Dr. Mehmet Oz explains how we can overcome risk factors for heart disease with meditation

On the Red Carpet before the “Change Begins Within” Benefit Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the David Lynch Foundation, Monday, Dec 13, 2010, in New York City, Heather Hartnett of DLF.TV asks Mehmet Oz, M.D. a question.

DLF.TV: Why do you support the David Lynch Foundation?

Dr. Oz: Well beside the fact that I love David, the reality is, the number one driver of illness in America is stress. And you know why we don’t talk about it more? We don’t think we got a good solution. But what I’m going to talk about today—get rid of the stress in your life through Transcendental Meditation. It reduces your blood pressure by 10 points, your cholesterol by 30 points, and get this—you take all of the heart attacks, the strokes, and overall death rates down by about 50%! These are MASSIVE numbers! We don’t have any drugs that can compare to that, there are no operations I can perform to match that. And David, God bless him, is willing to put TM on the radar screen for a lot of Americans who otherwise would never see it.

Watch Dr. Mehmet Oz’s dynamic animated presentation on how we can overcome the build-up of stress and its deadly consequences. Then read this excellent article on The Huffington Post: Dr. Oz: Make Meditation Your New Year’s Resolution, written by Jeanne Ball.
