These 101 scientific papers reveal... ...cholesterol and saturated fat are in fact essential for a healthy heart. ...high cholesterol levels help you live longer. ...high carbohydrate diets promote the factors that cause heart disease. ...margarine is an industrially produced unhealthy product that should be avoided. ...the cholesterol/saturated fat causes heart disease hypothesis has never been proved. This book is based on the research of doctors, professors and scientists and includes 101 scientific papers which are explained in an easy to read user friendly format. This information will enable readers to make informed choices about the prevention of heart disease.
However, I find the book useful because it actually cites the research studies. As a quick reference this is very useful. This allows someone interested in obtaining more information the opportunity to go to the source - for that the book is worthwhile to me.
I was blown away by the evidence contrary to the typical eat-low-fat-for-your-heart medical advice, I especially enjoyed Chapter 5, "Comments by Eminent Professors and Doctors" (leading experts on the subject of cardiovascular disease), the glossary, and Appendix 3 which provided quick summaries of one or two lines of each of the studies.
After my father who was slender and had low cholesterol, died of a heart attack, my vegetarian/whole foods mom got a brain aneurysm and my young, fit husband developed a heart condition, I began a research quest and started to question all I knew for certain about diet and health. This led to my adoption of a low carbohydrate, real food lifestyle which has greatly improved my health. Reading this book provided me with the evidence behind my intuitive and physical experience of ridding myself of the fear of eating natural fat. I will be passing it out to each of my friends who asks me why I am not afraid of clogging my arteries. It was reassuring and it is a great accessible resource. (I will be buying a few more copies to give to my doctors as well).
