The Silent Risk Factor for Heart Disease
Despite billions being poured into pharmaceutical drugs, people staying on top of cholesterol levels, and all those New Year’s resolutions to lose weight… we haven’t put a dent in heart disease.
It’s still the number one killer in the US, and it doesn’t look like that’s going to change anytime soon.
That’s because the medical establishment is focusing on the wrong problem.
There’s a major underlying cause of heart disease that gets overlooked because:
- It often goes undiagnosed.
- There aren’t any drugs to treat it.
But that doesn’t matter, because you don’t need drugs to fix this problem.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) occurs when you develop a buildup of fat in your liver. It can cause liver scarring and inflammation, and it can lead to liver damage and cirrhosis.
It’s also an overlooked risk factor for heart disease.
This is a major problem because at least one in four adults have NAFLD—but most people have no idea because it doesn’t produce any symptoms.
In fact, most people find out they have NAFLD by accident, as a result of something like a blood test or an ultrasound that was done for a different reason.
NAFLD and heart disease have many of the same risk factors: type 2 diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, increased abdominal fat, high triglycerides, etc.
So, if you don’t have any symptoms of this condition—and there are no drugs to treat it—what can you do about it?
NAFLD does not have to be a death sentence, and it’s not irreversible.
You can reduce your levels of liver fat—and slash your risk of heart disease in the process—with the same tried-and-true health advice that I’ve been giving you for decades.
Get plenty of movement (20-30 minutes of exercise per day), stop eating sugar and processed junk foods, and spend as much time outdoors in nature as you can manage.
You’ll be reducing your liver fat, your heart disease risk, and your waistline.
It’s a win-win-win.
P.S. A recent study highlighted a key lifestyle factor completely overlooked by most doctors that could be sending your risk of heart disease and diabetes skyrocketing. Click here for all the details.
