Good for the chart
on August 19, 2013
The actual case seems plausible, references to data seem to back up the hypothesis and I personally think there is something to the idea, however the book is not very well written in my opinion and even has errors. Animal cells do not have cell walls, for example. What does 'reduced size of the brain's pool of energy mean? 'More fertile breeding ground for many viruses, including HIV, which require an acidic environment combined with low level of disease fighting antioxidants?' What?! False and just a weird statement like a scare tactic or something - I have a degree in microbiology/bacteriology and practiced for 5 years - this is a huge leap, completely wrong and way way out of context. Or at least give data to back up these rather large claims.
While it is lacking in some areas it is mostly focused on the chart of foods and there effects as well as a brief history of the studies leading up to it.
