Wow! This book is an eye-opener. I wonder why I never heard anything about it when it was first published 2 years ago? If you are concerned with your health or have relatives you are concerned about, I would suggest reading this book.

Read it. My wife's partway into it now. Mainly interested in the epidemiological aspect of it, since she's getting her PhD in molecular epidemiology. She's probably going to be researching prostate or breast cancer from a nutritional and/or lifestyle standpoint.

I've read about half of it. I want to finish it but I've been side tracked.

Every human being who eats should read this book.<br><br><br><br>
It should be made compulsory reading in schools.<br><br><br><br>
And ALL medical doctors should read it. WITHOUT EXCEPTION.

Read it. Loved it. I was especially impressed with the way he discussed how studies are constructed, and why the results of some studies are worthless compared to the results from other studies, even if they were investigating the same things. That was useful for the general reader, instead of just throwing numbers at us. (I hate books that do that - statistics are meaningless unless you know the backstory of how the numbers were arrived at.)<br><br><br><br>
It was an excellent book. I bought a copy for my parents - I told them I would not preach about veg*nism or anything, but I would ask that they read the book, if they really wanted to understand the importance of food choices. My Mom is currently reading it. (I wish I could afford two copies, because I really want my Dad to read it, but I guess he'll have to wait until Mom is done with it.)
