Dr. Joel Fuhrman has done it again! I received this book on the 22nd and read it word for word. If I had only one opportunity to pull someone out of the morass of misinformation that defines much of the advice out there I would be 100% confident that all bases were covered in this one book! With what has now been afforded us in the way of the science of food we can now make informed decisions about our own health. Self-care is incredible doable in this day and age when information such as is contained in this book is made available. Everyone should know the vital information presented. Collectively, as Americans, we have a responsibility to know. Do the right thing..Buy the book. morass: Something that hinders, engulfs, or overwhelms: a morass of details.

I bought this as a 2012 Christmas gift for a friend who has Crohn's disease. Two weeks into 2013 and as of this afternoon she said she not only is shocked to experience her "GI working again" but is completely pain free. Fuhrman's Eat to Live was brought to my attention by a a friend who'd been diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma in 2004 - and is still alive and kicking. I follow Fuhrman to fight my family's predisposition to heart disease and am happy to report being extremely healthy in every way - and I'm looking forward to reading Super Immunity too.

This has to be the absolute best diet. It forces us to face up to the over processed foods in the traditional American diet causing so many health problems today. It takes some getting used to thats for sure. Dr. Fuhrman does include some short cuts to quick meals. Its difficult sometimes to buy some of the ingredients as most produce is seasonal. However it does get you shop on the outer perimeters in the fruit and vegetable section where the "real" food is and not where the commercial food is! A definite must read!!!!!
