From Wikipedia about Pottenger: "One particular question that Pottenger addressed in his study had to do with the nutritive value of heat-labile elements -- nutrients destroyed by heat and available only in raw foods. He applied the principles of nutrition and endocrinology early in his practice. Dr. Pottenger was a pioneer in using crude extracts of adrenal cortex as supplements to treat allergic states and exhaustion. In his treatment of respiratory diseases such as TB, asthma, allergies and emphysema, he always highlighted proper diet based on the principles discovered by Weston Price. At his hospital, he served liberal amounts of liver, butter, cream and eggs to convalescing patients."
The author's explain what epigenetic's is and how it affects us now and our future generations. For example, the "eggs" for reproduction my daughter has in her body right now, will possibly be my grandchildren. She inherited certain health traits from me (good or bad) and her foods are affecting future generations (good or bad) but whole, nutrient dense, organic, foods, as found in nature are out bodies best defense.
I think this book would be a great addition to anyone's library of real books about health and wellness, without the bias of big business clouding the information. I enjoy Gray Graham and I value his opinions. I also recommend this book for individuals who plan on having children or who are parents wanting to understand why our food choices are important to a growing baby.
