Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., MD has been associated with the Cleveland Clinic

Reverse Heart Disease, explains, with irrefutable scientific evidence, how
we can end the heart disease epidemic in this country forever by changing
what we eat. In 1991, he organized the first National Conference on the
Elimination of Coronary Artery Disease, and in 1997 he chaired the Summit on
Cholesterol and Coronary Disease. In April 2005, Dr. Esselstyn became the
