Fallon, Sally., Enig, G., Mary, Nourishing Traditions: The cookbook that challenges politically correct nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats. Revised 2nd edition. Washington, DC 20007: NewTrendsPublishing, Inc. 2001. ISBN 0-9670897-3-5 Read the back cover.

Nourishing Traditions: The cookbook that challenges politically correct nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats provides high quality information on diet that your Doctor or Naturopath probably won't tell you about for some years. Builds upon the work of Dr Weston A Price author of Nutrition and Physical Degeneration.

This well-researched, thought-provoking guide to traditional foods contains a startling message: Animal fats and cholesterol are not villains but vital factors in the diet, necessary for normal growth, proper function of the brain and nervous system, protection from disease and optimum energy levels. Sally Fallon dispels the myths of the current low-fat fad in this practical, entertaining guide to a can-do diet that is both nutritious and delicious.

Topics include the health benefits of traditional fats and oils (including butter and coconut oil); dangers of vegetarianism; problems with modern soy foods; health benefits of sauces and gravies; proper preparation of whole grain products; pros and cons of milk consumption; easy-to-prepare enzyme enriched condiments and beverages; and appropriate diets for babies and children.

Over 700 recipes. Includes hundreds of high quality excerpts from books and articles on health and diet.

Ravnskov, Uffe, The Cholesterol Myths: Exposing the fallacy that saturated fat and cholesterol cause heart disease. Washington, DC: NewTrendsPublishing, 2002. Read the back cover.

The Cholesterol Myths: Exposing the fallacy that saturated fat and cholesterol cause heart disease. Buy ten books. Give copies to your family and friends, your local restaurants and cafes, your Naturopath, Doctor and Dentist, local member of parliament, and the manager of the local school canteen/tuck shop. The title of the book says it all. It could be bad for your health to think that you know everything about fats and diet.

Did you know .... . . . that cholesterol is not a deadly poison, but a substance vital to the cells of all mammals? . . . that your body produces three to four times more cholesterol than you eat? . . . that this production increases when you eat only small amounts of cholesterol and decreases when you eat large amounts? . . . that the only effective way to lower cholesterol is with drugs? . . . that many of the cholesterol-lowering drugs are dangerous to your health and may shorten your life? Dr. Ravnskov exposes the faulty premises and questionable science behind the diet-heart idea. Before you adopt a low-fat diet or take expensive cholesterol-lowering drugs, read his excellent analysis in The Cholesterol Myths. Read the back cover.

This is the book promoted by the Weston A. Price Foundation. Everybody and anybody who is interested in nutrition, or who has an opinion on nutrition must read this enduring classic.

Read the back cover.

Sugar Blues. William Dufty, Warner Books, 1975 Read the back cover

When cultures first had access to sugar on a commercial scale they probably reacted to it the same way our modern cultures have reacted to heroin and cocaine. Unfortunately we have all become so accustomed to our daily fix of sugar that few people are even prepared to conduct an experiment and totally eliminate refined sugar from their diet for even one day. Read the Sugar Blues and it may give you the courage to kick the habit. Read the back cover

Modern Medicine: The new world religion. By Olivier Clerc.

Read a review "However, it is in the field of medicine that this unconscious transposition of the religious experience -- and more specifically the Judeo-Christian ideology, myths, beliefs, expectations and hopes -- seems to have had the greatest impact. The facts show clearly -- for anyone taking the time to study them -- that medicine today enjoys an astonishing degree of undeserved credit that is out of all proportion to its actual results or promises." Olivier Clerc.

  • "Physicians have taken the place of priests.
  • Vaccination plays the same initiatory role as baptism and is accompanied by the same threats and fears.
  • The search for health has replaced the quest for salvation.
  • The fight against disease has replaced the fight against sin.
  • Eradication of viruses has taken the place of exorcising demons.
  • The hope of physical immortality (cloning, genetic engineering) has been substituted for the hope of eternal life.
  • Pills have replaced the sacrament of bread and wine.
  • Donations to cancer research take precedence over donations to the church.
  • A hypothetical universal vaccine could save humanity from all its illnesses, as the Savior has saved the world from all its sins.
  • The medical power has become the government’s ally, as was the Catholic Church in the past.
  • "Charlatans" are persecuted today as "heretics" were yesterday.
  • Dogmatism rules out promising alternative medical theories.
  • The same absence of individual responsibility is now found in medicine, as previously in the Christian religion.
  • Patients are alienated from their bodies, as sinners used to be from their souls. " Olivier Clerc.
