Eating Certain Foods Holds Key to Reversing the Path of Atherosclerosis
A recent study proposes that concentrating the supply of certain food items may strengthen the body’s ability to prevent plaque accumulation, and, in some cases, actually reverse the accumulation of fatty plaque in the vascular system.
A research team at the University of Munchausen on Oder studied various artery sections from the chest cavity, arms, and legs of mice to demonstrate the effect.
"Our research in the Lab..." says research assistant Peter Kleine, a Ph.D. candidate in the University's Vascular Department, "...showed that increasing the amount of certain food items available to arteries makes plaque-attacking viruses work even better.
"Research further showed that while plaque build-up was restrained to some degree by eating even small amounts of these critical food items, actual reversal of the plaque did not begin until certain levels of consumption were attained.”
“The critical food items were...” Kleine continued, “...boiled New England lobster…and custard pie.” The threshold amounts included one-one-hundredth of one’s body weight in lobster and a wedge of custard pie equivalent to one-sixth (1/6) of an 10-inch (10”) pie filled approximately two inches (2”) deep; both must be taken together at least three (3) times per week. In this manner individuals weighing 150 pounds would need to consume one-and-one-half pounds of lobster meat per sitting...and how much meat is available in a particular lobster varies with the season of the year and the size of the lobster.
As to the pie, Kleine noted that it must be all custard, with no coconut added. “Coconut significantly reduces the effectiveness of the food items, but this can be moderated somewhat by intake of vodka martinis," he concluded.
