“Modern cardiology has failed. Coronary bypass and stenting has been demonstrated in meta-analysis to do almost nothing to extend lifespan and protect against future heart attacks. Now we have evidence to demonstrate heart disease can be prevented and even reversed through nutritional interventions, averting future heart attacks. Dr. Montgomery is the cardiologist leading the charge to a new standard of practice—one that saves lives. Imagine if cardiologists all over America taught their patients about nutritional excellence as a means of treating heart disease? It would save an untold amount of suffering and human tragedy.”
