Foods That Harm Foods That Heal

5 out of 5 stars

This is a superb book for anyone with any interest in what they eat!

Its a comprehensive A-Z compendium of foods and health problems/illnesses. It gives you a run down of all the benefits of all food, dispelling some myths, and suggests foods that may benefit/harm various conditions. It is well laid out, easy to read and the sort of great reference book you can dip into again and again. Some of the information I have not read before, and it is great to have it all in one volume. I was particularly interested to read more about the health properties of soy, especially of its benefits to young children.

    Yes, I looked at my issue – 1999. I particularly like the information about bread:

    'A recent report by WHO argues that bread's complex carbohydrates reduce cholesterol levels in the blood and help to manage diabetes'.

    'Rich in iron and vitamins especially the B complex group, bread is also a valuable source of calcium'.

    There are 2 popular misconceptions: that bread is fattening (it is not only what is spread on it) and that white bread is a poor quality bread. While white bread does not contain all the fibre and natural goodness of its wholemeal cousin, it is still nutrionally valuable, particularly when, as in Britain, it is enriched with specific minerals and vitamins.

    Stand up for bread!

  4. If wholemeal is the cousin, who is the auntie?
