Reversing Heart Disease

Here is a remarkable study showing that coronary heart disease can actually be reversed.

The Journal of the American Medical Association reports on an experimental group of heart patients who made extensive changes in their lifestyle, including eating a vegetarian diet with only 10% fat.

This group reduced the amount of narrowing of their coronary arteries due to cholesterol and plaque build-up.

Furthermore, they had half as many heart attacks and other heart problems as a control group.

We used to think coronary heart disease could not be reversed, but this study shows clearly it can.
