Conversations about optimal health.

Time to Eat Butter

Dr. Dwight Lundell, a heart surgeon who has been practicing for over 25 years and performed 5000 open heart suguries says, “Forget the science that has been drummed into your heads for decades.  The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease is non-existent.”  This viewpoint validates what Dr. Duke Johnson has published in his book, The Optimal Health Revolution, which is recommended by this blogger.

Inflammation is the cause of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke.  It comes from eating Omega 6 fatty acids, the IL1 gene, refined sugar and flour, toxins, pesticides, preservatives and stress.  Omega 6 fats are found in the cheaper oils, dark meats and processed foods that have a longer shelf life.  The only oils recommended by Dr. Johnson are olive and canola.  Dr. Lundell recommends olive oil and butter. 

For further information about inflammation and your diet go to Dr. Lundell’s article published  March 8, on the Signs of the Times website.  Dr. Johnson’s book can be found in the recommended reading here at
