The holidays are in full swing and with it comes an increase in heart attacks. How could it be during this incredible month of celebration and joy that there could be an increased risk of death to go along with it?
As far as I am concerned it's very simple. Starting with Thanksgiving and continuing through to New Years, we let our hair down and let loose with an incredible amount of good cheer which includes a big increase in the consumption of animal protein which leads to increased homocysteine levels which leads to an increase in heart attack. It's sobering to remember that Chambers & McGregor showed that the average healthy male had a decrease of 85% in blood flow by simply consuming the amount of methionine found in two steaks.
