    The Cheney Syndrome: To a man with a hammer a lot of things look like nails that need pounding. The Importance of Diet and Lifestyle Modification for treatment of Heart disease

    Richard M Fleming*, Matthew R Fleming and Tapan K Chaudhuri

    Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and has been so for several decades affecting an estimated 12 million Americans. This year approximately 1.1 million Americans are expected to have an acute cardiac event with almost 2/3rds of these (650,000) being recurrent cardiac episodes in people already being treated for heart disease; accounting for 1 out of every 3 deaths [1]. This high rate of recurrence clearly illustrates that the problem doesn’t go away following initial medical treatment, interventional procedures and/ or by simply telling people to change their diet and lifestyle; particularly given all the confusion about what is a health diet and lifestyle.
