An Apple A Day--The ABCs of Diet and Disease, a wise, sometimes hilarious handbook that stresses preventative choices and a healthy lifestyle. A powerful and effective guide to smart eating, the book is a must for every home and office library. Presented in an alphabetical format, the book covers topics ranging from apples and alcohol to zinc and zucchini, and everything in between. The fun, fact-filled tome is peppered with historical highlights, witty quotes and healthful recipes throughout, in chapters such as “Chocolate, Chocolate and More Chocolate,” “Fear of Flatulence,” “Mad Cows and Big Macs,” “Pizza, Pasta and Prostates,” “Quiche Me,” and “Veggies, Vitamins and Viagra.” For example, in Chapter A, on the subject of alcohol’s possible protective effects against the development of Alzheimer’s disease, Bancroft quotes the May 2000 article in the Journal of the American Medical Association: “...those who had one or two drinks per day had a 50% lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease”. Cheers!

Over the past twenty years, Barb Bancroft, RN, MSN, PNP, has captivated audiences during lively, packed-house seminars across North America. And it’s no wonder. Bancroft’s subject matter--nutrition, health and disease--is universal.From the Author:
I think a few explanations are in order before you delve into this compilation of research findings, fun facts, and hysterical/historical highlights.
1) The “average” American. You will notice that I use the term the “average” American often throughout the text. Does such a person exist in the U.S.? No, not exactly. If you have followed the 2000 U.S. Census, you have most likely noticed that the “average” American living in Bemidji, Minnesota is quite different from the “average” American living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Suffice it to say, the average American is red, yellow, black, and white, male and female, heterosexual, homosexual, asexual, and bisexual, blonde-haired and blue-eyed, black-hair and brown-eyed, blue-haired and cross-eyed. Probably the only commonality we all have as “average” Americans is that we love to eat. When appropriate, I have added gender-based, ethnic-based, and geographically based findings. For the most part, however, we are all the “average” American.
2) The numbers. There are many numbers used throughout this book. These numbers describe amounts consumed, laboratory test ranges, and recommended daily allowances (RDAs) of various vitamins and minerals. I have checked, rechecked, and checked again for the accuracy of these numbers, however, there may be an error hidden somewhere in the text. Please do not hold these numbers as sacrosanct. Always read the label of any dietary supplement or multivitamin that you purchase for consumption.
