I was raised in a home where the pun was the highest form of humor, so the title of this book made me laugh and intrigued me. 'Cereal Killer' by Alan Watson is a well written and entertaining book about the dangers of a low fat diet and what you should be eating to be healthy. Did you know that heart attacks were virtually non-existent prior to the 1920's and the advent of corn oil, vegetable oils and margarine? How can this be, when your medical doctor is telling you that low fat is necessary for heart health? It is time to look at the facts. Mr. Watson goes through a lot of very well written and documented books ('Good Calories, Bad Calories' by Gary Taub; 'Know Your Fats' by Mary Enig, 'Nutrition and Physical Degeneration' by Weston A. Price, and others) and simplifies them and makes the information in them understandable. He has one of the best simple explanations of cholesterol that I have seen. It is nice that at the end of each chapter he tells you which book he was basing it on. He gives you information on another book on the same topic if you want to do further reading. If you are confused about the role of fats in your diet you will find this to be a very helpful book. I am handing them out to patients right and left. My children have found this book interesting and I find them reading through some of the chapters often and I haven't assigned it.
