A real eye opener on the present day nutrition guff. If you have heard of Pottenger and Price it backs up alot of their nutritional research. Puts forward the idea that most western disease is preventable (if not even cureable) if your nutrition and lifestyle is changed / improved as this can switch genes on/off which have contributed to the disease. A bit repetative at times and an American style of writing that is maybe too enthusiastic for some but if nutrition/epigenetics interests you then this is a very good read.
Pottenger's Prophecy is a ground breaking and highly informative work. Given the current state of health of most of us this book not only informs the reader of the incredible work conducted by Pottenger but takes you through, step by step, how you can radically change your eating habits to set you on the path of wellness. This will not only make you less prone to modern illness but will pass this wellness regime onto successive generations. We all live in a toxic soup and given the way most modern foods are over manufactured and altered for the sake of increased shelflife we all need to take a step back from so called modernity and re-examine how we can change our lives for the better. Pottenger's Prophecy does exactly that. A must read for anyone.
Needing to understand the If's & Why's of nutrition I bought this book after being a member of; Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation for some years. It's surprising when you learn that the answers are in yet another book, one that all teens should study at School before being inundated with so much of the wrong influences in life today. Read & learn.
