The -Year Lie How Food and Medicine Are Destroying Your Health

By Randall Fitzgerald

(ISBN 0-525-94951-8)

I believe we would all live better lives if we had better information, and this book is packed with some of the best information I’ve read in a while. For instance, did you know that 60 percent of California’s rivers and streams tested with high levels of Prozac, Ritalin, and antibiotics? The everyday products that we have around us flood the human body with more than 700 synthetic chemicals, and most of us are becoming aware of the chemistry in our food processing. It’s easy to correlate this with the growing susceptibility to autism, attention deficit disorder, and a variety of neurological disorders. I also found it surprising how many of the myths that we have accepted through time are simply not true, such as: fluoridated water is healthy for us, plastics are absolutely safe, drugs have extended our lifespans, and the list goes on. This book is also a breath of fresh air because it offers solutions simply by knowing the facts and showing ways to change our direction through “better living without chemistry.
