…a very good job of presenting the evidence and opinions…

Behavioral lifestyle, exercise, weight control, diet, and alcohol are the cornerstones of cardiovascular health. Each of these is extremely important to influence positively the quality and longevity of life. In this book, Jerry Facciani does a very good job of presenting the evidence and opinions as to the benefit of each of these issues, and the potential value of using alcohol on long term cardiovascular outcomes. This is a field with lots of comments and opinions and less ‘scientific evidence’ than other medical and surgical treatments. Jerry does a very fair presentation and appropriate documentation of the issues and the benefit of incorporating these into lifestyles that result in better quality, happiness, and outcomes. As I often say to my patients, a glass of red wine and a healthy lifestyle keep the ‘doctor away.’
