Cholesterol-How Much Do You Know?

By: ohthatwillbe1
In your battle to contain cholesterol it would be prudent of you to at least seek information in doing it the natural way. The use of anything other than the natural way may put you at further risk.

This is what some doctors say.

"Every drug increases and complicates the patients condition."

-Robert Henderson, M.D.

"Drugs never cure disease. They merely hush the voice of nature's protest, and pull down the danger signals she erects along the pathway of transgression. Any poison taken into the system has to be reckoned with later on even though it palliates present symptoms. Pain may disappear, but the patient is left in a worse condition, though unconscious of it at the time."

-Daniel. H. Kress, M.D.

These are sobering testimonies about pharmaceutical drugs. From doctors no less. Maybe it is time for us to seek more information on the natural way to contain cholesterol.
