By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Heart Disease Weekly -- In response to a just released doctors' report urging wider use of cholesterol drugs called "statins," one of the nation's top heart specialists says there are far safer, highly effective and proven alternatives for preventing heart disease.

Dennis Goodman, M.D., Board Certified Cardiologist and Lipidologist (and previously on the board of the regional chapters of the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology, the two organizations that issued the recent report), says that statins have their place and do work, but when it comes to prevention, magnesium may be a better prescription.

"Magnesium is one of the most overlooked, underused answers to heart disease," says Dr. Goodman, who just wrote Magnificent Magnesium: Your Essential Key to a Healthy Heart and More due to be released this January 1. "I prefer to focus on lifestyle changes including healthy nutrition, exercise and stress management and to recommend magnesium rather than prescribing a statin."

In his book, Dr. Goodman says that by taking steps to avoid or rectify magnesium deficiency, which affects nearly 80 percent of Americans, doctors and their patients can help stop heart disease before it even starts.

"Deprived of magnesium, your heart cannot produce enough energy; without energy, your heart, arteries, and veins quickly begin to deteriorate, leading to heart cell death," Dr. Goodman writes. "Both directly and indirectly, magnesium deficiency may be at the very core of heart disease. Simply put, magnesium is one of the most essential nutrients for promoting and maintaining proper heart function."
