Book Review: Tripping Over the Truth

Book Review: Tripping Over the Truth

The most powerful book I've read in months!

Cancer rates are rising worldwide at an alarming rate, despite all the advances in medicine and science.

Billions have been spent on researching the "Genetic" cause of cancer, but results have been disappointing: the genetic mutations often thought to be the cause of cancer turn out to be "random" most of the time.

So are there other "causes" of cancer?

In this phenomenal book, the author looks at decades of research and highlights all the extensive research of the past 10 years which is uncovering new evidence about cancer, how to reduce its chances and improve treatment.

A MUST read in my opinion.

So… should you eat red meat or not?!

So… should you eat red meat or not?!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would have read the headlines and stories and heard the reports exploding over the “WHO says red meat causes cancer” story last week. 

Vegans were smug. Paleo people went on the attack. Virtually everyone voiced an opinion on it. 

For this reason, I’ll refrain from voicing my own opinion on the matter (frequent readers will know my opinion anyway). 

So my aim in this post is to present the facts, and let the reader use his/her own judgment and decide on a course of action. So here we go.
