My doctor always says (jokingly, of course) that if you have serum cholesterol that is well below 150mg/dL, then you are immortal. This is not a random figure but one which was drawn from Framingham Heart Study, the foremost study when it comes to heart diseases. Dr. Esselstyn's book should be read in this context. The book contains a lot of important information. I was amazed by so many recipes that one could have, and if one uses the one recipe a day, then we would taste the same recipe after many days.
Dr. Esselstyn’s book in a way complements many other studies. The book tells us that one does not need to undergo procedures or take many pills. One needs to change the diet to a plant-based and oil-free diet, completely avoiding or excluding meat and dairy consumption. This particular diet is beneficial in reversing not only heart ailments but diabetes also. This book is a must-have addition to one’s library.
