What you can do:
Arm yourself with contemporary knowledge and penetrating questions as you search for the best food and food supplements for you and your family. This book will help you do just that.
“Gloria and Jerre have successfully created a handbook that simplifies the essentials of proper nutrition and supplementation from the piles of information and misinformation that is out there. It’s a fantastic reference for anyone looking to improve their health while saving time and money at the health food store.”

THE NUTRITIONAL VOID CHAPTER 2: THE NUTRITIONAL VOID When science is mute or ambiguous about nutritional issues, when marketers promote foods that have more flavor than nutritional value, when consumers fail to educate themselves and their children about sound nutrition, when the politics of food overwhelm both science and common sense—and especially when all those situations exist simultaneously—a Nutritional Void opens up. It’s an empty space that fails to provide sufficient nutrients that are indispensable to lifelong vibrant health.
