173: The #1 Killer – and they’re treating it ALL wrong
But my guest says the scariest part is this:
Most of the common “fixes” out there, like maintaining low cholesterol levels and taking preventative medicine may NOT be helping…
In fact, he believes these recommendations are often doing more harm than good.
And if you’ve read my work, you know – my guest and I are on the same page.
I’m joined by Jonny Bowden, aka the “nutrition myth buster,” and he’s a board-certified nutritionist and expert on diet and weight loss. He recently re-launched his bestselling book, The Great Cholesterol Myth, Revised and Expanded: Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won’t Prevent Heart Disease – And The Statin-Free Plan That Will.
On this episode, Jonny and I reveal the TRUTH about cholesterol, expose the REAL villain when it comes to heart disease, and share what you can do TODAY to optimize your health and support a healthy heart.
