  • NO.The powers that be, will never allow a cure for anything. Sorry. If all the hard work all the way to the 21 century were allowed, we would have cures for everything by now!
  • There already is, is called a healthy life style. Most countries already have this miracle cure. One dat hopefully America will as well.
  • There have been a number of advances in treating heart diseases over the years. There is no single disease called "heart disease" but rather it is an umbrella term for a number of conditions. An example is the treating of serious arrhythmias with drugs. Like most things the best "cure" is prevention, living a healthy lifestyle will greatly reduce the risk however there are some instances when this will not work (Jim Fixx for example). Sadly our bodies are not perfect in any way shape or form so this sort of thing is for now still a major killer.
  • Much of the money put into reducing heart disease is on the prevention side. Healthy diet, not smoking, reducing blood pressure, and the like. Other monies are spent on new treatments and surgical procedures.
  • Don't you think Preventive actions on your part are better than waiting for a cure? A healthy lifestyle will greatly reduce your chances of getting heart disease.
  • 1) There is not just one heart disease, there are many. The one which is responsible for the most death is coronary heart disease: "Heart disease is an umbrella term for a variety for different diseases affecting the heart. As of 2007, it is the leading cause of death in the United States, England, Canada and Wales, killing one person every 34 seconds in the United States alone." "1 Types of heart disease 1.1 Coronary heart disease 1.2 Cardiomyopathy 1.3 Cardiovascular disease 1.4 Ischaemic heart disease 1.5 Heart failure 1.6 Hypertensive heart disease 1.7 Inflammatory heart disease 1.8 Valvular heart disease" "Coronary artery disease is a disease of the artery caused by the accumulation of atheromatous plaques within the walls of the arteries that supply the myocardium. Angina pectoris (chest pain) and myocardial infarction (heart attack) are symptoms of and conditions caused by coronary heart disease. Over 459,000 Americans die of coronary heart disease every year. In the United Kingdom, 101,000 deaths annually are due to coronary heart disease." Source and further information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heart_disease 2) There are many well known possibilities to avoid the development of coronary heart disease, before you get it and also after you have become ill: "Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a condition in which proper circulation of blood and oxygen are not provided to the heart and surrounding tissue. This result is due to a narrowing of the small blood vessels, which normally supply the heart with blood and oxygen. Coronary heart disease, a type of cardiovascular disease, is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. Causes: The typical cause of coronary heart disease is a condition known as atherosclerosis, which takes place with plaque and fatty build up on the artery walls, narrowing the vessels. Risks: Certain conditions are considered to put an individual at greater risk for coronary heart disease. The following are some risk factors: Age (particularly 40+) Diabetes Genetics (heredity) High blood pressure High bad cholesterol (LDL) Increased levels of C-reactive protein, fibrinogen, or homocysteine Lack of sufficient physical activity Low good cholesterol (HDL) Menopause Obesity Smoking" "Treatment: Coronary heart disease treatment methods may include: Angioplasty with stenting Coronary artery bypass surgery Medication Minimally invasive heart surgery Proper diet and exercise Quitting smoking " Source and further information: http://www.heartd.org/coronaryheartdisease.php As a conclusion, if the people at large were following a healthy lifestyle, most of those coronary heart diseases could be avoided. For this reason, a very strong accent is made on prevention. 3) Notice that many physicians have an unhealthy lifestyle themselves and many of them die of coronary heart disease... 4) Heart disease is one of the most important areas of medical research, and it is about impossible to cure if the patient persists in following their risky lifestyle. Moreover, many those medical treatments are expensive. What is the point of making a lot of expensive operations on people who just go on with chain smoking, no exercise and refuse any diet? The general social security system cannot finance this. So it will only be made if the patients pay for it with their own money.
  • yeah its known as get off your fat ass and excersice once in awhile. lazy asses. born and raised american and disgusted at what we are!!!
  • The most common cause of heart disease is arteriosclerosis. There is a cure for it. Look up Dr. Ornish. He has actually proven a reversal of arteriosclerosis through a meditation, exercise, and a vegan diet. He has demonstrated an actual reversal, although it is gradual. The vast majority can avoid heart disease simply if they choose to, and put a little effort into it.
  • We've had a cure, It's called prevention. But for those whom it may be too late, a drug called A-1 Milano holds some promise to clear your arteries of plaque; the only problem is, that it's one of the most difficult chemicals do synthesize thus making it very very expensive. To date only a handful of people have ever received it even though all were successful. http://my.clevelandclinic.org/heart/news/hot/hdlapoa1.aspx http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ApoA-1_Milano
