“At least 80% of all ischemic heart disease—and maybe just about all of it—is preventable. And yet, despite over 30 years of national preoccupation with the risk and impact of heart disease, it remains the number one cause of death and a leading cause of chronic misery. Dr. Joel Kahn, a leader in preventive cardiology, is uniquely qualified help fix this, with provocative insights, a deep well of knowledge, and a clear view of the big picture.

Because Dr. Kahn is a cutting-edge leader in integrative cardiology and is sincerely invested in his own health, he would be able to beautifully tie together these elements in a teaching, experiential way that makes sense, is readily applied, and is fun and enlightening to the average person. As a clinician, I would heartily recommend such a book to patients, as there is no other text I can think of that would take his novel approach and be so thorough in providing a complete spectrum of information and resources.”
“Dr. Joel Kahn's book will give you the reasons ‘why’ all our hearts are in danger and necessary ‘how’ for self transformation.

It is about time that a cardiologist of the caliber of Dr. Kahn writes a book to educate both patients and other doctors how to avoid stenting blocked arteries. The need is there for a well respected and loved cardiologist to enlighten the public in this area. I follow Dr Kahn's work almost daily through his emails, and I hope his book will be published soon so I can direct my readers to his work.”
