"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!

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.

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.

The thing I love about trolls, is that they are so good at providing simple examples of logical falacies. The title of this review is a quote from the earlier review, "Lies and the lying liars..." The reviewer does a good job of explaining the degrees that the author doesn't have, while ignoring the one that he does. An ND degree, or Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, is an advanced degree given out by only a handful of schools. Its requirements are just as stringent as any other advanced degree.

Second point: The mechanism in which serum very low density cholesterol participates in the formation of atherosclerotic plaques is well understood (The Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to Brown and Goldstein in 1985 on the basis of this discovery.) There is also a whole lot of research that refutes the idea that dietary cholesterol has ANY relationship to serum cholesterol, or that serum cholesterol is the only or even most important factor in predicting heart disease (In fact, several studies have shown that serum cholesterol corrolates rather strongly to age, which is an independent risk factor for heart disease.)

Finally, if you are interested in the subject, buy the book, if for no other reason than it presents a valid hypothesis that is rarely talked about. Don't dismiss the work based on the authors credentials (Which are actually pretty good.) And don't dismiss the idea based on a popular competing theory (Neither is bulletproof.)

Wish I had paid more attention to chemistry in school. Makes a lot of sense and clarifies why certain foods (if you can call them that) are not a good choice to eat! This is the second time I have bought the book because I lost the first one. Worth reading.
