A few weeks ago I was sent a copy of T. Colin Campbell’s new book Whole by BenBella, the publisher, to review and host a blog giveaway.
I finished up the book a few moments ago and my head is racing. There are so many things to write about! Plus, I AM SO ANGRY I don’t even know where to begin. But begin I must.
Whole is not an easy book to read or digest. I consider myself to be of decent intelligence and there were many chapters that I could not get through. But I skipped those and I pressed on, and it was totally worth it. I feel far more educated about the system of health research, medicine, pharmaceuticals, disease societies (think the American Cancer Society), the media and big food and how they are all interconnected–and not for our benefit.
If you are reading this blog, chances are you care a whole helluva lot about not just your own health, but the health of your family, your friends, your community and even your whole country. I don’t know what it’s like in countries outside of the USA, but over here, it seems like this obesity epidemic and health care crisis are taking over our entire economy. And not just our free market economy, but driving taxes up and sucking the lifeblood out of our government spending, taking away much needed dollars from education, infrastructure and other much more important things.
