From the preface to The Raw Food Nutrition Handbook
This book is a hybrid of the research-based information and my own personal and clinical experience that I’ve acquired since I became interested in raw, plant-based nutrition in 1990. I’ve included much of my own experience, because for all that’s known about health and nutrition, there’s still much that is yet to be known. On many occasions, I’ve had a question for which there was not a research-based answer, and it was my clinical experience or the clinical experience of other practitioners that helped me answer the question or fill in the gaps left by research. Clinical experience doesn’t provide all the answers either, so I’ve found the combination of research and clinical and personal experience to be powerful for helping me achieve the health results I’ve sought and have helped others find.

Indeed, in 2009 Texas had four cities in the list of top ten fattest cities in the United States.
From the introduction to The Healing Power of Turmeric
Despite the concerted efforts of conventional medical practitioners and scientific researchers to understand and effectively deal with both acute and chronic diseases, little has changed in well over fifty years in terms of how most common ailments are assessed and treated. Chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular and neurodegenerative conditions, diabetes, cancers, respiratory illnesses, and stroke comprise 46 percent of the total global disease burden and account for 59 percent of deaths worldwide. And these numbers aren’t decreasing; alarmingly, they’re on an upswing.
