Book Summary:

From the physician behind the wildly popular NutritionFacts website, How Not to Die reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death. The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. In How Not to Die, Dr. Michael Greger, the internationally-renowned nutrition expert, physician, and founder of NutritionFacts.org, examines the fifteen top causes of premature death in America-heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson's, high blood pressure, and more-and explains how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can sometimes trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches, freeing us to live healthier lives. The simple truth is that most doctors are good at treating acute illnesses but bad at preventing chronic disease. The fifteen leading causes of death claim the lives of 1.6 million Americans annually. This doesn't have to be the case. By following Dr. Greger's advice, all of it backed up by strong scientific evidence, you will learn which foods to eat and which lifestyle changes to make to live longer. History of prostate cancer in your family? Put down that glass of milk and add flaxseed to your diet whenever you can. Have high blood pressure? Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypertensive drug-and without the side effects. Fighting off liver disease? Drinking coffee can reduce liver inflammation. Battling breast cancer? Consuming soy is associated with prolonged survival. Worried about heart disease (the number 1 killer in the United States)? Switch to a whole-food, plant-based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not just to prevent the disease but often stop it in its tracks. In addition to showing what to eat to help treat the top fifteen causes of death, How Not to Die includes Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen -a checklist of the twelve foods we should consume every day.Full of practical, actionable advice and surprising, cutting edge nutritional science, these doctor's orders are just what we need to live longer, healthier lives.

Book Summary:

Licensed nurse, Sonia Russell, LPN is recognized as a leading expert in hCG diet research and weight loss safety. Many dieters have claimed to be weak, tired, complain of hunger, frequent headaches and hair loss on the original 500 calorie VLCD. The HCG Diet 800 Calorie Protocol was developed from years of patient data obtained in the clinical setting to provide the dieter with a safer, effective and more comfortable plan. The 800 Calorie Protocol includes the use of vitamins and minerals, adding breakfast, more protein sources, an extra fruit serving, and more food choices. The results have shown to yield the same, if not better weight loss when compared to the original 500 calorie protocol. The modified version also includes an improved phase 3 stabilization plan by removing certain foods that many dieters have been known to overindulge upon. The 800 Calorie Protocol teaches the principals of eating clean by prohibiting canned and processed foods, fat free/sugar free store bought foods or products containing preservatives, flavor enhancers, pesticides, herbicides, sugar substitutes, corn syrups or hormones. The dieter will learn healthier ways to grocery shop, read food labels, and prepare and cook healthier foods. The HCG Diet 800 Calorie Protocol Second Edition contains detailed updates to each phase of the 800 Calorie Protocol including new stall breaking techniques, egg white protein alternatives, approved breakfast protein shakes, updates to the phase 2 food guide, phase 2 allowable water veggies, more delicious phase 2 and 3 recipes, sample menus for phases 2 and 3, a detailed phase 3 stabilization plan, dieter testimonials, all required hCG essentials, updated hCG diet FAQ's, recommended supplements, calorie counting charts, and exercise routines.

Book Summary:

Obesity is the materialisation of a frightening internal struggle, and loss of control with your eating. It is a battle fought and lost with food each day. Being overweight is about being overwhelmed by food. Food has become the nurturing internal carer, a substitute parent which offers sustenance at a damaging price. Compulsive eating, comfort eating, yo-yo dieting, mindless eating and eating to soothe stress, become the easy option in a desperate attempt to fill a vast emptiness inside that seems insatiable and has very little to do with hunger. Throughout childhood and the pressures of our environment we can lose sight of ourselves because of the need to find love and attachment in security. The secret of our true identity lies within the realms of the child within. Reaching that lost child and reclaiming that innocence and spontaneity will, I believe, take you towards your true self and then onto a journey of self care and self love which, although challenging gives new insights into how to manage around food.

Book Summary:

It’s a Sin to Be Boring is a biographical-historical fiction that unravels the complexity of a family, where the actions of one touch the lives of others. The main character, Rebelle Palatine, born in Ohio, marries her high school sweetheart during World War II. While she yearns for the war to be over, she achieves her perfect job—modeling at a major department store in New York City. Only one thing throws a roadblock to her happiness—specifically the Battle of the Bulge. The contemporary political influences that constrain and mold the environment burrow like worms into the everyday workings of life. The family story unfolds. The Progressive movement, a political cancer that eats away at the American dream of liberty and freedom, runs parallel to the actions of those individuals who understand and protect the Constitution. Through the shadows of destruction rises a life of success, self-reliance, responsibility, and love. It’s a Sin to Be Boring opens a window on history and a reminder that actions have consequences.

