CT heart scans to generate a coronary calcium score is, by a long stretch, the best and most precise way to gauge risk for heart disease, certainly far better than virtually useless cholesterol values. Even though this technology dates back over 25 years, it is still plagued by misinformation, often used to twist people's arms into taking drugs like statins, and even used to exploit people by putting them unnecessary procedures.
The reality is that a coronary calcium score can be the starting point for an enormous effective heart disease prevention program that does not involve conventional wastes-of-time such as reducing fat, tracking cholesterol, or taking statin drugs. Instead, let's focus on the natural methods that actually address the real causes of coronary disease, coronary calcium, and cardiovascular risk. By doing so, you can be far more knowledgeable than your doctor.
