About the Author
Dr. Mary G. Enig, a nutritionist/biochemist of international renown for her research on the nutritional aspects of fats and oils, is a consultant, clinician, and the Director of the Nutritional Sciences Division of Enig Associates, Inc., Silver Spring, Maryland. Dr. Enig, a consultant on nutrition to individuals, industry, and state and federal governments, is a licensed practitioner in Maryland and the District of Columbia. She has served as a Contributing Editor of the scientific journal Clinical Nutrition and a Consulting Editor of the Journal of the American College of Nutrition. Dr. Enig has authored numerous journal publications, mainly on fats and oils research and nutrient/drug interactions, and is a well-known invited lecturer at scientific meetings and a popular interviewee on TV and radio shows about nutrition. She was an early and articulate critic of the use of trans fatty acids and advocated their inclusion in nutritional labeling; the scientific mainstream is now challenging the food product industry's use of trans-containing partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. She received her Ph.D. in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Maryland, College Park, and is a Fellow of The American College of Nutrition, a member of The American Society for Nutritional Sciences, and President of the Maryland Nutritionists Association.

I became interested in fatty acids a long time ago but only recently experienced the applied knowledge when I added healthy fats and avoided toxic trans fats. It was to improve my lipid profile, but did wonders for my inflamed hands and other ortho problems.
I haven't taken nsaids in months. I quit going to my pain management physician. I can walk for a few miles now, comfortably.
The change has been dramatic and this book explains why. I found the chapter about the history of diet recommendations to be eye opening and disturbing. This was know for decades but was swept aside due to pressure from various food industries.
