Grocery Warning

Anybody read this book?

http://www.truthpublishing.com/grocer...

Sounds interesting, although rather expensive at $89.00

I couldn't find any "real" reviews on line.

  1. are you suprised? who knew my dad could get rid of his diabetes by merely buying this book.

    im sorry but i smell a scam.

    1. A rule I live by: any person or organization that claims to know "the truth" is a scam or a crackpot.

      1. If the claims are true, then selling this info is borderline immoral - shouldn't he warn his fellow man free of charge?

        I'm guessing this book will reveal that low-fructose corn syrup is the root of all human ailments...or some other fairly bogus claptrap.

          i don't know anything about low-fructose corn syrup, but high fructose corn syrup is insidiously finding its way into just about everything in the grocery store. and yeah, it's bad stuff.

        2. Reminds me of the book a neighbor lent me claiming that the author could cure my Crohn's disease by eating nothing but his high-priced, unregulated nutritional suppliments. Yeah, right. Thanks, I'll stick with my highly trained, well respected, licensed doctor.

            If you're talking about "Patient, Heal Thyself," I'd recommend giving it a second glance. It's helped my Crohn's disease in proportion to the amount I've been willing to follow its advice (which admitadly varies). And only a few suppliments are necessary: probiotics (which are good for you anyway) and rice bran complex (also very good for you anyway). The rest you can use as a standard instead of a rule (eat less sugar and wheat).

            I'd never give up my GI, though.

          2. I read the website you gave and if I were you, I would save your money. I have a feeling they are going to tell you the following:

            -trans fat is bad
            -corn syrup is bad
            -artificial colors are bad and cause ADHD
            -sulfides are bad and cause asthma
            -nitrates and nitrites cause birth defects
            -msg cause GI problems
            -reading the nutrition labels will tell you what is healthy

            I have a feeling that you won't find out anything you shouldn't already know.

            1. "Truth Publishing" - Puhleez!

              1. I'll just wait until my SIL buys it and borrow it off her. This is right up her ally.

                1. Right after buying this book, jfood will answer all the emails from people in Africa looking for representatives in the US, informing him that he won the UK Lottery, telling him that he has just been left $100MM in someone's will and that they want to send him a boxful of diamonds.

                  News flash for those who buy the book. If you stub your toe, it will hurt. Please send $9.95 to the Jfood Truth in Pain Institute for this insight.

                  Truthfully, anyone who buys this book deserves it, and deserves to have their name sold to other scam artists.

                  1. Author: Mike Adams, Health Ranger

                    WTF is a Health Ranger?

                      Is that like a Power Ranger? Or more like Yogi's Ranger Smith?

                      1. re: mojoeater

                        LMAO! Maybe more like a healthy version of the Lone Ranger?

                        HiHo Tofu...Awaayyyyyyy!

                      2. re: Hoosierland

                        Read the following quip further down:

                        "at age 37, Adams is a shining example of peak human health, and he pursues gymnastics, cycling, martial arts and Capoeira, staying active at an age when many people are suffering advances stages of cancer, diabetes or depression"

                        So to your WTF jfood adds BFD. At 15 years his senior jfood is capable of the same and disagrees that even at his "advanced" age group the population has "many" people suffering from these unfortunate diseases.

                        What a hoax.

                        Pretty simple, eat healthy, exercise, don't smoke and take everything in moderation. Wow sounds like the name of jfood's first book.

                        1. re: jfood

                          I'm 40 and have so far cheated all of those maladies.
                          I live in Canada so maybe that has something to do with it.

                          I'll keep my eyes crossed thought
