Editorial Reviews

Review

"Casting fat as the enemy, despite the best of intentions, has created a host 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

From the Back Cover

You CAN eat fat and be healthy!

For years we have been told that "fat" is bad for us. But the low-fat and no-fat-diets designed to improve our health have instead created an overweight society with skyrocketing rates of heart disease and diabetes. Recent scientific research has shown that certain types of essential fatty acids (EFAs) -- healthy fats -- improve immune and hormone functions, and play a vital role in treating all forms of degenerative disease, including cancer.

Healthy Fats for Life will help you to understand the difference between "good" fats and "bad" fats, while providing a simple plan for obtaining essential fats to reach optimum health. 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
  • 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.

Format: Paperback
I have been trying over the last three years to determine if I wanted to continue living, wanted to find how to stop hurting, and if there was a "miracle" to help me. I was browsing in the library at the Senior Living Complex I live in yesterday and FOUND MY MIRACLE! Just like that.....I couldn't put this wonderful book down; I read it most of the night and finished it the next afternoon. I want to try the two most important solutions to my problems that I found in this publication. FLAX SEED AND FISH OIL! THE SUPER FOODS! I can't thank Lorna and Karlene enough. Their explanations, examples, recommended dosages are so simple to follow. When I read their charts for symptoms, I was amazed to find what I've been begging to know about for the last three years. Suffering might be endurable, but not very enjoyable. I'm hoping that their suggestions will help me want to endure life, ease my pain and that life will be a beautiful option instead of a milestone.

A great book that explains why fats are important. For too long fats have been lumped together and demonized to the detriment of the health of society. We are paying a terrible price for the scientific and economic decision to use laboratory created fats. We can return to health by using natural essential fats.

Format: Paperback
I first received this book in 2004 from my local health food store as a gift for spending a bunch of money. I found so many healthy options to incorporate into my diet. Then I began sharing these ideas with family and friends. This book helped my five year old nephew overcome his eczema within a couple of years. It wasn't long before I loaned the book out and never got it back. Eventually all the tips I learned fell by the wayside...until now. I can't wait to get my copy and begin searching for treasures that this book has to offer.

Don't be fooled by the low price. You will be happy with the book, it is priceless. And no, I am not a paid spokesperson.
