The China Study
by T. Colin Campbell
This is the most important health book to come along in 75 years. An enjoyable book by a heroic nutrition researcher, presenting the irrefutable facts about why the vegan diet (no animal foods) is superior for preventing and reversing diseases and promoting superb health. Presents tons of convincing information (without confusing technical jargon) based upon the largest human nutrition study ever conducted. Also includes astonishing stories of U.S. political-scientific health policy perversions, and the author's frank assessment of how and why the power elite have lost their regard for human life. This book should be the teaching model for every nutrition course and program in the world.

The Path to Paradise
by Anne Osborne
A highly recommended book. It will explain the diet humans are actually designed to eat, which can be very different from what some raw food educators are recommending. Some of us may not be able to eat this way, but we should know about the diet we're suited to eat so we can move as far in that direction as possible.
The History of Natural Hygiene
by Hereward Carrington
It is vital that the true meaning of "healthful living" be thoroughly understood so that your health practices are rooted in the realities of health; the ways of (your) nature. And therefore this book should be part of every health-seekers library. It is still available from Amazon.com. Get it while it is still available.
Exposed: The Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Products
by Mark Shapiro
Exposed is a revealing and fascinating look at global markets, everyday products, and the toxic chemicals that bind them.

The author's revelations in this thought-provoking work will change the way American consumers think about everyday products. Can also be purchased here.
Politics of Cancer

The author's basic charges are backed by 65 leading national public health and cancer prevention experts, including past directors of three federal health agencies.
The Slow Poisoning of America
by John Erb
Every year more and more people are being stricken with disease and illness. Diabetes, Alzheimer's, Obesity, Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, Headaches and Migraines, and neurodegenerative conditions are ailments whose dramatic increase jeopardize the health of the entire country. This threat does not come from terrorists or from hostile countries, but from within our very own borders. Embark on a journey to discover the reasons why in a time of medical wonder, people are suffering in record numbers. The findings of almost two hundred medical research studies will guide you to the poisons behind these illnesses. You have the power to do something about this, to protect yourself and your family, but only if you know what the problem is.
Milk: The Deadly Poison
by Robert Cohen
You may not want to hear this, but what you've been told all your life about milk is an outright lie. A glass of milk, even the low-fat kind, is awash in fat (the equivalent of three slices of bacon), cholesterol, antibiotics, bacteria, and -- the most distasteful ingredient -- pus. A source of calcium? Yes. A healthy source of usable calcium? You be the judge. A way to help prevent osteoporosis, or a contributing factor to it? The facts will shock you.
The Breast Cancer Prevention Program
by Samuel S. Epstein, MD and David Steinman
Only four decades ago, the breast cancer rate was 1 in 20. Now it is 1 in 4. Yet the cancer establishment still insists that "we have turned the tide against cancer." Not so, say the authors of this groundbreaking book. They back up this claim with the most thorough analysis of all known and suspected causes of breast cancer yet undertaken. They reveal the heartening news that you can take steps to reduce your risks of getting breast cancer, since its rise is directly related to an out-of-control spread of factors that increase your risk - from environmental and workplace carcinogens to unhealthy lifestyle choices.
Dressed to Kill
The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras
by Sydney Ross Singer & Soma Grismaijer
The authors (one a woman) have collected striking evidence that bra-wearing is a major risk factor associated with breast cancer: women who wore bras more than 12 hour per day had a 1 out of 7 risk, and women who wore bras rarely or never, had a 1 out of 168 chance of getting breast cancer. The snug fitting garment inhibits the proper functioning of the lymphatic system (an internal network of vessels and nodes that flushes wastes from the body) and leads to a buildup of carcinogenic compounds in the constricted area. Women evolved under conditions where there was breast movement with every step they took. This causes lymphatic flow which cleans the breast of toxins and wastes that arise from cellular metabolism. This book is a must read for any woman who'd rather not get breast cancer. It's available here. And click here to read a great article on bras and breast cancer.
