The same author has written a book called "101 Foods that can Save Your Life" and looking at the index and table on contents of that one, I see it's what I should have purchased.
This book only makes the most scanty passing references to cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. This book may have some good recipes in it: I need to try them. But overall the focus is for readers who are dealing with specific health conditions that are not the huge, cosmic, life=threatening ones.
It may be a decent family reference. I was disappointed and will probably donate my copy to the library at some point soon. My mission is to try to find the best and most helpful books for those with heart failure, diabetes, and cancer.
