Fats that Heal Fats that Kill
Expanded edition (1 Dec 1993), Fats that Heal Fats that Kill is an essential read for anyone serious about health and nutrition. Since its first publication in 1986, under the title Fats and Oils Dr Udo Erasmus has become an internationally recognised authority on the subject of fats.
Healing fats are required, together with other nutrients, to prevent and reverse so-called incurable degenerative disease: heart disease, cancer, and type II diabetes. Healing fats help reverse arthritis, obesity, PMS, allergies, asthma, skin conditions, fatigue, yeast and fungal infections, addictions, certain types of mental illness, and many other conditions. Good fats also enhance athletic performance, skin beauty, longevity, and energy levels.
Contrary to popular belief based on advertising hype, the most dangerous fats are typically found in margarine, shortenings and heated oils. Fats that Heal Fats that Kill exposes the manufacturing processes that turn healing fats into killing fats, explains that effects of these damaged fats on human health, and discloses the information that enables you to choose health promoting oils. Fats that Heal Fats that Kill brings you the most current research on common and less well-known oils with therapeutic potential: flax, hemp, olive, fish, evening primrose, borage, black currant, and even the much maligned snake oil. You may be shocked and surprised by what you learn.
"A tremendous amount of hard-to-find information- this is the first book to make sense of the role of fats in health. A welcome relief from the one-sided approach of our current health authorities, who espouse the low-fat diet as the panacea for all health problems."
"The informed and balanced presentation will help to take the fear out of fats" Richard A. Kunin , MD, author: Mega Nutrition and The Listen to Your Body Diet ; President : International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine.
