Book Review
Readers\' Favorite Book Contest Award Winner This isn't just any cooking book. It has facts about the many things we eat and inadvertently put in our bodies. Many say food is to keep us alive. Thienna Ho has found that it is much more than that. Food is that which helps us live productive and healthy lives. We are what we eat and if we eat junk, our body will reflect this fact. Our hair, skin and energy will suffer if we are not giving our body the right kinds of food. Not only our inner and outer bodies will suffer but also our minds. When we are not healthy our minds too cloud up, and we have a hard time concentrating and making decisions.

In Cooking on the Light Side, the author will teach you, in easy understandable ways, the many facts that surround our food. Then she will help you learn how to get more for your money.

For example, did you know that a study conducted by the University of Missouri reveals that one brand of bottled water contains chemicals that stimulate division in cancer cells? 38 of them contain: coli form bacteria, ammonia, benzene, cyanide, and lead, to name a few toxins. Also, did you know that your tap water could contain 260 contaminants, of which 52 are linked to cancer, 41 are considered hazards to healthy reproduction, 36 are believed to impair development, and 16 are linked with dysfunction of the immune system?

How can you help your body to be healthy? Thienna Ho has found that a diet high in sulfur keeps the body strong and healthy. This greatly helps the oxygen get into your body. I have always known that oxygen is one of the most important components in my body. Where and how I get it should be a major concern for me.

So is this diet hard to follow? The food is easy to find, and it will give you a variety of vegetables that you probably don't know how to use. This is a great opportunity to try something new. The recipes are included with color pictures to get your mouth watering. Give this book a try and your body will thank you. Recommended to Young adults and adults alike.
