With an in-depth analysis of 34 fruits, vegetables, spices, nuts, and other healing foods from algae to wheatgrass, this indispensable reference provides a descriptive profile of each food, its nutritional value, and its general effects on the body.

Food IS Medicine is a three volume series presenting noteworthy data from studies clearly demonstrating that the most important ingested medicine comes from the food we consume.
