    I was so impressed with how this book is laid out! It's easy to read, easy to understand, and easy to use as a reference at the drop of a spoon!

    The first section deals with how foods affect our bodies, gives new information on food safety standards, and how food can help us to heal our bodies. The second section breaks down food and their benefits and their dangers alphabetically, with info on how each food affects our health, what harms it might hold, eating tips, buying tips and storing tips.

    Section three is devoted to a variety of condition and ailments and how foods can help to heal these illnesses. From acne to strokes to macular degeneration, there is information on what foods help, what foods to avoid and ideas to discuss with the doctor.

    This really is an all-in-one book that should be apart of everyone's cooking and medical library! I highly recommend it!

    Highly Recommended

    This book was recommended by The Doctors on their TV program. I found it to be very informative and helpful. It has a section on diseases and what foods are helpful or harmful. All vegetables are listed in alphabetical order with all information about them. It has become a great reference and resource book. I am really glad I ordered it.

    Chapter Six Part Two

    Jack's POV We stored the rest of the rapsberries in a cache. I dusted my hands off. Chloe was staring off in the trees. I walked over to her. "What are you looking at?" I asked. She turned to me and pointed. My eyes widened. "F-fire!" I choked. At the sight of the fire, I felt myself freeze up. Oh, no, not this again! I thought. A memory washed over me before I could stop it. Flames were everywhere. My house was on fire. I was there, but I was younger. Images swirled around me, confusing. What's happening? This hadn't occured before. I heard someone calling my name and the memory faded away. Chloe was pulling on my arm. "What?" "We're going to the creek." "What about the others?" I told Lily, but I couldn't get to her. I told her and she nodded and dove behind a bush." "What about Max?" Chloe's face turned pale. "I-I don't know. He'll be okay." I nodded, but was still worred. We ran off towards the creek.
