Metabolic Syndrome Can Be Deadly
February 26, 2013 by Bob Livingston
Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Americans have metabolic syndrome — a condition that has terminal implications if it isnâ€™t treated speedily.
Metabolic syndrome is characterized by an oversized stomach, a big belly and a huge waistline. If your waistline is oversized, you should pay attention. Metabolic syndrome causes high blood pressure, high lipid (fat) profile, high C-reactive protein (CRP) and high inflammation. All these indicators lead to heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
Huge stomach growth indicates the growth of a stomach tumor either benign or malignant. Body fat (in this case, stomach fat) is by definition a tumor. What does the body do with tumors? It considers that tumors are live organisms that must be fed nutrition through a new blood supply.
Angiogenesis is a medical term that describes the natural body process of creating a collateral blood supply. This is actually the creation of an artery system for the purpose of a new blood supply to the body.
Fat becomes a new human organ that must be fed through the spontaneous creation of a new artery system identical to our natural artery system. We call this new system a collateral artery blood supply system.
So body fat is a live gland that grows into the body and that is nourished with a new blood supply called angiogenesis. Angiogenesis is both bad and good. It is bad if it feeds a new blood supply to stomach fat. It is good if it feeds a new blood supply to the heart.
If a person develops occluded (blocked) arteries to the heart and doesnâ€™t die of a heart attack, his body, given time, will grow new arteries around the blocked arteries, generating a new blood supply. We could call this angiogenesis â€śnatural bypass.â€ť This is a lifesaving extension.
But how can the body get rid of bad angiogenesis like the growth of unwanted stomach fat that we see so much of in America? It can be done and must be done if we are to get rid of dangerous belly fat that causes metabolic syndrome.
Simply reducing calories will not do it unless you change from the standard American diet (SAD) to a nutritious diet. To get rid of belly fat and metabolic syndrome, you have to stop eating foods and stop taking drugs that cause and promote angiogenesis. Instead, switch to anti-angiogenesis foods.
There are natural foods that are anti-angiogenesis; that is, they kill the new blood supply that is feeding belly fat. Itâ€™s up to us to stop angiogenesis and switch to anti-angiogenesis foods. The fat will disappear over a few months, given time, after the body starts to cut off the blood supply.
Metabolic syndrome is a serious medical problem, and it is widespread in America. Itâ€™s a food disease. We have to be re-educated to change from the SAD diet to the nutritarian diet. It is the greatest discovery of nutritional science.
This is not another weight-loss fad, but a sustainable life change to new health. I find it delightful; and I believe you will, too.
