The author presents the information in a clear, concise manner and the book is written at a level easily understandable by the average person. Having attended an award acceptance seminar honoring Dr. Melikyan for his contributions in these areas as well as others, I am thoroughly convinced that the general public should be aware of these facts.
The author has a clear understanding of the chemical components in certain foods & beverages, and he tells it just like it is. I know the author personally, having taken organic chemistry from him, and he is truly a caring individual who wishes to inform the public of the injustices that are all around us. If you have not gotten this book, I would highly recommend you to get it! Dr. Melikyan conveys the truth about the chemicals we are all consuming and gives us the information and tools to change our own lifestyle.
Gagik Melikyan presents compelling concerns with regards to the consumption and use of current foodstuffs, supplements, and cosmetics while bringing needed criticism to the very federal organization that has been charged to protect us as consumers. He outlines what needs to be done and provides substantial research-based evidence to backup his claims. This book represents essential information that left this reader ready to take action, join the ranks of food advocacy groups, and apply pressure on elected officials to actuate required changes in the FDA.
The author provides the reader with the necessary background to wrestle with intellectually stimulating topics such as: what happens to chemicals when they enter your body; why tests done in a laboratory on "beneficial" chemicals are not reliable; good vs. bad antioxidants; the trend of natural food; why some of the food we consume on a regular basis should be avoided; why some cosmetics that we use over the span of a lifetime should be avoided. The topics are presented logically and the text is rich with primary resources for the reader that is well versed in science and wishes to explore the presented topics further.Read more ›
