Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Singularly the most significant contribution to nutrition and health that I have encountered in my 25 years of medical practice..."
--Charles E. Wiley, M.D.

"...brings to light in a very readable, rational, and scientific way how the foods we eat affect our health... I've examined the evidence he presents and studied the scientific basis for this approach... I can't help but be convinced that Dr. Morter is right."
--Richard R. Knight, M.D., Rogers, Arkansas

"...nutrition information is so straightforward and so well explained that I wonder why the nutritionists have not made this important information available to the public... I have maintained a lean body weight of 12% (fat) for two years after losing 20 pounds."
--Stan Plagenhoef, Ph.D., Dallas, Texas
