Put Your Heart In Your Mouth

If you stop any person on the street and ask them what causes heart disease, you know what the answer will be: butter and eggs, meat and fat. Did you know that this idea comes from a hypothesis, which has been proven to be entirely false? This infamous hypothesis, called The Diet-Heart Hypothesis, has been proposed in 1953, and it took scientists all over the world a few decades to prove it wrong. Trouble is, while the science was working on it, a hugely powerful and wealthy political and commercial machine was built based on the diet-heart hypothesis. This machine has too much vested interest in this hypothesis to allow it to die, so they do their best to vigorously promote it to the population.

We have been subjected to anti-fat and anti-cholesterol propaganda for decades relentlessly and with increasing intensity. If this policy was correct, if indeed natural fat and cholesterol-rich foods caused heart disease, then the rates of this disease would have fallen by now. But they are not falling, they are increasing! So, the policy is wrong, and how can it be right, if it is based on a wrong hypothesis!

The book will not only explain what really causes heart disease, but also provide you with a detailed guidance on what we should eat to prevent any degenerative condition, including heart disease.

An updated version of this book is out now. It has more information and up-to-date references.

Dr Natasha says: "For millennia, possibly for millions of years human kind has prized fatty foods. People travelled long distances to obtain animal fat and considered it "a sacred food". Fatty cuts of meat, fish and shellfish, eggs, cream and butter were reserved for the most important members of the tribe or the family: for their leaders, for the warriors going into battle, for couples who were trying to conceive, for growing children, for wise elders, and for those recovering from an illness. This ancient wisdom was passed through generations until the last few decades, when the infamous diet-heart hypothesis was born. At the time it was a tentative idea that maybe heart disease had something to do with dietary fats. As there was no other idea around, the authorities picked it up as a working hypothesis. A hypothesis is not 'the truth' until the science has proven it. More than fifty years have passed since then, and THE SCIENCE HAS SPOKEN: THE DIET-HEART HYPOTHESIS IS FALSE! NATURAL ANIMAL FATS AND CHOLESTEROL-RICH FOODS DO NOT CAUSE HEART DISEASE, THEY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT; IN FACT THEY PREVENT IT!

I believe, it is time for the diet-heart hypothesis to be put into the history books. Remember the children's fairy tale The Emperor's New Clothes by Hans Christian Andersen? In this story the two wiley weavers promise an Emperor a new suit of clothes that are invisible to those unfit for their positions, stupid or incompetent. The King and everybody else fall for their trick, and the Emperor parades before his subjects naked, thinking that he is wearing "new magic clothes". It takes a child to see the truth and cry out, "But the king isn't wearing anything at all!". Once the silence is broken, everybody else sees the truth, and the king runs away in shame.

Somebody has to be that child, who breaks the silence about the diet-heart hypothesis - the malignant idea that is doing immeasurable damage to the health of people all over the world! Many eminent scientists tried to do it through the years and are doing it now. To hear them, please read my book!"

"We started eating lots of animal fat and I want everyone to know that my attacks of heart racing in the middle of the night or any other time have vanished. My anxiety level is lower than I can ever remember and constantly improving. Thank God for Dr Campbell-McBride's book, Put your Heart in your Mouth, it convinced me we were doing the right thing... Over the years I have tried many new and different ways of eating; vegetarian, proper combining, metabolic typing, diet according to your blood type and more recently, only sprouted grains and flours. None, I repeat, none of these ways of eating improved our health like eating traditional foods."
