This book, with hundreds of scientific references, will convince even the staunchest skeptic that we can no longer get the nutrients we need from our food alone. On the road from the depleted and sick soils in which our foods are grown to the dinner plate, most of our food’s nutrient content is lost, resulting in a global epidemic of nutritional deficiency.
Eating well and supplementing our diet with extra nutrients can prevent a great deal of the chronic illness so common today. Despite overwhelming evidence of the benefits of nutritional supplementing, the modern medical system (which makes money from your being sick) and the media (who make money by making up stories that sell papers) make wild and ridiculous claims that supplements are dangerousyet dish out drugs, which frequently address only the symptoms of illnesses and have serious and even lethal side effects.
The simplest, cheapest and safest means to obtaining optimum health is to eat well and supplement with nutrients. As Dr Dingle explains in an easy-to-read style, fresh vibrant foods such as vegies and fruit are critical to our health, but food alone cannot supply what we need in a world full of processed food, pollution and stress.
