This book addresses the fact that not all metabolic types can efficiently convert plant nutrients to critical nutrients needed by the body such as omega-3s into DHA and EPA needed by the brain; beta-carotene into true vitamin A; essential amino acids into nonessential ones; vitamin D2 and D3, and vitamin K1 into K2. Not all physiologies have a metabolic type that tolerates a vegetarian diet. Includes resource section with related websites and doctors who approve of a raw non-vegan diet, located in the back of book. Links the research of Dr. Weston A. Price, DDS and Dr. Francis M. Pottenger, Jr., MD as to the significance of animal-based diets and the absence of native vegetarian diets in traditional populations.
