Nutrition student perspective: Mostly good and full of interesting information and recommendations, but some of his explanations, such as about free radicals, are just are not quite right, or they are too simplified and therefore misleading, which makes me wonder how much else is like this in the book. Has good information of fish in terms of mercury levels and how to identify wild Alaskan salmon over Atlantic salmon, and of how to 'put your home on a diet' and get rid of or lower the toxins you ...more
Great and eye opening read. My only criticism is that the author made this book about weight loss while in fact the advice applies to everyone.
In general, I do not like to read weight loss books (and I agree with Anna that this book shouldn’t just be about weight loss and that everyone can benefit from this information); however, what intrigued me to pick up this book is to learn more about the toxins consuming our life. I was particularly fascinated by the chapter on getting rid of toxins in the home. I ended up discarding all of my candles and air fresheners. My criticism is that the author didn't give any examples of what could be u ...more
Some very interesting information and what I presume to be sound advice. But it was a bit too in-depth for my current interest level in the subject. I agree wholeheartedly with Dr. Crinnion's assertion that toxic elements surround us and get into our bodies and cause all manner of illnesses and sensitivities. And I agree that we should do all we can to shield ourselves and our children from as many of these toxic elements as possible. I suspect I will revisit this book when I can find it second- ...more

Dr. Crinnion, a naturopathic physician, explains how to clean up (and out) your body and your home. This book is packed with information that is easy to understand. There are charts listing the most toxic fruits, vegetables, fish, and meats. There are lists of hidden sugar sources and high sugar foods. Having a sibling with celiac disease, I appreciate the amount of information on foods with gluten. There is a chapter of Clean, Green and Lean recipes that is followed by a Fourteen-Day Menu Plan.

Ok, I didn't read the whole thing, just parts, enought to see that is would be best purchased instead of from the library so it could be used as a reference boook. I am glad to see that the idea of environmental toxins as a cause for illness is becoming more mainstream. (I recommend also Slow Death by Rubber Duck ) My only criticism is that he sometimes reports in statistical detail the scientific studies without explaining how to put it to use in real li ...more

My overall impression of this book is that the author gives food for thought, makes you aware of the endless irritants and toxins in our environment and their possible effects on the body. What he fails to do is convince that the toxins are the cause of the obesity problems that plague so many people, and more importantly, that toxins are the reason we maintain our fat and can’t rid our bodies of extraneous adipose tissue.
Some very valuable information! I would classify this as a must read. You can take some of it with a grain of salt or wheat, but it is still good information to be armed with when you are faced with the choices of what to do to protect yourself--your health.
An eye opening look at what causes disease; including what we eat and what is in our home. Great examples of people who have "cured" themselves with some changes in diet and living conditions. A good reference book.
this is my first book on clean eating and getting rid of toxins. it was very interesting although I don't know how I feel. I will tell you I'm currently sipping on some green tea.
This book is a great new staple in our modern environments. I agree with Rhi Cook, it'll change the way you look at everything in your life.
I liked it--a lot of good information, but not too much I didn't know, and I wasn't interested enough to finish it.
I loved the concept of the book. Some things are just not realitic.
Literally change the way you look at everything in your life
