Heart Attacks and Strokes Caused By Acid Not Cholesterol!

by Dr. Robert O. Young

Longtime readers of my health and wellness newsletters know I've been warning that 100 percent of ALL people who have a heart attacks or strokes do not have elevated cholesterol levels - they have elevated acid levels!

A study published this past week not only confirms my theory, but indicates that almost 75 percent of people hospitalized with a heart attack or stroke have had cholesterol levels that were within current normal cholesterol guidelines.

The alleged link between high cholesterol levels and heart attack and stroke risk has been the main support for the dietary cholesterol theory. But I have known for over a decade that 50 percent of people who have a heart attack do not have elevated cholesterol levels, and the new study adds even more proof to my theory.

So what is the real cause? Can you spell ACID!

The big pharmaceutical companies all advocate the use of statin drugs such as Lipitor, Zocor, and Crestor, to lower cholesterol. However, results from the study most commonly cited by statin proponents shows that people with the highest LDL cholesterol levels (the so-called "bad" cholesterol that is saving your life) wound up with no better results from taking statins than those with lower blood cholesterol levels. This indicated that the reduction of LDL cholesterol by the statin drug did not predict a person's risk of coronary heart disease.

There is compelling and overwhelming evidence to suggest that dietary and metabolic acid that causes irritation, inflammation, ulceration and degeneration is seen in every case of heart attack and stroke and is the fundamental cause of high cholesterol, atherosclerosis, heart attack and stroke.

Cell-based experiments and studies on both humans and animals all confirm this -- and the evidence is growing. For in-depth information, read my newsletter called "Symptoms Confused As Disease," at:


One recent study stated it this way: Dietary and metabolic acid that causes inflammation plays a central role at every stage of atherosclerosis, from beginning to end. And the greater the acid the greater the inflammation, the more rapidly atherosclerosis advances. Fortunately, there are natural substances, including mineral salts and other natural substances such as chlorophyll that reduces dietary and metabolic acid that causes inflammation or Stage 4 acidosis that causes heart disease and stroke. For a more in-depth look at the causes of acid based inflammation, its relationship to atherosclerosis, and natural substances for a healthy heart, go to:


Unfortunately, all heart attack and strokes are caused by an acidic lifestyle and diet, such as in the tragic case of journalist Tim Russert. He had very little warning and he thought he was following all the steps necessary to avoid sudden cardiac death (SCD) or I eat too much acidic shi@ Dis-ease (ASD). Find out what makes you vulnerable to SCD or ASD, including acidic health conditions such as diabetes, MS, and Cancer and what you can do to keep from becoming a statistic, by reading my special newsletter "The Most Important Article I Have Ever Written."
