its so true I see this every day, the patients usually feel helpless to change anything because the doctor is supposed to be the expert and they have gone to him all their lives. And it is an excellent way to obtain the numbers on the Georgia Guidestones, what a deal and they make money too. I believe they knew early on because I saw when the assisted living places were being built all over and wondered why, they filled up with the people that could only stare into space. The normal for cholesterol used to be 340 and it was changed to 200 when these meds came out, we need to eat 65%healthy fats, 25% protein and 10% carbohydrates. The food pyramid also was a scam, cheap food for the schools to serve and sick people over time with sugar being the result of a high carb diet and our high body temperature caramelizes the sugar causing creme brule type of sugar coating of our vessels. The medical field has been hijacked as well as every thing else.
