    Great supplement protocols, for improving cardiovascular health. Great info, on all risk factors not just "traditional". Still stuck on the antiquated notion that saturated fat increases risk, which there is little evidence for if one avoids refined, high glycemic load, nutrient striped carbohydrates . The exercise program lacks individualization, which is to be expected with a general book written to the masses.

The exercise program lacks individualization, which is to be expected with a general book written to the masses. Despite this limitation the exercise program is better than the vast majority of those recommended for cardiovascular health, written by so called experts. It correctly emphasizes higher intensity, metabolically demanding, anaerobic exercise over the traditional recommendation of steady state aerobics.

    I liked this book and would recommend it. It is well written and easy to understand. Houston does an excellent job describing the funtion of the arteries and arterial health. Included are a lot of practical ideas for improving arterial health.

    A totally different perspective on heart disease. Cholesterol is not the villain, and statins are not the cure. He also includes tests that you may want to pursue privately.

    Most interesting passage, to me at least, was where Dr. Houston suggests exercise is not about burning calories. That is simply a side effect. The real story is about hormones and how different exercises affect these hormones. Short answer: running for an hour is bad and lifting weights, particularly full body participation is very good. Further, in order to burn fat, you must build muscle. Can't build muscle (and in fact you burn muscle) doing long, steady cardio.

    Very through and in easy to understand terms. Appreciate that key factors are often repeated in different sections; including multiple appendixes.
