In 2017 I self-published a book on diet, which I posted about working on here in 2013. The book was privately published as Forbidden Food. It hasn’t sold even as well as A Bitter Pill my book on how the medical system is failing the elderly. You can’t win them all.
At about the same time and obviously coincidentally, I had symptoms of and was treated by an interventionist cardiologist with a “stent” for 95% blockage of one of my coronary arteries. That blockage could have killed me but touching wood I can say I’ve been just fine ever since.
I was quite surprised that the experienced academic cardiologist whom I’ve been seeing every six months or so since the stent has never mentioned diet. I’m sure it’s another coincidence that the most important experts in heart disease quit believing that fat, salt, and sugar are killing us and at about the same time John published his book. Great minds think alike. Please forgive me if I quietly high-five over that one.
