I look forward to reading your new book.
"Extremely well researched, unquestionably persuasive, and a great contribution to the health and well being of the nation."
I couldn't agree more.
A bit of background
We found out my husband's grandfather needed a stent put in this last Halloween. When they went to put in the stent, they found so many blockages that they knew the stent was not the way to go, and they would need to perform open heart surgery. On November 1st, they performed a five-way bypass. The artery known as "the widowmaker" was 99% blocked. From what I understand, it's called the widowmaker because if it becomes abruptly and completely blocked, it will cause a massive heart attack that will likely lead to sudden death.
The day of the surgery
We were really lucky that my husband's grandfather is so active because otherwise, he might not have made it long enough for the surgery to even be an option. I went down to the hospital with my husband and my mother-in-law where we met up with my mother-in-law's brother and his wife. We got to see his grandfather before the surgery. It was a terribly long day - he's eighty-three, never had surgery or been hospitalized before. We worried about him going under the anesthesia, coming off the ventilator, and especially the recovery afterwards.
He is tougher than the doctors expected him to be, and his surgery took less time than they thought it would. He came off the ventilator sooner than they thought, and he was released from the hospital a couple days earlier than they thought. He came to stay with us for a couple of days, and then he stayed with my mother-in-law and her mother (who live across the street from us) until he was released to go home.Read more ›
The clear and precise language of Salt Kills states that, contrary to prevailing assumptions, salt is indeed a killer. Because excess salt causes high blood pressure, it not only is one of the root causes of cardiovascular diseases but also a major contributor to other health problems: asthma, obesity, stomach cancer, osteoporosis, dementia, and Alzheimer's.
The unpretentious language is supported by careful research, as well as an Action Plan and Frequent Questions. The proper response to Dr. Neravetla's book is to treat it as a prescription for more sensible shopping, cooking, and eating--a message of global significance.
