Nice Amazon review of Bush's 700+ Secrets
This is not so much a book as a tome in the best sense of the word:wide-ranging,challenging,academic,common sense, authoritative.It`s also full of true-isms, humour and a story that seems to befall all those who challenge the standard medical doctrines,aka comfort zones.
I started to read about nutrition some 18 months ago when I was diagnosed with heart disease.I rejected stains and wanted an alternative.As such I read loads of books:some excellent (Pauling,Kendrick),some good (Sinatra) and others that were frankly bull.I REALLY wished that I`d `ve found this at that point as my first reference-would have saved me alot of time (and no little money!).
The book`s focus is,as the title says,is on Vitamin C and its many many uses:all expertly and skillfully discussed and presented.But,this is not doing justice to the encyclopaedic nature of the book :full of knowledge,wisdom (based on experience),common sense,academic debate backed up by reference after reference.And it has alot of humour.
The author shows an incredible breadth and range of knowledge not just re Vit C but across the nutritional board.This is especially evident when he describes how you can treat heart disease using specialised retinometry (simplified statement from my part) ;following this he was more or less ostracised by the medical community as he challenged the medical system.He`s for sure put up with a lot but still pushes forward regardless.And thank Goodness there are still people like Dr Bush.
So,if you liked reading the works by the likes of Pauling, Yudkin, Kendrick, Ravnskov, Peatfield-Durant, you will enjoy this tome greatly. And,I suspect,some more.
For one,I intend to contact Dr Bush and follow though on his discovery.
