This review is from: Cholesterol and Saturated Fat Prevent Heart Disease - Evidence from 101 Scientific Papers (Paperback)When I first saw this book I assumed I would not be able to understand "scientific papers" as I have no scientific knowledge (aside from gr. 12 biology, 25 yrs ago), but the studies were explained so well and strung together so well, they were easy and enjoyable to read.
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).
