This past year, my eyes have been opened and mind overwhelmed as I've done just the tiniest bit of research into "food" in America. From all of the hidden ingredients in many products to the genetic manipulation of plants (now fish too!), it is absolutely flabbergasting what is considered "safe" to eat these days.
Dr. Blaylock clearly indicates many harmful toxins we are exposed to from food and other sources. He uses language that is very easy to read and understand and, best of all, gives his recommendations for measures we can be taking to reduce our exposure to toxins and for measures we can be taking to treat our exposure through food, vitamins, and supplements.
There is also a very useful index in the back. I have not read this book cover-to-cover, but I have read a good percentage of it just by looking topics up from the index that I was interested in and going to the chapters that were of highest concern to me. I have learned so much more than I would be able to write in this review.
I seriously cannot recommend this book highly enough. I would give it 10 stars if that was allowed. Please read this book and then share it with someone you love!
This book has a 2006 copyright. Nonetheless, the mainstream media's nutritional talking heads are still racing to keep up with what it contains. Why has this material not all been relegated to the mainstream? As Blaylock himself notes, "Truth has become a victim of political haggling." This statement alone is enough to keep him off network television, which can never upset its sponsors by telling a truth about a product. This is only one of the observations he makes that suggest we the people are not the first consideration of lawmakers, Big Ag, and Big Pharma.
I can't pretend to follow all the biochemistry. (His credentials in this area are sufficient for me.) I just know that what he suggests works. He has improved my life and my family's life, and we are profoundly grateful. Do yourself a favor: read this book and act on it.
Dr. Blaylock, for me at least, is my candidate for today's Atticus. Yes, he's from Mississippi, next door to Lee's Alabama. And he represents what the medical profession was supposed to be at one time. The fact that he is blacklisted by every fraudulent “Quackwatch” site on the net should serve to throw a light switch illuminating just how corrupt the profession is that we have all been taught to entrust our lives with.
Find yourself doubting this? Well, he is a neurosurgeon, whether his numerous virulent detractors are willing to admit it or not, and so it's not exactly easy reading in places, but the parallels should be obvious. Give it a try, even though the book has been allowed to go out of print and you'll probably have to settle for a used copy. Same story as the Ravenskov book on cholesterol, or the Moore book on blood pressure. They don't make enough stars for the few people this courageous.
