Book Review: Unsafe at Any Meal: What the FDA Does Not Want You to Know About the Foods You Eat by Dr. Renee Joy Dufault

Unsafe at Any Meal: What the FDA Does Not Want You to Know About the Foods You Eat by Dr. Renee Joy Dufault

Back in 1965, a very good year by the way, Ralph Nadar published his book, Unsafe At Any Speed. Nadar was attempting to warn the American public about the dangers of the automobile and particularly the Chevrolet Corvair.

In the book Unsafe at Any Meal: What the FDA Does Not Want You to Know About the Foods You Eat by Dr. Renee Joy Dufault, the author is seeking to inform her readers about the dangers lurking in our food.

The author makes a very compelling case regarding the Standard American Diet (SAD) and how it can lead to autism, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD), and Alzheimer’s disease. It even appears that it may be possible to reverse some of the effects of those conditions by changing our diet.

One would think that a book like this would be a very dry read, but it isn’t.  This book is well-written and not too academic for most readers. When she does speak in scientific terms, she explains those terms in a simple form that even a redneck could understand and get the point.

Dr. Dufault tells her readers what they can do to live a healthier life.  She explains how even a person on a very limited budget may be able to eat healthier.  Wouldn’t it be great if she and her associates were to write a cookbook that provides healthy recipes on an extremely low budget?

We give Unsafe at Any Meal all five stars on our scale of zero to five stars.  We think it is an important book. This book is well-written and easy to understand, even though it does take on a fairly complex subject.

This book should be made required reading for all high school students.  A few hundred congressmen should also read this book.

We were sent a complimentary copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

Book Review: Get the HECK Out of Our Way!: EXAMPLES OF GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS THAT ARE ERODING OUR FREEDOMS, HOLDING BACK THE ECONOMY, AND COSTING US MONEY AND WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT IT by Dale W. Cox

Get the HECK Out of Our Way!: EXAMPLES OF GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS THAT ARE ERODING OUR FREEDOMS, HOLDING BACK THE ECONOMY, AND COSTING US MONEY AND WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT IT by Dale W. Cox

By now you have probably heard that our tax dollars go to support some pretty off-the-wall laws. Get the HECK Out of Our Way!: EXAMPLES OF GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS THAT ARE ERODING OUR FREEDOMS, HOLDING BACK THE ECONOMY, AND COSTING US MONEY AND WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT IT by Dale W. Cox helps us to see a little better just how far our government has gone astray.

You have, of course, heard how Texas is leaving the union. It is no longer a matter of if, it is a matter of when. We reviewed the book Texit on our How to Manage Your Monkey Blog a while back. That book talks about how Texans are fed up with the federal government.

Get the HECK Out of Our Way! kicks it up a notch, as Emeril would say. In this book, we see how the federal government is wreaking havoc on most states.

Maybe you have heard about the USDA paying dairy farmers not to milk. We used to live nextdoor to one of the largest dairy farmers in South Carolina. As we understand it, he has been paid not to milk.

Here in Texas, we have heard of a rice farm here in our county being paid not to grow rice. I wish I could find an agency that would pay us not to grow kudzu. We could get the government to kill it for us and pay us for something we don’t want anyway.

We give Get the HECK Out of Our Way! all five stars. It is well-written and well-researched. We did get very tired of reading the same mantra at the end of every chapter. Cox stated upfront that he was advised to only write it once; we wish he had listened to that advice. Some of the illustrations are a little hard to read, but one must remember that I am legally blind and that might be on my end of things.

We think you will be surprised by what you read in Get the Heck Out of Our Way. You will probably want to write to your elected officials. Maybe together we can heal our nation.
