Cardiovascular disease causes more deaths than cancer, accidents, and infections combined. This timely book explains what the cardiovascular system does, how it works, what happens when it becomes diseased, and what can be done to fix it. Therapeutic options-treatment without an operation, a catheter-based procedure, or major surgery-are explained in detail, and a patient's right to choose treatment options is emphasized. The growing epidemic of diabetes is also discussed in detail. Also included is the Better Life Diet, a seven-day menu plan for eating for a healthier heart.
