Publisher's Description

A must-read for those on cholesterol lowering medication and those with stents in their hearts

When it comes to our health, what we don't know can harm us most. Eighty-five percent of people over the age of fifty have significant blockage in the arteries of their hearts without any symptoms. Two-thirds of the time, the initial symptom is a full-blown heart attack. Doctors tell patients to watch their diet, get regular exercise, and lose weight--but they also increasingly prescribe "cholesterol lowering" drugs that patients will take every day for the rest of their lives. The problem is that a daily pill only addresses one small part of the cholesterol problem.

Dr. Furman wants readers to understand what their cholesterol numbers mean, how best to change levels of both the "lethal" LDL cholesterol and "hero" HDL cholesterol, and how to adjust their lifestyles in order to stay off of expensive medications that don't address the whole problem (and often have negative health-impacting side effects). Not only will Dr. Furman's advice make them healthier in the short term, it will also enable them to have more control over the aging process, allowing them to live longer, better lives.

    I have read many books on the latest research about eating healthy and healing our bodies with food rather than medicines. I was impressed with Dr. Furman's approach and appreciated the forthright way in which he addressed the dilemma that many Americans are facing with choosing the standard American diet. I liked the specific and clear cut methods that he lays out to help his reader immediately begin to take charge. This book is one I plan to share with everyone I know that wants to do something about improving their lives through better health.

    Didn't like the writing style

    This book has some good points, but I didn't really like the writing style. I found Furman simplified things too much and came off a little condescending. I felt like he had a superior air about him when talking about people's choices and how he makes the correct one but most people make the wrong ones. He kept mentioning the medical research, but I found that he didn't give the medical research, instead he talked specifically about his practice and his experiences. Personally, I would have liked if he had actually used the research and maybe used his practice and experiences to further explain it.
