It is all in alphabetical order, with foods and conditions such as eating disorders, cancer, acne and more. Each food article contains "Benefits" and "Drawbacks". The common diseases and conditions have "Take plenty off...", "Cut down on...", and "Avoid..." with their articles. Each article shows the basis of the food and the disease. Throughout the whole book there are sections between the A-Z directory of all sorts of common foods/nutrients/conditions such as "Organic and Health Foods"; "Minerals" & "Stress". To finish off, there is a glossary and a "Helpful Organizations" list.
This book is worth more in information value then it's price value. It is like a nutrionist in your house. It is great for cooks and general people are concerned/interested for various things. It is jam packed and it is worth a good look.
It is obvious that different people need different diets, and that there is a very direct relation in diet and health. It is also true that what is good for one person is not the right thing for another. This book recommends sensible diets to aid whatever ails you or your loved ones. It is great for when you have company over and are going to serve something, because you can go, okay, my guest has high blood pressure, I know I should avoid salt...but what can I fix? Or my guest is a diabetic, so I should avoid sugars, what if the guest is hypoglcemic? No more worrying, just look it up. Also a good guide for preparing something for your family gatherings (i.e. my family has a history of cancer, what can I prepare for everyone that will help us?)
Besides what to eat for specific disorders or diseases, it breaks down all different kinds of foods telling you what the good and bad things each one and this information is very well organized, making it easy to skim through for quick reading if your interest is in a praticular food or what to eat if you suffer from a praticular disease.
You can trust what you read because it comes from recognised experts.
The book has obvious attractions and is suitable for everyone, from the family person (concerned with providing their loved ones with a healthy diet) to serious athletes (who may be obsessed with what they eat).
I just hope they release a new edition!
You will want to fill your diet with the "good" and understand why some foods are "harmful." I like the way that nutrition is discussed pertaining to certain diseases and conditions such as cancer, hair & scalp problems, kidney disease etc.
The book is also a visual treat filled with color photographs and easy to read text & charts.
