12 Million Americans Don’t Know the Truth:
They Suffer From the Same Disease
that Killed Mr. Spock From ‘Star Trek’
Could YOU Be One of Them?
Heart disease and cancer need no introduction.
We know they kill ruthlessly, leaving destruction and death in their wake. Our familiarity with these diseases is not surprising. After all, they are the first and second leading causes of death for Americans.
But what about America’s third leading cause of death? If you are like most people, you probably don’t know what it is . . .
Even though it takes another victim’s life every
This ruthless killer doesn’t care who you are. It doesn’t care if you’re rich or famous, an avid jogger or a couch potato. It can take you down whether you’ve smoked all your life or you’ve never touched a cigarette.
It’s a cold-blooded assassin that starts to affect your breathing, slowly takes control of your heart, and eventually destroys your body to the point of no return.
The beloved actor Leonard Nimoy — Mr. Spock from “Star Trek” — wasn’t immune to this deadly disorder. In fact, it recently claimed his life.
Even in the late stages of his battle for survival, he continued to warn his fans about this disease.
Taking to the social networking site Twitter, he alerted his 1.2 million fans to its dangers, encouraging them to take early action — before too much damage was done.
And yes — for Nimoy, it was too late. The disorder went unnoticed in its earlier stages, just as it does with millions of people. The damage to his lungs and heart continued to progress until it took his life.
Although Nimoy quit smoking 30 years prior to the diagnosis of this disease, cigarettes did play a part in his ultimate fate. However, the disease also strikes non-smokers — even those who have never smoked.
Sadly, Leonard Nimoy was just one of the millions of Americans who succumb to this little-known disease each year. Yet, with early detection — and one simple step you’ll discover today — you can avoid becoming another fatal statistic.
How do you know if you are at risk for this disease?
Right now, about 24 million people in our country suffer from it. While people are usually diagnosed in their 50s and 60s, it can affect those in their 40s and rarely, those even younger than that.
But what makes it worse (and even more frightening) is this:
Only around 50% have been formally diagnosed.
So while some 24 million Americans live with it right now — 12 million of them don’t even know it.
That’s because they unwittingly dismiss the early, and often mild, symptoms. They may even dismiss them as normal signs of aging.
Here are just a few of the symptoms you should not ignore:
Ever wake up in the morning, and feel like you’re too tired to face the day? Or hit the wall by lunchtime and want to lie down and take a nap? Well, that lack of energy could be a warning sign of this silent killer . . .
Ever feel like you’re short of breath even with routine activities, such as walking or doing chores? Perhaps you feel like you just don’t have the endurance you used to have — or you think you’re just out of shape. This could be a huge red flag . . .
COLDS OR FLU
Ever feel like you keep coming down with respiratory bugs — or that your friends and family recover from colds and flu faster than you do? This could be a warning sign that something’s not right, especially if you have a lasting “tight chest” feeling.
Ever wonder why you have such a pesky cough? This could be a dry cough — or produce lots and lots of mucus. And it doesn’t matter if you’re a smoker or not — or whether you currently have a cold or not.
Please don’t be fooled and mistake these signs as merely “getting older” or being “out of shape.”
The irreversible damage coursing through your body could cut your life short.
Since the disease is progressive, the destruction continues to build with time — until it becomes too late to stop it.
So what is this quiet killer claiming so many lives?
It’s chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Dr. Chauncey Crandall
This disease taxes your lungs and airways so insidiously that it destroys the very thing that connects you to life — your ability to breathe.
As your lungs fight to get the oxygen they need, this chronic disease puts excessive stress on your heart.
It eventually breaks down your entire respiratory and cardiovascular system.
I know all of this bad news can seem overwhelming, but don’t throw in the towel. There is a silver lining . . .
Renowned cardiologist Chauncey Crandall has a mission to end the unnecessary deaths caused by medical conditions that could have been avoided, managed, or even reversed.
Known to many as the “Christian physician,” Dr. Crandall has been heralded for his values and message of hope to all of his patients.
Unfortunately, he can only fit so many patients into his packed medical practice. So he uses his monthly Heart Health Report to reach more folks with his special life-saving tips on topics that affect your body’s most critical organ.
Dr. Crandall received his postgraduate training at Yale University School of Medicine and has authored best-selling books on heart health.
