Hundreds of thousands of people die every year from heart attacks (coronary heart disease) without a murmur of protest from the public, the press, or government agencies. Yet the nation's number one killer can be found right on the American dinner table! Do you mean that what we eat causes heart attacks? Not everything. The main culprits are excessive amounts of fat and cholesterol. The underlying problem in coronary heart disease is narrowing, hardening, and, eventually, plugging up of vital arteries that supply the heart with oxygen. The process is known as atherosclerosis. For more information, we recommend: Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease By Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., MD, Cleveland Clinic; Avery/Penguin Group, 2007 Based on the groundbreaking results of his 20-year nutritional study, Dr. Esselstyn explains, with irrefutable scientific evidence, how we can end the heart disease epidemic in this country by changing what we eat. People are born with clean, flexible arteries. They should stay that way throughout life. The arteries of many North Americans, however, are clogging up with cholesterol, fat, and calcium - a concoction that gradually hardens and eventually chokes off needed oxygen supplies.(Chiphealth.com/health_topics) "Heart disease before age 80 is our fault, not God's fault, or nature's will." --Paul Dudley White, M.D
