Coronary disease could be prevented, arrested, or even reversed by maintaining total serum cholesterol levels below 150 mg/dL. (Dean Ornish also showed that CVD can be reversed. ) "This is the longest study of minimal fat nutrition used in combination with cholesterol-lowering drugs conducted to date, and our finding of a mean decrease of arterial stenosis [blockage] of 7.0% is greater than any reports in previous research."
