Mary Frost has a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Texas, and a Master of Arts and Liberal Arts from St. Johns College. She has been actively involved in health and nutrition for more than 15 years, and brings her experience and studies to the fore as a nutritional journalist. Her goal is to help consumers make informed decisions concerning their health based on clear and concise information that is not widely disseminated. She does this in her book by exposing what she considers to be misinformation perpetrated by fads, trends and bold-faced lies.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
"And outraged is what we as a nation should be! But we are more concerned when a plane crashes because of the publicity than we are of the number of people dying from heart disease every year. Yet, there is a lot of human misery reflected in these frightening statistics, plus the billions of dollars involved in the health care needs these people require. Orthodox Medical Care spending is now estimated at $200 billion.
In the attempt to protect themselves and their families from these frightening occurrences, Americans are changing their diets and are taking herbs and supplements. The money spent on the Alternative Health Industry is estimated at over $1 billion this past year. Over-the-counter vitamin sales are at $9 billion. This means that most people buy their vitamins from a store clerk!!!
And yet, people are getting sicker. They pump vitamins and eat "right", but that does not seem to be the answer. They are still fatigued, still overweight, still fighting the cholesterol battle, etc..., etc..." (Anonymous Reviewer)
