Agree with Dr. Pinckney and Ricardo.

A clear message is simple -- and simple to follow. The following is the black and white version -- very simple.
Overly cautious? Draconian? Perhaps and perhaps, but I can't apologize for 'better safe than sorry', even if it
could certainly be put more diplomatically. A surprising number of people who desperately need this
information have heard it -- and paid not a blind bit of notice -- hence this "Just the facts, Ma'am" version.

60gms of fat a day is suicide if you have heart disease -- Russian Roulette with six bullets in six chambers? --
Not a good idea.

For 33% of those under sixty five, the first indication of heart disease is ... death.

"Every male over 65 in the US eating the Standard American Diet (SAD diet) _has_ heart disease and should be
treated as such." - Dr. Lewis Kuller, in Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Caldwell Esselstyn.

1.5m heart attacks per annum. 500k US deaths from heart disease per annum. 3m more silent heart attacks,
unrecognized. Fifty percent of US deaths are heart related - heart attacks and strokes. _And_ women after
menopause, so they can't get (too) cocky.

John McDougall - 20% of his patients do the right thing and are generally successful in other areas of their
lives. 40% need a shock -- possibly a very serious medical problem -- before they would change. The final
40% are hopeless. They will not change. "And they often exhibit destructive behaviour in other areas of their

"Heart disease need never occur. And if it does occur it need never progress. Heart-attack proof in (about)
three weeks." - Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.

"I don't see why it is considered radical to recommend a plant-based diet and conservative to cut people
open." - Dr. Dean Ornish. "Bravo" - Dr. Esselstyn.

Follow Esselstyn's diet one hundred percent and you need never count calories (for fat or for weight) ever
again. Can't do it? Willpower of a gnat? That's too bad. Because from here on death from heart disease is surely
suicide by fork and spoon.

Life - better than the alternative?
