   schema:description "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."@en ;
