Cardiovascular Health


A complete guide to the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease.

It sometimes seems that there are no significant discoveries left to be made in the field of cardiovascular medicine. And yet, globally, this is not the case: cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of mortality worldwide. Specialists recommend that we adopt a proactive attitude with respect to disease prevention. Cardiovascular health begins with some good news: by modifying lifestyle habits, it is possible to increase the number of healthy years you enjoy.

Dr. Martin Juneau examines specific case studies from his own extensive clinical practice to explain new issues in heart health, in language accessible to the non-specialist. From the incredible importance of exercise and diet to the unsuspected role of stress and air pollution, the book explains how the heart works, describes coronary bypasses and other rescue operations, takes readers through promising new research, and keeps you informed of the risks and preventative steps you can take to have a keep a happy, healthy heart.
