A newly updated edition of the groundbreaking, best-selling guide to the vital link between food and health—now featuring more than 50 recipes for good health.

The first edition of Foods That Harm, Foods That Heal changed the way we view food and its impact on our bodies. More than 7 million copies of the book have been sold worldwide since then, and interest in food as medicine has only grown as researchers have continued to discover the crucial connections between diet and chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and other serious illnesses, as well as the impact of food on stress, insomnia, and other common complaints.

 In this newly updated edition, you’ll find:

*More than 100 health condition entries from arthritis to insomnia to heart disease, with quick tips on what to eat to prevent or treat each ailment naturally

*More than 170 food entries from apples to zucchini, plus simple ways to eat, cook, and store each food to maximize its healing potential

*More than 50 delicious and easy-to-make recipes featuring the healing foods

*Special features on the potential dangers of pesticides, food additives, and genetically modified crops; the many benefits of vitamin D; the real deal on high-fructose corn syrup; the dangers of mixing food and medicine; and much more


In a blizzard of conflicting nutritional claims and information, here is a book that gets down to basics, debunks many myths, and gives the reader a useful and comprehensive look at food, nutrition, and health. Based on sound science and the research of more than 300 nutritional experts worldwide, it is well organized and indexed, and will be a refreshingly clear reference for anyone who wants to know about nutrition and health (know anyone who doesn’t?). One of the best books I’ve seen on the subject.

From Booklist

Alphabetical listings in this clearly written resource span general categories of illnesses, food groups, additives, and normal life passages, such as aging. Other entries refer to specific medical conditions or individual dietary elements–from acne and alcohol to zucchini and zwieback. Each medical entry recommends helpful foods, followed by those that should be avoided. The format allows easy access to information, with entries offering straightforward advice, explanations, and answers to pertinent questions. Case studies illustrate examples of positive changes in eating habits or lifestyle that can lead to improved health. Alice Joyce
