Sears makes a lot of circular arguments that don t really support his points He throws in a lot of theories facts implying that they support his points but which don t really do so His theories could be absolutely correct but his book does absolutely nothing to convince me Early on Sears explains that eicosanoids are super hormones that control the body s hundreds of hormonal systems each system having two opposing hormones He then labels eicosanoids as either good or bad with many warnings against bad eicosanoids If it s a uestion of keeping opposing hormones in proper balance how can one be good one be bad Wouldn t it depend on which is over or under produced relative to the other Here s an example of one of his argumentsa 1987 study by a team of researchers at Stanford University showed that as many as 25 percent of an otherwise normal healthy population that s about 60 million Americans respond genetically to excess dietary carbohydrate by producing too much insulin I think it s highly possible that this subset of the US population may make up nearly 100 percent of our heart disease patientsFirstly A study means nothing no matter who did the research There need to be multiple studies that come up with the same results to make it anything worth basing decisions uponSecondly Sears thinks it s highly possible that this subset may make up nearly 100 percent of heart disease patients Are we supposed to be swayed by one of his hunches And where did he come up with this idea How does he support his theory that most heart disease patients respond genetically to excess dietary carbohydrate by producing too much insulin Even if he could site studies that prove it that doesn t prove that too much insulin is what caused the heart disease How many people genetically produce too much insulin and don t develop heart diseaseThe book is filled with examples like thisSears has one grand theory to promote and it may turn out to be dead on But he cannot support it with scientific research Period I have destroyed my copy of this book rather than donating it to the library because I don t want to pass on this drivel Look elsewhere for dietary advice
