The Good News is you can choose a better path, replace some bad habits, make some better food choices, add a supplement or two to alter and even reverse your path to heart dysfunction or disease.
I recommend you read an incredible book, No More Heart Disease - How Nitric Oxide Can Prevent, -Even Reverse- Heart Disease and Strokes by Dr Louis J. Ignarro (Nobel Laureate in Medicine). It will change your life and the way you care for your heart health.
Other doctors are saying, " Louie Ignarro and colleagues revolutionized the science of arterial aging (heart disease, strokes, memory loss, impotence, wrinkling of the skin) with their breakthrough work on NO. Now he reveals how to apply that knowledge to your arteries. May we all have younger arteries by adopting his easy plan so elegantly and simply laid out for you and me in this book."~ Michael Roizen, M.D., author of Real Age.
We only get one heart, so protect it, change a few bad habits and help change those statistics. And, by the way, Happy Valentine's Day.
