includes ostracizing and blacklisting doctors who buck the status quo.
These mouthpieces for Big Pharma embody the very "scientific technological elite" that Eisenhower warned of.
Ike Killed by Rat Poison?
The year before Eisenhower's heart attack, Bristol-Myers' new blood-thinner Coumadin received FDA approval. Before then, it was used as rat poison.
The National Poison Center still labels warfarin – the generic name for Coumadin – a dangerous rodenticide.
And guess who was the first one selected to test-drive the drug?
That's right – Dr. Paul Dudley White prescribed this rat poison to Eisenhower during the president's recovery. This move was profitable for Big Pharma, but disastrous for Ike's health.
When the media reported on Eisenhower's use of Coumadin, it instantly became the popular go-to drug for blood clot prevention.
And now it's one of the top 10 most prescribed drugs in the world. One that hands Big Pharma $15.3 billion per year. And it's growing by the day.
But did anyone hear about Eisenhower's awful symptoms and side effects?
While he was still on the drug, Ike developed chronic inflammation of his intestines. His medical condition was critical, even requiring bowel surgery, so his doctors temporarily suspended his Coumadin therapy.
After he recovered, Ike again started to take Coumadin, which led to a brain hemorrhage in 1957.
Yet the media, and his doctors, failed to make the connection between Ike's diminishing health and this dangerous blood thinner.
Dr. White emerged as one of these leaders in the 1950s.
That's why he would not only go along with the new dogma...
Supporting ideas he knew were dead wrong...
And aiding in the corruption of medical knowledge...
But would even turn around and prescribe this very same diet to Ike.
Thanks to this single move, the link between cholesterol and heart disease became "gospel."
Yet not a shred of research supported it.
No studies, no trials, nothing.
Americans swallowed the propaganda like an overpriced pill.
Everyone now "knew" the "evils" of fat and cholesterol in their diets.
Yet amazingly, nobody heard about...
Ironically, Eisenhower's own condition – used by Big Pharma to push their agenda – 100 percent contradicted the "cholesterol myth."
At the time of his heart attack, Eisenhower's cholesterol was ONLY 165 mg/dL.
Ike also exercised every day and kept a perfect weight of 172.
In other words, he seemed to be in perfect condition.
And Ike's case was hardly unusual.
According to a published analysis of the Framingham Heart Study...
75 percent of patients admitted to the hospital for heart attacks have normal cholesterol levels.
In short, cholesterol is a terrible predictor of heart disease.
That should have been the lesson. The end of the story.
But Americans didn't hear about this from the media.
All they heard was Eisenhower's new cholesterol-free diet.
New York Times, September 21, 1955
Ike replaced butter with hydrogenated soybean oils and margarine full of dangerous trans fat.
He no longer ate eggs, bacon, and steak for breakfast.
And over time, at the insistence of Dr. White, his diet regimen grew stricter.
In fact, some days he would eat nothing but grapefruit and melba toast.
The press carefully reported every detail.
And as a result, Americans jumped on board the new "heart healthy" diet fad.
But this diet came with dire consequences for Ike's health, mind, and body.
The same suffering millions of Americans would experience over the next 59 years.
And STILL experience today.
The results are clear....
According to the Harvard School of Public Health, back in the 1960s when Americans consumed more fat, the rate of obesity was 13 percent and only one percent suffered from type 2 diabetes.
Today, although we consume MUCH less fat in our diets, the rate of obesity has soared as high as 45 percent and 8 percent now suffer from type 2 diabetes.
This is from Harvard University – could you think of a more reliable source?
The Harvard study concludes...
"The low-fat diet hasn't helped us control weight or become healthier."
President Eisenhower's own experience is a case in point.
After Ike began following this "heart-healthy" diet, his cholesterol levels soared.
They jumped from 165... to 195... to 225... to 259 mg/dL.
His weight skyrocketed too.
The president grew increasingly frustrated, even obsessed with his cholesterol.
At one point he even checked his levels 10 times each year.
The more his cholesterol soared, the more religiously Ike stuck to the diet.
A fact that dumbfounded his team of top physicians and enraged the president.
It got so bad the president's doctors even started lying to him about his real levels.
Yet this didn't stop the "experts" from continuing to push this mythology.
Six days before Ike's cholesterol level reached 259, Ancel Keys – a protégé of Eisenhower's doctor – published his famous "Seven Countries Study."
In fact, Dr. Paul Dudley White helped Keys secure government funding for the study.
The study famously linked heart disease and cholesterol levels.
It championed the same cholesterol-free diet that Eisenhower personally knew was false.
And it established the "lipid hypothesis" as accepted "fact."
But here's what no one knew at the time: Ancel Keys "cherry picked" the evidence so he could associate heart disease with fat and cholesterol intake.
Keys studied 22 countries, but only focused on the six countries which supported his thesis.
The 16 other countries actually disproved his entire idea... but he left them out.
There's a word for this kind of research – propaganda.
Nevertheless, the medical world rallied around his theory.
Keys ended up on the cover of Time Magazine.
