Now there are "nano" bacteria

Here's a great article on how to prevent and treat heart disease and numerous other health problems due to infection by nanobacteria.

The chelation (pronounced key-lation, I believe) stuff seems a bit extreme and I'd prefer to see more mainstream physicians prescribing this before I'd be up for that, but many of the other recommendations seem sound, especially those relating to the consumption of whole uncooked foods in the diet and the exclusion of highly processed, high sugar and carb foods.

Got interested in this after hearing an interview with the author of "The Calcium Bomb" on the latest Tech Nation program on NPR. The nanobacteria (a misnomer, it turns out) cause calcification in the body, which can lead to the hardening of arteries and other health problems.
