5.0 out of 5 stars A "True" Life Saver ! July 20, 2001
"Saturated Fat May Save Your Life!" may be the greatest (and most important) health book ever written!
It explains what the TRUE causes of heart disease are (they're not what the doctors & the media have been telling you!).
Contrary to popular LIES (fabricated by greedy drug companies & the food industry), saturated fat & cholesterol DO NOT cause heart disease.
"Saturated Fat May Save Your Life" tells you EVERYTHING you need to know about dietary fats & cholesterol, including which fats are actually ESSENTIAL for good health, and which fats (omega 6 based vegetable oils) you should AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!
The author, Bruce Fife N.D., tells the reader in very easy-to-understand language why the public has been "duped" into believing that dietary fats (saturated fat)& cholesterol have been unjustly portrayed as "villans".
You learn why vegetable oils (found in cooking & salad oils, frozen foods, fast foods, potato chips & dietary supplements) are the TRUE CAUSE of heart disease.
You will also learn what simple steps you can take to lower your risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke through eliminating & adding certain foods to your diet, and which nutritional supplements offer the best protection against the oxidation - induced damage caused by bad fats.
If you or a loved one has or is concerned about, you MUST READ "Saturated Fat May Save Your Life!"
This "breakthrough" book may just save YOUR life!

5.0 out of 5 stars Saturated Fat may save your life February 6, 2004
I wish I could have read this book seven years ago. I have just read this book a month ago and have embarked in a more saturated diet using Coconut Oil and can already feel a tremendous difference in terms of energy and well being.
Bruce Fife has a very easy way to write that will save the reader a lot of trouble going through the scientific literature on this highly controvertial subject.
His presentation, however, leaves no margin for any doubt anymore. Unless you want to continue suffering from low thyroid function, excess oxidation leading to cancer development and an array of other ailments you have to change your diet to a more healthy alternative and that includes coconut oil, grass fed milk butter, olive oil, etc...
I am indebted to this book and its life changing recommendations.

5.0 out of 5 stars The wisdom of Nature September 2, 2004
This book presents its evidence with impeccable logic, showing why saturated fat is essential for good health. At the same time, the dangers of using polyunsaturated fats (so popular today) are clearly revealed through the detailed descriptions of what actually happens to these fats inside our bodies. The overall picture that emerges is not very flattering to the natural health industry, which has been aggressively promoting polyunsaturated oils as being the healthiest. Therefore, no one should be surprised when this book is attacked by those, who have a vested interest in keeping up the status quo of the industry. The objective reader, however, will find this book an invaluable addition to the growing evidence that man's cleverness can never compete with the wisdom of Nature.

And personal experience serves as the best validation for all the points raised in the book. We have incorporated coconut oil into our daily diet, and the difference it has made has been nothing short of astonishing. Everyone can put this to the test.
