The new book, "Hidden Causes of Heart Attack and Stroke," explains how fibrinogen may have silently claimed the lives of many of our parents, grandparents and other family members for generations. "Christian Wilde, you have been visionary in your early (1995) identification of what may well turn out to be the next major breakthrough in stroke and heart attack prevention. After my more than 50 years in the medical profession, you have even opened my eyes" Ronald M. Lawrence, M.D., Ph.D., appointed advisory member to four governmental medical boards including the Institutes of Health. Founder of the American Medical Athletic Asso.
Fibrinogen is now considered to be 30-50% inherited, do you know if you and your family are at risk? In the book's longest but "reader friendly" chapter, Making The Case Against Fibrinogen, author/researcher Christian Wilde offers how this "hidden killer" increases heart attack and stroke risk. In detail, Wilde explains the many causes, including certain popular medications that contribute to high levels. The book explains how to detect and neutralize high fibrinogen. http://www.myheartbook.com
Fibrinogen in one study in the book had shown to increase heart attack risk up to 6 times and another to increase stroke risk by an amazing 12 times when combined with a blood pressure of 180mm. A study among women determined a possible 7 time risk when combined with high LDL. This acute phase reactant was introduced as a risk factor during the famed Framingham heart study in the 50's. Fibrinogen is involved with carotid artery disease, aortic atherosclerosis, calcification and formation of cardiovascular plaque. In more than 90 radio interviews the author has been explaining how stress, inflammation and other "hidden" factors contribute to heart attack and stroke. Read at http://www.myheartbook.com
One reason we haven't heard more about this risk factor, explains Wilde, may be due to the fact that there has never been a known medical cure. The largest chapter in the 408 page, soft cover breakthrough book "Hidden Causes of Heart Attack and Stroke" (inflammation, cardiology's newest frontier) explains more about fibrinogen and it's threat to health as well as countermeasures than the public has ever been presented. The format is easy to read.
