A reader wrote to me on Facebook while I was in Africa with a question I get a lot, so I thought it was important to share with you: Dear Dr. Sears, I have recently (in the past six months) engaged in the journey to take back my health. I am a 38-year-old overworked and [...]
I wrote my first book The “T” Factor in 2000. In it, I described testosterone as the king of hormones, and showed how not having enough can be deadly, but having more of it can help you live longer and better.
It’s only taken conventional medicine 12 years, but they’re finally starting to realize what I’ve been saying all this time. I just read a new study where researchers show that not having enough testosterone can be deadly for your heart.
They looked at almost 4,000 thousand people and followed them for over five years. Those who had the least free testosterone were 71% more likely to die from heart disease than those who had the most.1
Most of the “advice” I see on Dr. Oz and Oprah, in Women’s Health and in the New York Times Magazine on Sunday seem to center on the same things.
These reports I’ve been seeing lately give women advice like suggesting you eat fake, processed “health” foods like flaxseed. But they’re unnatural to your body. People used to wear flax, not eat it.
And animal studies have found that overdose of flaxseed may cause shortness of breath, rapid breathing, weakness or difficulty walking, and may cause seizures or paralysis.1
Too many articles I’ve read also recommend you load up on more calcium that you could ever want or use. Meanwhile, studies show too much calcium puts you at a 31 percent greater risk for heart attack.2
And did you see the report on women’s heart health from the director of the Cardiovascular Nutrition Laboratory at Tufts University? It’s one of the most prestigious research universities in the country. And here she is, concluding that women should eat whole grains instead of vegetables.
Today I’m going to show you some real ways to stay healthy. Forget junk foods like soy, flax and whole grains. Here are four things you can use to avoid disease and help you stay happy and strong for life…
I’m not going to feel apologetic for being a man in our modern politically correct culture. Just because I’m a man doesn’t mean I’ve caused all the world wars, and testosterone is not the cause of every evil.
You’re even made to feel responsible for the criminal that rapes someone because they tell you he did it because of testosterone – that it’s a man issue, not a criminal issue.
But don’t let those PC bureaucrats talk you out of being a man.
