Overview

Everybody wants to avoid obesity, hypertension, and most of all, heart disease. This is the reason for the numerous diets and self-help books that are constantly being thrown at Americans. So why does it seem like our efforts to become healthier are largely unsuccessful?

In Recipe for a Heart Attack: The Body’s Perfect Storm, Elliot Brown, M.D., F.A.C.C., takes a peek underneath the radar to find out the true cause of heart disease, the number-one cause of death in America.

In this book, you will find out why free-range beef is better for you than your average cow, how your nasty boss affects your heart health, and what poetry and painting have to do with coronary disease. Recipe for a Heart Attack explores the deep-rooted relationship between psychological and physiological health, giving the reader both specific advice and a much broader view of wellbeing than most doctors or patients usually consider.
