Front Cover
Pocket, 2000 - Diet in disease - 367 pages
Onion as a heart drug? Broccoli to prevent cancer? Garlic to prevent blood clots? THE FOOD PHARMACY shows how simple foods, consumed by us all, can be used in the fight against ill-health. Once considered folklore, the discoveries being pioneered by our leading scientists are proving that food is our largest and most complex pharmacy. Jean Carper outlines how each food behaves as a drug and how best to use them. Brimming with important revelations and practical advice, THE FOOD PHARMACY takes the most healthful and healing foods available in your local supermarket and shows us how we can take charge of our health: Eating cabbage, raw or cooked, only once a week may cut your chances of colon cancer by sixty-six percent; honey helps heal wounds and is also an effective cure for diarrhoea.