Two weeks later, the American Heart Association officially adopted the cholesterol theory of heart disease.
The Deadly Fatty Acid
Pretty soon, it became the accepted wisdom throughout the medical field.
Lowering LDL ("bad") cholesterol was now the primary focus of preventive medicine.
The ironic part is, Eisenhower was experiencing firsthand just how wrong this theory was... and paying for it with his health and life.
Throughout the 1960s, Eisenhower suffered seven heart attacks and 14 myocardial infarctions... even as he stuck religiously to the "heart-healthy diet."
In 1969, the famous war hero and beloved president died from his last heart attack.
In circles today, it's known as the "Eisenhower Paradox."
And while this is only a single anecdotal piece of evidence...
The medical establishment is still force-feeding us the same myth that ultimately killed Eisenhower.
Remember: the conventional wisdom is that LDL cholesterol causes arterial plaque buildup, ultimately obstructing our blood flow and leading to heart disease.
You've heard it. I heard it repeated from elementary to medical school. And like my colleagues, I believed it without question.
That is, until I read thousands of studies proving otherwise.
Yes, LDL cholesterol can be found in the plaque that builds up along damaged arteries.
But this point misses a simple fact – one even a high school physiology course could tell you...
The damage to your arteries happens before NOT after the plaque builds up. Plaque is your body's response to heart disease, not the cause of it.
LDL cholesterol catches blame because it's found at the scene of the crime.
But that's a lot like blaming a scab for the injury that caused it to form... or like blaming a band-aid for the injury its covering.
The truth is that the REAL culprit for heart disease has always been inflammation.
And the worst part is... the inflammation in our blood vessels is caused in part by the low-fat diet recommended for years by modern medicine.
That's why Eisenhower's heart disease grew worse, even on his "heart-healthy" diet... which replaced so-called "artery-clogging" butter with toxic vegetable oils.
And that's why 950,000 Americans continue to die each year from heart disease, even as they consume record quantities of low-fat food, vegetable oils, and cholesterol-lowering drugs.
In fact, the truth about inflammation is old news. But the medical establishment still ignores it. Even when the mainstream media occasionally gets it right.
For instance, a 2004 Time Magazine cover story identified inflammation as the "secret killer." Take a look at the cover...
The Time article starts with a description of the conventional explanation of heart disease.
"Not long ago, most doctors thought of heart attacks as primarily a plumbing problem. Over the years, fatty deposits would slowly build up on the insides of major coronary arteries until they grew so big that they cut off the supply of blood to a vital part of the heart. A complex molecule called LDL, the so-called bad cholesterol, provided the raw material for these deposits. Clearly anyone with high LDL levels was at greater risk of developing heart disease."
Then the writer quickly shuts it down....
"There's just one problem with that explanation: sometimes it's dead wrong. Indeed, half of all heart attacks occur in people with normal cholesterol levels."
I wasn't shocked to hear this.
But I was stunned that this blunt article actually reached the mainstream.
Of course, this was more than 10 years ago. And in spite of the attention generated by this article, the market for cholesterol-lowering drugs to counteract heart disease has skyrocketed five-fold since then.
In short, there's nothing stopping Big Pharma's relentless march for profits... no amount of evidence... no matter how airtight... even from a prestigious source like Time Magazine.
Their profit margins trump proof. And it certainly trumps your health and your life.
But I have good news.
You don't have to fall victim to their mass guinea pig experiment.
I've identified three urgent indicators of heart disease you can check with a simple blood test.
These tests indicate (with startling accuracy) that you could be at imminent risk of a heart attack or stroke.
In fact, one of these indicators can predict when that risk may jump by as much as 500 percent.
A review of 26 articles, published in the Journal of Biotechnology Information, proved even a very tiny increase in levels – 5 mcg – confirms a 20 percent increase in heart disease risk ... independent of ANY other factors for heart disease.
And I can speak from personal experience as a physician.
Take the incredible case of one of my patients, Edward N., 48 years old, who walked into my Center for Health and Wellness about ten years ago.
Ed had suffered two strokes, but what baffled medical experts was he showed none of the traditional risk factors.
He worked as a roofer his whole life, so he was physically active. He was muscular, cut and, ripped. In fact, he looked like a body builder. He didn't smoke and drink. At 155 pounds, he was not overweight. And his cholesterol levels were normal at 150 mg/dL.
Not your typical stroke victim, right?
So when he first came to my practice, doctors told him he had a 80 percent likelihood of a third stroke.
I tested Ed for one of these indicators and his levels showed 26 – the highest I've ever seen.
In one study of people who had had a stroke but had no other risk factors, 90 percent had elevated levels of this indicator.
Yet, incredibly, no one ever checked Ed's levels.
And Ed wasn't alone. Only a few of my patients ever had this indicator previously checked by their personal physicians.
Why is this the case?
The story of one of my patients, a 66-year-old woman, gives a clue.
Like Ed, she suffered from strokes. But all of her factors were normal. So I planned to check her blood for this stroke and heart disease indicator.
When she told her neurologist of my plan, he asked, "Why are they checking for that? Even if it is elevated, there is no drug to lower it."
