ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the massive diet fat-heart and coronary drug. It informs that if these programs are allowed to proceed according to their present research designs, and result in unjustified confusions referable to the dietary and pharmacologic treatment or prevention of ischemic heart disease, they will invite serious public health and economic consequences for the nation. It also informs that one relates to a 5-year nationwide study aimed at conclusively establishing the relationship between dietary cholesterol and saturated-unsaturated fat intake, the serum cholesterol-lipid concentrations and the incidence of cardiovascular complications in hypercholestoremic and other high-risk individuals.

    The article focuses on the levels of risk factors associated with heart attacks. In the United States, coronary heart disease (CHD) is the most common cause of death and disability in middle-aged and older men and women. Coronary heart disease blocks the flow of blood through the arteries of the...

    The article presents information related to the use of statins in the treatment of coronary heart disease (CHD). In Great Britain, it is estimated that cholesterol levels greater than 5.2mmol/l are a contributory factor in 46 per cent of CHD deaths. There is overwhelming evidence that statins...
