I believe you can also get a similar (if not the same)book on the ADA website. They offer many booklets there for FREE and they are often symptom, gender or culturally based, making it easy for you to narrow down your slection based on your needs. That is great that it is out there. The best thing we can do (next to elimination processed foods) is learning how to read the lables and know what is in our foods. It can be like reading a horror story though, so be prepared.
