A 35-year-old member asked:

When it comes to healthy eating, would already damaged/clogged veins and arteries get better over time?

Complicated question: 1st, veins and arteries behave differently and can't be lumped together. 2nd, vein disease is usually not affected by diet 3rd, artery disease can be made worse with bad eating habits but smoking and diabetes do more damage to your arteries than diet (generally speaking).
