Castellano is a lot of information in this book of solutions for different ailments, which is why I was tempted to keep it. But every time I turned a page, I came across the most outdated, cringe-inducing, the food-pyramid-era disinformation, such as saturated fats like coconut oil increases the risk of heart attack, and you must have corn oil or canola oil instead . (Seriously?) Not recommended sucralose (Splenda), but says he is "metabolically inert" and would work well for diabetics. no mention of it here was originally conceived as a pesticide. Oh, and go ahead and eat that plastic "food" - margarine in a tub - because we would not want to get fat in butter ... And while you're there, stock up on low-fat dairy products (those made from fine food producers), who had all the nutrients sucked out of them. if the writer of the time that had been taken look at the latest nutritional research, she would realize all this "common knowledge" was basically propaganda, the now debunked coconut oil, for example, is one of the best food, You can give your body, but the corn oil industry was responsible for vilifying the beef their own profit. All research is out there, but despite the fact that this is "updated" 2010-series, you're nothing, you get cutting-edge technology here. expect more of the same old regurgitated BS we served for the past few decades, information, to make us a nation of fat, sick, wrong people were fed. a book that can heal itself as the gold standard of nutrition is not up to speed with the information I can find a simple Google search? This is either laziness or more propaganda. Regardless, I rate no one. 15 of 18 people found the following review helpful. Maria I have finished the third edition, with more than five million copies sold, this book is one of the most widely read texts on the dietary habits says "text", measured in inches on a good three-quarters of the thickness. Written by a dietician and a physician in good faith, that is clearly divided into three parts. Part I, a quarter inch thick covers basic principles of health and nutrition. This section lists and explains the different types of nutrients and dietary supplements. Part II, by far the largest part of the book to measure an inch and a quarter, gives us an alphabetical list of many common diseases (such as back pain or diabetes) and what you can do about it from a nutritional point view. The book concludes with Part III, the last quarter inch of the work, which is dedicated to traditional therapies and conventional treatments that can be used together with nutrition. Find information about treatments such as chiropractic, massage, color therapy, and so on, I must say, I was pretty impressed with how much information in this book, and I can definitely recommend it to anyone looking a good nutritional status encyclopedia put on his board when questions arise. In addition, the readers ideas of other types of treatments they could try out various medical problems. Other health-titles I can recommend his 5-minute plantar fasciitis solution for people who have problems with chronic plantar fasciitis. 2 of 2 people found this review helpful. Saved my life by H. Gallimore, I found a great help to my hyperthyroidism cure. Even my doctor was amazed. Now I use the nutrition (supplements, vitamins and natural foods) to treat diseases. This book is a good buy. Even if you do not have health problems, there is so much to learn about nutrition and disease and how they influence each other. For example, white sugar, white bread, white rice and favorite foods are the cancer! Enough said .... Read 37 customer reviews
