This book had some hard facts for me to hear but the author backs them up with research and also explains why they seem so radical based on the way that our diets have been influenced by food lobbyists. After starting this book, I started seeing a movement around the research that is presented in it. There is more and more evidence regarding diet and its impact on health--not only human health but animals too. If you are looking for information about how to eat for health, this is a great book. It gives some truths that are hard to take if you love dairy products as I do, but it gave me enough information to make me really think about what I wanted to do in my own life.
