BLOOD PRESSURE DRUGS
Women taking blood pressure drugs were 31% MORE likely to die from cardiovascular disease
Older women with hypertension who were taking blood pressure drugs were 31% were more likely to die from cardiovascular disease alone than women with hypertension not taking blood pressure drugs even though their average systolic pressure was 12 points lower (137 vs 149 mm Hg) according to a 2004 study.Read the entire article | Email this article

Potassium intakes of 7000 to 15,600 mg per day do not cause elevated blood potassium levels
Saturday, May 11, 2019
Humans evolved consuming 5-6 times more potassium than today (15,600 mg vs 2,700 mg)
Researchers at the University of California, San Fransisco (UCSF) analyzed 159 Stone Age diets and found that the average potassium intake was 15,600 mg of potassium per day versus an average today of roughly 2,700 mg per day in the US (Sebastian, 2006).
This means we evolved consuming roughly 5-6 times MORE potassium than we consume today! (15,600 mg vs 2,700 mg)
I believe that potassium bicarbonate is vastly superior to ALL blood pressure drugs because potassium bicarbonate is giving the body exactly what it needs—more potassium and more bicarbonate!
I believe that Potassium Bicarbonate is superior to Potassium Chloride because through human evolution we consumed a lot MORE potassium, a lot MORE bicarbonate, a lot LESS sodium and a lot LESS chloride as noted by the same researchers in 2001 (Frassetto, 2001).
This tells me that potassium bicarbonate is the potassium supplement to use, NOT potassium chloride.Read the entire article | Email this article
POTASSIUM & ESSENTIAL HYPERTENSION
Essential hypertension is nothing more than a potassium deficiency
95% of cases of high blood pressure are called “Essential Hypertension”, which, by definition, is high blood pressure of “unknown cause”.
What better excuse to give you a drug or two or three or four than to say, “We have no idea what is causing your high blood pressure!”
I believe that Essential Hypertension is complete and total NONSENSE!
I believe that 99.9% of cases of Essential Hypertension are caused by a potassium deficiency.
Here is how I came to realize this.Read the entire article | Email this article
