    The Death Knell for Chelation Therapy in Heart Disease

    The Death Knell for Chelation Therapy in Heart Disease

    Welcome to Heart Doc VIP! This week, Dr. Kahn tackles a series of mini-topics including the use of colchicine in treating heart disease, the crucial role of oral health in managing atrial fibrillation, and why beta-blockers may not benefit many heart attack patients.
    Plus, hear Dr. Kahn's thoughts on Valter Longo, Ph.D.'s insights about the "5Ps" that are excessively present in our diets. Also, check out the newly available L-Protein, a plant-based protein, at prolonfmd.com/Drkahn.
    Our main discussion centers on the recent findings from the TACT2 trial, where intravenous chelation therapy in 1,000 heart patients followed over four years failed to improve outcomes. This result is particularly disheartening following the promising TACT trial published in 2013, and it likely signals the end of funded research for chelation therapy.

    Hope everyone enjoyed the Reversing Heart Disease Naturally 2.0 Summit online. Keep an eye out for the upcoming replay weekend!

    The main discussion delves into a common inquiry at the Kahn Center: Do statin medications contribute to dementia? Dr. Kahn examines a meta-analysis revealing that statins actually lower the risk of dementia and Alzheimer's Disease. Additionally, he shares findings from a recent study in Chicago that supports the notion that statins can decrease the risk of memory loss over time, especially in individuals with one or two ApoE4 genes. This comes as reassuring news to many concerned about the implications of carrying the ApoE4 gene.
