I bought this book after having read Stefan Gates on E Numbers which I didn't like because it almost glorified E numbers. I much prefer the approach of this book but still I am not too sure about the information contained in it. First of all no one seems to be really sure about how safe the safe additives are and that is clear in this book. Just to give two examples Acetic Acid is considered safe but it can cause skin irritations, hives, skin rash, caused cancer in rats and mice orally and by injection and is harmful to aquatic organisms. Then concerning Ammonium Alginate, alginates can be beneficial for the health but also inhibit absorption of essential nutrients in animal tests so God knows what they can do to humans. And.... they never say that something is safe.... they always say that it is "regarded as safe in food use at low levels". So how safe are these additives exactly? I suppose no one knows but manufacturers have a choice of 10.000 of them! Maybe restrain use of these additives would be a better way of handling this problem? Because after all people are getting more and more ill and that costs not only lots of money but lots of suffering too! I for one try to stay clear of this stuff but it is hardly possible even if you stay away from any processed food and... don't forget that they don't need to mention everything that goes into food, there are situations when they can leave out information. Moreover the E numbers make it even more complicate to know which is which because who can remember most of them? And shopping with a booklet in the hand is for the most of us as a rule also not an option.

So, this book is handy to give you an idea about what you are eating and putting on your body, does it answer all the questions regarding safety....

And shopping with a booklet in the hand is for the most of us as a rule also not an option.

So, this book is handy to give you an idea about what you are eating and putting on your body, does it answer all the questions regarding safety.... according to me not at all because the truth is that no one knows what is safe and what is not! Another example I have just thought about is the fact that MSG is considered unsafe, and that I knew already, but Magnesium Diglutamate, which contains MSG is considered safe. Ok, maybe it contains the stuff in very small quantities, who is to know but I for one prefer not to take any! Interesting that MSG is found in cosmetics despite the fact that it is supposed to be a flavor enhancer and also in vaccines! Anyway, MGS can be hidden under many names so often you don't know that it is included anyway! Another interesting fact is the harmful coloring in medication, why on earth does medication need to have a nice color and if so why not use harmless, natural colorings? It also seems to sometimes contain MGS.

If I could add something else it would be the fact that such bright background colors make it difficult to read the text by dimmer light. With very good light no problem, if you are in a space with less light you might struggle! Maybe a bit lighter background colors would be a good compromise.....

Surprising to still find a doctor who cares enough about his patients to do research on what is making them ill and that alone deserves 5 stars! Mostly they don't care anymore, you go there, they prescribe you some pills, if they don't work next time they prescribe a bigger quantity of the same pills or different ones. This doctor is really one in a million and one I would like to come across!
