Heart and Arterial Disease
The book, Heart and Arterial Disease is an intelligent guide that explains
why more than 100 million Canadians and Americans have high blood pressure,
coronary artery disease and are at risk of having heart attacks and strokes.
They should seek the benefits of complete diet revision. We recognize
considerable overlap of common diseases that originate in the food supply. A
person with arterial disease often is overweight and has diabetes, for example.
Here is Dr. Gislason's Preface:
This book is written to inform people who are at risk of vascular disease or
who already have diagnosed disease. The issues are complex and patient study is
required to form an educated opinion about what strategies are desirable to
prevent and to manage these common diseases. Concern about arterial disease has
high priority in the public perception of disease. Drugs used to manage arterial
diseases are among the most profitable chemicals ever invented. The
extraordinary growth in variety and profitability of drugs to treat high blood
pressure, high cholesterol, and manage heart attacks and strokes is unmatched in
medicine. Big money is invested in marketing and vested interests compete to
control the public perception of these diseases.
Cardiologists know that atherosclerosis is a disease caused by eating too
much of the wrong foods and exercising too little, but they are primarily
interested in prescribing drugs. They earn money and gain prestige from knowing
about these drugs. They tend to ignore the advantages of changing
disease-causing conditions and focus on treating the consequences. In all
fairness to physicians, most of their patients will not cooperate with attempts
to modify their behavior and do not alter their disease causing life-style.
Most human problems can be solved by changing human behavior. This
book is written for the intelligent, well-motivated reader who is capable of
change. Too many humans are unwilling or unable to change and will remain
victims of their own habits. This is not to argue that constructive changes in
diet and lifestyle are easy to achieve. It is to argue that if you understand
the issues and pursue a healthy revision of your food choices, exercise more,
and lose weight you can enjoy a healthier, longer life. The Alpha Nutrition
Program is comprehensive diet revision.
The topics discussed are
Atherosclerosis, the food disease
