Synopsis: Dr. John McDougall has long been at the forefront of women's health care. First to publish a groundbreaking article showing the benefits of a low-fat diet for women with breast cancer in 1983, he continues to lecture regularly on women's health issues and has cared for tens of thousands of women who have benefited dramatically from his advice. Now he arms women with the facts needed to achieve a lifetime of good health in his timely, important, comprehensive new book The McDOUGALL Program for Women. Thoroughly covering general topics such as weight loss and exercise programs, Dr. McDougall also includes more specialized subjects like herbal treatments for the symptoms of menopause, dietary approaches to preventing osteoporosis, and balancing the positives and negatives of hormone replacement therapy. A comprehensive guide for women with specific health problems or those who simply seek a healthier lifestyle, The McDougall Program for Women belongs in every home reference library.

Review: Women trust and rely on their doctors for medical guidance. "Unfortunately, that advice is sometimes biased or ill-informed," says John McDougall, M.D. "The consequence is that a lot of women choose treatments that are ineffective at best, or harmful at worst." In The McDougall Program for Women, he discusses the most common medical conditions affecting women, such as breast cancer, menopause, cardiovascular disease, and osteoporosis (don't miss his explanation of how high consumption of animal protein destroys bones). He describes how best to treat these conditions and the benefits and risks of the usual treatments. His solution to women's health problems isn't hormones, drugs, or surgery--it's diet and lifestyle changes, specifically a starch-based, vegetarian diet, moderate exercise, and eliminating the "most toxic of [your] bad habits," such as smoking.

McDougall is well known from his other books and his program at St. Helena Hospital in California, with a loyal bevy of followers who report tremendous health gains and weight loss by eating mainly bulky complex carbohydrates (whole grains, beans, legumes, starchy vegetables), no meat or dairy products, and no added oil. The 102 recipes show that this eating plan can be varied and tasty. This is no trendy diet-of-the-month scheme--McDougall includes 82 pages of scientific references that support his views. --Joan Price
