My perspective of this book is related to cancer. I am the webmaster of "cancertutor" and I was not going to write a comment about this book on Amazon, but when I saw several people give this book one star, I had to write something.

"Sick and Tired?" is a **SUPERB** book. I have studied more than 200 alternative cancer treatments and have pondered dozens of different theories about what causes cancer. This book provides the best foundation for understanding and linking together many of these diverse theories. It literally describes the common thread that passes through all of the best cancer theories.

Understand also that there is an intense, brutal war between orthodox medicine and alternative medicine. And yes, there really is a conspiracy that is funded with billions of dollars from Big Pharma!! If you don't understand the sophisticated tactics used by Big Pharma in this war then you need to read my article: "Introduction to Alternative Cancer Treatments". This article will open your eyes as to what is really going on.

Those who gave this book one star have absolutely no clue what has been going on in alternative medicine over the past 100 years. Their articles remind me of the articles on the quackwatch, ACS, WebMD, NCI, B.C. Cancer Agency, etc. websites. The goal of these websites is to destroy alternative medicine. They pretend to be experts and pretend to be "open-minded," but in fact they are distracting your attention from the important issues, such as what *really* causes most cases of cancer. The answer starts with the acidic soil, then to food processing, then to an acidic diet, then to the pleomorphic parasites, etc.

While there are many excellent books on the theory of cancer (e.g. "Choose Life or Death," "The Body Electric," etc.

The book does have some extra junk you might want to skip past. The pH Miracle is a better and easier read. I will say this, I started drinking Dr. Young's Supergreens and Prime pH in August of 2004. I did it after feeling cruddy after 2 miscarriages. I did start to feel immediate energy. I did not follow the diet though. 4 months later, I had some testing done only to find out that my cholesterol went from 233 to 176. I could not believe it. I ordered supergreens for friends and family. Now 40 of us are taking them. My MD and cardiologist confirmed that the product was clearly good and clearly making a difference. And then my mom's cholesterol went down substantially. Her MD had been bugging her to get on statin drugs. When she got back mom's test results, she said "oh, I see you finally filled the statin drug prescription I gave you." Mom said no, I am drinking supergreens." The Dr. said, "well, do what you must." We laughed.

Now to the diet part. It is hard to follow initially but, the times that we eat mostly green (we do eat animal protein on the diet, but in smaller amounts. White blood cells will get that bad old bacteria and frankly I like protein. but, smaller amounts made my constipation issues go away.) We try to follow the pH Miracle philosphy of 80/20 (80 good foods 20, not so great) but we keep taking our supergreens as well. We do feel really great when following that plan. My husband is a runner and was mad at me because he thought he would never get "good" food again. After 3 weeks on the 80/20 with our supergreens still in full swing, he admitted that he never felt better.

A friend said this: if you don't feel great, your body is telling you something. Most people have the "I eat all the crap I want disease." This is true.

I am an M.D. and the author of a textbook on acid-base balance (pH balance). I have also published several technical pieces in medical journals on the pH consequences of diet, and the relationship between dietary ash-acidity/alkalinity and bone disease. A friend who had just spent $400 getting a kit from Dr. Young's organization asked me to give her an opinion. I should also add that I am open-minded and have a special interest in nutrition and holistic medicine;I have no knee-jerk anti-holistic attitude. If anything, I tend to be very positive about holistic approaches to health, as I think they often have some value and often have lower risks than conventional Western medical approaches.

I focused my attention on the parts of this book that pertain directly to pH balance, which is the center of Dr. Young's theory. I read with special care the part of the book that purports to explain the fundamentals of pH to the non-scientist. This section contains basic errors that suggest to me that Dr. Young is not very knowledgable about this area; his understanding of basic chemistry seems limited. His definitions of fundamental terms such as "hydrogen ion" are poor, and his explantion of what table salt (NaCl) is and how it dissociates in water is incorrect. He gives the same pH values for blood that comes from arteries and veins; in reality, venous blood is more acidic than arterial blood.

The manner in which Dr. Young writes suggests a religious fervor that has nothing to do with science. I saw no footnotes that support his extreme views; in fact, judging by the titles of the journal articles he cites, I saw no citations in either this or another book by him that pertain specifically to the effect of pH on disease. Further, Dr.
