Superclass: The Global Power Elite and the World They are Making
Superclass: The Global Power Elite and the World They are Making
by David J. Rothkopf
Edition: Audio CD
Price: 28.29

1.0 out of 5 stars CD's instead of the book!, 15 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought I ordered Superclass as a book, but found to my dismay that it consists of a number of CD's, which I have no use for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional!, 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Death by Food Pyramid (Hardcover)
This is one of the best book on nutrition I have ever read, and I have read many hundreds during the last 35 years! Not only is i very well written, it is well documented, undogmatic and eclectic. I will review it in the Norwegian Helsemagasinet and recommend it to all our readers. Sincerely, Dag Viljen Poleszynski, PhD, editor-in-chief Helsemagasinet (Health magazine science and reason), Norway

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-written overview of the role of homocysteine in CVD, 1 May 2002
McCully is a pioneer in understanding the causes of heart disease and for pinpointing the importance of keeping homocysteine levels low, not only for avoiding heart disease, but in general to reduce free radical damage. He advocates a healthy diet as a basis and supplements when needed, arguing that a paleolithic fare would be the ideal. Two points do not seem logical: He does play down the importance of healthy fat in the etiology of heart disease, the unhealthy fats being trans fatty acids and peroxidized fats. In spite of this he recommends keeping the fat intake below 35% of energy, in my mind not warrented by the fact that CVD-free Inuits may ingest as much as 80% of their energy as fats. His preference for paleo diets does not prevent him from recommending whole grains, known to contain lectins which may damage our health, even if he mentiones the fact that Homo sapiens cannot have adapted to grains since the beginning of agriculture only 10.000 years ago. This much said, the book is highly recommended for its clarity of thought and for letting us in on the sad state of affairs in scientific circles, preventing truth to prevail over dogma.
