About this item :

Donald Gazzaniga, diagnosed with congestive heart failure, was headed for a heart transplant - the o...nly effective medical treatment. Urged by his doctor to keep his sodium intake "under 1,500-2000 mg. a day," Don headed for the kitchen and went to work. Aware that cutting out table salt is the barest beginning of a true low-sodium diet, Don devised recipes for delicious low-sodium dishes that added up to less than 500 mg. daily, 70% lower than those in other low-sodium cookbooks. The result? Don's name has been removed from the transplant list and his doctors believe that his diet played a significant role.

* Advice on finding low-sodium prepared foods, eating in restaurants, etc.
