Did you know that... * there is no good evidence showing that cholesterol leads to clogged arteries? * the standard method of measuring blood pressure is flawed? * aspirin could actually be one of the major causes of stroke? * bypass surgery can leave patients worse off than before? In the traditional Western medical world, most patients aren't told the full story of heart disease and how to get better. Nor are they told about some of the limitations of conventional treatments. In this book, the team at What Doctors Don't Tell You, the internationally respected health magazine and website, draws on 27 years of research into conventional and unconventional treatments and presents its findings to help you make informed decisions about your health, and the health of your family. This ground-breaking book reveals the true causes of heart disease and offers a myriad of solutions for maintaining a healthy heart, including the drugs to avoid, the lifestyle habits to embrace, the foods to enjoy or avoid, the supplements and alternative remedies to take, and much more. Most importantly, it reveals that it's never too late to make beneficial changes to control - and even reverse - the symptoms of heart disease.
