Wild-Type Food in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention
edited by Fabien De Meester

Wild-Type Food in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention: The Columbus Concept is one of the first books to focus on the role of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in unhealthy diets.

Part One identifies the missing essential ratio of competing essential fatty acids in the human diet and relates them to the upsurge of modern chronic disease and associated health costs. The authors also explain the scientific basis of the Columbus Concept and the evidence supporting the rehabilitation of dietary/blood cholesterol.

Part Two discusses the essential ingredients in a daily diet that make blood vessels healthy and resistant.

Part Three introduces the functional part of the diet that brings about health benefits and healthy blood vessels.

Part Four details the health benefits of wild-type foods in various cultures.

Part Five investigates the possibility for novel sources for health promotion.
