And then additionally: From an article in the Guardian 16/May/2000.
Back in 1969 a Harvard graduated medical researcher at Boston by the name of Kilmer McCully was examining the tissues of a baby who had died at age 2 months. The child had suffered from homocystinuria. Homocysteine (Homo-Sis-teen) is an aminoacid / protein, so this child had excess of this protein to the degree that it could be found in its urine.
What he discovered was the arteries of this child were like that of a very old person - one who had suffered a heart attack or stroke.
He checked on a few other babies suffering from the same problem and his findings were confirmed.
He realised that perhaps it was the high levels of Homocysteine that was damaging the arteries and not the fat intake. Homocysteine is made from another protein -methionine - which comes from animal proteins, i.e. meat, milk and eggs.
In 'test tube' studies it can be shown that Homocysteine attacks and injures blood vessel linings, it allows scar tissue to build up and also encourages blood clots (essential for well being otherwise we would bleed to death in ourselves, but if the levels are high, then you already know the results).
Even from the autopsies and dissections done by Leonardo da Vinci atherosclerosis (build up of fat and other deposits in the arteries) could be seen, especially in the rich of the time - who ate more meat and animal products.
McCully tried to publish, but as the whole medical thought was on fat and cholesterol, so they even took his lab away! After all the drug houses had invested a lot of money on cholesterol reducing drugs and had to get their money back some how! Ditto the food industry.
30 years on, now the medical profession is re-thinking. The Lancet regards Homocysteine as the prime cause of heart disease.
Now the good news: The levels of Homocysteine can be naturally controlled by Vitamins B6 and B12 and also folic acid. [Green vegetables, fruit and whole foods but take care as these are easily destroyed by processing]
Happy eating. Enjoy your salads and uncooked greens.
Good health
Best wishes from
