Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Read and become Heart Attack Proof—the essential guide to achieving immunity from America’s number one killer. And, after you finish the book, pass it on to save even more lives!”

Philip Smith, Editor in Chief, Life Extension Magazine

"What distinguishes Heart Attack Proof from similar works in this field is Dr. Ozner’s ability to translate sound principles of preventive cardiology into simple, practical, sustainable changes that lead readers to a ‘new normal’ way of living. Rather than a program built on rigid dietary restrictions and aggressive ‘no pain, no gain’ exercise recommendations, this book meets individuals where they are and provides step wise options to facilitate successful change."
