Book Description
We are on the cusp of an enormous breakthrough in preventing heart attacks -- forever. In The Heart of the Matter, Dr. Peter Salgo, associate director of the Open Heart ICU at New York Presbyterian Hospital, offers a simple formula to treat people before they get sick, which in turn will prevent heart attacks before they occur. For the first time in history, we know what really causes heart attacks. And that knowledge has led Dr. Salgo to this amazingly simple and straightforward program that will save millions of lives. First, everyone will benefit from statins, the cholesterol-busting drugs marketed as Lipitor, Zocor, and others -- which Dr. Salgo say should be available over the counter. Next, everyone should be tested for a silent infection called chlamydia pneumonia. Not to be confused with the sexually transmitted disease, chlamydia pneumonia is a common bacteria that more than half of all Americans have been exposed to without knowing it. Dr. Salgo explains the links between this disease and the causes of heart attacks. This is huge news because if heart disease is an infectious disease, then it can be prevented and cured with antibiotics. The final ingredient is aspirin. We always knew that it prevented heart attacks, but Dr. Salgo explains why in layman`s terms. This groundbreaking book also offers a self-test that readers can take to assess their own personal risk for heart disease. The Heart of the Matter is the beginning of a change in the treatment of heart disease. It introduces a preventative program that includes traditional diet and exercise guidelines as well as a blanket recommendation that adults, even young adults, incorporate medicines into their ongoing pursuit of health and longevity -- which, until now, seemed impossible to many. Now, without using a lot of indecipherable medical jargon, this invaluable new guide will show you exactly how to attain that longer, healthier life that so many people wish for.
