Heart disease creeps up on you unawares. It develops silently and painlessly until it suddenly makes itself known in the form of clogged arteries, chest pain, palpitations, breathlessness, damaged heart muscles and valves, internal inflammation, heart attacks and ultimately a painful death. Heart disease can also cause permanent disability and a much reduced quality of life.
Unfortunately the vast majority people take no preventative action until some kind of symptom rears its ugly head. The time to combat heart disease is now, however healthy you may think you are. If you already have heart disease you can still ameliorate the condition (or arrest its development), and with time you can even reverse the disease.
When it comes to heart disease prevention traditional advice tells you to follow a low-fat diet, avoid high cholesterol foods, eat oily fish, take fish oil supplements and do exercise. Yet all such advice is not only wrong but is actually conducive to heart disease!
For example, the advice to do more exercise for the sake of your heart is almost universal, yet virtually all the latest research is showing that this is counter-productive - that exercise is actually bad for the heart (and bad for stroke prevention). Another myth is that less blood cholesterol is better; in fact the higher your blood cholesterol the better for health.
In 'Beat Heart Disease Now' you will discover why athletes have a far higher incidence of heart disease compared to non-athletes, and exactly how exercise triggers two little-known health issues that greatly accelerate the accumulation of plaque in the arteries. You will discover why exercise is a leading cause of heart disease and stroke, killing millions of people very year. You will discover why fish oil supplements and oily fish are so bad for health, and why we should increase rather than reduce our blood cholesterol.
This vital book really is an absolute 'must have' for anybody wanting good health.
