This is the only well-balanced health/nutrition book I've ever read, because it's the only one based on a consistent standard. Other nutrition-related books are based predominately on the prevailing scientific research, which changes radically every few years, leaving followers on a nutritional roller coaster. Dr. Russell, on the other hand, understands that all true science lines up with Scriptural revelation. Thus, his book is backed up with scientific research, but centered around the infallible, inerrant Word of God. If you trust that the Creator knows what your body needs for fuel, you will appreciate Dr. Russell's simple guidelines and thorough explanations of why they work.
