The Second Brain is quite a heavy read due to scientific language used although Gershon has tried to explain it in layman terms.

You can listen to Dr. David Agus’s interview on The Current program on CBC Radio:

http://www.cbc.ca/thecurrent/episode/2012/02/06/dr-agus-with-a-cure-to-end-illness/

I don’t agree with Dr. Agus’s recommendation to use statin drugs (like Lipitor and Crestor) for cancer prevention (off-label use as opposed to cholesterol lowering agent).

Read the excerpts from the Omnivore’s Dilemma (Michael Pollan) about Potatoes and Beef:

http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/Books/omnivores-dilemma-michael-pollan/story?id=8890726 (read all 3 pages)

You can visit website of Tom Mueller (Extra Virginity) at:http://www.truthinoliveoil.com/+ listen to his interview on CBC Radio: http://www.cbc.ca/shift/2012/06/04/whats-really-in-your-bottle-of-olive-oil/+ read his article in New Yorker:http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2007/08/13/070813fa_fact_mueller

I read The Locavore’s Dilemma to be educated about the contrarian view. I read it with complete open mind. My judgment: If this is the best foot forward against organic and local food then I am afraid it has no leg to stand on.
Wheat Belly and its companion Wheat Belly Cookbook alone would change your lives for ever. Look for Dr. William Davis lecture in the Educational Videos page of this blog.
