About 1 year ago, I began having a lot of pain in my joints. After several doctors, I still did not have an explanation of why my joints hurt and why I was gaining weight eventhough I had always exercised and watched my diet. One doctor mentioned that red meat could trigger arthritis. I decided to find out more about nutrition and since I have a severe peanut allergy, I wanted to find out if any of the "safe" foods I was eating could contain peanuts. When I bought "Food Additives : A Shopper's Guide To What's Safe & What's Not, 2001 Revised Edition",
I was shocked to find out that many of the additives that I assumed were safe actually contained peanuts. This book has become my "nutrition bible" I carry it with me wherever I go. Since using this book, I have been able to avoid many additives that could be harmful to me. Within 1 month, I was able to begin an exercise program again without pain and I actually lost the weight I had gained. Christine Hoza Farlow's book is very easy to use and small enough to fit in your pocket or purse. The material is straight forward and lets you make quick choices that fit your nutritional needs whether you have allergies or simply want to avoid all the carcinogens that are popping up everywhere. I have several other books about food additives, but I still seem to go back to this one. If you're looking for a simple approach to understanding labels, A Shopper's Guide To What's Safe & What's Not is definitely the book for you!
