OATS have soluble fibre that help to reduce cholestrol, scours the vessels. (stay away from high processed foods with chemical additives that may give you other problems...for example, Cheerios has "TSP" Tri-Sodium Phosphate in it to keep it crunchy, the same chemical you get from a hardware store or paint store to clean grease off your driveway. If you wonder where your heartburn comes from it could just be from that.) and OLIVE OIL, helps dissolve the deposits of, or remove excessive amounts of bad cholestrol and flax bread or good old fashioned cod liver oil, or halibut liver oil, or salmon. True, the omega fatty acids also help a lot.
