Feeling in control is so very important to you. I get that. In a review of mine critical of one health guru I was told straight out that I should listen to this author--that it was my lifestyle that had made me sick. Yes, it poisons the patient as well--but we have the better chance of bouncing back. So I worry books like these contribute to the paranoia, the distrust of life-saving medicines.

Servan-Schreiber takes seriously T. Colin Campbell, a doctrinaire vegetarian and author of The China Study--a controversial figure but Servan-Schrieber skips the controversy. I just never got the sense in this book that evidence on the other side was considered beyond the quick dismissing of straw men. Some of what he cautions against might cause cancer, some of what he advises might be protective--my point is in the end I felt no confidence he could help me sort out which.

However, as I wrote above, at least the prescriptions themselves would do little harm--except maybe to your wallet--organic food and cosmetics, water filters Much of the advice is what any doctor would tell you--avoid processed foods, consume plenty of veggies, fruit, tea, fish rich in Omega-3, get plenty of sunshine and exercise.

No, the seductive dangers of the book are more subtle than that.
