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 159 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
