Summary, etc.: Dr. Jay Cohn argues that we have been dangerously misinformed about heart disease and suggests that cardiovascular illnesses are largely inherited. He sheds light on the role of diet, obesity, cholesterol, and blood pressure in influencing health, concluding that drugs in at-risk individuals are more effective in prevention than lifestyle changes.
