Return to Heart Attacks, Cancer and strokes. Preventative approaches
Two years ago I was a 72-year-old overweight, hypertensive male who used to drink and smoke. I had no symptoms, but felt I was a perfect profile for heart and cancer problems. So I got a body and heart scan. And turned up a kidney cancer and heart disease. I was able to save the kidney by finding the tumor early and I have regressed my plaque 32% in 2008.

As someone who has heart disease and has survived both Colon and Kidney Cancer, I have a great interest in preventative approaches to these problems. It's mainly my own fault I have these problems. Twenty years of heavy smoking stopped in '74 and thirty years of heavy drinking stopped in '92. Plus some bad cancer genes on my Mother's side.

I will post info on them that I find of interest and hope others will also. I start with the premise that we all should exercise and lose weight. If you do it, fine. If you don't it's even more important that you do the other things I list. These will help you prolong your life and live better, but the most important thing you can do for yourself is: GET YOUR WEIGHT DOWN TO A BMI OF 25! Here is the BMI scale to let you know where you are and so that you can figure out what you need to do.

Take charge of health yourself. If you wait for your doctor to do it for you, you could be in the same situation as poor Tim Russert. This is an age when your physician should facilitate your success, not prevent it or leave you wallowing in ignorance.

If you have heart disease, the program I follow that "Track your Plaque" recommends is:

First priority is LDL-C less than 60 mg, Triglycerides less than 60 mg, and HDL-C 60 mg. or higher; 25-OH-vitamin D3 of greater than 60 ng/ml. Back to basics: a general program of correcting blood pressure (115s/70s). I STRONGLY recommend you join their site, which will get you their book, and start reading up on your particular problems.

PERSONAL HEALTH: After constant reading of reports and my own personal experience, I have become convinced that the best thing you can do for your and your family's health is add supplemental Vitamin D to your daily intake. 6000IU for men, 5,000 for women, 2000 for children. Have everybody's 24OHD-3 level checked and make sure it is OVER 60. Don't worry about the upper limit, there really is none when taking D-3 softgels. Anything you can read on the Net is testing done on D-2 prescription results, and there is almost nothing there that is negative. My D-3 level is 80, and there is no known negative for that. Over 60 is where all the studies and anecdotal reports show results.

Your Doctor will be negative on this dosage and level, Because he is behind the curve. He will be negative on ordering a blood test. Don't let him stop you. The benefits are just too good. Medical experimenters who work with D are taking 4-8 K of supplemental D-3 when they see the results. Cheapest way to buy it is like this:

Carlson Vitamin D -- 2000 IU - 360 Softgels

I take an 81mg aspirin and ten 30% Fish Oil capsules [3000+EPA/DHAmg] daily plus three 2000IU gel caps of Vitamin D. The D is the best preventative I know of for Cancer. For BP, I take one 50mg Atenolol and one 10mg Lisinopril daily for BP.

For heart disease, I recommend you get a heart scan and track your plaque. I have a 330 score, and take a 20mg Simvastatin daily. I take three 500mg of Slo-Niacin daily. I add two tablespoons each of ground flax seed and oat bran to my morning oatmeal. I have found Costco to be the best source for CoQ10, Fish Oil and Slo-Niacin. Buy Vitamin D from Vita-cost online in 360 IU 2000 capsule bottles. L-Arginine online from Vitamin Shoppe.

TYP recommends adding the following supplements:

# Vitamin C: 500mg per day
# Vitamin B-Complex: (Folic Acid: 800mcg, B6: 25mg, B12: 100-500mcg) per day
# CoQ10 100mg to 300mg daily if you have muscle pain from a statin.
# Add l-arginine 6000 mg twice per day (on empty stomach)
# Consider l-citrulline 1000 mg per day
# Consider a magnesium supplement (e.g. magnesium oxide 250 mg twice per day).
# Add oat bran 2 tbsp per day to your diet.

# Achieve BMI of 25 [body fat 17% male, 20% female] or less through weight loss. This should be regarded as a priority to reduce blood pressure if you begin with a BMI >25.
# Consider increasing exercise to 40 minutes 4 days per week, or use pedometer and increase steps or kcal burned by 50% over your current daily expenditure.
# Ensure that you get at least 7 1/2 hours of sleep every night. Sleep deprivation contributes to high blood pressure.
# Increase intake of monounsaturated oils (olive and canola; raw almonds and walnuts) and cut back sharply on intake of starches. Other than that, eat what you like, but STOP EATING WHEAT, SUGAR AND CORN! If you do, your weight will drop like a stone.
