The Perfect Stress Storm

May 6, 2017

I mentioned Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, and his excellent book, The Great Cholesterol Con in a recent blog. Throughout the book, Kendrick insists that most heart disease stems from stress, and today I’ll give you the details. It does sound a bit flaky but I happen to agree. As Kendrick says “Everyone has always known that stress kills.
