The American Heart Association and other leading health organizations recommend a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet to prevent heart attacks. But now -- in an important new book sure to generate heated controversy -- a world-renowned physician at the forefront of metabolic research explains why this may be dangerous and lays out a simple six-point program to reduce the risk of heart disease for everyone. The problem stems from a little-known cluster of metabolic abnormalities known as Syndrome X. The insulin resistance that lies at the heart of the syndrome turns normal rules of good health on their head and dramatically increases the risk of heart disease for those affected. From the physician whose research originally discovered this silent killer, this book describes simple blood tests that identify the disorder and provides a program of diet and exercise (plus medication when necessary) that can render Syndrome X harmless. Tested in carefully controlled research settings and in practice, this remarkable new approach has the ability to reduce the risk of heart attacks and heart disease for all of us.… (more)
