In 1994 Dr. McDougall spoke with William Clifford (“WC”) Roberts, the former head of the pathology division of the National Institutes of Health, the editor in chief of the American Journal of Cardiology, and the executive director of Baylor Cardiovascular Institute at Baylor University Medical School. Roberts discusses the prevention and reversal of heart disease, and the advantages and methods of getting one’s cholesterol down to 150, a level that he says can create immunity, in most cases, to atherosclerosis. “Most people get 40% of their calories from fat, but if you can get your fat down to 10% of calories, that’s how you can reduce your total cholesterol by 30%,” says Roberts, who adds that without medication this requires adhering to a pure vegetarian diet such as the McDougall Program.
