Who We Are and Why We're Doing This
49,000 lives could be saved every day, from the damage caused in heart disease.
More than One Trillion dollars is spent every year fighting heart disease. There have been big advances, but not enough to save 49,000 lives that are still lost every day.
As far back as 2004, the first environmental cardiology study signaled that heart health is connected to environmental stress. Yet, standard therapies that target this connection are hard to find.
Most cardiology professionals don't have access to environmental training during medical school. The impacts of noise and low levels of toxic metals on heart health are rarely taught, although chronic noise is one of the leading causes of premature death.
To highlight solutions, the author of The Nature of Longevity is starting an Environmental Health initiative, dedicated to empowering patients and healthcare providers with innovations that reverse the damage from environmental stress. Get in touch to learn more.
