Dean Ornish, M.D. has researched diet and heart disease for well
over 15 years and has found that persons trying to reverse heart

reduction in heart disease was found.
The definition of "low fat" depends on one's goals, but the rules
this Fat Free list say that anything over 15% is not acceptable for
