  • Short Description

Everyone knows that high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, smoking, stress, and a sedentary lifestyle are risk factors for cardiovascular disease. But few know that an unhealthy environment is also a critical risk factor for heart disease. In this incisive, authoritative, and accessible book, cardiologist Francois Reeves asks such questions as why North America experienced an explosion of cardiovascular disease in the mid-twentieth century, why China is suffering a surge of heart attacks, and why there are more heart attacks during episodes of smog. Reeves not only sheds light on these questions with the latest scientific evidence but also offers tangible solutions that could mean better health for our hearts and our planet.
