"What you don't know can kill you," writes Linda Ojeda in Her Healthy Heart. For example, did you know that heart disease and stroke are killing women in record numbers--six times as many as breast cancer, and twice as many as all forms of cancer combined--yet can be prevented and reversed with small lifestyle changes? Ojeda goes beyond the eat-low-fat-and-exercise advice we've all heard a million times. She discusses nutrients, supplements, stress, spirituality, and unhealthy vs. heart-healthy behavior. She describes what conditions and actions increase risk, and what you can do to reverse the effects, with every point backed up by scientific studies. Where there's conflicting information, she presents both sides and makes her best recommendation.
Ojeda has always been ahead of her time--she wrote Exclusively Female before women knew they could alter the way they felt before and during their periods, Menopause Without Medicine before the great flood of menopause books, and Safe Dieting for Teens, the first dieting book aimed at teenagers. Now she again shares the science we haven't heard, this time for our hearts' sakes. This remarkably informative resource will motivate you to take action. --Joan PriceFrom Booklist:
Most research on heart disease, the number-one killer of women, has been conducted on men. Ojeda, author of books on natural health, offers in this handbook a balanced view of women and heart disease by interpreting recent and often conflicting research. Part 1 provides an introduction to heart disease, statistics on its occurrence and mortality, and extensive coverage of myriad risk factors. Part 2 focuses on the roles of various dietary components: cholesterol, fat, fiber, and protein; part 3 discusses beneficial antioxidants, B vitamins, minerals, and other supplements. The concluding section covers three proven heart-healthy diets, suggested supplements, and beneficial behavioral and lifestyle changes, and provides a risk questionnaire. Ojeda seasons all reported findings with common sense and moderation. A bibliography and references conclude this compact look at the topic. Penny Spokes
