Highlights of How to Be Heart-Attack Proof

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. 

Choose antioxidant foods by looking for foods with a high ORAC value (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, a unit of measurement for antioxidants developed by the National Institute on Aging in the NIH) like blueberries and green leafy vegetables.

He suggested eating six servings (a fistful is a serving) of cooked green vegetables like Swiss chard, kale, beet greens, brussel sprouts, asparagus, with a few drops of balsamic vinegar, spread out over the day, to keep bathing your cells in antioxidants. 
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. 

Even better news is that a plant strong diet can also reduce most cancers, and open the arteries to the penis, which are smaller than the arteries to the heart. So erectile function can improve with a plant strong diet, as well as diabetes. Blood pressure can go down enough that he slowly weans his patients of blood pressure meds.
