To potentially reverse cardiovascular disease it is best to start with the science. Over the years scientific studies have continued to validate the notion that a whole foods plant-based diet is best for patients with cardiovascular disease. But the goal is not only to reverse cardiovascular disease but to avoid the risk of developing cardiovascular disease all together. The case has never been stronger for the adoption of a whole foods plant-based diet.
This diet has been shown to reverse atherosclerotic plaque progression and open up blood vessels. Our diets have a greater impact on our health outcomes than we may have previously been lead to believe and our bodies have the miraculous ability to heal, if we just give them the chance. But to begin the healing process it is best to adopt a whole foods plant-based diet which consists of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, beans, peas, and legumes and limited amounts of nuts and seeds, the diet contains no animal products (meat, dairy, fish, eggs, poultry) and limited amounts of processed foods and no oils, or tropical oils such as coconut, palm, and palm kernel oil.
The following material is meant to provide information about the science behind the connection between cardiovascular disease, cholesterol, saturated fat, and trans fat, and how these macronutrients in animal products, processed foods, and tropical oils increase LDL cholesterol levels thus increasing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
