Honestly, I didn't know what to think! I read the China Study before this one and that book stresses the importance of a high-carb diet--the exact opposite of this one! So I'll contradict both doctors: neither diet is the better diet. Every person is different and saying that ALL people should follow this ONE diet is like saying that ALL the locks of the world can be unlocked by ONE key. Some people do better with more fat/protein in their diets and other are at their optimum when they eat mainly carbohydrates. People should do what makes them be at their best.

An excellent book finally confirming more about what other researchers are saying too. The addicting power of wheat (explained) is taking over our diet. More mental illness and weight loss discouragement are a part of the result. The book contains solutions and explanations for cholesterol myths that make you think about change. The way we shop and demand more gluten free products would be encouraged after reading the science from this book. Reference charts are included.

I am looking forward to reading this book. I first got tuned into this by reading "Wheat Belly" by William Davis, MD. I thought: if any of this is true, (and I have no reason to believe that it isn't all true), then it is earth-shattering. rheafran

Hmm...; what do I make of this book? If all his claims are borne out, medicine is in for a major change. However, I find it difficult to believe that so many claims he makes have not been substantiated by mainstream medicine. The book made enough of an impression on me that I'm going to make some lifestyle changes.