Book Summary:

This is a history of my relationships from childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. As a black man in America, I was forced to take God and my world around me seriously because I came from a dysfunctional background. I was the youngest of six children of my absent biological father, who I felt did not care for the five black sons he created. My book deals with all factual encounters with reference to my understanding of my relationships. It is important for me to explain to the world that God had my back when I left my home at a tender age to attend this prestigious university. I had no family whatsoever in the Chocolate City, and I was only twenty going on twenty-one by myself. These are my memoirs, my history, and my experiences that God helped me write. I believe I can change the way we look at relationships because many black people in America come from dysfunctional backgrounds, such as a single-parent household. My mother was the father and mother to six children: five boys and one girl. God was clearly in this equation. My book will bring more people together with reference to their newfound relationships. The key to a successful relationship is getting to know a person first before anything else happens, such as sex. In short, there are no perfect persons on earth, and there is no Utopia on earth, so the person you meet may not be the person that is meant to be with you. There should always be a six-month dating period. My book expresses the importance of getting to know their baggage before you make a commitment. My book is the history of my relationships that God allowed me to experience to grow as a black man in America.

Ravenous: Otto Warburg, the Nazis, and the Search for the Cancer-Diet Connection

Book Summary:

The extraordinary story of the Nazi-era scientific genius who discovered how cancer cells eat—and what it means for how we should. The Nobel laureate Otto Warburg—a cousin of the famous finance Warburgs—was widely regarded in his day as one of the most important biochemists of the twentieth century, a man whose research was integral to humanity’s understanding of cancer. He was also among the most despised figures in Nazi Germany. As a Jewish homosexual living openly with his male partner, Warburg represented all that the Third Reich abhorred. Yet Hitler and his top advisors dreaded cancer, and protected Warburg in the hope that he could cure it. In Ravenous, Sam Apple reclaims Otto Warburg as a forgotten, morally compromised genius who pursued cancer single-mindedly even as Europe disintegrated around him. While the vast majority of Jewish scientists fled Germany in the anxious years leading up to World War II, Warburg remained in Berlin, working under the watchful eye of the dictatorship. With the Nazis goose-stepping their way across Europe, systematically rounding up and murdering millions of Jews, Warburg awoke each morning in an elegant, antiques-filled home and rode horses with his partner, Jacob Heiss, before delving into his research at the Kaiser Wilhelm Society. Hitler and other Nazi leaders, Apple shows, were deeply troubled by skyrocketing cancer rates across the Western world, viewing cancer as an existential threat akin to Judaism or homosexuality. Ironically, they viewed Warburg as Germany’s best chance of survival. Setting Warburg’s work against an absorbing history of cancer science, Apple follows him as he arrives at his central belief that cancer is a problem of metabolism. Though Warburg’s metabolic approach to cancer was considered groundbreaking, his work was soon eclipsed in the early postwar era, after the discovery of the structure of DNA set off a search for the genetic origins of cancer. Remarkably, Warburg’s theory has undergone a resurgence in our own time, as scientists have begun to investigate the dangers of sugar and the link between obesity and cancer, finding that the way we eat can influence how cancer cells take up nutrients and grow. Rooting his revelations in extensive archival research as well as dozens of interviews with today’s leading cancer authorities, Apple demonstrates how Warburg’s midcentury work may well hold the secret to why cancer became so common in the modern world and how we can reverse the trend. A tale of scientific discovery, personal peril, and the race to end a disastrous disease, Ravenous would be the stuff of the most inventive fiction were it not, in fact, true.

Book Summary:

This book is not intended to be read like a novel but, as an inspiration, and encouragement on your journey towards a path of healing. And also, my hope is that, as you read through these pages, they will serve as a guide along your path to acquiring more balance on your journey towards a healthier you! You will also find why I’ve felt inspired for years to put in writing my answers to the questions people often ask me. After working in the Alternative Care World (as a massage therapist for a total of 16 years, in-which seven of those years includes working in an alternative care clinic), this is a work I feel needs to be out there for people who are looking for guidance concerning their health issues when their health care provider is not meeting up to their standards. For I am one of “those people” who happens to be very sensitive to the type of substances that are taken internally whether it is through “Holistic health care” or “Western Medicine” supplementation, and especially “holistic” supplementation in the form of IV’s or injections, which I have been there and done that by having the opportunity to experience the “alternative care world,” first hand it is what forced me to figure it out... about how an extra sensitive person such as myself was to Survive Lyme & West Nile! I also wrote this book for those individuals who are at wit’s end (as I was) due to not knowing what direction to go next, and for those who haven’t even heard about some of the alternative routes that are out there (other than the “big name” companies) due to not having the available necessary funding that is needed to support a clinic, and to make their voice heard through marketing strategies about their ideas and abilities to help ailing individuals in search of the best solutions concerning their medicinal needs. Then on the flip side... many of these “gifted healers” prefer to work alone in their quiet little unique offices. I have added charts I find very helpful for helping others as well as Self-help Techniques and Protocols for Parasitic infections, SIBO (Sm. Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth), Lyme and West Nile Disease, along with instructions of how to help relax the ileocecal valve and simple acupressure points that may help with Headaches, Migraines, Insomnia, and helping to acquire the “feeling of wellness taking place.” I will also share with you my personal experience with acugraphs (measures the energies of the meridians), and Live and Dry blood (microscopy) results. You will also find information on my inspired Nerve Tissue Release Technique (NTRT) and contact information about classes that Dr. Troy Crane (chiropractor practitioner) in Burley, Idaho, (who has been one of my mentors since I have received my Massage Therapy Certification) and I will be offering to those of you who would like to learn a technique that may possibly help your loved ones as well as yourself, who suffer from Illnesses, Pain, Headaches, Migraines, Sciatica, and possibly even pinched nerve damage, and may also help to release those tender acupressure points, that correlates with the issues listed above, with the intentions of helping you bring your body into balance, allowing it to heal on a grander scale. May All Your Days Be Blessed with Love, Peace, Health, & Abundance Kathy Gaa LMT,CBCP (license Massage Therapist & certified Body Code practitioner) I am petitioning all Body-Workers who have these skills, and who are “Passionately Dedicated” in helping and learning “my format” to help battle against Lyme & West Nile, you may send your business contact information to me. I will add you to a business directory on my website for the people who are looking for a Therapist in their area that uses the modalities listed above. Let’s Work as a Team to Help Fight the battle of pain and suffering from Lyme and West Nile.

