PROPER DIET

The role of the liver in protecting you from excess fats. The liver manufactures protective chemical sub¬stances called phospholipids. These phospholipids in the blood help to ward off the effects of too much fat and help to protect you from heart attack. They suppress the damaging effects of cholesterol upon the arteries of the heart and brain.

If your liver is not function¬ing normally and producing a sufficient quantity of these protec¬tive agents, you can find them in certain foods. Some foods that contain phospholipids in abundance are soybeans and the liver of calves, steers, lambs, and chickens. The Vitamin-B complex vitamins also have the ability to increase the blood phospho¬lipids. Defatted soybean lecithin in particular is an ideal pre¬paration for increasing these protective phospholipids in the blood.

These protective agents lower the blood cholesterol and bring about a better balance between the amount of phospholipids and cholesterol in the blood. The lowering in the amount of choles¬terol protects you against the development of atherosclerosis.

Isn't there some medicine that will stop fat from caus¬ing heart attacks? Medical science has searched diligently for some new chemical or medicine that would provide the answer to this question. Some progress has been made, and the full answer will come in time. Thus the need for something that would be useful to all people, something that would bring definite results in fighting off the killer, fat, remained. The low-fat diet holds great promise for everyone, whether the person has atherosclerosis or not. The low-fat way of life can be followed by anyone, anywhere, and it is simple, safe, effective.

Your diet is the key to your health. Diet is an important factor in the cause and cure of many ills. The wrong foods can cause allergic reactions ranging from the well-known straw¬berry rash to death from allergic asphyxiation. The right foods can help you clear up such allergic reactions. The wrong foods can bring on overweight, sap your energy, and rob you of zest and well-being. And in the degenerative diseases of the heart and blood vessels, diet is the key; it is the difference between active good health and dangerous illness.

By eliminating certain foods from your diet, by including others in the right amounts, and by the use of nutritional sup¬plements, you can achieve at least a 50 per cent protection against heart attack. Unfortunately, as simple as proper dieting is, doctors have found it to be one of the most difficult measures to prescribe for their patients, and one of the most difficult to get them to follow. Proper diet is the easiest and safest thing a physician can prescribe. But because eating habits are so firmly established, and because dietary therapy takes time, many follow a stop-and-go routine that offers little long-range benefits.

A healthy diet does not mean starvation or tasteless foods. Yet a corrective diet does not mean either starvation or the grim necessity of eating unpalatable foods. Moreover, a little experimenting in the kitchen will soon produce meals that, from the standpoint of taste and esthetic appeal, will be equal if not superior to, the high-fat dishes to which you are accustomed.

You do not have to lose energy—good diet increases vigor. Neither does it mean a loss of energy or a sharp reduction in poundage, unless you are overweight, in which case the excess fat is melted off. In fact, if you adhere to the low-fat, low-cholesterol diet recommended, you will feel better; have more vigor, and firmer muscles than before. If you have a faulty fat metabolism, the diet may substantially prolong your life.
