Truth About Heart Attacks and Strokes – A Call for Low-Carb Diet From The New York Times

                                         Majid Ali, M.D. Healthy fats prevent heart attacks. So do healthy proteins.

Regrettably, an enormous number people have lost their lives as a result of the grievous error of those who believe the “cholesterol-plaque-plumbing model.” This model is utterly indefensible in light of the known scientific facts of molecular biology of oxygen, cholesterol, and endos (short for endothelial cells that make

The Oxygen Model of Coronary Artery Disease

                                                                            Majid Ali, M.D. My Oxygen Model of Coronary Artery Disease is an extension of my Oxygen Model of Health and Disease. It is a unifying model that explains all aspects of coronary artery disease—causes, clinical course, consequences, and control—on the basis of disturbed oxygen function. The most important among these compromised and/or blocked functions are: (1) oxygen signaling; (2)
