A man is as old as his arteries
I want to start citing the wkipedia about Cardiovascular Disease:
By the time that heart problems are detected, the underlying cause (atherosclerosis) is usually quite advanced, having progressed for decades. There is therefore increased emphasis on preventing atherosclerosis by modifying risk factors, such as healthy eating, exercise and avoidance of smoking.
Thre is really notign more to say: Primary cause of Cardiovascular Disease is atherosclerosis(Hardening of the Arteries)!
The question of how long we might live were it possible to prevent atherosclerosis remains unanswered.
The disease sooner or later affects everybody. The disease is so insistent and progressive that it is generally considered a manifestation of aging. Death by hearth attack and stroke (consequences of Atherosclerosis) is so common that we view it now as the "natural" end of life.
Prevention and curing:
Linus Pauling's(winner of multiple Nobel Prize) and Matthias Rath's have the Unified Theory of Human Cardiovascular Disease which suggests that atherosclerosis may be reversed and cured.
Pauling and Rath theorised that, although eventually harmful, lipoprotein deposition on artery walls was beneficial to the human species and a "surrogate for ascorbate" in that it kept individuals alive until access to vitamin C allowed arterial damage to be repaired. Atherosclerosis is thus a vitamin-C-deficiency disease.
We should also know that Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant in vessels and inhibits inflammatory process interrupting in this way some basic processes of developing Atherosclerosis.
Coronary heart disease can be reversed! Depending on how long you’ve had it, atherosclerosis reversal is inversely proportionate to that period of time, meaning: the longer you’ve had it the less reversible it is, but it can be stopped, or at least, slightly reversed even in the most aggressive cases.
Vitamin C, Vitamin E, beta-carotene can prevent plaque buildup, allso use Vitamins B6, B12, Biotin, and Folic Acid
