We’ve been told that dairy does a body good, but the truth is that cheese can be dangerous. Loaded with calories, fat, and cholesterol, cheese can make you gain weight and leads to a host of health problems like high blood pressure and arthritis. Worse, it contains mild opiates that make it addictive, triggering the same brain receptors as heroin and morphine.
In The Cheese Trap, Dr. Neal Barnard presents a comprehensive program to help listeners break free of their cheese addiction so they can lose weight, boost energy, and improve their overall health. This easy-to-follow diet features a treasury of healthy recipes that will tame even the toughest cravings—from pizza, to lasagna, to ice cream and cheesecake.
“Our love affair with cheese is killing us. Learning the truth about cheese may save your life.”
Joel Fuhrman, MD, New York Times bestselling author
“Dr. Barnard makes it crystal clear why you’ll want to steer clear of cheese as if your life depends on it because—guess what—it does!”
Rip Esselstyn, New York Times bestselling author
“Barnard is effective in explaining how the ‘ultimate processed food’ is manufactured, and, with plenty of statistics to hand, why it isn’t healthful.”
"The Cheese Trap busts open the myths of cheese as a health food and provides an eye-opening, mouth-shutting view of the way cheese is produced and does damage.”
Joel Kahn, MD, clinical professor of medicine and author of The Whole Heart Solution
“Calories, cholesterol, salt, and saturated fat—Dr. Barnard analyzes the process and problems of cheese production and consumption in the American population. It’s no wonder that coronary artery plaque—the leading cause of death in the United States—resembles cheese in so many ways.”
Kim Allan Williams, Sr., MD, MACC, FAHA, MASNC, FESC, immediate past president of the American College of Cardiology
“This informative and entertaining book clearly and compellingly lays out the reasons why cheese should not be part of our diet. I highly recommend it.”
Ted D. Barnett, MD, medical director and CEO, Rochester Lifestyle Medicine
“Dr. Barnard shares the truth about one of America’s greatest addictions. A must read for anyone wanting to be empowered to go fully plant-based.”
