This is an excellent reference for both the lay person and the medical professional." - ARBA "Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and above; general readers." - Choice

First, the book makes no distinction as to whether the research subject, if animal, was appropriate to the protocol or investigation and therefore the validity of whatever conclusions were drawn from it. For instance, some of the worst advice we have about dietary cholesterol came from feeding massive amounts of cholesterol (only present in animal-based foods) to a strict vegetarian (rabbit). Meaningful interpretations from those results weren’t possible because rabbits don’t metabolize cholesterol the same as humans, yet they were the basis of some of the initial warnings against dietary cholesterol for humans, which decades later are starting to be reversed because they were never supported by science.
My second big issue is has to do with Omega 3 v. Omega 6 oils. The former are generally anti-inflamnmatory and the latter inflammatory. You need both in your diet but in fairly equal amounts. The typical American diet is very heavy in Omega 6 oils which tends to suppress the action of Omega 3 oils because they compete for some of the same metabolic pathways. The book summarized a great many studies where this issue could have been key, but the control oil and/or whether the diet as a whole could have been top heavy in Omega 6 often wasn’t identified. This information often is not available for studies, in which case the book should have flagged that. I think as a result of this apparent lack of concern by the authors, the book recommends a number of Omega-6 rich oils. Not a good policy.
I think if you come to the book with a prior understanding of the limitations of animal research on fats in humans, as well as an appreciation for the danger of excessive Omega 6, there is a lot of valuable information. I’m more likely to reach for olive oil than I used to be. My concern is that someone without that background might misuse some of the recommendations. The book did not separate Fact from Fiction for me.
