    I like this book because it annotates the drawbacks of what are commonly known as healthy foods and herbs, eg garlic. I take garlic raw as an antiviral remedy but didn't know that it could induce migraines. It was helpful to find this out as I had taken it in quite large quantities for tonsillitis and ended up with a severe migraine. I like the illustrations in this book too.

    This book is a must have for every health concious person. Not only it enlists the benefits and drawbaks of common fruits, vegetables and other eatables including cheese and chocolates, it also advices what to eat and what to avoid on various diseases. The book covers the complete nutritional details of food items. This is not a one time read but can be used as a reference everytime when you need to be sure about some diet. Well researched and a thorough guide for safe and healthy eating.

    Quite a comprehensive compilation. One point I observed is that this is mostly based on the British diet, and is biased towards a high carbohydrate, low fat diet, which might not beneficial for a typical Indian vegetarian/vegan diet where protein might be insufficient, and excess carbohydrates(rice is a staple food) contribute to obesity.

    WOW! What a wonderful book :) I recommend that EVERYBODY reads it in order to learn about food and nutrition, plus how our bodies actually deal with what we put into our mouths and hence our systems! I was already quite well read on this subject but this book has taught me LOADS. I do love to learn from a book. I have enjoyed every single page :) It has also encouraged me to buy and cook a few new ingredients - today I cooked Butternut Squash for the first time (I had eaten it out before). It will WOW!

It will now be bought and cooked more often. And Banana Ice-cream ... who would have thought it was soooo quick, easy and yummy (not to mention healthy!) Peel a banana and slice it; freeze it over night. Next day (or whenever) put the frozen pieces into a bowl and use your electric hand whisk to make a smooth ice-cream out of it. Final step.... eat and enjoy :) No additives and very little calories plue NUTRITIOUS :) BRILLIANT BOOK!

Not everyone can have Janice around to tell you what to do and what to eat. The next best thing is Reader's Digest Book's Foods that Harm; Foods that Heal: What to Eat to Beat Disease. It is a handy-dandy guide --very easy to follow with lots of good advice. This is a revised and updated version of a book that has been around for a long time. It is very colorful, very complete, and extremely useful as a family guide. I did not read this book cover-to-cover. There is no need of that, although I think that a purist like Janice would find it fascinating. The best thing about Foods that Harm; Foods that Heal is I can just pick a topic that I am concerned about and I can find lots of good advice about what to do or eat. Yesterday we used it because my husband asked me what the nutritional difference was between head lettuce, which he prefers, to romaine, which I prefer. I got out Foods that Harm; Foods that Heal and read to him that romaine has five times as much beta-carotene and vitamin C as head lettuce. End of one family argument. The book contains an excellent guide to food-drug interactions; useful tips for cooking foods that you don't generally eat; and what foods to stay away from if you suffer from common ailments. Additionally, it is full of fun facts. For instance, did you know that most commercial chocolate has less caffeine than a cup of decaffeinated coffee? I think that most households that are concerned about the food that they eat will appreciate having a copy of Foods that Harm; Foods that Heal among their kitchen cookbooks. I received my copy from the publicist.

    I'm a person who's a bit of a cynic when it comes to the pharmaceutical industry. If you think about it, the money is made by making patients dependent on medicine. If a cure were to be found, the profit would stop right there. As a result, Big Pharma has no real interest in finding a cure for cancer, or any other disease that now requires extended treatment. The idea that cures can be found in nature is one that's been demonized.

Luckily, the belief that the right food can heal what ails you has taken root (again, no pun intended) and some segments of society are waking up to the fact that Big Pharma only cares about keeping you sick enough to continue to buy what they're selling. If you're interested in learning about the good and bad of what's found in Nature's Medicine Cabinet, this is a good place to start.

    I was so impressed with how this book is laid out! It's easy to read, easy to understand, and easy to use as a reference at the drop of a spoon! The first section deals with how foods affect our bodies, gives new information on food safety standards, and how food can help us to heal our bodies. The second section breaks down food and their benefits and their dangers alphabetically, with info on how each food affects our health, what harms it might hold, eating tips, buying tips and storing tips.

Section three is devoted to a variety of condition and ailments and how foods can help to heal these illnesses. From acne to strokes to macular degeneration, there is information on what foods help, what foods to avoid and ideas to discuss with the doctor. This really is an all-in-one book that should be apart of everyone's cooking and medical library! I highly recommend it!

Afterall, majority of illness and disease come from food: either you're eating the wrong kind or not enough of one. Every family needs a book like this.

    This is a nice resource book if you want to know of some of the advantages and disadvantages of certain foods. It is chock full of all kinds of fruits, veggies, meat, nuts, etc. It also has a section on certain diseases/illnesses/afflictions that tells you what foods might be most beneficial for you and what you should probably stay away from.

    I learned soo much from this book! and that makes it good! One thing that I thought was important was there was no junk science..everything was from real studys and it was well researched.The book seemed unbiased when it came to controversies over certain ingredients and foods. Always a plus in my mind. I enjoyed learning about the different plant families (like a pear is a part of the rose family something I once did not know.) I was able to learn something every couple of pages. This was a gre I learned soo much from this book! and that makes it good!

    This book is very informative and easy to read. Going in alphabetical order, the book looks both at foods (listing what is good about them and what is bad), and various diseases and health disorders (and what foods are recommended and what should be avoided). It may not have the most up-to-date research. Nevertheless, as a resource on nutrition and health for the layperson, it is quite useful, and for the avid reader, it can be quite an interesting read for sure.

    An enjoyable flavor should not be the only reason for choosing the food we eat. When health is on the line, it is best to stock up on information about our food choice. This book is a valued reference material on the nutritional value and the harmful effects that food may have in an individual's various health conditions. Presented with images and graphics, I find it a helpful and necessary guide to meal planning. An enjoyable flavor should not be the only reason for choosing the food we eat.

    This is an awesome reference book. You can read about the pros & cons of any food (listed alphabetically) or it also lists lots of common medical ailments (high blood pressure, headaches, etc) and will provide foods/herbs that can help address these problems. I refer to this book a lot & am glad to have it.

    A-Z guide to healthy eating and living. Very well illustrated and clear. The book is split into easy small sections for reference, from Asparagus to varicose veins! The foods that harm and ailments sections are informative and suggest what you should take plently of and/or cut down on. The foods that heal sections point out the benefits and the drawbacks. Great book to dip in and out of.

    It was ok. A very middle of the road book, but there were definitely a few things in it that I didn't know. I didn't read it cover to cover, but sifted through it for a few days until it was due back to the library. Interesting but not one I'd probably add to my permanent collection. And yes, the typos in it are pretty bad. It was ok. A very middle of the road book, but there were definitely a few things in it that I didn't know.

    I borrowed this book from my grandmother and never gave it back (with her permission, by the way). I can literally trace my interest in nutrition and natural healthcare back to this one book.

    This may be the most looked at reference book I own. It's very nicely organized with simple references right underneath each listing. I always like to eat and read about what I'm eating in this book. It's fun and interesting. This may be the most looked at reference book I own.

    A fantastic reference for health conscious people. It give an authentic and meaningful description and valuation of different food groups and items, and how you can rightfully consume these with the aim of gaining and maintaining better health.

    Very informative on the vitamins and minerals contained in foods and what you want to avoid if you have certain disorders. A bit too conventional however. It dismisses a lot of natural healing methods and while it acknowledges controversies (like with pesticides) it largely dismisses them.

    The book had some interesting insights as to what to eat and avoid but also what foods could help with weight loss and migraine prevention. I also liked that it listed how long foods would last in fridge.
