No Rx Required!Six months before his death 18 years ago, a 93-year-old genius gave mankind an incredible gift -- a simple, low-cost way to reverse, even cure, heart disease.To keep it in the public domain, he and an associate registered U.S. Patent #5278189 so that pharmaceutical companies could not control it. Instead, he was made out to be an old fool.A desperate heart patient -- allergic to all statin drugs -- decided three years ago he had nothing to lose, and opted to try it. I am that patient, and after an invasive angiogram procedure conducted July 27, 2011, an expert cardiologist reported my heart to be "free of obstructive disease."As you read this book you will learn:• Coronary Artery Disease can be reversed, cured and prevented• Cholesterol level is unrelated to heart disease• Statin drugs do not reduce death rates due to heart disease• Side effects of statin drugs are far more common than is being reported, and include permanent muscle damage, brain damage, loss of memory, and moreImagine the lives that can be extended, the suffering that can be prevented, when more people learn there already exists a safe and inexpensive cure for coronary artery disease. This book is for them, and YOU.

    If you find yourself lost and alone in the skin-care aisle; if you're thinking of going under the knife, but hoping you won't have to; if you need specific, detailed information about how to get rid of the bags under your eyes or those ever-deepening furrows in your brow; if you've gone to your girlfriends, women's magazines, cosmetics counters, facialists, and plastic surgeons and gotten lots of conflicting answers; then Dr. Fredric Brandt's simple, streamlined system is for you. With 10 Minutes/10 Years, one of the world's most famous cosmetic dermatologists offers a breakthrough skin-care program that will take you only ten minutes a day -- and will reverse your skin's aging process by ten years. There is a skin-care revolution taking place; the days of washing your face with soap and water and slapping on some cream are long gone. But this means that skin care isn't simple anymore. As new products appear, seemingly overnight, it becomes harder to know what's right for your skin. With warmth and humor, Dr. Brandt cuts through the information overload to provide concrete information and advice for women of all ages and of every skin type. He helps you determine who to go to and who not to go to as well as what to ask. 10 Minutes/10 Years is a uniquely formatted, problem/solution-driven guidebook that reveals many unknown threats to the skin which age it before its time, such as sugar and diet (Chapter 3). Need to know about the brown spots on your cheeks? Turn to Chapter 6. Sick of your drooping chin? Read Chapter 14. Driven to despair by your thinning hair? Look at Chapter 19. But before you decide what system you need, consult Chapter 4 for a comprehensive list of the best products, treatments, and procedures available. Dr. Brandt explains what they are and how they work -- from the least invasive, over-the-counter creams to the most cutting-edge injectibles. Once you understand the basics, you can move on to your specific area of concern in the book's final section, which offers precise information for every skin type. There is no one-shot solution -- we are constantly aging, and we have to keep maintaining ourselves. 10 Minutes/10 Years is Dr. Brandt's targeted approach to this maintenance. His system has already helped thousands of people look younger, and now readers will have their own one-way ticket back to a youthful appearance.
