About the Book

This book is an exploration of both traditional and modern scientific views of the relationship between food and health, from ancient medicine to modern food guide pyramids and health risk factors. Food is not just about taste and identity, but definitely beneficial or detrimental to our health and strength. Modern medicine, while powerful and exact, still lacks many insights about traditional knowledge, about the healing power of nutrients and herbs. What we eat, how we eat, and when we eat, the W.H.W. of nutrition, affects our well-being and cultural identity. This book has been written with an ever-increasing flood of information about nutritional values, dietary supplements, and medicinal plants in mind and to ease any confusion that might exist in the reader's mind.
