An excerpt from the Introduction to WHOLE
If you want to live free of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes for your entire life, that power is in your hands (and your knife and fork). But, sadly, medical schools, hospitals, and government health agencies continue to treat nutrition as if it plays only a minor role in health. And no wonder: the standard Western diet, along with its trendy “low fat” and “low carb” cousins, is actually the cause, not the cure, of most of what ails us. When it comes to our health, it turns out the trump card is the food we put in our mouths each day. In the process of learning all this, I also learned something else very important: why most people didn’t know this already. (He offers a few clues)
The medical and scientific research establishments, far from embracing these findings, have systematically dismissed and even suppressed them.
Few medical professionals are aware that our food choices can be far more effective shields against disease than the pills they prescribe.
Few health journalists report the unambiguous good news about radiant health and disease prevention through diet.
Few scientists are trained to look at the “big picture,” and instead specialize in scrutinizing single drops of data instead of comprehending meaningful rivers of wisdom.
And paying the piper and calling the tune for all of them are the pharmaceutical and food industries, which are trying to convince us that salvation can be found in a pill or an enriched snack food made from plant fragments and artificial ingredients.
The truth. How it’s been kept from you. And why. That’s what this book is all about.
I read an advance copy of this great book in January and have written this “praise” that will appear in the printed copy of the book.
Why is the most expensive health care system in the world not working? This book provides scientific “big picture” clarity amidst a sea of confusion about how commercially driven “disease management” is costing us millions of lives—while wasting trillions of dollars. Understanding how this “health care monster” operates is the first step toward creating a system that truly promotes health.
