From the Back Cover
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.
Eat better. End heart disease. Radically Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease and Make It Nearly Impossible to Have a Heart Attack—No Drugs or Medication Required
The End of Heart Disease will:
• Lower and normalize your blood pressure and LDL cholesterol
• Lower your weight, body fat, and resolve diabetes (type 2)
• Improve your immune function, lowering the risk of infection and cancer
• Maintain your youthful vigor as you age, and help you age more slowly
“Dr. Fuhrman lays out the science of ending and reversing heart disease using the most powerful drug on the planet: food. A whole-food, predominately plant-based diet works faster and better—and is cheaper—than any currently available treatments. If you have a heart, read this book!”—Mark Hyman, M.D., New York Times bestselling author and director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine
“This empowering plan will protect and strengthen your heart and transform your overall health. I have often relied on Dr. Fuhrman’s wisdom, and now you can too.”—Neal D. Barnard, M.D., FACC, New York Times bestselling author, adjunct associate professor of medicine at George Washington University, and president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
“Dr. Fuhrman lays out how a healthy diet can not only be cheaper and safer than pills and procedures for heart disease and high blood pressure but also, critically, more effective.”—Michael Greger, M.D., FACLM, founder of NutritionFacts.org and New York Times bestselling author of How Not to Die
“Lifestyle medicine is the most important and fastest-growing trend in health care today. In this important book, Dr. Joel Fuhrman describes why.”—Dean Ornish, M.D., founder and president of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute, clinical professor of medicine at UCSF, and New York Times bestselling author

Issues: page 12 of EOHD asks any doctors, researchers, etc., who find conflicting information or evidence to contact Dr. Fuhrman. Fast forward and Dr. Fuhrman notes, on page 188, there has not been any diet with 'animal proteins' that has been proven to reverse heart (vascular) disease (CVD). Not true...Dr. K Lance Gould has multiple publications objectively demonstrating through PET scans the reversal of CVD through a diet which includes animal proteins. Gould worked with Dean Ornish on the very early cutting edge reversal of CVD through non-invasive measures, but, as he writes in his book felt Ornish's approach was too high in starchy carbs and felt vegetables, lean proteins and fruits (in that order) should be the lead foods for heart patients. In fact, one of Gould's early patients--Al Weatherhead--passed away only a few years ago after being given a death sentence in the 80s.
Dr. William Davis has published, in PubMed, research showing his diet, which includes animal protein, the reversal of CVD _AND_ coronary calcification. In his book, Track Your Plaque, and, website Curereality, Davis also cites patients who have reversed their calcium score from the thousands to the hundreds. (As a side note, a cardiologist in Dallas, TX, in the 1990s, was sending his patients to a nutritionist, Cliff Sheats. The MD noted his patients had seen 100% reversal of CVD via Sheats' diet.)
Third, Dr. Fuhrman advises against (or limiting) potatoes, however, they're included in Dr. Esselstyn's diet--which is advocated by Dr. Joel Kahn (a cardiologist and reviewer of Dr. Fuhrman's book. So, which is it...potato? Or no. And, I'm not aware of rampant levels of heart disease in societies where potatoes are a prime part of their diet? Even in the section on Dr. Esselstyn's diet, he doesn't fully address this.
Fourth, Dr. Fuhrman works or appears with Dr. Mark Hyman who wrote Eat Fat, Get Thin. Hyman advocates moderate/low amounts of animal proteins, Saturated Fats, etc. Again, confusing since their approaches are opposite.
Will continue to read the book, and, try to reach Dr. Fuhrman to provide the references regarding Gould and Davis.
