One Cardiologist’s Mission to Reduce Statin Use for Cholesterol
“Given that it takes only a month of dietary change to determine whether you’re a food responder, doesn’t it make sense to give people the chance to at least try a validated food intervention before assigning them to a lifetime of pills? Especially since food doesn’t have any side effects, just side benefits such as lower blood pressure, better blood sugar control, weight loss and feeling better….Food is the comprehensive solution to a complex problem. And it just might put me — and pharmaceutical companies — out of business.”

“Although the term ‘fitness snacking’ may make your stomach rumble, it doesn’t exactly mean what you may think. In fact, the term has nothing to do with food and everything to do with working out….fitness snacking is especially good for people who have sedentary jobs and work long hours. By incorporating short bursts of physical activity throughout the day, it will no doubt improve one’s overall health and can even decrease the chance of disease.”
