From Amazon Customer Reviews:

“Really, only takes a couple nights. It’s remarkable the information that is contained within. Really makes you stop and think about the food we eat. I continue to make different choices since reading this book.”
—Mazoo

“As a Certified Clinical Nutritionist who thinks “outside the box” this is one of the best books for the “real” nuts and bolts, so to speak, to restore your health so that you may thrive instead of just survive.”
—Burkey

“For years many Boomers have periodically read articles or books by various individuals—some MD’s and some politicians or other professionals—talking about the problems with trusting the FDA and what it is doing to or with America’s food and water supplies and to the citizenry with its diet pyramids and approval or nonapproval of supplements. Those who are cautious and think those in power can’t really be all that bad or nonprotective of us have often wondered if these criticisms we have read are correct, particularly if we have never read or had access to a clearly and concisely written early history of the USDA, FDA, and US Govt’s role in such affairs. In my opinion this booklet offers a clear, concise history and has the virtue of being honest right up front in saying that the author does not claim to know anything for certain, is relying on sources that may or may not be or be proven fully accurate with time as regards nutrition, as we are all learning. The history she has presented and sources it is based upon might well be or prove the most accurate part as what diet to pursue is more controversial in today’s complex world. If you want to know the insidious role the US Govt and its USDA, FDA has wound up playing in our food and water supplies right from the beginning, this is the book for you! I have read Ralph Nader and other people concerned about these things in more recent times, but this “retro” approach was a shocker and gives credence to those who have written in more recent times about an insidious role. Furthermore, some of the issues that arose decades ago are ongoing and affecting us all today. I am tempted to say this booklet should be mandatory reading in high school with some helpful instruction there that counters pursuing the diet suggested willy nilly as diet is best discussed with a physician and nutritionist.

—A day later—I got back on the web specifically to do all I can to endorse the reading of this easily read book. I don’t want an ad homimum (attack on a person) argument left by one reviewer to continue to dissuade others from studying this book if there is any chance of that. Of special interest beyond the aforementioned history of the FDA and federal govt’s role in our modern disease culture, is the explanation of whole vitamins vs. synthetic vitamins of of how and why the latter—which are currently the only kind recognized by MD’s and researchers in studies—often do great harm. The sections on natural food and soil and the relationship are also most informative. The recommended diet includes only healthy organic foods and animal proteins from properly raised animals and is cited from the work of a pair of MD’s well-known for using a high protein diet to control insulin and a useful warning about going on the diet without talking with an MD first is included. It is chiefly the diet part of the book that I feel readers need to handle with their own cautions as diet is quite individual when medical conditions are involved and sometimes even when there are no obvious medical issues. This is an author who likes the Eades, Taubes, Sears works on diet, pointing out what’s good that each said. Finally, the book is actually quite riveting as well as being just under 100 pages long, so it is a good primer, as one has said, for anything mroe indepth a person might want to read later.”
