Editorial Reviews

Contemporary Time
A wonderful book...if I were forced to choose one book on nutrition from my extensive library, this would be it. Almost every chapter could have been produced legitimately as an excellent booklet, and I would have bought them all. This wonderufl book is an eye opener...highly recommended. --Contemporary Time

    The most ballanced book on nutrition

    More the 20 years ago I read this book[studied it!!] Nothing has influenced my practise more then this book.[I started studying complementary medicine ,highly influenced by this work. I still consider it to be the most ballanced book on nutrition,even if it may not contain all the latest research[which changes anyhow from day to day] I highly recommend every doctor,whatever his specialization,to read this book.