Book Summary:

This book draws upon thinking about the work of the dead in the context of deindustrialization—specifically, the decline of the textile industry in Kaduna, Nigeria—and its consequences for deceased workers’ families. The author shows how the dead work in various ways for Christians and Muslims who worked in KTL mill in Kaduna, not only for their families who still hope to receive termination remittances, but also as connections to extended family members in other parts of Nigeria and as claims to land and houses in Kaduna. Building upon their actions as a way of thinking about the ways that the dead work for the living, the author focuses on three major themes. The first considers the growth of the city of Kaduna as a colonial construct which, as the capital of the Protectorate of Northern Nigeria, was organized by neighborhoods, by public cemeteries, and by industrial areas. The second theme examines the establishment of textile mills in the industrial area and new ways of thinking about work and labor organization, time regimens, and health, particularly occupational ailments documented in mill clinic records. The third theme discusses the consequences of KTL mill workers’ deaths for the lives of their widows and children. This book will be of interest to scholars of African studies, development studies, anthropology of work, and the history of industrialization.

Book Summary:

My life seems to have two main chapters. BF and AF: Before Food and After Food. Before food became my occupation and passion, my life consisted of aimless years of depression, drug abuse and dissatisfaction as a computer salesperson. After my recovery in the controversial Synanon community, I chose a new life empowered by baking bread and expanded into a rich career of inventing desserts. I knew nothing about what I was doing but I loved the journey and created a life filled with a new kind of pleasure and passion. My career began afresh at age 40 and has included owning two bakeries and being the CEO, chairman and Chief Food Inventor at Real Foods Baking that has served some of America’s top restaurants. Along the way, I have learned the value in taking risks, trusting your intuition and doing what truly makes you happy. I'm writing this biographical cookbook to give people some amazing recipes and to hopefully inspire others to live life fully. I have a catalog of over 1500 recipes that people have been begging for me to share for years. This cookbook includes some of my favorite baked goods from whole-grain bread, muffins, cookies, brownies, scones & cakes. My hope is that you will enjoy savoring the recipes and be encouraged to live the sweet life. Quote from Christmas Spirit Pays Dividends for Couple Who Started Broke: “You don’t usually come across many true success stories about ex-addicts. About the best you can hope for in many cases that they haven’t been thrown in jail lately. By any standard, however, Bob Deal qualifies as one of those who’s managed to beat the odds.” “The first thing is to step out of character. Be willing to take a chance. Take a road where the end is unknown. Don’t play it safe and try to hold on to your old job. That’s like saying you think you’re going to fail.” – Bob Deal on how to start a business

Book Summary:

The loss of a loved one is one of the most painful experiences that most of us will ever have to face in our lives. This book recognises that there is no single solution to the problems of bereavement but that an understanding of grief can help the bereaved to realise that they are not alone in their experience. Long recognised as the most authoritative work of its kind, this new edition has been revised and extended to take into account recent research findings on both sides of the Atlantic. Parkes and Prigerson include additional information about the different circumstances of bereavement including traumatic losses, disasters, and complicated grief, as well as providing details on how social, religious, and cultural influences determine how we grieve. Bereavement provides guidance on preparing for the loss of a loved one, and coping after they have gone. It also discusses how to identify the minority in whom bereavement may lead to impairment of physical and/or mental health and how to ensure they get the help they need. This classic text will continue to be of value to the bereaved themselves, as well as the professionals and friends who seek to help and understand them.

