A new study released earlier this month has shaken what the traditional medical community believes about heart health.
Worldwide, more than 500,000 heart patients are given stents annually to relieve chest pain. According to findings published in the prestigious medical journal the Lancet, these invasive heart stents may not actually reduce chest pain.
Sadly, heart stents are another example of how mainstream medicine has accepted misplaced treatments as the medical norm to ‘improve’ heart health. This shocking study rocked mainstream perspectives.
Over the past 75 years, hundreds of research studies have shown that bypass surgery and the “balloon” angioplasty procedure have failed to live up to their promise of easy success. For example, with regard to bypass surgery, angina heart pains recur in up to 20 per cent of patients during their first post-operative year and then in an additional 4 per cent for each year thereafter. A second bypass, or balloon procedure, is required in over 30 per cent of patients by 12 years after initial surgery. Re-operation carries a higher death rate and risk of heart attack associated with surgery, along with less complete relief of chest pain.
