    Since the book is over 20 years old, I am concerned that the information is now outdated. Does anyone have any comments regarding this issue?

    I feel the book has to much technical stuff bunch in together. . More just facts on different areas. Doesn’t tell you a specific diet plan. I didn’t find user friendly

    This book is incredible! The information is so meticulous yet so easily explained! If you want to know more about what goes in your mouth and how your body responds to it, read this book! It is as old as I am but has, still, an outstanding relevance! Much info. I am sure has been updated but the basics are still the same and some of the things they knew back then (food and health issues) have proven them correct by exploding! Read it! (Shipping was quick on this book, as always through Amazon, and of course, prices for item and shipping were great!)

    This author writes with ease and a simplicity well understood by the average person. The content is however quite in depth and lacks very little in terms of information to the reader. Everything you ever wanted to know is in this book! Rudolph Ballentine is a credible, well written author and the only critism is the research and statistics aren’t a little more localised. Eg. Australian statistics instead of American.

    I read this book in college when I was suffering from colitis. I was able to get rid of that because Ballentine really helped my understand food chemistry in a straightforward, easy-to-grasp way. I’m 51 now, and this book has made a real difference in my life. I’m in really good shape–most people take me for mid ’30s. No wrinkles, relatively low body fat, etc. I think the reason why i always remember this book is that the basic understanding it offers about how the body uses food allowed me to see through fad diets and infomercials. If you understand what you’re eating and how your body uses what you eat you are in control of the biggest part of your health. This is really an sleeper of a book. Ballentine was a brilliant guy who cared about other people and had valuable information to share with us.
