Beyond Cholesterol: The Johns Hopkins Complete Guide for Avoiding Heart Disease
A competent, detailed description of the coronary risk factors written for the lay reader. A happy antidote to the distasteful and dangerous quick-fix nonsense that floods the health shelves. Kwiterovich (lipid research, Hopkins medical school) is conscientious in detailing the major studies, their implications, and clinical importance. He is not unrealistically optimistic, but gives hopeful advice for those at risk. No bibliography. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
