From the Back Cover
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States today—but it isn’t inevitable.
In fact, at least ninety percent of heart disease–related deaths are entirely preventable. The cure for America’s most lethal killer doesn’t require expensive, confusing, and life-altering medications or rounds of invasive and ultimately ineffective surgery. The truth is heart disease can be reversed; it is not a natural consequence of aging; nor does it have to take away from your quality of life.
In The End of Heart Disease, Joel Fuhrman, M.D., a board-certified physician and #1 New York Times bestselling author of Eat to Live and The End of Dieting, shows how you can prevent and reverse heart disease and its related symptoms with his revolutionary—both safe and proven—Nutritarian plan.
Grounded in the latest scientific research and Dr. Fuhrman’s twenty-five years of clinical experience treating heart disease, the program radically lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, reduces your weight, heals obstructive coronary artery disease, and can even eradicate advanced heart disease—all without the need for dangerous procedures like angioplasty or bypass surgery. In addition, you’ll enjoy a complete meal plan filled with a variety of delicious food options.
Eat better. End heart disease. Radically Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease and Make It Nearly Impossible to Have a Heart Attack—No Drugs or Medication Required
The End of Heart Disease will:
• Lower and normalize your blood pressure and LDL cholesterol
• Lower your weight, body fat, and resolve diabetes (type 2)
• Improve your immune function, lowering the risk of infection and cancer
• Maintain your youthful vigor as you age, and help you age more slowly
“Dr. Fuhrman lays out the science of ending and reversing heart disease using the most powerful drug on the planet: food. A whole-food, predominately plant-based diet works faster and better—and is cheaper—than any currently available treatments. If you have a heart, read this book!”—Mark Hyman, M.D., New York Times bestselling author and director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine
