Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn

What's more, eating fat [even as added oil] causes the body itself to manufacture excessive amounts of cholesterol, which explains why vegetarians who eat oil, butter, cheese, milk, ice cream, glazed doughnuts, and French pastry develop coronary disease despite their avoidance of meat. 

 

Having the USDA design your food pyramid is like having Al Capone do your taxes.

 

Here are the facts. Coronary artery disease is the leading killer of men and women in Western civilization. In the United States alone, more than half a million people die of it every single year. Three times that number suffer known heart attacks. And approximately three million more have "silent" heart attacks, experiencing minimal symptoms and having no idea, until well after the damage is done, that they are in mortal danger. In the course of a lifetime, one out of every two American men and one out of every three American women will have some form of the disease.

~ Caldwell Blakeman Esselstyn Jr., M.D., (born December 12, 1933), American physician, author, and former Olympic rowing champion;  Director of the cardiovascular prevention and reversal program at The Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute; author Taste Addiction, Added Oil, & Heart Disease
