About the Author
Since graduating from the University of Wisconsin's School of Journalism, more than 2000 of James F. Scheer's articles and columns have appeared in more than 105 magazines worldwide. Aside from writing for Redbook, Good Housekeeping, Cosmopolitan, Better Homes & Gardens and a half dozen health/nutrition magazines, he has served as editor of three nutrition/health magazines, including Let's Live, now topping 1.7 million in circulation. Twenty-two of his books, mainly in nutrition and health, have been published including Solved: The Riddle of Illness (with Stephen Langer, MD), The Best of Health, Foods That Heal, The Magic of Chia, and the Pocket Guide to Natural Health. One of his seven books in areas other than nutrition/health served as the basis for Hollywood producer David Wolper's 60-minute documentary, The Race for Space, which was nominated for an Academy Award, and later, voted the winner in its category at the San Francisco International Film Festival.
Montreal-born Lynn Allison started out writing self-help articles for local newspapers and hosting a local cable TV interview show which led to the Canadian Broadcasting System offering her the hostess position on a national TV talk show. Concurrently, she was writing alternative health and nutrition articles for Globe Communications. An offer to join Vision Cable in Tampa, Florida, induced her to move to the USA. When Globe hired her full-time writing at its headquarters in Boca Raton, she and her husband moved there. She also writes a weekly food column for area newspapers and more than 30 of her books have been published, among them Natural Stress Busters for the Whole Family, The Doctor's Quick Weight Loss Diet, Low Impact Aerobics, Brand Name Fast Food Calorie Counter, and Spice Up Your Holiday Meals. Many of her "to die for" garlic recipes appear in this book.
To many people garlic is just garlic, a flavoring that gives zest to food. To Charlie Fox, it is the difference between life and death. More than 33 years ago, while Charlie was working in his father's floor wax business, breathing toxic fumes daily, he became deathly ill. Doctors found that three-fourths of his liver was damaged and said that his chances of continuing to live were marginal. Charlie didn't like the odds, so he made drastic life changes. A raw food diet, daily exercise, pure water and an abundance of garlic rejuvenated his liver and the rest of him. Today he is noted for super-energy and stamina. He attributes his mainly to garlic. Fascinated with garlic's effectiveness against illnesses from time of the ancient Chinese, Greeks and Romans until now, Charlied noted that hundreds of modern studies validate its health value. Twenty-two years ago, this motivated him to join Wakunaga of America, makers of aged garlic, and to study intensively the many benefits of garlic. Inasmuch as Charlie has given thousands of talks on this subject, in person and on the air, throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore and Japan, he has come to be known as "The Garlic Guru."
