Dr. Klapper had a patient who was scheduled for by-pass surgery in the morning. When he drew the blood for analyses, floating in the test tube was a thick, greasy, white, sticky film. When the patient was asked what he had had for lunch, he replied, A cheeseburger and milk shake. The surgeon realized that what he had seen in the test tube was the fat from his patient’s lunch. During the operation on the following day, Dr. Klapper pulled a 4-inch long yellow sausage of fatty material from the man's artery, which was depriving the heart of oxygen.
Drastic measures are required in removing hardened fat from the arteries. A catheter may be pushed through the artery. This instrument balloons inside the artery to squash the plaque. A roto rooter acts as a flexible drill in the vein. Some patients actually die of a heart attack while undergoing these treatments. The surgery usually gives temporary relief, but the arteries plug up again unless there is a drastic change in diet.
Seventy-five percent of North Americans die due to disease related to fat consumption. Heart attacks and strokes often leave their victims crippled, paralyzed or blind. In filling our blood with sticky fat, we take a serious health risk.
Loma Linda University of California decided to test 24,000 people to determine mortality rates from heart disease. They found that lacto-ovo vegetarians (including dairy and eggs) had 66% fewer deaths from heart disease than their meat-eating counterparts. Pure vegetarians had an impressive 90% fewer deaths than the meat-eaters.
