If you can answer yes to even one of these questions, you need to read this book. Because by following Dr. Jonathan Sackner Bernstein's breakthrough plan, you could cut your individual risk of heart attack in half-even if you don't start an exercise program or change your diet.
Under Dr. Sackner Bernstein's plan, you will be screened for heart disease with a few doctor-ordered blood tests. Then, depending on the findings, you will be treated with up to four tested and safe medications: an aspirin, an ACE-inhibitor, a statin, and a beta-blocker. The scientific evidence for this strategy is overwhelming: the medications work, they stave off heart disease, and they bring heart health back.
Explaining the science as well as how to talk to your doctor about his or her necessary involvement, Before It Happens to You will help you identify your heart issues. Providing both prevention advice and treatment advice, it can and will save lives.« less
