- The AHA recommends children eat lots of junk food and GMO processed, pesticide-laden oils for "heart health"
- The AHA is non-profit but still rakes in $800 million a year from the Dairy, Canola, and Big Pharma industries
- The AHA pushes "low fat diet" propaganda, knowing it causes disease and disorder for millions of Americans
- Coconut oil, grass-fed butter and saturated fat actually reduce the risk of heart disease, despite the "advice" from the corrupt AHA
- For "heart health," the AHA recommends dangerous statin drugs, GMO vegetable oils and high sugar cereals coated with weed-and-child-killing glyphosate
The “AHA” is a non-profit business that draws huge sums of money from General Mills and Kellogg’s while endorsing their products with the infamous AHA “heart healthy” logo as a favor exchange. For each logo the AHA dishes out, they receive $7,500 per year (a grand total of over $2 million a year). Formed in New York City in the 1920s, The AHA business model is similar to the AMA (American Medical Association) in that they endorse products that cause disease and disorder while claiming they are protecting American health while they publish “standards on basic life support and advanced cardiac life support.” They are currently the fifth most infamous charity and “non-profit” in the country. The AHA has repeatedly, over the years, promoted the haphazard replacement of saturated fat with inflammatory omega-6 polyunsaturated fats for reducing heart disease risk – a poor recommendation without grounded research.

The list of junk science foods the AHA “recommends” is long and mind-boggling to anyone who knows anything about health. That confounding list includes high sugar breakfast cereals, processed meat products loaded with nitrates and nitrites, and even chocolate milk from cows given artificial hormones and antibiotics. The AHA “diet” elevates blood insulin levels, elevates blood glucose and increases arterial inflammation – all conditions that literally contribute to heart disease. The high carbohydrate, low fat diet has been proven by science and expert nutritionists to be a huge mistake, leading to diabetes, cancer and the one disease, which is the leading killer in the United States, that the organization is purported to prevent.

Exactly who are the major funding companies for the corrupt American Heart Association? Here’s a short list:
Amarin (Pharmaceutical Company)
Amgen (Pharmaceutical Company)
AstraZeneca (Pharmaceutical Company)
Eli Lilly (Pharmaceutical Company)
Glaxo-Smith Kline (Pharmaceutical Company)
Merck (Pharmaceutical Company)
Pfizer (Pharmaceutical Company)
Regeneron/Sanofi (Pharmaceutical Company)
Takeda (Pharmaceutical Company)
California Walnut Commission (incentivized to undermine saturated fats)
Ag Canada and Canola Oil Council (incentivized to undermine saturated fats and promote vegetable oils).
National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (incentivized to undermine the value of coconut oil).
Business is good for the AHA. They reel in $800 million a year. It all started heading down hill fast for Americans when the National Cholesterol Education Program, National Institutes of Health, and American Heart Association all vigorously promoted the low-fat, high-carb diet in the 1980s, along with the completely twisted boondoggle of a “food pyramid.” They all fueled the obesity epidemic, along with type II diabetes, metabolic syndrome and lipid abnormalities.
The “authority” of prestigious medical organizations simply cannot be trusted by Americans, and it’s been that way for a century. The FDA, AMA, ADA (American Dental Association) and CDC are all just businesses run under the guise of non-profit, regulatory agencies, when in fact, they’re all funded and run by Big Pharma and Big Food. It’s obvious by the marketing propaganda they all push that’s scripted and designed to send Americans straight to the chemically dosed medicine that makes the food-borne illnesses even worse.
The AHA pushes “low fat diet” propaganda, knowing it causes disease and disorder for millions of Americans
If the AHA stopped pushing the “low fat diet” propaganda, they would certainly lose a majority of their funding, and their years of pushing that propaganda would all come into question and be exposed. It’s a toxic mission through and through with no end in sight.
The AHA claims to be fighting strokes also, yet just recently, headlines around the world on the internet, in newspapers, and on television regurgitated the same main lie,
“Because coconut oil increases LDL cholesterol, a cause of CVD [cardiovascular disease], and has no known offsetting favorable effects, we advise against the use of coconut oil…”
Yet the benefits of coconut oil are a mile long. Coconut oil improves cholesterol, (3) improves blood lipids, helps people lose weight, has anti-microbial properties, has anti-viral properties, is anti-inflammatory, and helps reduce the risk of heart disease. So then why would the lead author of the AHA report say he has no idea why people think coconut oil is healthy? The AHA “theory” behind this false claim are that saturated fat increases LDL cholesterol which is a cause of cardiovascular disease, but this theory has been thoroughly debunked dozens of times for the past two decades. Even the USDA changed their guidelines after the cholesterol panic was ousted as being based on fake research. (2)
Coconut oil, grass-fed butter and saturated fat actually reduce the risk of heart disease, despite the “advice” from the corrupt AHA
How is that theory wrong? The term “LDL” describes multiple types of LDL particles, and not all are associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD). The AHA is insidiously trying to trick everyone. The LDL particles from saturated fat, in fact, are not associated with CVD. More than 15 meta-analyses and systematic reviews confirm there is no link between saturated fat intake and CVD. (1) The AHA simply cherry-picked a few studies from way back in the 1960s to create this twisted, sickening, money-making biased report.
To the very contrary, while the AHA claims that coconut oil and saturated fat in general has “no known offsetting favorable effect,” it is now widely known in science and nutrition that saturated fat raises HDL cholesterol, thereby reducing the risk of heart disease. Human breast milk is the perfect example of this. A majority of the calories in breast milk come from the fat, and half of that is saturated fat – totaling up to six times the percentage of cholesterol that the average adult consumes. This has been going on for millennia.
The truth is that LDL cholesterol delivers nutrients around the body, is an anti-oxidant, helps the immune system, and is anti-inflammatory. Plus, low levels of LDL cholesterol are associated with horrific health detriment.
For “heart health,” the AHA recommends dangerous statin drugs, GMO vegetable oils and high sugar cereals coated with weed-and-child-killing glyphosate
Listening to the advice of the AHA leads Americans to one same place – an early grave. The AHA purposely serves big government, big pharma, big food and the evil corporations behind all of that. While promoting “junk science” the AHA attacks healthy foods like coconut oil, that by the way, are sustainable (8) and help prevent Alzheimer’s disease. The AHA functions to expand the scope of government, federal funding, Medicare and entitlement programs like SNAP, that help American buy more health-devolving junk food. (4)
The AHA is a huge failure. It’s nothing more than a lobbyist organization and a well-oiled propaganda machine. (6) Most allopathic doctors know better than to push the AHA propaganda, but they have no choice. Their job is to dispense chemical-based drugs to cover up and relieve the symptoms of deeper rooted disease and disorder (5) caused by eating processed sugar, pesticide-laden vegetable oils, margarine, “low fat” and “fat-free” products. All of this funds the lucrative cancer industry and the chronic sick care industry (7) that makes MDs, pediatricians and oncologists rich, not to mention the corporations that back all of the diagnostic equipment and drugs being manufactured and dispensed.
