Choosing Foods for a Healthy Heart
The author is an internist specializing in gastroenterology and nutrition. He has devised the Cardiovascular Effects Index (CEF), a calculation for determining the cardiovascular impact of food items. His system takes into account nutritional factors beyond just cholesterol and saturated fat, and the idea is to keep intake to 30 or under on his scale. Values are provided for 1,000 foods, including fast foods from various franchises. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
