    Mixed bag- some awesome info but with a glaring oversight.

    Most of this book was enjoyable, informative, readable and well-researched. However I found Standbeck's stance on circumcision glaringly out of phase with the rest of the book and appallingly researched. She advocates letting kids eat dirt to build immune systems but think they should have an organ every mammal is born with removed at birth? She's worrying about soy but not worried that circumcision kills more babies than SIDS yearly? I would expect to see some good reasons why she has such inconsistent opinions, but sadly she points to an anecdote from a WW11 era general who makes an excuse for why he didn't reach Hitler in time by saying his men suffered lack of circumcision. Um, that's crap as an argument. A WW11 general isn't a Dr, but the American Academy of Pediatrics are, and they are against routine infant circumcision. I found her stance disappointing, and terribly argued.

    This book is a hoot! And a "Who knew?"

    Who knew a pregnant woman's consumption of soy products might result in an autistic child? Who knew there's a simple, if disgusting, control for IBD?
    This is a great book - funny, well researched, and useful. I never got into the super-clean good housekeeper role, and I'm glad to have some backup here, but still I'll be changing the way I do some things.
    Great book, highly recommended, solid research, easy to read, and often funny. I think I'll read some more of her books.
