Mar 08, Naomi rated it it was amazing Enig, often regarded as the "brains" behind the Weston Price Foundation, struts her stuff in this book in such a way that may be a bit much for the layman beware, there are graphs of fat molecules. Jan 27, Margaret rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Nutritionists, people interested in fat This is more of a textbook and resource rather than easy reading, but if you are a lay person interested in fats, this will be fairly easy to read One of the nice things about it. What I liked about this book is that it not only provides a very clear explanation for the metabolism of fats but it also provided references to the makeup of specific fatty acids of many different types of fats so you can see the proportion of medium chain to long chain to short chain, etc. There is also an This is more of a textbook and resource rather than easy reading, but if you are a lay person interested in fats, this will be fairly easy to read One of the nice things about it.

Discarding politically correct notions that saturated fats are unhealthy, Dr. Mary Enig presents a thorough, in-depth and understandable look at the world of lipids. Know Your Fats is the only book on fats and oils for the consumer and the professional written by a recognized authority in the field. Virtually all other titles on fats and oils currently in print are either too technical to be accessible by the layman, or are too error-laden to be worth the paper they are printed on.

Mary Enig made her mark in the nutritional world in when she and her colleagues at the University of Maryland published a paper in Federation Proceedings that directly challenged government assertions that higher cancer rates were associated with animal fat consumption. Enig and her colleagues concluded that the data actually indicated that vegetable oils and trans fatty acids—not saturated fats—were the culprits for the rising incidence of both cancer and heart disease.

In the ensuing years, Enig and her colleagues focused their work on determining the trans fatty acid content of various food items, as well as publishing research that clearly demonstrated TFAs to be potent carcinogens, prime factors in heart disease and immune system disrupters.

Molecular structure diagrams are used to demonstrate the metabolic conversion products of each of the major fatty acids oleic, linoleic, linolenic, and palmitoleic. The physiology of fats and cholesterol is fully covered in Chapter 2. Almost half of this chapter is devoted to shattering popular myths about saturated fats. Not mincing any words, Enig methodically demonstrates the faulty data and reasoning behind the ideas that saturates either cause or contribute to heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer, mental illness, obesity and cerebrovascular disease.

It was a false issue then, and it remains a false issue today. Never one to shy away from controversy, Enig blasts such organizations as the American Dietetics Association, the Center for Science in the Public Interest, the American Heart Association, and the food industry in general.

Price Foundation and an editorial board member of the Australian holistic magazine WellBeing. Dr Byrnes died of a stroke in at the age of During the final years of his life, he suffered extreme physical, emotional and financial stress, including threats from a stalker and having to defend himself in a frivolous lawsuit.
