If found to be effective in subsequent studies, this intervention could have tremendous clinical implications for patients. However, the article left me with many questions and concerns. One of my concerns is that the article was written in a promotional, not scientific, tone. Although no potential conflicts of interest were reported, the lead author has published books on the topic from which he could profit.

In my year Cleveland Clinic nutritional study,  I arrested and reversed advanced coronary artery disease in patients who had already undergone bypasses and angioplasties; some had even been told by their cardiologist that they had less than a year to live. This study builds from epidemiological evidence in plant-based cultures, such as rural China, the Papua Highlanders, central Africa, and the Tarahumara Indians, where the inhabitants are virtually free of coronary disease.
Heart Disease Reversal Program
A autopsy study of young adults in the US between the ages of 17 and 34 years of who died from accidents, suicides, and homicides confirmed that coronary artery disease CAD is ubiquitous in this age group.

The question is, why? Unfortunately, such dietary gestures do not treat the primary cause of CVD.

Based on the groundbreaking results of his year nutritional study—the longest study of its kind ever conducted—this book explains, with irrefutable scientific evidence, how we can end the heart disease epidemic in this country forever by changing what we eat.
