The Heart of the Matter
This seminal work on heart disease in the African American community is updated with the latest information on nutrition and dietary guidelines, heart surgery, and medication in this revised edition. As important today as it was when originally published five years ago, this informative guide provides African Americans with the most cutting-edge information on cardiovascular disease, blood lipids, and strokes, the most current and successful medications and therapies on the market, and recent developments in understanding the role that spirituality plays in recovery. Preventative techniques that address the social and cultural dynamics that affect the health of African Americans are discussed, and more than 50 heart-healthy soul food recipes are included to ensure that African Americans get--and stay--on the healthy track.
