The basic premise is a sound one, THE DIET ASPECT IS GREAT IN MANY RESPECTS, & yet, the info in the book itself could have been put into a book75% smaller, & it looks like an advert for many foods that are simply NOT available in countries other than USA...
No mention of DMSO, pH of the blood, nor of foods that for centuries have been known as useful for basic good health, blood cleansing & thinning et al, nor any mention of pH values...
I have been basically vegetarian since 1968 & most of the book is just padding, & a waste of trees..
No mention the book was made from recycled or bamboo paper!
And, looking at the type set & book layout, the book is designed for old folks &.. a lot of basic Common Sense was shared...(well done for that, as Common Sense does not seem to be very common in 2023, does it!?)…
And, NOTES are a joke or an after thought somehow???... Well, with NOTES, no ENDNOTE indicators on the pages involved are present (as we first read it), thus no indicator that a ENDNOTE actually exists, is there? As we find out later on that ENDNOTES do exist & THEN we have to SEARCH TO find the ENDNOTE lines indicated (most odd, never seen that before)? !
And, just under HALF the book is recipes etc, with the addition of Appendix B as an advert for Food Brands to stock the house with, ...{ which made me feel that it was a PAID COMMERCIAL site}?
So, overall, I found some useful info that could have been shared in 30 pages or so, and the rest of the 506 pages was padding to make the publishers & gullible public happy at the $49.90 Australia$ price tag...
Life hey! ✔️

The guru of reversing heart disease (who recently got Medicare and insurance companies to cover his programs) is back, saying that the origin of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and even aging itself can be reversed with the same formula:

(1) Eat well [he continues to be a proponent of low-fat vegan]

(2) Move more [moderate daily exercise]

(3) Stress less [or de-stress more with meditation and other practices]


(4) Love more [as it sets in motion a cascade of biochemical reactions that renews the body].… (mere)

I am switching over to this diet, since I am concerned about the effect of the American diet on my health. I am hoping that the diet can help undue some of the damage done by eating meat, dairy, etc. While I realize everyone eventually dies of something, I am not interested in diabetes, heart disease, dementia, and stroke. Since others have done this, I can too. I had thought that eating meat was part of the hunter gatherer’s diet but they typically had short lifespans. I have not put a lot of effort into stress management and I believing that I am making a mistake. The pandemic has caused a lot of isolation and this is not beneficial either. Getting older is scary but I hope going vegan will delay my eventual death and debilitation leading up to death.… (mere)

Ornish begins with some scary statistics. Forty million Americans have been *diagnosed* with cardiovascular disease. Obviously there are many more who don’t even know they have it. Sixty million people have high blood pressure. Eighty million people have elevated cholesterol levels. And over 1.5 million American shave heart attacks every year. These facts alone should be enough to scare you into reading this book.

Ornish and his colleagues found that medications for these conditions don’t always work. They believe that comprehensive lifestyle changes to lower stress levels, eat healthier, and exercise more, can, however, make a difference, and telling you how to do that forms the bulk of this book.

This book is divided into three parts. Part one gives an overview of research about how lifestyle factors affect heart disease, for better or worse. Part two is a “how-to” section for help not only in preventing heart disease but reversing it. Part three is a cookbook with over 150 recipes for healthy eating.

I highly recommend this book. Even if you just make partial changes based on your reading, it may help you live longer.
