Overview

Volume Two. Tens of thousands of scientific studies have been performed worldwide affirming the fundamental role that unprocessed, unheated plant-based food plays in the process of disease prevention and recovery. Food Is Medicine: Volume Two compiles summaries of these studies and show the healing efficacy of common foods like garlic, turmeric, berries, mushrooms, and legumes in preventing and treating chronic illnesses.

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, a three-volume series, presents evidence clearly demonstrating that the most important ingested medicine comes from the food we consume. In all volumes, the key finding of each study is summarized in accessible language both for laypeople and culinary or nutrition professionals. The studies are then presented chronologically, so the reader can grasp the evolution of findings and theories about the health effects of various nutrients and foods.
