John Jeavons Recommends:Healing Spices by Bharat B Aggarwal, PhD

An easy way to increase health and nutrition in your diet...add spices! Healing Spices details how to use 50 everyday and exotic spices to boost Heath and beat disease. One of my favorites, turmeric, has been cited in many medical studies to reduce inflammation as good and better than over the counter anti-inflammatories. It also reduces risk of cancer, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's. Incorporate turmeric into soups, grains, vegetables and more! Happy healing!
