Food: Your miracle medicine is a small paperback that's extremely affordable and packed to the brim with information. Sometimes the best things come in small packages; thankfully Carper's effort is no different.

Broken up into systems, such as cardiovascular and digestive, she covers the most basic of complaints with reasonable food and dietary suggestions. This isn't another one of those common sense guides just published to make a book, however, for there was plenty in here I didn't know, and that most people don't. An added bonus is much of this is backed by the latest research, amazing findings, and also personal experience. She has many guest quotes of experts throughout the text. Beyond that, it's very easy to understand, perfect for the beginner, and even perfect for nutritionists who just enjoy the journey of learning.

It all wraps up with food connections you should know about, such as the relationship findings between lupus and fish, a listing of calorie burning foods that promote healthy metabolism, and foods that stiffle the urge to cut the smoking habit. We even get a section on using drugs in foods to stay healthy, such as natural antibiotic sources, antidepressant, carminatives, etc.

While it may not be the ultimate nutritionist guide out there, the amazing effort to cram this much useful knowledge into such a small book is extraordinary. I see from the cover it was a New York Times best seller, and rightfully so. Great work here, something everyone needs to know, no matter where your interests lie. Not unrealistic or glitzy and glamorous, each section is backed up with enthusiasm, facts, and further resources for doing your own research.

Yet another affordable, small paperback offers a wealth of knowledge. Food, your miracle medicine covers a huge amount - from the cardio system to diabetes. Thankfully she covers even the most serious topic, while including the more minor ones. Backed up with much research, studies, and theories, the text is fascinating, makes sense, and I'm sure works.

Good helpful introduction but largely redundant in the overall text. Seems like a nice reference book more than something you would actually read. ( )