In the neurologist's view, no drug equals no solution.
The simple truth is, no drug is necessary.
It's easy to lower these levels quite effectively and reliably with safe and inexpensive supplements available at your local grocery, or health food store.
Which is why doctors and specialists, beholden to Big Pharma, don't conduct these simple tests. Many of have never even heard of them.
With Ed's case, I was able to lower his levels using a simple vitamin therapy. One you could apply at home.
And he never experienced a stroke again.
Even when his other doctors encouraged him to "get his affairs in order," because of what they claimed was an 80 percent risk of another stroke.
Today, Ed is in his 60s and enjoying an active, productive life.
And Ed's experience is hardly unusual.
I have a file drawer full of similar cases, with similar results.
I detail this, along with two other urgent heart disease indicators, inside my dossier:
Each solution and insight you'll find inside may prove vital to your heart health, and that of someone you love.
And here's the thing.
To take advantage of these heart therapies...
|You don't need to spend a lot of time or money.|
|You don't need doctor visits, prescriptions or physical exams.|
|And you don't even need health insurance.|
But you do need one thing.
The courage to stand up to people who tell you that drugs and surgery are your only options.
If you're willing to make that life-changing move...
If you're motived to start taking back control of your health and well-being...
And if you are willing to buck conventional wisdom for the sake of your family...
Then my groundbreaking research is definitely for you.
And I urge you to act today.
I'll show you how and where you can access your copy of The Ageless Heart Manual: Advanced Strategies to Reverse Heart Disease and Restore Your Heart's Pumping Power
As a loyal reader you are among the first to hear about this report and its groundbreaking therapies and revelations.
In just a moment, I will share some of the details on these life-saving cures.
However, before I do, let me tell you the exciting news...
After nearly 60 years, the Cholesterol Myth is finally blowing up.
They can no longer keep the lid on this story.
And the truth is going mainstream.
In 2014, Time Magazine reversed course after six decades.
Their June cover story declared the end of the war on fat.
They even exposed Ancel Keys for his junk science.
It was now once again okay to eat butter.
Time acted like this was based on "new science."
But don't buy it.
For decades top scientists have confirmed the health benefits of saturated fat and cholesterol.
But still, with few exceptions, the mainstream media did not listen and continued to push a dietary philosophy that still exists to this day – one that continues to do great harm to people's health.
Simply because the "Cholesterol Myth" is the backbone of Big Pharma and their statin drug profit machine.
And they're not letting up.
Not with billions of dollars pouring into their corporate bank accounts.
Welcome to the new "drug war."
A quick background: the drug industry started work on statins in the 1950s, around the same time the Cholesterol Myth became Gospel.
But statins didn't reach the market until 1986, when Merck received FDA approval for the drug lovastatin.
Since then, statins have exploded into a $100 billion industry with no end in sight.
One out of every four Americans over age 45 now takes these cholesterol-lowering drugs, with disastrous results for their health and well-being.
That's why the media, dependent on Big Pharma for $27 billion of advertising, has blacked out independent research which proves that these drugs take a heavy toll on human health.
In fact, over 900 independent studies confirm that statin use is strongly associated with...
|Type 2 diabetes|
|Memory loss and disorientation|
|Muscle disease (Over 100 studies prove the myotoxic, or muscle-harming effects, of statins)|
|And EVEN breast cancer|
All told, this rapidly growing body of clinical research has associated statin drug use with over 300 diseases and adverse health effects.
Most of them serious, even deadly problems.
I've seen firsthand the damage these drugs can do.
Take Roy G., a friend of mine from college who suffered a heart attack. He came to me seeking help after his cardiologist put him on prescription drugs to help him "recover" from his heart attack.
Sitting in my consultation room, Roy looked at me with tears in his eyes.
"If this is what it's like to survive a heart attack, I'd rather die."
Roy was under 50 and had no prior knowledge that he suffered from heart disease.
His cardiologist's only advice for him was to take prescription blood pressure and cholesterol drugs. But these drugs only interfered with the rehabilitation and the reconditioning of Roy's heart.
He experienced common symptoms like...
|Chronic pain in his back, legs, and muscles|
He had no energy. And couldn't exercise, which is vital after a heart attack.
If you're on statins, or beta-blockers like Altace and Lopressor, it's likely you've felt the same symptoms.
And so do millions of other Americans.
But before I continue Roy's story, let me address the obvious question...
Now, you might be thinking that, for all of these symptoms and side effects, at least statins prevent heart attacks, right?
In one of medicine's strangest ironies, statins can ultimately end up CAUSING heart disease.
In December 2009, a study on statin drugs published in the Journal of Clinical Cardiology sent shockwaves throughout the medical community with proof that statin therapy weakens the heart muscle.
But here's why this should have surprised no one.
Hundreds of clinical studies have proven that statin drugs...
|Raise blood pressure|
|Lower levels of lifesaving HDL (‘good') cholesterol|
|And increase an important measure of blood clotting, linked to heart attacks.|
Of course, all of these things in