He also has an intimate understanding of something not many cardiologists do: He knows personally what it’s like to survive a heart attack.
At 48, he nearly lost his life due to a “widow maker” blockage of an artery in his heart. But more on his story later.
In a recent Special Report, Dr. Crandall wrote to warn his readers about the dangers of COPD. And I’m going to tell you how to get your hands on a FREE copy of this Report, which is a $9.95 value.
Dr. Crandall will tell you that early diagnosis and treatment of COPD can prevent severe damage, preserve lung function, and save your heart from this often fatal disease.
Diagnosis is very easy (you’ll see how to do it shortly), so there’s no need to live with this potential death threat.
Plus, we’ve reserved for you not one, but two Free Gifts that are part of a special offer available only to readers of this letter.
What exactly is COPD?
Well, COPD includes the lung diseases emphysema and chronic bronchitis, and is often a combination of the two.
The progressive disorder flies under the radar for years, mainly because symptoms are so mild in the beginning.
Although it’s more common to get COPD if you’re a former smoker, do not make the mistake of ruling it out if you’ve never had a cigarette — or haven’t smoked in years.
In the Special Report, you’ll find a number of risk factors for COPD (in addition to smoking). You might be surprised to find that you have at least two of them, if not more . . .
But for now, what exactly happens to your lungs with COPD?
As your lungs become damaged, less air flows in and out of the airways because of one or more of the following:
The airways and tiny air sacs lose their elasticity
Much like a tired, deflated balloon, the air sacs hang loosely in the lungs and don’t fill up completely when you inhale.
The walls between the air sacs become damaged or destroyed
This damage causes fewer and larger air sacs, reducing the ability of your lungs to perform gas exchange. Each breath poses a bigger strain on the lungs and heart.
The walls of the airways become thick and inflamed
Just as it’s tough to swallow with a swollen throat, when your airways thicken or become inflamed, there’s less room for oxygen to flow.
The airways make more mucus than usual, which clogs them
While your body tries to heal itself from damage to the heart and lungs, the airways begin to overcompensate by overproducing mucus. This makes it more difficult for you to breathe.
With any or all of these problems, your entire respiratory system suffers. And while the damage starts in the lungs, it soon affects your heart’s functioning as well.
While Dr. Chauncey Crandall cannot reach everyone from his Florida cardiology practice, he has found another way to reach out to the public. In his monthly Heart Health Report, Dr. Crandall has helped countless people get their health on track by covering life-saving topics that aren’t typically discussed in any other publication.
He has an unmatched talent for translating medical studies into everyday English for his Heart Health Report readers — a subscriber list that has climbed well into the thousands.
Read what some of his readers say . . .
“I have followed a great deal of Dr. Crandall’s recommendations, from supplementation to diet and exercise. I’m coming up on the fourth anniversary of my ‘come to Jesus moment’ and am now in the best shape I’ve been in in over 20 years. My doctor won’t allow me to eliminate my meds, but has reduced my dosages, as my numbers (BP, HDL, LDL) are superior.” — Jeff in California
“I very much appreciate Dr. Crandall’s letter. He is thorough and concise and has answers that my cardiologist doesn’t have time to answer . . . I am beyond grateful to Dr. Crandall for making me feel so much better and my children are grateful too, to have less worry about their Mom.” — Molly in Alabama

But first, let’s get back to COPD and its heart/lung connection.
The heart and lungs have a very close relationship. They work together to deliver oxygen to, and remove carbon dioxide from, your body’s tissues.
The average person takes about 24,000 breaths every single day. So this relationship had better be a good one.
If the lungs scramble for oxygen needed for the heart, this sets off a vicious cycle of devastation. If the necessary oxygen isn’t going from your lungs to your heart, which feeds every cell and organ, then your body will continue to decline.
Let’s take a closer look for a minute . . .
When you inhale, oxygen travels down into your lungs through smaller and smaller tubes, eventually ending up in little air sacs called alveoli. The walls of the alveoli are very thin, allowing oxygen to pass from them into your bloodstream.
This oxygenated blood travels through the pulmonary veins to the left side of your heart, where it is pumped throughout your body.
After giving up its oxygen, this deoxygenated blood then returns to the right side of your heart and is pumped through the pulmonary arteries to your lungs.
When you exhale, carbon dioxide exits your body and the cycle starts again.
