Nutrition

"He who does not know food, how can he understand the diseases of man?
~ Hippocrates, the father of medicine (460-357 BC)

"It will be in the field of nutrition that some of our greatest strides in the prevention of disease will yet come. Here preventative medicine reaches its zenith, since food has to do with the very essence of life itself. It is the fuel that maintains, repairs, and runs the human machine. It is the source of the material needed to keep the body tissue healthy, vigorous, and free of sickness."
~ J. Wayne McFarland MD, Fellow of the Mayo Clinic

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." ~ Thomas Edison

Heart disease kills 40% of Americans, more than those killed by any other injury or ailment.  Every 24 hours 3000 Americans will have a heart attack.   ~ T. Colin Campbell, The China Study, p. 111

"For the two out of three adult Americans who do not smoke and do not drink excessively, one personal choice seems to influence long-term health prospects more than any other: what we eat."
~ C. Everett Koop, U.S. Surgeon General
