Book by Dr James Carlson
« on: 07 February 2013, 08:44:42 PM »
I've just finished reading Dr James Carlson's book 'Genocide: how your doctor's dietary ignorance will kill you': http://www.amazon.co.uk/Genocide-Your-Doctors-Dietary-Ignorance/dp/1419685821/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1360269368&sr=1-1  Dr Carlson really explains very well why low carb diet is good for health, especially good for cholesterol profile and diabetes of course, but also many other health issues. He used to have free chapters from this book up on his website but somehow he lost the website so I just had to buy the book and I'm so glad I did.

Dr Carlson writes in a very, how shall I say, conversational style :) Some criticise him for that but it doesn't bother me as what he has to say is so fascinating and well explained. Very easy to understand.

Some of you may remember that Patti found several videos of lectures by him on Youtube, here's a link to them too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d86WeZxCRUw

This book looks very interesting, Anne, and I might just look into buying it. Might be what I need to make me see sense at the moment.

Hi Maureen - I thought of you while I was reading it because Dr Carlson also talks about high blood pressure and why low carb helps with that - part of that to do with the fact that if you are on 'normal' carb your kidneys keep hold of salt - even if you don't add salt to your food, it's just the natural sodium in food -  and that goes to raise blood pressure !
