Dr. Aseem Malhotra is a London-based cardiologist, founding member of the Public Health Collaboration, and an adviser to the National Obesity Forum. A leading voice in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of heart disease, he has dedicated his life to showing people how to achieve true health—not just the kind that comes out of a bottle.

He then lists the type of proactive lifestyle changes that actually work to protect against heart disease and other chronic illness.
