We compared the effects of high-dose versus low-dose losartan on clinical outcomes in patients with heart failure. In men, total cholesterol:HDL and apo B:apo A-1 ratios both improved re-classification of 10-year risk for CHD; however, the difference between the two was not significant. American Heart Association – 2015 Heart Disease and Stroke Update, compiled by AHA, CDC, NIH and other governmental sources Moderate alcohol intake (1 or 2 drinks per day) is associated with a lower risk of myocardial infarction, possibly because of alcohol’s ability to raise the HDL-C level (1 oz/day increases the HDL-C level by a mean of 4 mg/dL) Many studies have been devoted to other potential mediators found in alcoholic beverages, such as polyphenols in red wine.

The truth is that the disease is greatly under-recognized, with perhaps ten million cases worldwide, making it by far the most common "restrictive" heart disease. With modest weight loss and moderate physical activity, people with prediabetes can delay or prevent type 2 diabetes and lower their risk of heart disease and stroke. Many other theories have been proposed to account for the current epidemic in CHD: Chlorine and fluoride added to water; pesticides that mimic human estrogens or that provoke free radical reactions; carbon monoxide fumes; industrial chemicals; artificial lighting; synthetic vitamins; minerals that are toxic or that are consumed in toxic amounts; pasteurization and homogenization of milk; legal and illegal drugs; consumption of coffee and other stimulants; and additives in processed foods.
