Genre: Health & Fitness

As a drug chemist for a leading pharmaceu-tical company I made a startling discovery: you do not have to be dependent on FDA approved drugs to, avoid heart disease. In fact, research clearly shows the opposite. You don't need a single prescription drug to avoid this killer. The best selling drugs of all time are the cholesterol-lowering drugs known as "statins". They procure drug makers and their shareholders billions of dollars in profits every year. The success of these drugs is not attributed to their effectiveness but instead to slick and misleading marketing practices. This hype is fueled by egregious conflicts of interest amongst drug company servants disguised as experts. Don't I be surprised if your own doctor falls within this group. The truth be told, statin drugs are poisons - foreign to the human body and may at times be, life threatening. Avoiding heart disease should not be expensive or dangerous. A plethora of natural alternatives exist. Understanding them as outlined in this paradigm shifting book will arm you with the understanding and courage not to accept popular dogma. It may prove to be one of the greatest assets to your health.

NO More Heart Disease

Author: Louis Ignarro
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
ISBN: 1429972459
Release Date: 2006-01-24
Genre: Health & Fitness

Dr. Louis Ignarro discovered "the atom" of cardiovascular health--a tiny molecule called Nitric Oxide. NO, as it is known by chemists, is a signaling molecule produced by the body, and is a vasodilator that helps control blood flow to every part of the body. Dr. Ignarro's findings led to the development of Viagra. Nitric Oxide has a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system as well. NO relaxes and enlarges the blood vessels, prevents blood clots that trigger strokes and heart attacks, and regulates blood pressure and the accumulation of plaque in the blood vessels. Dr. Ignarro's current research indicates that Nitric Oxide may help lower cholesterol by facilitating the actions of statin drugs like Lipitor. The goal of the regimen presented in NO More Heart Disease is to age proof the cardiovascular system, keeping the vascular network clean and elastic through enhanced NO productivity. The plan is easy-to-follow without extreme lifestyle adjustments, involving taking supplements to stimulate Nitric Oxide production, incorporating NO friendly food into the diet, and a moderate exercise program.