But with COPD, this process becomes disturbed. Low oxygen levels in the small airways cause the low pressure in your arteries to rise.
When the pressure reaches a high level, a condition called secondary pulmonary hypertension develops. It’s called “secondary” because the high blood pressure was caused by another condition, in this case, COPD.
With this problem, the right side of your heart must work too hard to push blood through the pulmonary arteries into the lungs, making breathing a challenge.
Over time, the heart’s right ventricle becomes thick and enlarged. The heart’s pumping action weakens, and eventually this leads to heart failure.
I’m sure you realize that breathing is the key to your very survival. When your ability to breathe is disrupted by COPD, life becomes changed forever. There is no cure for COPD.
Fortunately, prompt medical treatment and monitoring can slow its progression and decrease the possibility of heart damage.
Which brings me back to the renowned Dr. Chauncey Crandall and his story.
Dr. Crandall is the director of preventive medicine at the prominent Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic and is the chief of interventional cardiology at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Palm Beach, Florida.
He knows firsthand how life as you know it can turn on a dime, because he’s been on both sides of the operating table — as an expert physician and a terrified patient.
With no family history of cardiovascular disease, and in the prime of his life, Dr. Crandall faced the possibility of death at just 48 years old.
After a speaking engagement in 2002, Dr. Crandall began to experience severe pain in his shoulder before hopping a plane home to Palm Beach.
Although the pain was sharp, he didn’t think much of it — he was barely middle-aged, didn’t smoke, and wasn’t diabetic.
Upon returning home, Dr. Crandall left his house to go on a walk with his wife, Deborah, but he never made it out of the driveway.
When he doubled over in excruciating pain, Deborah rushed him to the emergency room.
What he discovered was shocking to the prominent cardiologist. He had a “widow-maker” blockage in his main coronary artery — the most dangerous blockage you can have (it often leads to sudden death).
His coronary artery was 99 percent blocked! Had he gone any further on that walk, he would surely have died.
After a full recovery, Dr. Crandall set out with an even more focused mission.
Between his clinical experience and his boundless religious faith, he has gone on to save the lives of thousands by helping them make minor changes in lifestyle with major benefits for heart health.
His unique perspective as both doctor and patient helps him empathize with the difficulties in making a transition from years of bad habits to a heart-healthy way of life.

Dr. Crandall shares high-level medical information with readers like you (in plain English), to help you learn about under-discussed topics — like COPD.
Not sure if a hot medical topic is all hype? Dr. Crandall covers common myths and solid facts on a host of medical topics.
And speaking of myths: There are a lot of them surrounding COPD, mainly because it’s so little-known.
COPD is not a common disease
By now you know that COPD is, in fact, a very common disease. As you saw previously, millions suffer from COPD, yet half of them — about 12 million — are living in the dark.
COPD is not that dangerous
This disease is extremely dangerous and affects men and women in different ways. Dr. Crandall explains this on page 3 of his Special Report.
You’ll see that, while men are seven times more likely than women to be diagnosed with the disease, women are more likely to die from it. Plus, having COPD puts you at greater risk for heartbeat irregularities and stroke.
Only smokers get COPD
While it’s more common for current or past smokers to get this disease, it should never be overlooked by people who have never smoked.
The environmental pollutants we are exposed to daily account for over 30% of COPD cases in nonsmokers. Others who are at higher risk for COPD include those with a certain genetic mutation and those who had asthma as children.
In Dr. Crandall’s Special Report, you will see how those who carry excess fat around the belly also increase their risk for developing COPD. Another good reason to lose that extra weight!
People with COPD can no longer exercise
Quite the opposite is true: Maintaining activity helps to minimize damage to your heart and lungs.
On page 7 of his Special Report, Dr. Crandall covers the right exercise. You’ll discover how to safely ease into activities should you find you are one of the millions with COPD. Plus, you’ll find out about a treatment option that can increase your ability to exercise and sense of well-being.
While COPD is not curable, it is preventable — and treatable.
There are millions of people with COPD currently living normal lives with proper care and treatment. And with a formal diagnosis, the power of education, and fast action, the disease can be minimized.
And here’s the thing . . .
You can educate yourself right now with zero risk. And remember, with your trial subscription to Dr. Crandall’s monthly newsletter, you will also gain instant access to the entire online collection of Heart Health Report (currently housing over 60 issues).
