Heart disease is the number one killer in America, and the widespread belief is that it is caused by a diet high in fat and cholesterol. But why do many heart attack victims have normal cholesterol levels? Why do the French, who love foie gras and red wine, rarely develop heart disease? How is it that the native peoples of Greenland and the Masai of Africa, whose diets consist largely of animal fat, have almost no heart disease?
Dr. Kilmer McCully explains what is really behind the epidemic of heart disease. The vitamin B deficiency in our Western diet has produced harmful blood levels of homocysteine, an amino acid produced in the body. Homocysteine damages the arteries, leaving them susceptible to cholesterol and fat deposits. Clogged arteries have been inaccurately viewed as the cause, rather than the symptom of heart disease. Now, McCully shows you how to cut your risk of heart disease by controlling the real culprit, homocysteine. Considered one of the most significant medical breakthroughs in recent years, McCully's findings have been validated by numerous large scale studies.
