Newfangled polyunsaturated oils can be bad for you.
Modern whole grain products can cause health problems.
Traditional sauces promote digestion and assimilation.
Modern food processing denatures our foods but
Ancient preservation methods actually increase nutrients

"Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon is the only cookbook that I have owned, that I have used over and over again. Nourishing Traditions is no ordinary cook book. It has an excellent section on food science; and there are about 700 traditional recipes and roughly 1100 sidebars which provide excerpts from books and journals on nutrition. The information is so pertinent that I suggest you buy a copy of Nourishing Traditions for yourself and give one to a relative, another to a friend and one to your favourite health care professional."
