Banyen's Description: 

The bestselling author of Super Immunity and The End of Diabetes presents a scientifically proven, practical program to prevent and reverse heart disease, the leading cause of death in North America—coinciding with the author’s new medical study revealing headline-making findings.

An expert in the science of food, Dr. Fuhrman speaks directly to readers who want to take control of their health and avoid taking medication or undergoing complicated, expensive surgery, the two standard treatments prescribed today.

Dr. Fuhrman’s “Nutritarian” plan begins with the food we eat. He focuses on a high nutrient per calorie ratio, with a range of options for different needs and conditions. He shows us what to remove and what to add to our diets for optimum heart health, provides menu plans and recipes for heart-healthy meals and snacks, and includes helpful questions for doctors and patients.

By understanding heart disease and its triggers, Dr. Fuhrman gives us the knowledge to counter-attack this widespread epidemic and lead longer, healthier lives.

A food is good or not so good on the basis of the amount of fiber, phytochemicals, antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and other (yet to be discovered) nutrients it contains in proportion to its number of calories… Consuming nutrient-rich foods is the critical secret explained in this book that will help you lower your cholesterol and protect yourself from heart disease.

His Aggregate Nutrient Density Index ranks the nutrient value of many common foods on the basis of how many nutrients they deliver to your body for each calorie consumed. It’s eye opening!

What I call “standard” medical care is ending. Doctors can no longer effectively—or ethically—treat patients with medications without discussing the power and absolute necessity of nutritional interventions…

 

Since heart disease and stroke are now the leading causes of death worldwide… This information is of vital importance and impacts every man, woman, and child. It should be taught in our schools.

“Dr. Fuhrman clearly lays out how a healthy enough diet can not only be cheaper and safer than pills and procedures for heart disease and high blood pressure but, critically, more effective.” Michael Greger, author of How Not to Die
