From the Publisher

The Saccharine Disease, Conditions Caused by the Taking of Refined Carbohydrates, such as Sugar and White Flour contends that the causation of these conditions has been obscured through confusing distinctions between unnatural, refined carbohydrates and that of natural, unrefined carbohydrates like fruits and whole meal flour. The author notes that all the foregoing conditions are really the manifestations of a single master-disease—that many of the major diseases of modern societies are caused by consuming unreasonable amounts of refined carbohydrate foods. The author discusses that in the short time that man has changed his diet, evolutionary adaptation is left behind. He gives two rules to prevent and arrest all saccharine disease manifestations: Do not eat any food unless you definitely want it, and avoid eating white flour or white sugar. These two rules will prevent gastric or duodenal ulcer, diabetes, coronary disease, constipation, complications of varicose veins, hemorrhoids, E. coli infections, obesity, and some skin conditions, As a retired Surgeon-General of the Royal Navy, the author bases his assumptions on evolutionary, epidemiological, and other scientific or historical work. This book can give insights to dieticians, food researchers, nutritionists, people on diet, and general medicine practioners.

When Pepper Snider stopped hanging out with friends and spent her time brooding in her room, Christine Byrd thought her daughter’s moodiness was normal for a teen. The reality was much more complicated—and costly: Snider was diagnosed with anorexia in 2006 at age 17, five years after her symptoms began. “They’re very good at hiding it,” says Byrd. Byrd’s health insurance through her job as an accountant covered 12 therapy visits a year. Snider needed 12 sessions a month. The first year’s out-of-pocket tab came to about $27,000. “We spent all of her college money,” Byrd says. And Snider still

Digital Diet

FOOD ENTREPRENEUR Neil Grimmer wants Americans to stop bingeing on fad diets. “Instead of pulling a New York Times bestseller diet book off the shelf and giving it a go, people need to understand there may be an answer locked inside of them,” Grimmer says. “We’ve just lost the ability to listen.” With the help of a $32 million investment from Campbell Soup, Zimmer founded Habit, a San Francisco nutrition startup selling a $299 at-home test kit, which crunches a person’s unique biological data to produce individually tailored food recommendations. “I believe the future of food is highly perso
