America is in the midst of the greatest epidemic of its history. It is not a virus; it is not global warming; it is not obesity, per se. It is the imbalance of fat in our diet that is leading to heart disease, cancer, depression, ADD/ADHD, osteoporosis, arthritis, and many other disorders. Why are 650,000 Americans dying annually from heart attacks? Why are 3 young adults committing suicide every day? Why do we all know of a loved one suffering or dead from cancer? These and many other questions about the decay of America's health are answered by the imbalance of fat in the western diet. This book explores the background and devastation caused by this fat imbalance that has developed in our lifetime. From alpha to omega, it gives you guidance toward better health, and a new life in 42 days. M.
