About the Author
Udo published his best-seller Fats That Heal Fats That Kill in 1993, which became recognized as the bible on fats. To set new standards for food oils and other health-supporting consumer products, Udo partnered with Flora Manufacturing and Distributing Ltd. in 1994 to create the Udo's Choice® health product line which includes EFA-rich oil blends and other blends of supplements (see udoschoice.com.

Other titles include Choosing the Right Fats (2001)and Omega-3 Cuisine (2008), co-authored with vegan chef Alan Roettinge. Udo resides in Vancouver, B.C., and is currently working on his latest books, including two on fats and oils, due out in 2017.

Even worse are those who are consuming fats that are "illness by prescription"--and don't know it. Learn the truth, corroborated with good science, get informed, use the information.
This book is THE quintessential one on making one of the most vital decisions in your daily cuisine. Erasmus has a gift of taking the complex and making it an easy read. More importantly, one can, after reading this book, use the information to reach for your maximum health potential.
If you have a desire to be as healthy as your genetics will allow, then do not skip this book---it is as critical as anything you do, including check-ups and medical tests.
I feel most fortunate I got my hands on it before I did more damage. I wish it were published at the beginning of the century. Many of the degenerative diseases would have been greatly diminished.
Finally, to his credit, Erasmus does not use the book to promote his propietary oil, Udo's Choice, manufactured by the top of the line Flora Company. Rather, he gives you the information to decide how to purchase the best oils
Through Erasmus' well delivered explanation of the biological and functional processes of the omega-3s and the many ways the body utilizes it, including the activation of prostaglandins-2-the master regulator of fatty acid metabolism-our best effort is to try and incorporate them into the diet daily. Taking a naturopathic approach, Dr. Erasmus sees the use of fresh seeds and their oil derivatives as healers of the many ailments now griping the modern American. This book was written and published in the 80's; it is still relevant today and I can only Imagine the severe deficiencies we have well into the 21st century.
What I enjoyed most from reading is that Erusmus' persuasion could be felt through his passion of this subject and is genuinely believable. He provides us with the real natural prescription to the many diseases and degenerative conditions, which is through dieting. True healers of modern illness and diseases is not pharmaceutical drug dependency, but is, through time, making the effort to consume organic whole foods.
By this book we, of course, especially are getting all of the information concerning the Fats, and thereby Oils. That is what we are getting from each of these of calories, the highest temperatures by which we must treat them, the difference of the amount of different Fatty acids composition in each of them, if they have been destroyed by producers, and if they are good or bad when it comes to our health. On the side 237 we are getting a Table with 32 Fats, showing the amount of the different Fatty acids which they are containing.
Being so detailed, as the book is, and having so many sides, it took me many days to read it. Among the details, we for example on the side 73 are reading about lowering the Cholesterol, which among other have resulted in some cases of suicides. And concerning Cholesterol, for example, doctors 3 years ago, tried to put my wife on Drugs, which I then stopped by showing them, that among other, according to calculations taken from a Harvard book, my wife had much less chance than I, for getting a heart attack.
And furthermore, concerning the Cholesterol, we on the side 335 are reading that 2 quarts/day, of whole milk, for some persons, can raise their Cholesterol levels from 180 mg/dl to 400 mg/dl in less than 2 months. But still all of the doctors, I yet here have met, only are prescribing Drugs to their patients, without asking what they daily are eating and drinking, and most of the patients blindly are following their doctors.
And on the side 417 we are having Erasmus dialog with the Dean in the medical school where he was studying, and by this dialog he understand that persons, who are studying for being doctors, only are learning how to repair their patient, and not besides also in searching after the reasons to the actual failure. And on one sides we are reading that there have been Drugs giving up to 700 %, or more, in profit. This as the result of the producers making patented Drugs, instead of the better working, and healthier, natural Pills, as these would lower the profits. And that most doctors actual don't know about the better natural Pills, and furthermore are getting payments from the Drug producers.
And concerning Cancer we among other, on the side 412, we are reading how patient cured for Cancer by natural ways, with full documents on this, since 1946 have been presented before the U.S. Senate. But this still up to date not have changed the politics, including information to the public.
We for example also in the book are reading about Sugar which among other also is making influence about how fast we are aging. And much more of interesting detail we read in the book.
A highly important and interesting book, which probably still in the future will continue being the best lexica concerning the Fats which we daily are eating. Tomorrow I'm going to lend the book to a doctor, to whom I'll be discussing about Drugs, but also about the Vitamins B3 (the Niacin) and K2, which we can't get here in Thailand.
