"The War In Medicine"
CONTINUED FROM EARLIER POSTWith this statistic in mind, Reader's Digest wrote a book
on heart disease called: Heart Healthy for Life. It was a
book on preventing heart disease, so of course they devoted
one or two chapters to the Linus Pauling prevention program -

or L-Lysine, which are the three main supplements in the
Linus Pauling/Dr. Rath prevention program. Nor did the
study they quoted use any of these supplements. What a
