“Our medical care system is broke and the only way to fix it is by teaching Americans how to protect themselves against disease to avoid medical care. Invasive cardiology is a billion dollar industry based on disproven science. Coronary artery disease and heart attacks are avoidable through superior nutrition. Dr. Kahn can lead the way to change the face of cardiology in America.” (Joel Fuhrman, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of Eat to Live, The End of Diabetes and others, Board Certified Family physician, Research Director of the Nutritional Research Foundation)

It is about time that a cardiologist of the caliber of Dr. Kahn writes a book to educate both patients and other doctors how to avoid stenting blocked arteries. The need is there for a well respected and loved cardiologist to enlighten the public in this area. I follow Dr Kahn's work almost daily through his emails, and I hope his book will be published soon so I can direct my readers to his work.” (Alejandro Junger, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of Clean)

Though the real value of the book is in part two, it is part one which helps create a sense of urgency and forces the reader to seriously follow the prescriptions given.
One thing which the book might have done without is talking about brand names of mixers and blenders (chapter 7), simply to avoid any unnecessary perceptions of the author having an interest in these companies.
My personal experience:
The day I read this book, I decided to improve the eating habits of my family. As a start, I offered veg noodle soup to my kids. It was shocking to see the kids making a fuss about the "green stuff" in their soup. Was an eye opener for me.
Post that, we have been following various suggestions in the book and have seen definite improvements in our eating habits, activity level and general well being.
The few things we have adopted in the last 3 months:
A. Stopped getting processed canned food and replaced them with fresh fruits and vegetables.
B. Increased juice intake - carrot, pomegranate, orange are some of our favorite.
C. Cut down on eating out.
D. Started practicing regular yoga. Sun salutation is our favorite. We use "Simply yoga" ios app.
E. Got into the practice of finishing our dinner by 7 pm max. (Kitchen closed after 8 pm).
These steps seem to be working for us. I have read the book cover to cover and keep going back to it when I see my resolve getting diluted.
Thank You Dr Joel. :)
