    Strongly recommend but . . .

    There is a lot of good information in this book with plenty of science to back it up. But, the presentation is a turnoff to an analytical mind. The endless testimonials are a turn off. When you have good science, testimonials not only are not necessary, they make it a less professional presentation. Additionally, it is repetitive. A good editor and proofreader could do great things with a new edition.

    Clear, concise, and informative resource

    The book strikes a great balance between biological/medical information, taking action, and utilizing recipes. I would highly recommend it for anyone interested in an anti-inflammation diet/lifestyle.

    Inflammatory Truth

    Inflammation IS the cause of many illnesses and ailments. My child and my mother are living proof that ridding your body of inflammation helps your body to heal itself. I agree with most of what's in this book, but would suggest George's Aloe Vera as a substantive anti-inflammatory that every one should have every day.
