This is a wonderful book written by an Australian GP. It looks at the Australian Medical system and how it treats disease and usually with pharmaceuticals. It highlights the value of minerals to treat common illnesses and provides information in a clear and consise way for people to use if they wish to empower themselves with the knowledge to lead a more holistic life where good nutrition plays a large part in maintaining good health. It is a large book of over 500 pages and the Biochemistry section is full on and complex but for those of you who like technical information this wont be a problem. The book challenges current treatment regimes for common illnesses and considers all of the environmental toxins coming into our bodies and the impact of these on our health. it is very thought provoking.