Book Summary:

The author of this paper, Ewa Dąbrowska, M.D., Ph.D., is one of the very few doctors in Poland who have come to understand that the main cause of common and diverse degenerative diseases (also called “diseases of affluence”) is long-term overfeeding and improper nutrition in general; that the only truly effective, causal drug in this case will be a fasting or semi-fasting diet, which in its various forms is also called fasting.Medicinal fasting has been known and used in medicine since ancient times and it was not until the 19th century that the rapid development of chemotherapy led to their abandonment, with the rapid spread of pharmaceutical drugs which, while removing only the symptoms, do not affect the very essence of the disease, yet often additionally poison the organism.

Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of Us

Book Summary:

From the national bestselling author of Racing Weight, Matt Fitzgerald exposes the irrationality, half-truths, and downright impossibility of a “single right way” to eat, and reveals how to develop rational, healthy eating habits. From “The Four Hour Body,” to “Atkins,” there are diet cults to match seemingly any mood and personality type. Everywhere we turn, someone is preaching the “One True Way” to eat for maximum health. Paleo Diet advocates tell us that all foods less than 12,000 years old are the enemy. Low-carb gurus demonize carbs, then there are the low-fat prophets. But they agree on one thing: there is only one true way to eat for maximum health. The first clue that that is a fallacy is the sheer variety of diets advocated. Indeed, while all of these competing views claim to be backed by “science,” a good look at actual nutritional science itself suggests that it is impossible to identify a single best way to eat. Fitzgerald advocates an agnostic, rational approach to eating habits, based on one’s own habits, lifestyle, and genetics/body type. Many professional athletes already practice this “Good Enough” diet, and now we can too and ditch the brainwashing of these diet cults for good.

Book Summary:

Smart phones, tablets, Facebook, Twitter, and wireless Internet connections are the latest technologies to have become entrenched in our culture. Although traditionalists have argued that computer-mediated communication and cyberspace are incongruent with the study of folklore, Trevor J. Blank sees the digital world as fully capable of generating, transmitting, performing, and archiving vernacular culture. Folklore in the Digital Age documents the emergent cultural scenes and expressive folkloric communications made possible by digital “new media” technologies. New media is changing the ways in which people learn, share, participate, and engage with others as they adopt technologies to complement and supplement traditional means of vernacular expression. But behavioral and structural overlap in many folkloric forms exists between on- and offline, and emerging patterns in digital rhetoric mimic the dynamics of previously documented folkloric forms, invoking familiar social or behavior customs, linguistic inflections, and symbolic gestures. Folklore in the Digital Age provides insights and perspectives on the myriad ways in which folk culture manifests in the digital age and contributes to our greater understanding of vernacular expression in our ever-changing technological world.

Book Summary:

Reclaim your time, money, health, and happiness from our toxic diet culture with groundbreaking strategies from a registered dietitian, journalist, and host of the Food Psych podcast. 68 percent of Americans have dieted at some point in their lives. But upwards of 90% of people who intentionally lose weight gain it back within five years. And as many as 66% of people who embark on weight-loss efforts end up gaining more weight than they lost. If dieting is so clearly ineffective, why are we so obsessed with it? The culprit is diet culture, a system of beliefs that equates thinness to health and moral virtue, promotes weight loss as a means of attaining higher status, and demonizes certain ways of eating while elevating others. It's sexist, racist, and classist, yet this way of thinking about food and bodies is so embedded in the fabric of our society that it can be hard to recognize. It masquerades as health, wellness, and fitness, and for some, it is all-consuming. In Anti-Diet, Christy Harrison takes on diet culture and the multi-billion-dollar industries that profit from it, exposing all the ways it robs people of their time, money, health, and happiness. It will turn what you think you know about health and wellness upside down, as Harrison explores the history of diet culture, how it's infiltrated the health and wellness world, how to recognize it in all its sneaky forms, and how letting go of efforts to lose weight or eat "perfectly" actually helps to improve people's health—no matter their size. Drawing on scientific research, personal experience, and stories from patients and colleagues, Anti-Diet provides a radical alternative to diet culture, and helps readers reclaim their bodies, minds, and lives so they can focus on the things that truly matter.

There are not many areas that are more rooted in both the biological and social-cultural aspects of humankind than diet and nutrition. Throughout human history nutrition has been shaped by political, economic, and cultural forces, and in turn, access to food and nutrition has altered the course and direction of human societies. Using a biocultural approach, the contributors to this volume investigate the ways in which food is both an essential resource fundamental to human health and an expression of human culture and society. The chapters deal with aspects of diet and human nutrition through space and time and span prehistoric, historic, and contemporary societies spread over various geographical regions, including Europe, North America, Africa, and Asia to highlight how biology and culture are inextricably linked.
