I go back and forth on this book. The problem isn't Dr. Grieger. The problem is the reliance on peer-reviewed studies. Given my own research into problems with replication, plus politics, plus funding, I'm not nearly so enamored with the world of research studies as I used to be. And unless you truly dig in to studies, analyzing their methodology, their use of statistics, etc. you will never be able to know *for sure* if the results advertised are accurate.

I think the best approach to this book (and his web site) is to treat it all as self-experimentation. He mostly deals with food products that are known and safe, so adding them to your diet is extremely unlikely to do any harm. Just don't fall into the trap of believing that a specific set of things will definitely prevent all the bad things in life. ( )

Direct and Informative

This book addresses the need for increased plant based foods in the American diet. Scientifically based with practical suggestions for improving ones health through nutrition. The premise being that most health problems could possibly be prevented with proper attention to diet. The book is arranged to specifically address common health concerns and how preventative medicine has had a tremendous impact. ( )
