The Secret To Heart Health

The Healthy Diet Podcast for this week covers what you can do to prevent heart disease. Yes, you really have control over this disease.

Show notes:

  • We were reminded of how important it is to take care of your health this week when Alan’s mom was taken to the hospital.
  • We also share the number one secret for preventing heart disease after reading the book Prevent And Reverse Heart Disease by Dr Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr.
  • Dr Esselstyn works and the Cleveland Clinic and became disillusioned when he and his colleagues weren’t doing anything to prevent the diseases they were operating on people for.
  • Some of his colleagues weren’t interested in prevent heart disease.
  • In Dr Esselstyn’s research he found that the United States was actually in the minority when it comes to heart disease. In other words, world wide heart disease is not common.
  • People that live in countries that eat a plant based diet don’t have heart disease.
  • The evidence for what may be causing most heart attacks has been changing. They are thought to be caused by a clot rather than blockage from cholesterol. However, they ultimately are cause by cholesterol, but in a different way.
  • The good news is that you can do something about it by eating a plant based diet and keeping your cholesterol below 150, not 200. We reference the famous Framingham Heart Study.
  • Getting your cholesterol below 150 will eliminate heart disease according to Dr Esselstyn’s research.
  • We are going to give 5 of our listener’s the chance to win Prevent And Reverse Heart Disease by Dr Esselstyn.
