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 manufacturing food companies seem to produce packaged foods which are not recommended by the World Health Organization, people need filtered knowledge and wisdom, to help them make informed decisions regarding the foods they are consuming.

This book, the sixth 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 big cities of western nations as well as developing countries. Topics covered in this include consumption of amaranth grains and greens, tofu and soy, well-cooked chicken, as well as topics involving drugs, cancer, and viral diseases.
