Why I Like this Book

  • I strongly believe in his premise that Food Equals Health
  • It’s empowering. A proactive approach to our own health by knowing about the best foods that strengthen our immune system
  • The health crisis in the U.S.—an increasingly in other countrie— is preventable if more of us take the time to learn how to eat
  • The valuable information about the nutritional benefits of the super immunity foods: greens and cruciferous vegetables, beans, onions, mushrooms, berries and seeds motivates me to find ways to eat them regularly
  • I learned about phytochemicals—what they are and why they can save our lives. “phytochemicals are non-vitamin, non-mineral components of foods that support the defensive and self-reparative abilities of the human body…Phytonutrients are provided by whole foods, and it’s the synergy that matters. The interaction of fiber, vitamins, minerals and other substances in a particular food enhance the actions of phytochemicals.”
