Description
Available for the first time in mass market paperback, here is the smash New York Times bestseller (nearly half a million copies sold) that demonstrates how food can prevent and cure more than 100 health problems -- from the common cold to cancer.

"Food -- Your Miracle Medicine" is the first fully documented, comprehensive guide to the miraculous healing powers of food. Written by an authority on health and nutrition whose syndicated column has more than 10 million readers nationwide, and based on more than 10,000 scientific studies, it reveals such astonishing, little-known discoveries as:

a daily cup of yogurt can wipe out 25% of common cold symptoms

an avocado a day can improve blood cholesterol twice as much as a low-fat diet

a third of a teaspoon of ginger helps alleviate migraine headaches.

Jean Carper shows readers how to use this miracle medicine to achieve optimum health, prevent disease, and avoid debilitating conditions, adverse side-effects, and costly medical treatments.

"There's a wealth of useful information in this book". -- USA Today

"Jean Carper is one of the most reliable authorities on ways of improving health by natural means. I recommend her books to my patients and students". -- Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Spontaneous Healing

display_description "Food - Your Miracle Medicine is the breakthrough book on food and health for the nineties. It is the first comprehensive guide, based on the latest scientific research, that reveals how you can use the extraordinary powers of food to conquer disease - everything from colds to cancer - increase your mental energy and live longer. Jean Carper, the bestselling author of The Food Pharmacy, has now translated the amazing new discoveries about the medicinal power of food into practical advice and information that you can use every day to prevent and alleviate such common maladies as headaches, hay fever and arthritic pain, as well as to ward off our major killers, including heart disease and cancer."--BOOK JACKET. "In this book you will find out exactly what you should eat - and not eat - to prevent or relieve flu and congestion, heartburn, asthma, anxiety, stress, diarrhea, upset stomach, ulcers, high blood pressure, colic and spastic colon plus dozens of other symptoms and problems. You will also discover which foods can help you survive a heart attack or stroke as well as reverse clogged arteries, combat blood clots, shrink precancerous growths and block the spread of cancer. It is an invaluable guide that proves how small miracles performed by food inside your cells become major miracles in defeating disease. The lively writing makes it an irresistible read as well as a much-needed reference for using food as a partial alternative to costly pharmaceutical drugs and medical treatments."--BOOK JACKET. "Food - Your Miracle Medicine is based on more than ten thousand cutting-edge studies by researchers from prestigious scientific institutions around the world, including Harvard, Johns Hopkins, MIT and the National Cancer Institute."--BOOK JACKET. "Here are some of their astonishing findings you will discover in this book: eating a bowl of cereal daily could prevent some fifty thousand cases of colon cancer a year; avoiding milk and cheese may cure your arthritis; a little yogurt daily may prevent 25 percent of common colds; eating fish twice a week slashes your risk of heart attack in half; garlic helps clean out clogged arteries; coffee could alleviate two million cases of asthma; cabbage can help prevent breast cancer; sweets and starches can relieve anxiety, stress, depression and PMS; soybeans have tumor-fighting properties; and an orange a day can heal defective sperm, preventing birth defects and infertility."--BOOK JACKET.
