2 1/2 years ago the doctors gave me 2 years to live ...I was 4th stage melonia cancer...I took no chemo, radation, no treatment at all....they test me every 6 months and they say they can't find any cancer. By the grace of God and God showing my wife what spices and herbs to use in a smoothie which she makes me every morning( she read this book cover to cover and researched the spices and herbs herself to make sure ). I can't say enough good things about this book.

I love to cook, and now I intend to diversify my spice rack, as well as use them more liberally!
You really appreciate the quality of this book when you compare it with inferior books on the topic. Other books typically provide useless speculation, typically along the lines of, "many old wives use this to cure that". It was strangely entertaining to compare different books and find them claiming different herbs/spices as effective for healing whatever ails you. Dr. Aggarwal, the author of Healing Spices, is always careful to quote studies to support his assertions. (As a researcher, myself, I would have liked to have the actual reference; however, I can live with "a study from the University of Tokyo found").
Dr. Aggarwal (who is a professor in the department of experimental therapeutics in the division of cancer medicine at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston) does provide some actual recipes that incorporate the "healing spices"; however, this is not his strong suit. If you find any useful recipes, think of them as a bonus.
I ordered this book after originally taking it out of the library. If found that I was keeping it next to my bed. Yup, this one was obviously a keeper and I have already changed my diet based on this book. If you want just one book on this topic, this book is the one to get.
When you wrote: "One should always be suspicious of science where money changes hands based on outcome," you were really speaking of our multi-billion dollar PHARMACEUTICAL industry!
Big Pharma pays billions to universities and for-profit labs to conduct studies on their drugs, seeking FDA approval. How many "positive clinical results" are influenced by that $$$?
Seven of the nine FDA Advisory Board members have direct administrative ties to the drug companies. When you compare the financial influence of these behemoths, it's laughable to poke at the few scientists who are seeking healthy alternatives (which, incidentally, cannot be patented and threaten the revenue flow of drug companies). Please, if you want to attack an industry where "money changes hands based on outcome", spend some time investigating Big Pharma.
