Product Details


Vegetarianism is growing in this country, and the new food pyramid released by the Department of Agriculture has attracted media coverage. Barnard (medicine, George Washington Univ.) suggests his own food groups, which are grains, vegetables, fruits, and legumes. Dean Ornish ( Eat More, Weigh Less, LJ 6/1/93) provides an introduction, but Barnard goes further than Ornish in advocating a complete vegan diet. He also goes further than Gene Spiller's The Superpyramid Eating Program ( LJ 3/15/93) in his claims for the health benefits of such a diet. While Barnard discusses the reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, obesity, and the danger of free radicals, he also mentions the likely effects of diet on balding, hormones and sexual function, early puberty, and general aging. Extensive chapter notes back up most assertions, with a few supported anecdotally. The recipes, though quick and easy to prepare, offer complex and delicious flavors and textures. This is recommended for collections on popular health and nutrition.-- Carol Cubberley, Univ. of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg
