Medical alert: Thyroid dysfunction increases your risk of heart disease

By Landsman: (NaturalNews) Over 100 years ago, a study showed that 'subclinical hypothyroidism' was associated with a 260% increase in the prevalence of heart disease. In fact, over the years, many other studies have made the connection between thyroid disorders and the risk of premature death due to cardiovascular disease.

On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and David Brownstein, M.D., an expert in thyroid health will examine the many factors contributing to heart disease, breast cancer and thyroid dysfunction. You'll learn how to naturally heal the body without toxic medications.



Elevated TSH levels increase the risk of fatty deposits in the arteries

This is NOT 'theoretical'. For many years, conventional medicine has recognized that TSH receptors are in the coronary arteries and that elevated TSH levels - which occur in people with hypothyroidism - can trigger spasms in the coronary arteries. But, low thyroid function is not exclusively a problem for the 'older generation'.

Dr. David Brownstein, our guest on the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, warns pregnant women to be aware of the dangers of low thyroid function. In fact, based on scientific data, women with hypothyroidism gave birth to children that had lower IQ scores plus a higher risk of visual problems, attention deficit disorders, memory problems and sensorimotor skill issues.

Up to 40% of the population may currently have a thyroid disorder and Western medicine has only been focused on treating the symptoms of this disease with dangerous drugs. The next NaturalNews Talk Hour will focus on natural solutions for thyroid disorders, breast cancer, heart disease plus much more.

Did you know that statins actually increase your risk of heart disease?

Most holistically-trained physicians understand that cholesterol-lowering medications - taken for an extended period of time - can actually increase insulin levels in the body. Why should you care about insulin levels? Because elevated insulin leads to unwanted weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure and inflammation - which trigger a host of chronic diseases including heart disease and cancer. Why would anyone want to increase their risk of disease - especially when you consider that an organic, whole foods diet is far more effective (and safer) at reducing the risk of heart disease.

Shocking news to most people, a landmark study published in Open Journal of Endocrine and Metabolic Diseases states that:

"It is beginning to dawn on some clinicians that contemporary treatments are not only failing to impact on our most prevalent diseases, but they may be causing more damage than good. A perfect example of such an issue is the statin saga."

Scientific evidence clearly shows that statins cause cataracts, acute kidney failure, liver dysfunction, diabetes, muscular degeneration, coronary artery and aortic calcification, erectile dysfunction and cancer.
