VERY INFORMATIVEUser Review - renewyou - Overstock.com
Information in this book was a revelation. Helping to point out how to balance nutrition for the modern out of control diet. It helped with understanding alternatives and the problem with today prepared fast foods and gets back down to basics of good nutrition. Read full review
great tasting recipes, scientifically sound! contrary to most nutritional info out there.
Our ancestors were much healthier and stronger than we are, they also lived longer.
That changed with the agricultural revolution a bit and the hard blow came with the industrial revolution. Now we have heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis etc.
Using the recipes and info in this book will get you your desperately needed nutrients again.
