Reversing Heart Disease is possible
on 1 September 2009
I have read this book with great interest as a sufferer from Heart disease for about 20 years. It is written with a great degree of knowledge and experience and pulls no punches in exposing the hypocrisy and self serving interest of the government and medical establishment who advocate a diet to supposedly prevent heart disease and yet the diet they promote inevitably still leaves the population liable to the disease. The book is thorough, though it would benefit from an index and a table of food values. The diet suggested by the author is extremely strict and contains one illogicality. The diet is vegan and has a maximum fat limit of 10% of daily calories obtained from fat. The author does not explain why animal products are banned in spite of the fact that the 10% limit could be achieved even with animal products - as I am able to do. I have also read Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease and I believe that is the better book on this subject.
