External Counterpulsation (ECP) a new paradigm for treating heart disease

June 17, 2002

External Counterpulsation (ECP) is an ingenious method for treating angina that doesn’t use drugs, is non-invasive, inexpensive and safe — unlike conventional surgical procedures such as angioplasty and bypass surgery. Physicians should inform patients of all the treatment options available for ischemic heart disease, including FDA-approved ECP, says physician Dr. Grossman.… read more

September 8, 2009

longevity research

Immortality is within our grasp. Most of our conceptions of human life in the 21st century will be turned on their head. Not the least of these is the belief in the inevitability of death. As we succeed in understanding the genome and the proteome, many dramatic advances in treating disease and even reversing aging will emerge. The first two decades of the 21st century will be a golden era of biotechnology.

fantastic voyage

What is the Fantastic Voyage? Written at the height of the Cold War, Isaac Asimov’s 1966 science-fiction thriller Fantastic Voyage shifted the public’s fascination from space travel to an even more fascinating journey-inside the human body. In the novel, scientists on “our side” as well as the unnamed “other side” have developed a miniaturization technology that promises victory for whoever can perfect it first. However, the technology has a fatal flaw: the miniaturization wears off quickly.

Quick-and-Lean Cuisine from the Kurzweil Kitchen

The problem with most cookbooks, of course, is that they reflect the high-fat, high-cholesterol, high-sodium, high-sugar, and low-fiber orientation of the Western diet. Japanese cuisine is far superior in terms of fat and cholesterol content, but is very excessive in sodium. There are a number of excellent cookbooks that comply with the guidelines of the 10% solution, some of which I have included here.

Many of the recipes in the books below meet the 10 percent-fat from calories guideline. Most are also low-sodium and low-sugar. Most of these books also provide nutritional information, including fat, sodium, cholesterol, and calories. Note that not all of the recipes in these books are sufficiently low in fat, so look at the grams of fat in the nutritional analysis that accompanies many of these recipes.

The 10% Solution For A Healthy Life, Chapter 3: The Benefits

March 6, 2002

Heart Disease

So, a diet low in fat, cholesterol, and sodium, plus regular aerobic exercise, produces a dramatic reduction in artery and heart disease. Are there any other benefits?

As a matter of fact, reduction in heart disease risk is just the first in a long list of benefits. I mentioned it first because it is the primary health risk in our society and is by far our biggest killer.

Stroke, Aneurysms, Claudication

In terms of other diseases, consider first the diseases caused by the same atherosclerotic mechanism. When the coup-de-grace event-a blood clot forming on or getting stuck in an advanced atherosclerotic plaque formation-occurs in the coronary arteries, that’s a heart attack. When it happens in the arteries feeding the brain, you have a thrombotic or embolic stroke.
