You can greatly reduce your risk of developing heart disease or having a heart attack by keeping track of how much bad fat - saturated fat - you eat every day. Bad fat causes your body to manufacture cholesterol, which plugs your coronary arteries with fatty deposits and causes heart attacks. Drs. Castelli and Griffin have filled this book with helpful tips and encouraging advice that will help you make the change to healthier eating. For those whose cholesterol levels aren't moved by changes in diet alone, the doctors discuss the pros and cons of cholesterol-lowering medications.
