Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts todays show discussing heart disease. Citing a scientific paper he published in the early 1970's where he states that heart disease is often due to inflammation not high cholesterol levels in the blood. In the paper he also contends that vegans actually have more coronary artery disease because of their diets.

 

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article on the relationship between gum disease and heart disease. In the 1990s doctors started telling patients that gum disease was linked to heart disease. This because doctors found that many patients who had suffered heart attacks or strokes also had gum disease. Now review of over 500 studies addressing this purported connection between the two diseases. Researchers found that gum disease in fact does not cause heart disease although many heart attack and stroke patients have both.
