Overview

In plain language, this book describes the unmasking of an infectious spark for coronary artery disease, along with tests for detecting it and a drug combination that gradually gets rid of it.
For years doctors have been mystified by heart disease symptoms that suggest the presence of an infection. Each time they treat what seems to be a viral or bacterial cause, the condition continues. Now, after more than a century and vast sums spent on seeking a contagious cause, a big part of the code has been cracked; not just by famous research institutions, but by scientists in Finland who found the trigger, and a Florida practitioner who developed a drug therapy for it. Researchers from around the world are replicating the discoveries and a clinical trial of the treatment has been completed.
Yet while the pathogen has been isolated and the treatment seems to get rid of this heart disease "trigger", other scientists claim that it doesn't exist.
The controversy centers on a phenomenon known as "calcification".
If calcification were defined as a disease, then it would be the most widespread illness on Earth. It is found in arteries, kidney stones, cataracts, gum disease, and arthritis. Yet most patients have never heard the term applied to their conditions. This is because while doctors know calcification well, they have not been able to solve the question: Why do we calcify?
The spark for calcification may be the smallest, most ancient organism; one that challenges the very definition of life. Its discovery has scientists arguing over its existence, while paradoxically patients who have been treated for it are improving. Find out why in "Has Heart Disease Been Cured?"
