2 1/2 years ago the doctors gave me 2 years to live ...I was 4th stage melonia cancer...I took no chemo, radation, no treatment at all....they test me every 6 months and they say they can't find any cancer. By the grace of God and God showing my wife what spices and herbs to use in a smoothie which she makes me every morning( she read this book cover to cover and researched the spices and herbs herself to make sure ). I can't say enough good things about this book.

His writing is entertaining as well as informative and makes for a truly enjoyable experience. He has also included a Repertory (a summary of health uses for each spice), which is so useful for looking up a health condition and then immediately being reminded of which spices would be appropriate to use.
Altogether, a meticulously researched and detailed exploration of spices - substances we so take for granted, yet endowed with a plethora of medicinal and culinary uses. HIGHLY recommended!!
Another interesting feature of the book is the inclusion of many easy to follow recipes that use different spices. The authors present a number of recipes from another author- Alamelu Vairavan whose book, Healthful South Indian Cooking-Expanded Edition is an excellent guide to the easy preparation of South Indian foods that use many spices.( A disclosure: Alamelu is my wife!).
It is great to know that besides making foods appealing and tasty, spices have their own great health benefits. It is time that we in the USA appreciate the value of spices, get to know them better and enjoy healthier lifestyles by using them extensively in our cooking. This book by Dr. Aggarwal and Yost will go a long way in helping the American public understand the value of spices and to benefit from the increased use of them.
