I have read about half of Diet Wise to date (December 2014) and will continue to the end. I recommend it to anyone who has digestive or allergy problems or just would like to learn more about how foods affect one’s health. This book is an eye-opener as far as diet is concerned. The writer, a medical doctor who has worked with patients with serious health problems for more than 30 years, that range from OA to seeming mental disorders, is a veritable fountain of knowledge. He provides you with a detailed elimination diet as well as casebook examples of patients with serious food intolerances. He says that the only diet that’s good for you is the one that doesn’t make you sick. I am a perfect example of someone who attempted to eat all of the right foods, like spinach and broccoli and fruit. However, I am allergic to salicylate and those foods among many others are the worst offenders, along with aspirin (also NSAID) which is offered to patients routinely. . Supplements also contain allergens that many are unaware of. If you have any food related problems, read this book, it contains a fountain of information and advises how to find the source of one’s problems if related to food. The doctor starts out with the 10 most common foods that produce reactions in the majority of people and then instructs one how to deal with other food intolerances after the major ones are cleared. I found out about my allergic reaction to aspirin many years ago, but had no idea until the last few years that all the foods I loved contained salicylate. Abstaining from these foods as much as possible corrected my long standing digestive problems. I’ve read other books about food intolerances, but none as explicit and detailed as Dr. Scott-Mumby. Read it! It might change your life and most certainly your outlook on foods and all of the conventional wisdom that comes to us via the MSM and Internet sources. If I understand it correctly, one’s specific metabolism makes it impossible to eat certain foods and only complete withdrawal will keep you from reactions. Most of the books I’ve read, encourage one to try the offending foods again, but I know from experience that the author is on to something that I’ve not heard before. Read it and become informed!

Swine flu outbreak. The truth is ugly.

Unless you live on Planet Zod (somewhere the other side of the galaxy), you will know there is growing international concern, amounting almost to panic, that we are facing a deadly worldwide pandemic of swine flu. The actual...
