I thought I knew most of the information in this book, but I read a sentence that improved my life immediately:  All protein is acid-forming in the body.  As a vegan, I had been taking rice protein daily for a decade.  Somehow this year I developed arthritis in the right hip, which has been making me limp for the past four months, and is painful and embarrassing.  Nine chiropractic treatments and four acupuncture treatments helped only a little bit.  After reading the sentence, I gave up the rice protein, and within four DAYS I have my leg back!  Silverstein puts emphasis on eating whole foods to get much of our nutrition.  He explains how nutrients work in the body, with abundant supplement and meal recommendations.  I heartily recommend this common sense, well organized book.
