"Four of the six leading causes of death -- diabetes, heart disease, cancer and obesity -- are related to nutrition ... [but] many doctors don't ask questions about diet until the patient has a heart attack."
Dr. Steve Zeisel,
Chairman, Nutrition Department, University of North Carolina

Coronary heart disease (CHD) accounts for more deaths annually than any other disease or group of diseases. More than 1.25 million heart attacks occur each year, and more than 500,000 people die as a result.

It is generally accepted that high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, and cigarette smoking play causal roles in the development of atherosclerosis, which leads in turn to narrowing of the arteries and development of CHD. For millions of Americans, the most effective CHD preventive strategies are to avoid smoking cigarettes, to avoid obesity, and to lower high blood cholesterol.

Diet is the cornerstone of therapy to reduce blood cholesterol level whether or not drug therapy is eventually added to the regimen. In general, drug therapy is not recommended without at least 6 months on optimal diet. Healthy Heart Nutrition helps you identify and eliminate high-fat, high-cholesterol foods from your diet. It also helps you set up plan to achieve a desirable weight and avoid obesity. As a result you can obtain the benefits without the risk associated with side effects of lipid-lowering drugs. Studies have shown that many CHD patients can reduce their cholesterol levels substantially with diet alone. When drugs are required, simultaneous modification of the diet may reduce their dosage requirements, cost and potential side effects. According to the National Cholesterol Education Program adult treatment guidelines, over 40 million adult Americans could benefit from dietary education and treatment.
