That he wasn't joking when he said to rinse your beans. Especially black beans. We use this in Spanish recipes. I found out from someone doing a Ph.D. in biology that there is a toxic poison, which is released, when you soak them 24 hours and throw away the water. I also learned chickens do not urinate,not to happy about eating chicken anymore. I read this book in the 1960-70's. I didn't really give him much credit.

Now after learning from other sources it turns out he is correct on just about ev

Recommends it for: everyone
This is the book that everyone should read if you want the best of health and a long life. This book doesn't talk about fad diets. This is about a lifestyle. I live what's taught in it and found everything to be 100% correct. Todays scientists have also proven what's contained therin. Eat to live and not to die!

Directly shows how one's diet effects overall physical and mental health. I stopped eating cornbread and white bread, also cut back on potatoes thanks to this book.

Fantastic! If you want a guide to eating properly this is a must read. This book was full of information to help you have a healthy diet spiritually and physically. After reading this book I felt as if I had went through a physical cleansing.

this is outdated. Somebody needs to write another book.(probably already did)
Science has ruled out some of these theories. Certainly relevant for the 30's though
when the government was using citizens as test subjects.

Good book and I'm going to try to eat 1 meal a day and see how my body reacts to this and this type of teaching should be taught to us but it isn't and Black people in general should read this because by cutting out swine will increase years on this Earth.

I believe this book reveals a lot of truth. I have heard now from at least 2 other sources information that supports diet described in these pages and decided to use my own body for affirmation of these truths.
