How can I prevent calcium and plaque build up in veins arteries ?

How can I prevent calcium and plaque buildup in veins arteries? Exercise, I know, is a key factor. Are there any foods that can help stop or reduce this kind of blockage?

yes, hot peppers. Cayenne peppers are great, but Habanaro peppers are the best. However, there is a great food supplement that you can research for your self www.x-tremejuice.com they have a product that heals the body from the inside out. Either way, it is good to eat right. Here is what you can do, heat up a cup of water, put 1/8 teaspoon of Cayenne pepper, stir and drink it 3 times a day. Or get this juice and take 1 oz 3 times a day.

HI, I have genetic high cholesterol and a heart scan about 10 years ago saw some plaque build up in my coronary arteries with a calcium score in the 40 s. My question is that I ve been seeing some swelling in my left leg, puffiness around the foot, ankle and calf. No pain, only swelling. Could these 2 events be related?

Hi,
I am a seventeen year-old female with a family history of colon cancer, diabetes, and varicose veins. Great start, I know.
Anyway, I play sports actively and eat quite well, weighing in at 58kg. Problem is, I've had diarrhoea for a few days now, but it's not severe - it's like my colon is down-sizing. I've also been experiencing stomach cramps, and as of this morning my stools have been red/maroon in color. I went to the bathroom just now and the maroon color was consistently distributed throughout the stool. I am very worried about what this could be, and regarding my family history am convinced I should visit a doctor. Could you give me any advice about what this could be? I've researched stool samples and colon cancer as well as hemorrhoids, and have not eaten any foods that have a red coloring in days, but I'm still unsure about the cause.
