Fats are Good for You and Other Secrets by Jon J. Kabara
Book DescriptionAfter almost a hundred years, the cholesterol-heart disease hypothesis has failed to lead to better health and reduced heart disease. In this book, the author argues that cholesterol is undoubtedly associated with the formation of plaque in the arteries (atherosclerosis), but not as a cause but rather as a healing response to vessel damage. The opening chapters of the book discuss the various roles played by fats and cholesterol in the body, with particular emphasis on their antimicrobial and antiviral effects, and their positive influence on oral health. Systematically, the author examines the relationship of dietary fat to the immune system, and the role it plays in cancer. He then discusses the theories of how the buildup of plaque in the arteries (atherosclerosis) begins, and how inflammation and infection are implicated in its development - thus debunking the cholesterol-heart disease hypothesis.While much of the information presented here comes from the author's own work, much of it has been published in scientific journals and books for decades but is rarely made available to the public. The author argues that the reason why laymen, doctors, and most scientists have been misled into believing the cholesterol-heart disease hypothesis is because opposing and disagreeing results are systematically ignored or misquoted in the scientific press.
