This book was recommended to me to read and it is truly mind blowing. There are pages where you are almost scared of the knowledge your picking up. For example - I know a lady who is currently undergoing chemo for breast cancer.. do you tell this person what you now know from the book (that there is another way, and chemo is possibly wasting her time (and life). Or do you send her the book?
There are a couple of niggles for me: Fruit is advocated heavily, and so is pH, as the ideal state (a body that would test as alkaline). Yet almost all fruit IS acidic and there is no way you can suggest otherwise. Most do NOT convert to alkaline in the gut. This is very much skimped over, suggesting one particular apple will convert to alkaline is not enough! Also vegetables are not really mentioned (it is certainly not mentioned as the 'super food' that fruit is. But we know that veggies are alkaline and truly good for you, in all contexts. Also - the suggested exercise given is rather outdated (we now know you don't need to be doing cardio work in hear rate zones for extended periods of time - there are more effective ways to achieve fitness, and heart rate monitor zones are (or can be) very inaccurate. Also he is at pains to tell us of the dangers of fluoride, and how we are bathing in it for half an hour or more (so what damage are we doing), and yet advocates swimming as part of our mission towards health (surely we would be wallowing in fluoride for possibly even longer?!)
If you like this book you might also love The pH miracle, and the China Study. All 3 are thinking along similar lines
