So-called government and health "authorities" never tire of reminding those of us who live in industrialized countries that heart disease is a major cause of death. They go even further when they tell us that heart disease is eminently preventable, all the while conceding that one's genetic background predetermines numerous factors with influence over each individual's risk of succumbing to heart attack. They tout that diet is a foremost factor among causes of heart disease and that modifying your diet provides a workable means of preventing heart attacks. If only people would do what they are advised - reduce their intake of fats, especially those rich in saturated fatty acids - then the high toll of death and disability from this disease could be readily reduced.
Dr. Dean wholeheartedly disagrees!
In this extensive program, you'll learn the scientific basis on which this advice is based and where it is flawed. Although the many reports of "expert committees" acknowledge that diet may influence the underlying pathology of heart disease in several ways, current dietary guidelines are based mainly on what Dr. Dean calls "the diet heart paradigm".

Thank you for uncovering some truth!
So many have been misled by the folks that are supposed to be doing the hard, unbiased resrarch inro the cause of CHD. Thankfully Dr Roberts has done his homework and exposes the flaws in the edict that high cholesterol must be attacked with statin medications and a lowfat diet. Health comes from eating pure, minimally proceessed foods and staying active. It is sad that i had to ask my doctor to do an LDL particle size analysis during a recent cholesterol blood test and he didnt undetstand why i needed anything more than a basic panel. Turns out that 99% of my LDL particles are large, meaning they dont cause arterial wall damage and cause pkaque buildup. Yet he still pushed me start statins. Why? Why cant some brave docs like Dr Roberts challenge the status quo and help us find new theories as to the precursors and causes of CHD. Until then, we are left to educate ourselves and modify our lifestyles accordingly. i highly recommend this book as a starting ooint to that education.
