The Blood Thinner Cure

Kenneth R. Kensey. McGraw-Hill Companies, $14.95 (185pp) ISBN 978-0-8092-9841-9

Despite its unfortunate title, The Blood Thinner Cure: A Seven-Step Lifestyle Plan for Stopping Heart Disease and Stroke by cardiologist Kenneth R. Kensey with Carol A. Turkington offers a long-term antidote to the unhealthy, fast-food diet that contributes to heart disease, the nation's biggest killer. Compassionately and carefully explained, Kensey's program, which is based on the premise that cardiovascular disease need not be inevitable, entails giving blood regularly, taking an aspirin every day, not smoking, drinking lots of water, maintaining a healthy diet, exercising regularly and de-stressing.
