Do This and STOP Deadly Heart Attacks
Everywhere we turn, we hear about how heart disease is America’s number-one killer.
But ask your doctor how to avoid heart problems, and what will he tell you?
He’ll say you should avoid unhealthy foods and exercise more.
Not bad advice… but there’s a MAJOR risk to your heart that NOBODY ever talks about.
And it can determine whether you suffer a massive, life-threatening heart attack… or not.
For years, researchers have realized that parts of the world that get more sun tend to have less multiple sclerosis.
Now, studies are uncovering that spending time in the sun can reduce your risk of something just as devastating—but far more deadly:
Massive heart attacks.
A massive heart attack is the most serious kind because it occurs when an artery becomes completely blocked, preventing blood from getting to the heart, and causing it to immediately start to die. (The scientific name for it is a ST-elevation myocardial infarction, or STEMI.)
There are about 250,000 massive heart attacks every year in the U.S. alone.
Mounting evidence is showing that these massive attacks occur in seasonal patterns:
- There are far more attacks in the winter than in the summer.
- In the summer, attacks are more likely to happen at night than during the day.
In other words, lack of sunlight seems to be a trigger for these deadly massive heart attacks.
What this study doesn’t look into is the why—but previous research gives us insight into that important question.
Exposure to sunlight has been shown to reduce blood pressure—a key risk factor for heart attack and stroke. It works by increasing nitric oxide, an important signaling molecule that helps blood vessels relax and dilate.
Your skin has a lot of nitric oxide, and when it is exposed to UVA from the sun, it gets transferred from the skin into circulation.
Interestingly, many of the studies showing a connection between sunshine and heart health show that it happens independently from vitamin D. That’s because the radiation emitted from the sun is crucial for regulating so many processes in the body that are vital for overall good health and longevity.
Just another reason to make sure you’re spending time outside every day.
I know I am!

If you’re diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, your doctor will give you meds to take. But no drug can cure Alzheimer’s. And no drug can prevent it, either. But you don’t need to take a drug to prevent the disease. A new study has shown that there’s a drug-free way to reduce your risk by nearly...
Surgeons love to operate… and men with prostate cancer are sitting ducks. Having cancer surgically removed might seem like an obvious choice—but it’s not. In reality, doing nothing is likely your best, safest option. The problem is that current testing options don’t tell you if your cancer is aggressive (and needs to be removed), or...
Leave it to Big Pharma to sell you one drug to help prevent heart attacks… and another that can CAUSE them. That’s right. A popular diabetes drug can increase your risk of numerous types of heart issues… including heart attacks. Big Pharma has known about this risk for years—and the drug is banned in Europe....
No one wants to undergo chemotherapy. But for most patients, the threat of side effects like nausea, hair loss, fatigue, and mouth sores is a small price to pay for the hope of becoming cancer-free.

It’s no secret that we already have enough factors stacked against our heart health.

Alzheimer’s disease isn’t just about your genetics. Just because your dad or granddad had the disease doesn’t mean you WILL too. You see, only a very small percentage of Alzheimer’s cases are actually inherited from a parent. It’s called familial Alzheimer’s disease, and these cases typically start in your 30s or 40s. Now, a recent...
I’m used to being called a quack by now. Any time your recommendations go against the mainstream’s ideology, they’re quick to try to discredit you. Nevermind the fact that it’s all 100% backed by science. Nevermind the fact that it works. Case in point: It’s the number one thing I’m criticized for recommending. Yet studies...
Invasive breast cancer impacts the lives of one in every eight women. Of course, you want to do everything in your power to make sure you or someone you love is not one of those women. But wouldn’t it be even better if we could cut that number to 1 in 10, or 1 in...
