Essential reading for all of us - and that includes you!
on 8 February 2004
It should be compulsory for every man, woman and child in the Western world to read this. Not in the least preachy and based on scientific fact, here is the real unvarnished truth about what goes on in your body and how it affects and is affected by the mess we have made of the Earth.
It is written in an typically accessible Bellamy style with chapters on various parts of the body (Dem Bones, The Waterworks etc)and cuts straight through to what you need to know, like the fact that millions of house dust-mites that eat the forty thousand skin flakes that we each lose every day, keeps our beds and houses clean. Each section comes interpersed with boxes about a particular food and how it helps us function. You are what you eat has never been so true.
While the majority of us live our lives by `facts' urged on us by advertising companies and manufacurers, in ever increasing sterile surroundings, this is a welcome antidote. So much more than a herbal.
