Heart Attack Predictors

Heart Attack Predictors

A World Health Organization study involved thousands of men and women in 16 countries. It was found that low levels of vitamin E in the blood was a good predictor of a heart attack 62% of the time. This compares to elevated blood cholesterol being predictive only 29% of the time and elevated blood pressure only 25% of the time.

In recent years Americans have been favoring plant seed oils made from corn, safflower, sunflower and other plants grown in the more southern latitudes. These oils are high in omega-6 fatty acids and need to be avoided. If you consume more omega-6 oil than omega-3 oil you are more susceptible to the metabolic disorders of arthritis, asthma, eczema and cancer in addition to heart problems. Use olive oil as much as possible and increase your consumption of flaxseed oil, hemp seed, leaf lettuce, cold water fish and walnuts which are good sources of omega-3 oils.
