Here in the USA a heart study was conducted by Dr. Dean Ornish
in California, USA where patients with severe chest pain (angina)
were put on a program to reverse the heart disease. The regimen
reducing fat intake to 16 gms per day
****ONE HOUR OF YOGA OR MEDITATION PER DAY****
All the patients except one man showed reversal of the heart disease
at the end of the study. The one man died due to his unwillingness to
follow the regimen that was required by the study.
It appears that the wisdom in Hinduism is finally being discovered
by the "scientific" community.
