2014 Food Revolution Summit Highlights: Helping You To Heal Your Body & The World With Food
Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, a surgeon and author of the bestselling book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, explains, with irrefutable scientific evidence, how you can become “bullet-proof” to heart disease by changing what you eat.
According to Dr. Esselstyn, one in four US adults between 44 and 64 (and a higher % of people over 64,) are taking cholesterol altering statins, with some experiencing uncomfortable to dangerous side effects. Though research shows that cholesterol levels are not a great indicator of heart disease.
He says the magic carpet is the endothelium, the cells that line the blood vessels. They need nitrous oxide (a vasodilator) to prevent plaque and keep them open. Plaque is a cauldron of oxidated inflammation, which research shows, can be reversed by antioxidant foods.
The good news is that the hard science is there that food can heal the body. Dr. Esselstyn is featured in the Documentaries Fork Over Knives and Processed People to get this life saving information out to the public.
