... the heart surgery industry is a fraud. -- Dr Julian Whitaker
The heart surgery industry is booming. According to American Heart Association statistics, in 1995 1,460,000 angiograms (the diagnostic procedure that starts the ball rolling) were performed at an average cost of $10,880 per procedure. This resulted in 573,000 bypass surgeries at $44,820 a shot, and 419,000 angioplasties (the balloon procedure for opening up arteries) at $20,370 each. The total bill for these procedures is over $50 billion a year.
AMERICAN SCIENTISTS SAY THEY INVENTED A CURE FOR HEART DISEASE IN 1991
According to one of the world's most highly regarded scientists , we human beings no longer have to fear premature death or heart attack caused by progressive cardiovascular disease (CVD), undergo heart by-pass surgery or angioplasty, or suffer the chest pain of Angina Pectoris.
The medicinal substances involved are not drugs. The two primary ingredients of the Linus Pauling invention are both required in some daily amount for life itself. The great benefit comes from taking these two completely non-toxic substances in amounts much larger than one normally consumes in the diet.
Linus Pauling did not make this claim lightly, although he made it without fanfare. Pauling waited until after careful experiments at his institute confirmed the Lp(a)/vitamin C connection.
No one in the medical community denies (at least publicly) that the Pauling Therapy works, in theory or in practice. We believe it can prevent the build-up of atheroslcerotic plaque, or even reduce existing plaques in most people in a matter of weeks. If the experience of the past few years with the many so-called "terminal" heart disease patients who contact this web site is any guide, melting plaque is not dangerous.
The Pauling Therapy for Heart Disease (1994)
The story of the century? "If you are at risk of heart disease, or if there is a history of heart disease in your family, if your father or other members of the family died of a heart attack or stroke or whatever, or if you have a mild heart attack yourself then you had better be taking vitamin C and Lysine." --Dr Linus Pauling, 1994 interview.
The Pauling Therapy consists of two substances that inhibit the binding of lipoprotein(a). Pauling's specific treatment recommendation for the lipoprotein(a) problem is as follows:
Agent 1: Vitamin C (3-6 gm)
Agent 2: L-Lysine (3-6 gm)
Both ingredients are required in the daily diet for life itself. Neither has any known toxic dose. These amounts Pauling recommended are needed to increase blood serum levels to therapeutic levels.
PAULING SAYS WE CAN REVERSE HEART DISEASE WITHOUT SURGERY
In 1986, the late American scientist, two time Nobel prize winner, and humanitarian, Linus Pauling wrote:
"Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent by the National Institutes of Health, the American Heart Association, and other agencies in support of studies of cardiovascular disease in relation to LDL and HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, saturated fats, and unsaturated fats. Very little attention has been paid to vitamin C and other vitamins. I think that these agencies have been betting on the wrong horse.
"It is fortunate that vitamin C is not a drug it is an orthomolecular substance, normally present in the human body and required for life, and it has extremely low toxicity. You do not need to have a physician's prescription or the approval of the medical establishment to use it in the best way to improve your health and to prevent heart disease. Your knowledge may even be greater and your judgment better than theirs." [Pauling, How to Live Longer and Feel Better, 1986]
Eight years later, in 1994 after experiments at the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine, Pauling announced that in his opinion:
THERE IS A CURE FOR OCCLUSIVE CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE, aka HEART DISEASE
It is now well established that lipoprotein(a) cholesterol, or Lp(a) for short, binds to the Lysine Binding Site (LBS). Linus Pauling explained:
"Knowing that lysyl residues are what causes lipoprotein(a) to get stuck to the wall of the artery and form atherosclerotic plaques, any physical chemist would say at once that the thing to do is prevent that by putting the amino acid lysine in the blood to a greater extent than it is normally. You need lysine to be alive, it is essential, you have to get about 1 gram a day to keep in protein balance, but you can take lysine, pure lysine, a perfectly non toxic substance in food , as pills, which puts extra lysine molecules in the blood. They enter into competition with the lysyl residues on the wall of arteries and accordingly count to prevent Lp(a) from being deposited, or even will work to pull it loose and destroy atherosclerotic plaques [Linus Pauling, JON, Aug 1994]."
This information, so far, has been ignored by the medical journals and national media.
During the last few years of his life, Pauling lectured on this monumental development. His words, published in 1994, bear repeating. After crucial animal experiments were conducted at his institute, he stated unequivocally:
Now I've got to the point where I think we can get almost complete control of cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes. The proper use of vitamin C and lysine can prevent cardiovascular disease and even CURE it." --Dr Linus Pauling, 1994 Interview

The millions of people told that they needed immediate surgery to save their lives actually had a 98.4% chance of surviving without surgery! [According to the CASE study published by the New England Journal of Med., 1983] -- Dr Julian Whitaker
There is no scientific justification for the use of angiography, balloon angioplasty and bypass surgery to treat most cardiovascular disease. Several studies over the past two decades, involving over 6,000 patients with heart disease, have shown that patients funneled into surgical procedures to do significantly worse than those treated with noninvasive techniques. “Noninvasive” refers to the use of medication, not diet, exercise and multiple vitamin supplements, which can be quite beneficial.”
"Other than their cost, the only thing definitely known about these procedures is that they do kill people. Roughly one in 25 patients having a bypass and about one in 65 undergoing angioplasty die from the procedure. Frankly, if we took all of the bypass surgeons and catheter-pushing cardiologists, tied their thumbs together and locked them in a closet, we would save close to 30,000 lives and over $50 billion every year." --Julian Whitaker, Health & Healing, Sep 98, Vol 8, No. 9.
SYMPTOM RELIEF IN 24 WEEKS
People with severe heart disease who have adopted the therapeutic program (as described on the Pauling 1 hour video) report relief of their anginapectoris pain in a short period of time, often as little as 2 weeks.
And the improvement in symptoms appears faster if the amino acid proline is added to the Pauling formula. Recently researchers discovered another Lp(a) Binding Site, the Proline Binding Site , analogous to the Lysine Binding Site. Unlike vitamin C and lysine, which humans must get from the diet to live, the human body usually makes its own proline. Apparently, there is a strong proline anti plaque effect in vivo too.
We have verified one recent case where ultrasound estimated a 90% and 50% blockage in the carotid arteries. Surgery confirmed and cleared the 90% blockage. One month later (after the patient adopted Pauling's program) a second surgery on the 50% verified that his carotid arteries had somehow, "miraculously," cleared of the blockage.
Dr. Robert Cathcart, III, MD, reports that he hasn't seen a single case of heart disease develop in patients who didn't already have a bad heart to begin with. Dr. Cathcart has treated over 20,000 patients with high doses of ascorbic acid vitamin C!
