and women in the u-s. it accounts for one in four deaths. scientists are searching for ways to save hearts - and lives. paula francis shows us why the newest research has them focusing on the gut. (( )) < (cutting vegetables) ((paula francis)) tricia slimbarski eats right, exercises, and reads as much as she can about healthy living. but it wasn't always this way. tricia slimbarski "food controlled my whole life. i ate a lot of meat and, you know, fried food, burgers, hot dogs." ((paula francis)) after a diagnosis of type-two diabetes, high blood pressure, and six blockages in her heart, tricia knew it was time for a change. tricia slimbarski "i decided i've got to save myself." ((paula francis)) soon - doctors at the cleveland clinic may be able to help people like tricia reduce their risk of heart disease by focusing on bacteria in the gut. stanley hazen, md, phd "inside our intestines, we have bacteria, we call these gut microbes." ((paula francis)) scientists found a specific gut
12:09 pm
linked to heart disease.they created a compound that reduces levels of t-m-a-o and blocks the development of heart disease in mice. stanley hazen, md, phd "i think that's the most exciting aspect of this, we can actually drug the bugs if you will, and treat the host and prevent disease." ((paula francis)) later, researchers discovered their compound is actually a natural product that's also found in olive oil, grapeseed oil, and some vinegars. (tricia cooking) ((paula francis)) that's good news for tricia - who's always looking for ways to improve her heart health. she used to take eight pills a day, but since making dietary changes tricia slimbarski " now, i'm down to two pills a day!"
