Summary, etc.: Heart disease remains the leading cause of death in this country for men and women. And while we spend millions of dollars each year developing treatments, traditional procedures fail patients by focusing only on the symptoms of the disease, not the underlying causes. In Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., a former surgeon, researcher, and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic, challenges conventional cardiology by posing a compelling, revolutionary idea-that we can, in fact, abolish the heart disease epidemic by changing out diets The proof is in the incredible results of the patients who have followed Dr. Esselstynʼs ground-breaking program. The men and women in his twenty-year nutritional study-the most comprehensive study of its king-came to him with advanced coronary disease. Despite the aggressive traditional treatment they received-including bypasses and angioplasties-a number had been told by their cardiologists that they had less than a year to live. Within months of following a plant based, oil free diet, their angina symptoms ease, their cholesterol levels dropped significantly and they experienced a marked improvement in blood flow to the heart. Twenty years later they remain free of symptoms.
