The New York Times bestselling author of Eat to Live, Super Immunity, The End of Diabetes, and The End of Dieting presents a scientifically proven, practical program to prevent and reverse heart disease, the leading cause of death in America--coinciding with the author's new medical study revealing headline-making findings.

Dr. Joel Fuhrman, one of the country's leading experts on preventative medicine, offers his science-backed nutritional plan that addresses the leading cause of death in America: heart disease. An expert in the science of food, Dr. Fuhrman speaks directly to readers who want to take control of their health and avoid taking medication or undergoing complicated, expensive surgery, the two standard treatments prescribed today.

Following the model of his previous programs that have successfully tackled conditions from diabetes to dieting, Dr. Fuhrman's plan begins with the food we eat. He focuses on a high nutrient per calorie ratio, with a range of options for different needs and conditions. He shows us what to remove and what to add to our diets for optimum heart health, provides menu plans and recipes for heart-healthy meals and snacks, and includes helpful questions for doctors and patients.

By understanding heart disease and its triggers, Dr. Fuhrman gives us the knowledge to counter-attack this widespread epidemic and lead longer, healthier lives.

Back cover copy

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States today--but it isn't inevitable.

In fact, at least ninety percent of heart disease-related deaths are entirely preventable. The cure for America's most lethal killer doesn't require expensive, confusing, and life-altering medications or rounds of invasive and ultimately ineffective surgery. The truth is heart disease can be reversed; it is not a natural consequence of aging; nor does it have to take away from your quality of life.

In The End of Heart Disease, Joel Fuhrman, M.D., a board-certified physician and #1 New York Times bestselling author of Eat to Live and The End of Dieting, shows how you can prevent and reverse heart disease and its related symptoms with his revolutionary--both safe and proven--Nutritarian plan.

Grounded in the latest scientific research and Dr. Fuhrman's twenty-five years of clinical experience treating heart disease, the program radically lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, reduces your weight, heals obstructive coronary artery disease, and can even eradicate advanced heart disease--all without the need for dangerous procedures like angioplasty or bypass surgery. In addition, you'll enjoy a complete meal plan filled with a variety of delicious food options.
