about

The question of saturated fatsseems to have settled itself with many people believing that saturated fatshave nothing to do with heart disease. In fact, a good deal of this book laysout the evidence that the so-called “artery-clogging” fats have been put in therole of “villain”…which is an entirely unwarranted role. The facts will show(and each piece of research is fully documented) that such fats have been ascapegoat, the foundations of which started when Keys did his Seven CountriesStudy.

The major actor in the case ofchronic illness might well be an EXCESS of dietary Omega-6, you know: the mainconstituent of vegetable oils like corn oil, sunflower oil, soybean oil and thelike. Such an excess has contributed to heart disease, various cancers,age-related macular degeneration (AMD for short), eczema, asthma, and evendepression. Butter and olive oil are the best for sautéing, baking, etc.Overwhelming evidence indicts an excess intake of omega-6 (otherwise known aslinoleic acid, or

 polyunsaturated fatty acid) as the real“villain” in the piece. This book covers a brief history of oils, whatgovernments have done in terms of trans fats, and, of course,gives a documented case against the excessive use of omega-6, all the whileexplaining just why omega-3s are the good guys.
