What is the Eskimo Diet?

The Eskimo Diet consists in an everyday high consumption of fish oil. The diet was published by two British physicians in their diet book “The Eskimo Diet: How to Prevent a Heart Attack (London: Ebury Press,1990)”. They were inspired by the staggering statistics of the heart attacks of the Inuit population. The heart attacks were very, very low among the world’s Inuit people and they figured out it was because of their consumption of fish oil. Apparently consuming fish oil prevents clot forming within the coronary arteries and that is what the Eskimo Diet consists in.
