    Well researched but nothing really new

    I was using it to find foods to treat specific challenges I am having. I would say it was informative but not as "deep" as I would have liked.

    Th Best Book

    Recently, I went to Barnes and Nobles and found the book called "Food That Harm Foods that heal. It was one of the best books I have learned from. They have pretty much anyfood in there, you can look the food up and it will tell you what the good things about it and the not so good things. Also if you have health problems for example... if you had arthritis it would tell you the things you should eat and so on. I would recommend this book to anybody!

    It's a fantastic book!!!!

    This is one of the best books on food that I've read in quite a while. Any health issue you may have or just want to eat healthy, this book can help by letting you know about the good and bad of the foods that you eat. It's worth every penny.
