A must read book for the health conscious person.,
This review is from: The Big Fat Surprise: why butter, meat, and cheese belong in a healthy diet (Kindle Edition)
I'm a retired doctor. All my career, though it wasn't my specialty, heart disease fascinated me because I knew that there were flaws in the beliefs of its genesis. There were far too many things that didn't fit. Two years ago I read John Yudkin's Pure White and Deadly and that opened my mind to the poison that is sugar. I began to read voraciously after this and read numerous books and very many papers. I noticed that there were numerous papers comparing Atkins diet to others, in recent years and despite its being included in a hope that it would be shown up as charlatanism, in every single case it was the star-diet.
This fabulous book, exhaustively researched, is the icing on the cake. Fat is good, Sugar in bad, Nina is a star. She will be attacked of course, but only because the trousers of the powers that be are down around their ankles.
