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.
Your Complete Guide to the Healing Power of Raw Foods

I'm at the 75 raw/25 cooked point myself, and at 58, I'm in better health than at any other time in my life.
In Chapter 1, we read how we have exchanged, in the last century, a plant-based diet for a meat-based one, and how "the results have proven to be disastrous for our health and the environment".
The regeneration of cells is a fascinating topic (it takes 7 years to complete a full regeneration), and Mr. Clement states that "It's not added years that cause the body to age into a diseased state. It's the cell starvation that results from years of ingesting processed and cooked foods" (pg.42).
The causes and cures for many diseases are discussed, as well as depression and alcoholism, and the "Mind/Body Connection".
There are numerous food lists, and show how to combine foods for the best nutritional results and ease of digestion.
Under "Shopping for Recreational Foods", some cooked food is listed, so one can have a little "fun with food" from time to time.
There's a chapter on sprouts, and how to germinate them, and the value of doing so, as well as over 50 pages of recipes.Read more ›
Other than that, this health book is realistic, and informative.
