D. Ann Noble's Dare to Ask Why explains and researches many aspects of our health. With her own health failing, the author underwent test after test with no clear answers. She needed to look deeper into her lifestyle and eating habits, and was alarmed to find toxins lurking in our food and everyday household products. D. Ann Noble explains that the principal thing is always to research and ask. Knowledge is the key. Substances like fluoride, aspartame, (artificial sweeteners in products such as cola, fizzy drinks, lollipops) high-fructose products, pesticides, pharmaceutical drugs and other substances are making us sick. We have no idea what is really in the food we eat and, as a health professional, D. Ann Noble explains we should dare to ask why. As a consumer, it is imperative that we find out what the toxins are in our food and if they are harmful. The toxins will certainly not be pointed out to us by the corporations that manufacture them. It is up to us to find out, for our health's sake.
This book has been an excellent, thought provoking read with an amazing plethora of information. It's a book I will gladly have on my coffee table and discuss the contents with countless friends while dining. But dining with only the freshest of food, of course. This is remarkable insight into how food companies may lie to feed us their products, whether they are healthy or not (I shall never eat margarine again). The author is adept at explaining in great detail how we should protect our bodies. After all, we only have one body, so why ruin it with chemically based food products? The book is so full of ideas, thoughts and "eureka moments" that it's astounding. Not only has this book made me think a lot about what I eat, what doctors say and how I will eat in the future, D. Ann Noble explains quite simply that what our bodies go through cannot be just explained away with a witticism. It's up to us to deal with our bodies, listen, and search for what suits us best. After all, we only get one chance.
