Die From A Heart Attack…Or Not
(BlackDoctor.org) — The number one cause of death in the United States is heart disease. Typically, heart disease deaths are due to plaque clogging the arteries of the heart so that not enough blood reaches the heart.
Medical research is now clear – heart attacks are nearly 100% preventable through dietary and lifestyle changes alone.
Few doctors dicuss this with their patients and it is rare that you will hear it addressed in this manner by mainstream media or governmental agencies. Nevertheless, the tremendous benefits of lifestyle changes are very much true, and there is much research to prove it.
In 1985, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn began a study in which he got the best results ever recorded in the treatment of heart disease using a very low fat, plant based diet and only a minimal amount of cholesterol lowering medication. The result of the study was a 50% reduction in cholesterol levels.
