Nobody listened to Dr. Atkins before Sears came out with his book. Nobody had heard about Arachidontic Acid (AA) before that either. Unless you know about AA, then you know zilch about inflammation or dietary causes of chronic disease. Bet your doctor knows NOTHING about this. Keep reading.
Fast forward to 2007. Now every 7-11 has a whole shelf of balance bars of all types including Dr. Sears new brand Zone Bars. (He's no longer part of Balance bars.)
After the success of the Zone Diet, Dr. Sears kept busy working on new fronts and he landed a very big fish (or should I say fish oil) in the area of health.
Medical compasses around the world were starting to point towards silent inflammation as the major culprit behind chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, arthritis, obesity, altzheimers, ADHD, and more.
Half of what medicine does is deal with inflammation if you think about it. Put ice on it. Take two aspirin. Gobble ibuprophin. Steroids you say? Doctors deal with inflammation to make us feel better.
Well, there's something called silent inflammation too. That type of inflammation of your arteries, brain, internal organs, joints etc. is a time bomb ready to go off and shorten your life.
Sears understands this and others follow. Researchers chased him and verified his lower carbohydrate balanced diet is more healthy for you than the mighty FDA food pyramid.
They're chasing him again proving that high dose (Eskimo dose) fish oil knocks out silent inflammation and crosses tbe blood brain barrier better than other anti-inflammatories. And... it's just food oil. Safe? Not unless you get pharmaceutical grade. Sears sells it... surprise.
You can get it from other sources if you are smart. Why shouldn't Sears profit though? All the copycats profit off of him.
Anyway, this book will start you on the path to understanding that all those aspirin you've taken over your life and ice packs put on sore ankles had a deeper message for you. GET RID OF INFLAMMATION.
Read this book, get smart and do what Dr. Sears tells you to do. Get all of his books. Omega RX, Zone Diet, Toxic Fat. These will give you a much improved quality of life well into the sunset years.
