DESCRIPTION: By age 10, nearly all kids have fatty streaks in their arteries This is the first sign of atherosclerosis, the leading cause of death in the United States. So the question for most of us is not whether we should eat healthy to prevent heart disease, but whether we want to reverse the heart disease we may already have.
Given the importance of this message, I encourage folks to please share this video with those in your circles. I know it’s scary, but hope it’s empowering at the same time. The bottom line is that we have tremendous control over our medical destinies.
How do we go about reversing our heart disease? I address that exact question in my new live annual review presentation More Than an Apple a Day (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/more-than-an-apple-a-day-preventing-our-most-common-diseases/). Or, for shorter snippets:
