My attention has been drawn of late to an Irish Charity that is blazing the way in effective identification of GENUINE at-risk people for CVD. They have produced a most excellent documentary, and ignited my interest in the diagnostic sphere: http://ihda.ie/the-documentary/
I have generally focused on the root cause aspects of CVD, as being the most fascinating and addressable aspect, but I am always open to informed influence. The instigator of both the documentary and the charity itself, David Bobbett, is a most impressive individual who is possessed of an extraordinary altruistic zeal - and he's on track to change the orthodox approach to Coronary Vascular Disease identification and prevention. Oh, and he's Irish too, which is a major positive factor - but I may be a trifle biased in this regard. And, ahem, Carb restriction although not discussed in the documentary, is a cornerstone of the solution - how could it not be, given the correct science emerging?
I can't recommend this documentary highly enough, and will be exploring this diagnostic aspect of the CVD arena in the near future. There is a full feature-length documentary film on the way, which has won the coveted Mass Impact Award at the 2014 Boston Film Festival. http://www.widowmakerthemovie.com/blog/30th-annual-boston-film-festival/

CAC: the test with the desperately needed specificity has been around for more than 20 years - but now, its time has arrived.....
