St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) October 19, 2004 -
Over 950,000 Americans will die of heart disease in 2004. According to leading heart disease expert Al Sears, M.D., most of these heart disease deaths are preventable, if we ignore the current advice about cholesterol, low-fat diets and long-duration exercise. In his controversial new book, The DoctorÂs Heart Cure, Beyond the Modern Myths of Diet and Exercise: The Clinically-Proven Plan of Breakthrough Health Secrets That Helps You Build a Powerful, Disease-Free Heart http://www.dragondoor.com/b30.html
Dr. Al Sears recommends a radical solution to end AmericaÂs #1 health crisis.
Al Sears, M.D. lays the blame for AmericaÂs heart disease crisis, squarely with the introduction and popularity of the low-fat diet. According to Dr. Sears, the switch to low-fat diets has been responsible not only for an increase in heart disease, but is also largely responsible for a quadrupling in AmericaÂs obesity rates since the 1950s.
We need to turn the traditional Food Pyramid on its head, says Dr. Al Sears, recommending a diet rich in high-quality fats and organic proteins and low in starches. The DoctorÂs Heart Cure goes beyond the Atkins Diet and popular high-protein diets, in its emphasis on the need for organic meats and fats and in its breakthrough advice on the importance of correct exercise for heart health.
Again turning accepted wisdom on its head, Dr Al Sears warns that long-duration aerobic exercise can make our hearts weaker and more vulnerable to heart disease. Long-distance runners, for instance, have the highest incidence of heart attack of all major athletic groups. To build a strong heart, we need to perform short bursts of high-intensity, weight-bearing exercises, for not more than a twenty-minute period.
