Almost one million Americans die each year from cardiovascular related illnesses. This number accounts for 41% of all deaths in the US each year. In fact, cardiovascular disease claims as many lives as the next eight leading causes of death combined, including cancer, accidents and AIDS. And, despite an aggressive campaign launched by the American Heart Association to counter the epidemic of heart disease, one person dies from it every 33 seconds. For nearly four decades, we have relied on medical myths to guide us in our attempts to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease. We have been told to reduce our cholesterol, saturated fat intake, and to take lipid-lowering medications. This book examines these myths and gives readers the facts to make better choices and live longer lives free of heart disease.
