Would give 0 if I could, Pseudo-science at its best.

All we really need to know is what is observable, testable, and repeatable in humans today. Origins presuppositions & speculation = lost credibility.

Fascinating information that definitely leaves you wondering if it is all true or partially true. Very well written and easy to read. I am left with the feeling that I now need to verify much of the contents. In today's world it is difficult to know what is fact and true or an exaggeration or scientific BS. I am not stating this book contents are BS, but it puts you in the middle of polarized scientists and doctors. Read it and decide for yourself. I recommended it to the people in my life.

Absolute rubbish! "Dr." Gundry should be ashamed of himself. Most of his claims have no references in peer-review journals and therefore purely anecdotal at best and pseudoscience at worst. Most concerning is how bad he misleads the readers. When he does actually cite a peer-reviewed article, it doesn't support his statement. He takes advantage of people that don't bother to check references or understand what the actual references are saying. Shameful stuff. I don't write reviews normally but felt compelled to give this the lowest possible rating.

The more I read, the more I rejected this doctor's claims. They were extreme, as was he.

Rubbish. Humans have been consuming these fruits for hundreds of thousands of years and we are supposed to believe this snake-oil guru has somehow discovered its all poison. Tomfoolery.

After being diagnosed with a very aggressive form of cancer three years ago I discovered the work of Dr. Stephen Gundry .. three years clear now and credit Dr. Gundry and his principles of eating and living for restoring and maintaining my good health! Country is a miracle worker is research is phenomenal and this book can be a lifesaver!

Did you know that 90% of folks who survive a heart attack will go back to their old habits within six months? As a heart surgeon, Dr. Gundry has seen this happen time after time. Dr. Albert Einstein (1879-1955) is reported to have said the definition of insanity is: "Doing something over and over again and expecting different results." "The Plant Paradox" will open your eyes to a better and healthier lifestyle - no matter your age or challenges. As the Nike slogan says, "Just Do It!"

wow ...all I can say is wow. I read this book the first day I got it and was amazed to learn some of the things that was in the book. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to be healthy. I have already started using it to make changes. I also use the vital reds from Dr. Grundy and they make a big difference in how you fell.
