The missing chapter,
This review is from: The Diet Delusion (Paperback)
People who've read this will be unsurprised to learn that a great deal of material was cut out (including, interestingly, comments on the work of Weston A. Price) at the instigation of the publishers, simply because the size of the book was getting prohibitively large.
It's been suggested that Gary reassemble this material and publish it as Part 2. In the meantime, Google "Gout: The Missing Chapter".
I'm one of those who think that Gary should get the Nobel Prize for this.

I am very grateful you told me this. I think this chapter was an important one and it is strange how it was left out considering other books have over 700 pages, it surprizes me they could not add it in. It also amazes me how we are told so many things that are not the truth, in fact it gets so confusing to find what is needed. It does seem that sugars/fructose, insulin resistance are the cause of many of the disease we see in todays modern westernized eating. Countries that are following are diets are getting seriously obese, getting heart disease and cancers. It is a shame we are so ignorant, it is our responsibility to look after our own health and search for the truth. When I learn another truth it is great, it saves alot of frustration and time and effort.
But what I am wondering about is the honey and berries, tree fruits, melon, root vegetables that nature gives us is all high in fructose so, if fructose is a major cause of gout, I still have questions... Other countries that eat these foods naturally and the hunter gatherers/tribes do not have gout?

Root vegetables have very little fructose: they're basically starch. Historically people probably didn't eat fruit 24/7 - only when it was in season. Before mass production, honey was difficult to obtain, and then only in relatively small amounts.
It's all a question of quantities.
