Listener Opinions

    " A great look at traditional diets, and the impact on disease. Lots of information about why they work, and why our current diets don't. The writing itself is a bit basic, but it tells a story. I was especially surprised about chapter on Iceland, and the low rate of depression (hint - lots of omega 3's). Next - to start trying some of the recipes! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Lipscomb | 1/30/2014

    " Great book - it illustrates the evidence as to why certain diseases are absent in certain culture. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 1/19/2014

    " This book could extend your life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bree Neely | 1/11/2014

    " Oh man. I'll never think about all the crappy food I eat in the same way again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adeline | 1/8/2014

    " A lot of the information here is not new, if you are up on your food=health reading. But I like her approach, it is very personal. She really did her research. And the recipes are good, healthy, easy and different from what you usually find. She has convinced me to eat more fish. Im trying two of her recipes tonight. Especially for someone who wants to eat better but might not understand the reasons why, or where to start, this is a great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nithya | 12/29/2013

    " Very interesting! Loved learning about food and how it can help us stay healthy (or not). Recipes were easy to replicate also. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Staci | 12/26/2013

    " A good book to serve as an introduction to traditional diets; all the recipes are at the end if you just want to try them. All the other chapters explain her experiences in checking out these places and the reasons why she chose them. Not the most extensive book about traditional diets, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ennis | 12/1/2013

    " Great facts, stories one can relate to, recipes, and information to support not just a diet plan, but fun, healthy eating "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dee | 11/6/2013

    " Bril. Not to mention fascinating. Worth buying a copy for the recipes but for the info just watch Dr Miller give her hour long breakdown lecture on the UCTV website. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 10/11/2013

    " Nice combination of nutritional information, cookbook and travel log. Very readable book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 8/7/2013

    " Loved this book. It really made me rethink what and how I eat. It is kinda neat that I personally know the author as well! :o) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darrell | 7/18/2013

    " I really liked this book. It was very much like "In Defense of Food" only approaching the topic from a different angle. Basically that places where people still eat native diets, you don't find many "western diseases" among these people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Glass | 6/9/2013

    " Interesting, combines two of my interests: cooking and anthropology. Totally trying some of these recipes out now... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa Cavanaugh | 5/13/2013

    " Pretty interesting analysis of why the populations in particular parts of the world have low incidences of certain diseases thanks to their diet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 M | 2/1/2013

    " Very interesting reading. I plan to try some of the recipes. However, some of the recipes are either complicated or required bits of ingredients I wouldn't otherwise use. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bhan13 | 10/17/2012

    " Not very well written, more science would have improved this book, and (my pet peeve) *how* could someone writing about global food confuse yams and sweet potatoes? Besides being annoying, that makes the nutritional data for the sections on Africa and Asia unclear. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 10/9/2012

    " Really, really good. As well as an in-depth look at why some cultures native diets provide them with protection against various modern diseases. And there is a cookbook at the end, so that you can incorporate the foods into your own life relatively easily. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Kelsey | 1/20/2012

    " The author was compared to Michael Pollan but her writing style falls far short. Nevertheless the information she presents is very interesting and enabled me to focus in on several new types of foods. I love the holistic approach and the clear guidelines at the end of each chapter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 8/22/2011

    " very easy and interesting read. it's nice to know that there isn't one singular way to eat healthy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 6/17/2011

    " This is an interesting book linking diet to disease in different parts of the world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 marilyn | 6/3/2011

    " I've been thinking about it pretty constantly. Don't want to return it to the library because it's got so many recipes I'd like to try! "

    " It was a almost Malcolm Gladwell like look at the cold spots for certain chronic diseases in the world.

    The author looks at diet and lifestyle as the main cause of the low rate of that disease in that region. At the end she presents a list of recipe gathered on her journey. "

    " Great information to use for myself and clients. "
