Why We're Doing This
could be saved from fatal heart disease every day.
More than One Trillion dollars is spent every year fighting this with limited success.
In 2004, the first environmental cardiology study signaled that our heart and environment are connected. Yet, standard therapies that target this connection are hard to find.
Most cardiology professionals don't have access to this kind of training during medical school. For example, 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.
There are solutions. To bring attention to them, the author of The Nature of Longevity is starting a transformative Environmental Health project dedicated to empowering patients and healthcare providers advocating for innovations that have real impacts on reversing environmental damage to our health.
Together with our allies and partners, we're engaging and mobilizing activists and leaders from all backgrounds and walks of life. Get in touch to learn more about our mission and join us today.
