Famous for his high-fat, low-carbohydrate weight-loss programs, the author says that we don't get cardiovascular disease from animal fats. We get it from excessive blood sugar and not enough of the dietary nutrients necessary to prevent aging and atherosclerosis. There's a lot of information here--on cholesterol, antioxidants, free radicals, glucose processing, and cell physiology--but it's couched in language that sounds natural and integrated. At a minimum, it will motivate listeners to check out some of the author's assertions. An excellent reading by Jeffrey DeMunn helps make this one of the most stimulating audios on aging available today. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
