Learn how to: reduce your weight, lower your cholesterol, control your diabetes, prevent heart disease, reduce the risk of cancer, improve brain function, develop stronger bones, increase your longevity, eliminate arthritis symptoms, protect the prostate, improve fertility, and give birth to a healthier baby. You'll discover the important role of essential fatty acids for health and learn how to easily incorporate them into your diet to reduce the risks of disease. of health problems in recent years. Lorna Vanderhaeghe and Karlene Karst do an excellent job of clearing up this and other misconceptions about fat. They also provide readers with practical ways to evaluate dietary fats and fatty acid supplements. - Julian Whitaker, MD, Health and Healing newsletter.
