Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In the 1930s, Dr. Francis M. Pottenger Jr. discovered that mother cats fed a poor diet passed their health problems on to their kittens over three generations. Modern medicine, with its new knowledge of genetics, has found that this also applies to humans. Epigenetics, the study of the relationship between the environment and genes, is showing how lifestyle influences health. Nutritional therapists and researchers Graham, Deborah Kesten, and Larry Scherwitz explain this to readers and make recommendations for healthy living—eating fresh, natural, organic foods that are minimally processed; consuming the correct proportion of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats; using sustainably raised plant and animal foods and wild-caught fish; drinking clean water; and storing and preparing foods in ways that preserve nutrients. They also recommend mindful food preparation and eating. A bibliography of current scientific literature and websites offers the evidence for their theories. VERDICT Although there's nothing particularly new here, this book offers sound advice for healthy eating. Recommended for public and consumer health libraries and interested readers.—Barbara M. Bibel, Oakland P.L.
