Heart attacks are preventable—fatalities from heart attacks should be virtually unheard of—and heart disease can be controlled, possibly even reversed, says renowned researcher and cardiologist H. Robert Superko, M.D. In his groundbreaking work, Before the Heart Attacks, Dr. Superko for the first time outlines his innovative program to the public, including:

• Information about new blood tests that predict true risk of heart attack.
• Dr. Superko’s Personal Risk Self-Assessment quiz
• Individualized diet and exercise program as well as an assessment of supplements.

The Plume edition includes a new afterword focusing on the latest developments in non-invasive testing, the most recent advanced hormone replacement therapy, genetics, and complementary medicine.
