The author relates his holistic view of human health within this text. Holistic health has existed for many years in China as well as India, two great Asian civilizations that continue to this day. There is advocacy for the ordinary person to take back control of their daily nutrition and their overall health. Since some of the practices of Big Agriculture and Big Foods seem to be in contradiction to personal health, people need updated guidelines to lead them out of the quagmire that is the food market.

This book, the fifth in a mini-series, will be suitable for a nutritional or an epidemiology course, as well as for the general consumer, who desperately needs guidance, especially those of us in the industrialized western nations. Topics covered include consumption of healthy fats, freezing, and salting of foods, hot chili peppers, as well as topics involving aggression, diabetes, and ADHD.
