Fats That Heal, Fats that Kill
Healing fats are required, together with other nutrients, to prevent and reverse so-called "incurable" degenerative diseases: heart disease, cancer, and Type II diabetes. Healing fats also help reverse arthritis, obesity, PMS, allergies, asthma, skin conditions, fatigue, yeast and fungal infections, addictions, certain types of mental illness, and many other conditions.
Contrary to popular belief based on deceptive advertising hype, the most dangerous fats are typically found in margarines, shortenings, and heated oils.
Fats That Heal Fats That Kill exposes the manufacturing processes that turn healing fats into killing fats, explains the effects of these damaged fats on human health, and discloses information that enables you to choose health-promoting oils.
Fats That Heal Fats That Kill tells you the whole story on fats and health in a balanced way, examining all aspects of useful oils including the much maligned snake oil. You may be shocked by what you learn.
This extensive subject is poorly understood at the best of times - which, unfortunately contributes to the toll on public health. To convey the truest message to the largest number of people, Udo has written the book with 15-year old readers in mind. But, the book also includes some chemical diagrams for those with science background, insatiable curiosity, or those who simply like to challenge themselves.
"This book should be required reading in every high school health class. Why? For way too long, even those who are health conscious with the best intentions have made critical mistakes in choosing our fats and oils. For example, for years I purchased unrefined oils of "macrobiotic quality", packaged in a clear bottle and used them at high heat...a critical mistake! Read this book and find out why!!
Even worse are those who are consuming fats that are "illness by prescription"--and don't know it. Learn the truth, corroborated with good science, get informed, use the information.
"This book is THE quintessential one on making one of the most vital decisions in your daily cuisine. Erasmus has a gift of taking the complex and making it an easy read. More importantly, one can, after reading this book, use the information to reach for your maximum health potential.
If you have a desire to be as healthy as your genetics will allow, then do not skip this book---it is as critical as anything you do, including check-ups and medical tests.
I feel most fortunate I got my hands on it before I did more damage. I wish it were published at the beginning of the century. Many of the degenerative diseases would have been greatly diminished.
Finally, to his credit, Erasmus does not use the book to promote his propietary oil, Udo's Choice, manufactured by the top of the line Flora Company. Rather, he gives you the information to decide how to purchase the best oils."

Editor's note: if you are serious about your health, you must read this book. After observing the cooking and eating habits of our people, I have all but to conclude that the high-temperature treated oils and re-used oils are, at least, partly responsible for making us succumb to serious degenerative diseases (cancers and heart diseases) and agonizing premature death!
