Great podcast and I'm pleased that somebody in the US isn't advocating the use of aspirin as a preventative measure... here in the UK the evidence is clear - taking aspirin daily has/can have side effects which outweigh the potential benefits.

You can absolutely lower heart disease risk through diet! My mom was able to lower her high cholesterol to "IDEAL level" through eating "the Green Diet". She doesn't have to take medication at all.

Thanks for more great info. It's up to every individual to try and remain healthy. Not just wait for treatment when we get sick.
