Food Pharmacy by Jean Carper

Book Description

Onion as a heart drug? Broccoli to prevent cancer? Garlic to prevent blood clots? THE FOOD PHARMACY shows how simple foods, consumed by us all, can be used in the fight against ill-health. Once considered folklore, the discoveries being pioneered by our leading scientists are proving that food is our largest and most complex pharmacy. Jean Carper outlines how each food behaves as a drug and how best to use them. Brimming with important revelations and practical advice, THE FOOD PHARMACY takes the most healthful and healing foods available in your local supermarket and shows us how we can take charge of our health: Eating cabbage, raw or cooked, only once a week may cut your chances of colon cancer by sixty-six percent; honey helps heal wounds and is also an effective cure for diarrhoea.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » After years of fearing meat, sugar, alcohol, additives, and the rest, it's good to hear of the disease-preventive properties of foods. To date, Mark Bricklin's various Natural Healing books have been the bibles for this message; but Carper goes beyond their conventional natural-foodists' position: According to the findings here reported, not only yogurt, whole grains, garlic, fish, soybeans, and the like can help fight cancer or lower cholesterol and blood pressure; even sugar, green tea, wine, and coffee have their beneficial properties. As for olive oil, that wonderful food is "good for the heart, reduces bad LDL cholesterol and raises good HDLs, thins the blood, contains chemicals that retard cancer and aging, lowers blood pressure, and lowers risk of death from all causes." That all of this is presented in an uncritical, gee-whiz, effusive pop manner (writing of fiber, Carper tells us that "things get pretty exciting" in the colon, where "some chemical shenanigans" take place) may prompt readers to add a grain of that formerly forbidden salt to their revised expanded diets. Still, there is an avid audience for the message, and it's worth a hearing. (Kirkus Reviews)
