So, does this mean if I take the vaccine I can eat at the Heart Attack Grill (shown above) every day and never worry about dying there? Cool! Woody Alan’s film Sleeper (where it turns out all the bad food is really good for you) may be coming true, with a little help from my friend, the vaccine!
A vaccine delivered in an injection or nasal spray to prevent heart attacks could be available within five years.
Scientists have discovered that the drug stimulates the body’s immune system to produce antibodies which prevent heart disease by stopping fat building up in the arteries.
It is the first time that the underlying cause of heart disease has been targeted. Current treatments focus on using drugs to reduce cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
