Miriam Nelson’s books are superior to many other health books for two reasons. First, she cites the scientific research that supports her statements; it’s not hearsay or personal experiences that lead her to conclusions—even though she does have osteoporosis.

I would take it with me if I were going to consult about my worsening bone density.
