Description


Color cures. That's the simple premise behind this revolutionary book. While we all know that healthy eating is the key to a long life, few people understand why the natural pigments that make fruits and vegetables so colourful can help protect your body, too.

Combining their expertise in aging and nutrition, a leading scientist and an outstanding physician show readers how to prevent the most common age-related illnesses through a simple multicolored eating plan. For generations, parents have been telling their children to eat their fruits and vegetables. This book finally tells us why. Most health and nutrition books present only one view -- science, medicine, or nutrition. But The Color Code integrates all three to give readers a comprehensive understanding of the amazing health potential of pigmented foods.
