According to the American Heart Association, high cholesterol is the leading cause of coronary heart disease, which continues to be the number-one killer in North America.

Introduction or preface
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the main cause of death by far worldwide. The published international research on the effects of cholesterol and triglycerides on coronary heart disease (CHD) is simply overwhelming and inarguable. High blood fatlevels are correlated with all-cause mortality (death from every majorillness) and not just CHD! Forty years of published international clinical research went into this book. There are many books available on heart and artery health, but nearly all of them are ineffective. This is not just a book on lowering blood fats, but one about total heart and artery health.
A low fat diet of natural foods is the only way to lower your blood fats. Your diet and lifestyle, not toxic drugs will provide youwith a healthy heart. Statin drugs are the second most prescribedin America. Making better foods choices is the secret toa long and healthy life. Also, over forty natural supplements arediscussed in detail. Beta-sitosterol, flax oil, beta glucan, and soyisoflavones are recommended as the cornerstone of your cholesterolsupplement program. In no other book are you going toread an explanation of how your basic hormones affect yourblood lipid levels. Diet, proven supplements, natural hormones,and exercise are the most important things you can do for ahealthy heart and circulatory system.
Everyone who reads this book will have the ability to naturally improve their blood lipid profile, have better heart and artery health, and live longer, without resorting to drugs or surgery. Prescription drugs only make you worse in the end. Nature has answers for all our health condition. You cannot poison your way to health.
Anyone can make continuing better choices in their daily food. You can choose an exercise you enjoy, even if it is just walking the dog a half hour a day. There are programs available to stop smoking, or drinking alcohol. It is easy to take the proven, inexpensive, effective, and safe natural supplements. You can balance your basic hormones cheaply, and without a doctor. These are things anyone can do.
I hope everyone who reads this book will put down their medication forever. You don’t need prescription drugs in your life. You cannot poison your way to health. CHD is by far the biggest cause of death in the Western world. Don’t be a statistic.
