From the Back Cover
A SAFE, EFFECTIVE, AND REVOLUTIONARY PROGRAM FOR LOWERING HOMOCYSTEINE LEVELS AND CUTTING YOUR RISK OF HEART DISEASE
In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Kilmer S. McCully explains what is really behind the epidemic of heart disease. For many years, clogged arteries have been inaccurately viewed as the cause, rather than a symptom of heart disease. Now, McCully shows you how to cut your risk of heart disease by controlling the real culprit, homocysteine. Considered one of the most significant medical breakthroughs in recent years, McCully's findings have been validated by numerous large scale studies. The Heart Revolution:
-- Challenges the long-held assumption that lowering cholesterol is the key to preventing heart disease
-- Explains how eating vitamin B-rich food can control homocysteine levels
-- Lays out a plan with menus for putting more B vitamins in our diet
-- Discusses how food processing and additives compromise our health
-- Explains how costly cholesterol-lowering medicines can actually harm our health
About the Author
Dr. Kilmer McCully was a highly regarded physician at Harvard and the Massachusetts General Hospital until his controversial theories on heart disease cost him his research funding and his job. He continued his work at a VA Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island. At long last, his theories are now widely accepted by the medical and scientific community. His coauthor, daughter, Martha McCully, is the beauty director at Allure magazine.

Dr. McCully discovered the vital role of this molecule in heart disease [now with roles in over 100 diseases] but his insistence that it is NOT cholesterol or fat that cause bad arteries got him fired from and black listed and disgraced by Harvard University, in 1978 -only to be re-offered a professorship 25 years later [he graciously accepted].
Four new studies about homocysteine now appear daily and a Nobel Prize for single handedly discovering, proving and popularizing such toxic player and risk-factor in health should be in the works.. He now shares that life-long body of wisdom with the public. The good news is that ANYONE can lower his/her homocysteine with a high strength multi-B vitamin pill, the only therapy. Easy to read and well edited, this is the FIRST book you should read, and as a bonus, it will make you feel better about cholesterol.
Heh, any heart-health book with a high nutrient but high cholesterol recipe for chicken-liver spread with egg and butter deserves notice. Not only that -McCully was as right then as he is now, it is a lack of micronutrients that is so dangerous, and this includes omega-3 oil and the '"B" healthy' B vitamins.
This book is as vital for your doctor or cardiologist and buying them a copy too may be one of the smartest things you could do. Their life is a hard one with the drug-interests dominating much of the landscape. They should appreciate scientifically sound data about non-toxic non-drug nutritional prevention options, and it is here that Dr. McCully filled in much of the puzzle picture.
I add my voice to the very first reviewer, Dr. Willett, Chair of Harvard's Nutrition Department, in warmly recommending this important yet easy to read book, Eddie Vos Sutton Qc Canada [...] E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
This book should be a 'must have' for any doctor
