The ENDOTHELIUM Association
All heart attacks and most strokes are caused by a sick endothelium
Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., Preventing and Revesing Heart Disease  Penguin Group 2007                               
The author was the a surgeon at the famed Cleveland Clinic. He tells how in 1985 he had some 24 patients
who could no longer benefit from surgery and were quite literally on death door.  His treatment of going on
a vegan diet worked.  Today I think all but one of the original 24 are still living and still functional people.
The book gives a clear idea of the endothelium and heart attacks.  It answers the  questions most people
ask and has many excellent recipes by Ann Esselstyn.
