WEEKLY 24-HOUR FASTS
New study reveals 24-hour water fast is good for your heart

The Independent
Monday, 23 May 2011


A new study reported in health and science website Science Daily claims that routine 24-hour water-only fasting is good for your health and your heart.

US research cardiologists found that fasting can lower your risks of developing coronary artery disease and diabetes, but also can improve your blood cholesterol levels. The study also reveals that fasting for 24 hours can bolster a metabolic protein called human growth hormone that protects lean muscles.

Another study reported in American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2007 also found a link between lower rates of heart disease and people who fast one day each month for religious practices.

Here's the link to the article. www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-...r-heart-2287944.html

By the way I had a brief email exchange with Dr. Benjamin D. Horne who is sited in the Science Daily article:

www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/04/110403090259.htm

While he was very curious to see the results of my blood work after my 40-days combined fast, which I provided him with, he was not particularly enthusiastic about sharing with our site the particulars of his research. I am sure it is all because of the liability issues, however, I wish American doctors were more open with their findings. When you have to rely exclusively on research conducted in other parts of the world, the general population in the US questions this information. Oh well, one step at the time I guess..:)

Thank you for sharing.

Milena, I am actually curious too about your blood work after the 40-days combined fast. Was the blood work taken right after the fast ended?

I've been thinking to have a blood work soon after I finish my long fast (which I haven't started yet), and 1 month after the fast ends (to see if the body resets to a "better normal" than before the long fast.
