The Heart of the Matter : The Three Key Breakthroughs to Preventing Heart Attacks
By the head of the Open Heart ICU at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital--an incredibly persuasive and revolutionary approach for lowering the risks of heart disease -- this plan links high cholesterol and Chlamydia as risk factors and lays out a program to combat both.
We are on the cusp of an enormous breakthrough in preventing heart attacks - forever. We are in the same place we were just before penicillin revolutionized the treatment of infectious disease, before fluoride eradicated tooth decay, and just before the polio vaccine brought that disease under control in this country. In The Heart of the Matter, Dr. Peter Salgo, the associate director of the Open Heart ICU at New York Presbyterian Hospital, offers a simple formula to treat people before they get sick, which in turn will prevent heart attacks before they occur.
For the first time in history, we know what really causes heart attack. And that knowledge has led Dr. Salgo to this amazingly simple and straightforward program that will save millions of lives. Dr. Salgo recommends using statins, antibiotics, and aspirin to prevent coronary heart disease. This groundbreaking book also offers a self-test that readers can take to assess their own personal risk for heart disease.
