Completely Cut Out the Plaque Buildup in Your Arteries – Exercising and Cardiovascular Disease. When’s Enough, Enough?
Decades of studies have concluded that physical activity is essential for preventing cardiovascular disease.
But how much exercise is enough to prevent heart attack and stroke?
A new study published in PLOS Medicine addresses this question using a new technology. And the answer may surprise you.
The American Heart Association and the World Health Organization both propose a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical exercise per week for good heart health, and the American Heart Association warns that approximately 80% of people do not achieve this.
This triggered a question in the minds of scientists from the University of Oxford: Why stop with 300 minutes a week? Would 600 or 1,000 minutes per week provide a greater heart health benefit than 300 minutes do?
Is there a point at which exercise no longer contributes to heart health?
These researchers did not want to use study participants’ sometimes inaccurate estimates of their own exercise levels. But with all the technology available in the 21st century, it is not necessary to do this anyway.
Instead, they recruited 90,211 UK Biobank participants who wore a wrist accelerometer to measure their physical activity for seven days between 2013 and 2015.
For the technologically challenged, an accelerometer is an instrument that detects the movement and vibration of your body and measures its acceleration and deceleration throughout the day. As such, it detects every bit of physical activity you engage in and can measure whether your movements are fast or slow.
None of these Biobank participants already had heart disease at the beginning of the study, and they were followed for an average of 5.2 years to see who required medical assistance for any form of heart disease.
During this time, 3,617 developed heart disease during the follow-up period.
The participants who exercised the least weighed more, had more inflammation in their bodies, and more often needed help with high blood pressure than the more active participants did. They also smoked more.
The scientists split their participants into three groups based on their activity level: moderate-intensity activity, vigorous-intensity activity, and total physical activity.
They further separated each of these three groups into four categories (called quartiles), from those who exercised the least to those who exercised the most.
For all three groups, they found that every increasing quartile of physical activity represented a decrease in heart disease risk.
Compared to those in the lowest exercise quartile, those in the second quartile were 71% as likely to develop heart disease, those in the third quartile were 59% as likely, and those in the highest quartile were 46% as likely.
This shows that the cardiovascular disease risk drops the most by just adding some exercise to your week.
But it also shows that the more you exercise, the less likely you’ll be to suffer stroke and heart attack.
However, exercising is not enough. To completely cut out the plaque buildup in your arteries, you must cut out this ONE ingredient you didn’t even know you were consuming…

Completely Cut Out the Plaque Buildup in Your Arteries – This Cooking Method Causes Heart Disease
A new study published in the journal Heart investigates how much of our heart attack risk is caused not by the type of foods we eat, but how we cook them.
These researchers concluded that one of the most popular cooking methods for meat, fish, and potatoes is also one of the most dangerous cooking methods for our heart.
In fact, using this cooking method increases your risk of heart failure by 37%.
The scientists wanted to answer two questions:
1. How much does frying increase our risk of heart disease?
2. How much does frying increase our risk of death from heart disease or any other cause?
They searched medical databases and discovered 17 studies examining the first question and six examining the second.
The 17 studies that investigated the occurrence of heart disease in people who ate a lot of fried food had 562,445 subjects with 36,727 major cardiovascular events.
When comparing those who ate the most fried food with those who ate the least fried food per week, they found that the first group had poorer heart health, including:
1. A 28% higher risk of major cardiovascular events like heart attacks and anginas.
2. A 22% higher risk of coronary heart disease (narrowed or blocked arteries).
3. A 37% higher risk of heart failure.
They also found a 37% higher risk of stroke in those who ate fried food, although they concluded that this may have resulted from the other forms of heart disease that these subjects had, instead of being a direct result of the fried food.
If this is not worrying enough, they also discovered that every additional 114 grams (or four ounces) of fried food per week led to a 3% increased risk of major cardiovascular events, a 2% increased risk for coronary heart disease, and a 12% increased risk for heart failure.
So eating less fried food will definitely help prevent heart attack. But to really improve your cardiovascular health and completely cut out the plaque buildup in your arteries, you must cut out this one ingredient you didn’t even know you were consuming…

Completely Cut Out the Plaque Buildup in Your Arteries – Cholesterol-Lowering Animal Feed for Humans Discovered
The old thinking was that eating food low in cholesterol would lower our blood cholesterol.
This has been debunked because your body actually makes most of the blood cholesterol itself. It has very little to do with what you eat.
However, a new study published in The British Journal of Nutrition reveals the mechanism through which a common animal feed can lower cholesterol in humans in a completely different way.
It actually helps your body eat up its own blood cholesterol.
More than 50% of barley produced in the United States becomes animal feed, but it is actually a very healthy human food.
In this new study, scientists gave 30 student participants either a barley breakfast or a control diet for five weeks. All of the students began the study with moderately high cholesterol.
After five weeks, the researchers tested the students’ cholesterol, their bodies’ absorption of cholesterol, their bodies’ production of cholesterol, and their bodies’ bile acid production.
They found that the barley eaters had lower cholesterol than the others, while their bodies’ cholesterol production and absorption remained the same.
Where they did find a difference was in bile acid production, with the barley eaters producing a lot more than the normal eaters did.
How does this work?
1. The beta-glucan fiber in barley prevents your body from absorbing bile acids from your intestine, causing them to be excreted in your stool.
2. As a result, the bile acid level in your liver drops, which prompts your body to produce more.
3. The liver secretes the enzyme cholesterol 7-a hydroxylase, which converts cholesterol to bile acids.
4. As your cholesterol is converted to bile acid, your cholesterol level then drops.
This makes barley, or a supplement made of beta-glucan, a good dietary intervention against high cholesterol.

But that’s just one piece of the puzzle to clean your arteries. Here is how I got my cholesterol under control and cleared out my 93% clogged arteries, by cutting out just one ingredient you may not even know you’re consuming…
This post is from the Oxidized Cholesterol Strategy Program. It was created by Scott Davis. Because he once suffered from high cholesterol, so much so that he even had a severe heart attack. This is what essentially led him to finding healthier alternatives to conventional medication. Oxidized Cholesterol Strategy is a unique online program that provides you with all the information you need to regain control of your cholesterol levels and health, as a whole.
