Written in conjunction with the Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida, which has been known to help cancer patients into remission through diet, this book takes a slightly scare-tactic approach, citing a few too many frightening health statistics ("1 in 3 Americans alive today will develop cancer"). However, its intentions are spot-on. To make the transition to the Institute's recommended diet (75 percent raw fruits and vegetables and 25 percent cooked foods--mainly grains and soups), it gives more than 100 recipes and a week's worth of sample menus, and even instructions on how to sprout your own seeds and nuts. For anyone truly dedicated to going beyond vegetarian to living the whole-foods way, this book is a solid, encouraging guide.
