Product description


“A wonderfully practical tome that explains how folks around the world benefit from the healing power of food.” (Mehmet C. Oz, MD, co-author of You: The Owner's Manual)

“This fascinating, well researched book explores the health benefits of traditional diets from Iceland to Cameroon. The benefits include reduced risk of heart disease, diabetes and depression.” (Miami Herald)

“In this bracingly hopeful and eminently practical book, Daphne Miller shows us how we can bring the wisdom of traditional diets to our own plates, in the interest of both our health and our pleasure. The Jungle Effect is a fascinating, useful and important book.” (Michael Pollan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food)

“[The Jungle Effect] reads like an exotic, ever-unfolding international mystery - with recipes.” (Heidi Benson, , San Francisco Chronicle)

“The Jungle Effect was such an enjoyable read that I almost forgot I was being fed a steady dose of valuable nutrition advice—advice that combines the wisdom of our ancestors with the latest nutrition research.” (Bradley J. Willcox, MD, co-author of the New York Times bestseller, The Okinawa Program and Clinician-Scientist, Pacific Health Research Institute, University of Hawaii)

“Daphne Miller is the Sherlock Holmes of healthy eating. The Jungle Effect is an odyssey where she follows clues and food experts to discover some of the healthiest diets around the world -- and how best to recreate those meals and lifestyles in our daily lives.” (Juliette Rossant, author of SUPER CHEF)

“The Jungle Effect is a brilliant piece of work. Why? Because it is so gloriously green: indigenous knowledge is recycled and transformed into a comfy, hip, yummy set of food choices. The message is practical, palatable, and pleasing.” (Harriet Beinfield, coauthor Between Heaven and Earth: A Guide to Chinese Medicine)

“Presents us with a unique travelogue of healthy eating.” (Gail Altschuler, MD, Medical Director, The Altschuler Clinic, A Center for Weight Loss & Wellness)
