The Eskimo Diet:
How To Avoid A Heart Attack
Co-authored with Dr Reg Saynor, was a major popular science bestseller in the UK. This book pioneered the concept of the omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, as the equivalent of essential fatty acids, which were now seen to play a vital role in many different organ systems of the human body. The main message at that time was the role of the omega-3s from fish and marine sources in heart attack prevention. Since then the role has been extended to include anti-inflammatory properties in the autoimmune diseases, particularly rheumatoid arthritis, and, with publication, in 2008, of Frank's The Brain Food Diet, has further extrapolated the role of DHA to reducing the risk of cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease, as well as a treatment role in depression.
