Eat Right-Electrolyte: A Nutritional Guide to Minerals in Our Daily Diet Hardcover – December 5, 2005
"This book helps to set the record straight about minerals and their affect on health, an important yet frequently overlooked part of well-being."
-The Plain Dealer(Cleveland, OH)
"Dr. Hawkins's book will convince Americans to cut back on processed foods loaded with salt and eat more natural foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains that can restore a proper electrolyte balance in the body and go a long way toward reversing many of the most common health problems that plague so many Americans today."
James J. Kenney, Ph.D., R.D., F.A.C.N.
Nutrition Research Specialist, Pritikin Longevity Center
"[P]rovides an accurate summary of important scientific studies and their impact on reversing illnesses that may be diet-related."
Neal D. Barnard, M.D.
President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
"Hawkins fairly reviews and presents the accumulated scientific evidence showing that high-salt diets increase blood pressure and that diets high in salt, high in protein, and low in fruits and vegetables increase urinary calcium excretion rates and cause calcium losses from bone, thus contributing to the formation of calcium-containing kidney stones and to osteoporosis. He also points out the lack of critical data to support the benefit of various currently popular diets."
Jacob Lemann Jr., M.D.
Clinical Professor of Medicine, Nephrology, Tulane University

Diane C. Donovan
Last time I lost weight, I still had problems with my blood pressure.
The advice for me to reduce protein, increase fruits & vegetables, lower fat and reduce sodium to 1500 mg was god sent.
I'm following a 1600 calorie diet using the Dash 2001 1500 sodium as a core. The weight's coming off and it's the healthiest diet I've been on in my life.
I'm so glad I found this book. Other than this, I'm using the Diet Power software to track my nutrition.
