Effects of a Dietary Portfolio of Cholesterol-Lowering Foods, vs Lovastatin on Serum Lipids and CRP

The pharmaceutical companies are scrambling to find a drug that lowers CRP levels. Well–look no further–Mother Nature has provided us with the tools already.

In this study we find that a mixed dietary approach at lowering cholesterol and CRP was as effective as lovastatin.

Can the pharmaceutical influence be so powerful as to suppress this kind of info from the general public???
