My Opinion (well partly the hubby’s):
Hubby is currently trying to lose some weight and suffering from arthritis in his knees. He is not a happy camper about the arthritis as he LOVES to run and he can’t right now because of the pain. When offered this book for review I thought it would be something that he would find helpful and he did. We already eat a pretty healthy diet given that we grow just about everything we eat; we know that our meat and vegetables are not full of antibiotics and pesticides. We eat a lot of vegetables (especially those blasted green beans!) and our chickens are definitely free range – just ask the neighbors.
The book has a handy reference for different diseases and what foods might be best to help with each one. Obviously food is not a cure but if eating the right foods can help – why not? Not every blessed disease is included so don’t think it’s comprehensive. It’s very easy to read and despite a few misspellings (really Reader’s Digest?) it has some very useful information.
Hubby has referred to it several times and is keeping it with his other “healthy living” books. He’s please with the layout and the information within.
