If I ever get this condition, someone just please shoot me.
I stopped eating athersclerotogenic meats many years ago when I was a medical student studying this--never missed them one bit--and, despite a STRONG family history of arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease, I have remained free of it by symptom, sign, and countless tests including CAT-scan.
(My mother, father, only sibling, both grandmothers, one grandfather, aunt all died of it.)
(My wife's father and grandmother died of it; she also stopped eating atherosclerotogenic foods; and she has also remained totally free of the consequent diseases.)
One wonders if a similar pathogenesis is behind the apparently soaring allergy to peanuts.
