The article reports on the application of a new view of heart disease in investing by Palo Alto Investors partners Joon Yun and Patrick Lee. The partners invested some of the $230 million dedicated to health care at Palo Alto Investors, out of a total of $700 million under management. This hedge fund has been around since 198, headed by former investment analyst William Edwards. A recent study by Dutch cardiologists published in the New England Journal of Medicine supports Yun and Lee's belief.
