Cut on Your Sugar or Suffer Heart Disease; CBCD Presents Scientific Evidence
Industry: Health & Fitness
Eating foods loaded with sugar increases the risk of dying from heart disease. The CBCD explains the link between sugar consumption, viral infections, and heart disease.

Dr. Quanhe Yang and colleagues wrote that “Epidemiologic studies have suggested that higher intake of added sugar is associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD).” (1) However, Rachel Johnson, head of the American Heart Association’s nutrition committee said “Scientists aren’t certain exactly how sugar may contribute to deadly heart problems, but it has been shown to increase blood pressure and levels of unhealthy cholesterol and triglycerides; and also may increase signs of inflammation linked with heart disease.” (2) Dr. Yang is from the Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease believes that these researchers are overlooking the fact that sugar is also known to weaken the immune system. According to Dr. Sears, “Excess sugar depresses immunity. Studies have shown that downing 75 to 100 grams of a sugar solution (about 20 teaspoons of sugar, or the amount that is contained in two average 12-ounce sodas) can suppress the body’s immune responses.” (3) Certain viruses can then take advantage of a weak immune system and cause heart disease. As the Mayo Clinic notes, heart infections, such as pericarditis, endocarditis and myocarditis, are caused when a virus reaches the heart muscle.
It should be noted that viruses such as the Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) and HSV-1 (the virus that causes cold sores) are very common and infect a majority of the adult population. For example, the CDC notes that “EBV is found all over the world. Most people get infected with EBV at some point in their lives.”
Therefore, the Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) recommends that individuals take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin against the latent viruses in their bodies. The formula of these natural antiviral products was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin formula is effective against EBV and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with EBV…reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (4) The study authors also wrote that, “We observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (4) In addition, this natural antiviral was recently proven to reduce mental and physical fatigue in a post-marketing clinical study that followed FDA guidelines.
Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.
As noted above, inflammation of the heart muscle is most commonly caused by a virus. Dr. Daniel Kulick wrote on MedicineNet.com that “The virus invades the heart muscle to cause local inflammation. After the initial infection subsides, (when the virus established a latent infection) the body’s immune system continues to inflict inflammatory damage to the heart muscle. The most frequent symptom of myocarditis is pain in the chest. When myocarditis is more serious, it leads to weakening of the heart muscle. Myocarditis can then cause heart failure (with symptoms of shortness of breath, fatigue, fluid accumulation in the lungs, etc.) as well as heart rhythm irregularities from inflammation and/or scarring of the electrical system of the heart.” (5) In other words, latent viruses can lead to heart attacks.
What types of viruses are responsible for heart damage?
Heart infections can be caused by many different viruses including “some that cause influenza (coxsackievirus B and adenovirus), a rash called fifth disease (human parvovirus B19), gastrointestinal infections (echovirus), mononucleosis (Epstein-Barr virus) and German measles (rubella). Viruses associated with sexually transmitted infections also can travel to the heart muscle and cause an infection.” (6).
The CBCD proposes that individuals who like sugary foods consider taking a natural product that helps the immune system target latent viruses.

In this book, he explains how foreign DNA fragments can cause many major diseases. The book has been read by more than 5,000 scientists around the world, and has been reviewed in more than 20 leading scientific journals.
