5.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly excellent scientific work Oct. 11 1998
By A Customer
This is not just another shopping-list of chemicals but an outstanding dissertation of the basis for trace elements and other micro nutrients in our diet and the reasons for the universal lack thereof. Besides its value as a guide to nutrition, the book provides insights into our biological origins, as a species, and shows how far from our "natural home" we have strayed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary documentation of the decline of minerals in our food Nov. 17 2006
By Herblady22 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Paul Bergner writes and extraordinary book documenting how American produce has systematically declined in mineral nutrients over the 20th century. From the strip mining of factory farming to the choices of less mineral rich species for public consumption, our food no longer contains what it used to. Since the 1970s, when the last government comprehensive accounting of the nutritional value of foods was published, mineral content has tended to drop by a third. Bergner shows that an apple a day in 1929 was worth close to 30 today in terms of minerals. Colloidal minerals, mineral supplements and chelated minerals are dissected, searched for hidden aluminum and compared to mineral rich herbs like nettles. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars informative and useful May 23 2006
By J. Steinbachs - Published on Amazon.com
Still working my way through this book. I find it very informative and useful. I've read through "Nourishing Traditions" by Fallon and Enig but found that they relied a little too heavily on Price's work. I like that this book uses more independent sources to put together the information. Definitely worth adding to one's collection if you are a book addict, especially on the subject of nutrition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book, should be in print Aug. 5 2009
By Timothy D. Lundeen - Published on Amazon.com

This is an outstanding book, well researched and based on years of practical experience from treating people with mineral deficiencies. It should be in print, it is still dead-on and relevant. I wish I'd read this years ago when I started trying to repair my blood sugar metabolism.

Bergener says the essentials for health are good nutrition from natural foods, along with balanced omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which is exactly right from my own experience and research.

I love the book, but not the price. I understand it was not reprinted due to all the opposition within the food industry.
