Comments
Matthew Diggity : Takes the conclusions of some research at face value without taking the implications to the next level. For example the recommendation of fish for one purpose but without sufficient consideration of other factors taking into consideration ocean pollution.
Samantha Crawford : To be honest, when I first see this article I was both overwhelmed and a bit disappointed. My first reaction was "there is too much to read, I just want a article that quickly states what I should eat for what I want to heal." I put the book away for a couple days--but then I started looking through it and actually reading it! My attitude immediately changed. While this article has a lot of pages and looks more scholarly than I was hoping for--the author has written it in a way that is easily understandable, interesting, and most important helpful! I felt embarrassed that my first response to the article was that it had too many pages and that I didn't want to read so much.
Matthew Diggity : There are a large number of diet articles around, espousing a variety of “healthy” lifestyles, and often these are unsustainable over the long term either for financial or health reasons. Many look at such factors as calories, fat, carbohydrates and more without really considering the foods themselves beyond that. This article isn’t a diet, per se; instead, it looks at the individual foods and explains how the body uses them to heal and regenerate itself.
