    I boutht this book in 1997 and still use it and have it handy all the time! i’m always trying to keep up my healthy habits and maintain a balanced diet. this book is a must have! it is written wisely and very easy to understand. it is written in alphabetical order and you can look up almost every sickness, foods, vitamins and minerals, what is good for what, what are the drawbacks and where to find them. for sickness what it is, what should you eat, what to cut down, what to avoid. etc. if you are a person like me and like to know what you eat, you must own this book! by the way i’m ordering today a 2004 copy for my mother in law who has recovered from breast cancer and is so much into eating healthy.

    This book is chock full of excellent information about foods and nutrition

    This book must have had a production overrun, because it’s selling at prices that are inconceivably low. This book is not a cheap “trade edition,” but a well manufactured, hardbound book, replete with effective illustrations.

    Regardless of price, this book is a treasure trove of information, and is an easy read. I have read this book from cover to cover But the prices at which this book is available, makes this book one os the best economy deals in tow..

    Good general discussion of nutritional aspects of food, May 22, 2018

    This is a good general market book to introduce people to the nutritional aspects of the food they consume. I purchased it to see what a friend was reading/what kind of information she was actually getting.

    As a holistic nutritionist, however, I was a bit disappointed by the constant recommendations for consuming sugar/high-sugar-foods on the suggestion that sugar will help people keep up their energy levels. (Yes, sugar does spike energy levels, but they then drop drastically, causing people to feel hungry and want to eat more sugary food).
