A new study shows that Liposuction May Help Your Heart.
The study’s results show:
Within three months of the slenderizing procedure, patients’ triglyceride levels had dropped an average of 43 percent
This is great news for your heart. Unfortunately, this is yet another example of treating the symptom instead of getting to the root of the problem.
The procedure also led to a decrease in the numbers of white blood cells circulating in the blood, Swanson said. And this suggests that the removal of fat is reducing inflammation, which is also thought to be involved in the development of cardiovascular disease.
This is a good fact to know. Cardiovascular disease is usually caused by an inflammation of the arterial walls. While this study is about liposuction, you should instead take this tip from the excerpt – reducing body fat mass reduces arterial inflammation, which lowers your chance of cardiovascular disease.
One thing we don’t know yet is whether the effects will be long lasting, Mehta said. “I’d like to see what happens at six months, and at a year.”
I would also like to see what happens in a year. My guess is that since we are just treating the symptoms (obesity), instead of the problem (unhealthy lifestyle), the patients will eventually put the weight back on. And then once again, they will back on the road to cardiovascular disease.
Forget the liposuction. There is no easy way to lose weight. It takes hard work and reprogramming of your lifestyle. Treat the problem, not the symptom.MUST READ: The Definitive Guide for How to Lose Weight
