Western diseases : their dietary prevention and reversibility by Norman J Temple ( Book )
5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The distinguished writers here examine in detail the impact on Western health of our highly refined, meat-based diet - rich in fat, cholesterol, and salt, but low in fiber - using, where necessary, cross-cultural data to enhance our understanding. They then explore the role of diet in chronic degenerative diseases and the effects of vitamins and minerals on cancer, hypertension, and other illnesses. And finally, they discuss the possibility of reversing certain of these diseases by dietary means

Eat right--to keep healthy and enjoy life more : how simple diet changes can prevent many common diseases by D. P Burkitt ( Book )
2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: The majority of human illnesses result from location and environment, rather than inherent physical defects. So-called degenerative diseases, such as cancer and atherosclerosis, are rare in Third World countries, making the qualifier "degenerative" inappropriate. Among diseases common in Western, industrialized nations, but rare in Third World countries are coronary heart disease, appendicitus, hiatus hernia, varicose veins, haemorrhoids, colon cancer, diabetes and obesity. These diseases are related either directly or indirectly to the behavior of the lower intestinal tract as food passes through it. Third World countries consume 2 1/2 times more fiber than Western countries. Fiber retains water, makes the intestinal content more viscous and slows down the rate of sugar and starch absorption to the bloodstream. How dietary fiber can protect against the above named illnesses and alternatives to the current Western diet are discussed
