A cure for heart disease
I take it you mean Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). If there was a solution for the no. one killer in America, don't you think people would be talking about it all the time?
Once you have it, you can slow down or stop progression of coronary artery disease. Although some proclaim they can reverse the disease process, if true it would take too many years to be of practical use. So most treatments are to treat the consequences. Statins can correct your cholesterol, but for atherosclerosis to disappear and with it blockages in your arteries, would take many, many years. Stents and bypass surgery can improve the blood flow, but aslo don't treat the atherosclerosis that causes CAD.
So... the best cure is prevention and you do that with proper diet, plenty of exercise, and living a healthy life style w/o smoking etc.
