"What Is Deep Vein Thrombosis?"
"Deep vein thrombosis (throm-BO-sis), or DVT, is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep in the body. Blood clots occur when blood thickens and clumps together.
Most deep vein blood clots occur in the lower leg or thigh. They also can occur in other parts of the body.
A blood clot in a deep vein can break off and travel through the bloodstream. The loose clot is called an embolus (EM-bo-lus). It can travel to an artery in the lungs and block blood flow. This condition is called pulmonary embolism (PULL-mun-ary EM-bo-lizm), or PE.
PE is a very serious condition. It can damage the lungs and other organs in the body and cause death.
Blood clots in the thighs are more likely to break off and cause PE than blood clots in the lower legs or other parts of the body. Blood clots also can form in veins closer to the skin's surface. However, these clots won't break off and cause PE."
clots form due to the physiology of platelets
in order to prevent bleeding.
but in my opinion it breaks into pieces because of mechanical reasons like muscle movements.
the embolus causing blocks is radically distinct from
a block caused by atherosclerosis[and embolus together]
where the flow of blood is already constricted.
atherosclerosis is a gradual process of
decreasing inner diameter of an artery
due to accumulation of fats and debris by sticking to the artery walls=
this thing in almost all cases
so high fat eating ,especially saturated fats is a detriment to health.

i wrote article here
telling that when there are carbs in blood,the
body jumps for
carbs for atp,ie, energy,
because it is shorter path to what they call the citric acid cycle.
so fats become redundant easier than
in the absence of glucose..
this is not an excuse to reject carbs
because carbs are
available in vegetables with other nutrients which are inseparable.
naturally we can reject
the balanced meal and medicine[if necessary] is the optimum solution-
otherwise meet the long term consequences.
