    Heart attacks

    I've been researching a lot latley about how cholesterol is not the cause of heart attacks, it helps prevent heart attacks. There are a lot of sources stating this, but nothing that I can find tells me what DOES cause heart attacks. My guess is inflammation of something. And grains cause inflammation?

    Too much sugar, omega 6, inflammation and inactivity tend to cause heart attacks.

    If you open someone's bathroom cabinet and see a load of bandages it doesn't necessarily follow that they sustain a lot of injuries.

    A low carb diet is a low inflammation diet according to Dr John Briffa. I input lots of foodstuffs that I eat on the Inflammation Factor websiteand nothing I eat was more than -10 on a scale that goes down to -200 so looks like he's right.
