An estimated 70 million Americans-one in five-have elevated levels of a type of cholesterol called lipoprotein(a) which can increase the risk for cardiovascular disease, including blocked arteries, blood clots, and stroke. Cardiologist Joel Kahn explains how this condition is a factor of genetics rather than poor lifestyle choices, and the best ways to test effectively for these levels. He shares research that shows plant-based diets in general provide the best defense against heart attacks, strokes, and cardiovascular disease and can play an important role in protecting individuals with elevated lipoprotein(a) levels. He partnered with vegan expert Beverly Lynn Bennett to provide dozens of delicious heart-healthy recipes.
