It includes seven simple dietary guidelines for eating gluten-free and low GI; how to find and source gluten-free products; low GI substitutes for common high GI foods; 100 delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes with dishes for each meal of the day; GI tables with values for popular gluten-free foods.

Millions of people around the world suffer from diabetes, and the figure is climbing - in the next decade cases are expected to triple in Europe. What this groundbreaking book proposes is that this serious and debilitating disease is entirely preventable. For those already suffering, this plan can reduce or even eliminate the need for insulin or oral medication of any kind. If you want to prevent or reverse diabetes, you should follow the guidelines in THE pH MIRACLE FOR DIABETES. Dr Robert Young and his wife, Shelley, reveal a revolutionary diet and lifestyle program that unlocks the secrets of pH balance and of food as a healer, restorer, balancer and life-giver. They illustrate that the single most important measurement of your health is the pH of your blood and tissues - in fact, the entire metabolic process depends on an alkaline environment and chronic over-acidity corrodes body tissue. THE pH MIRACLE FOR DIABETES is a proven program that explains which foods to eat, which foods can be combined safely, which should be eaten alone, which should be avoided altogether.

The Powerwatch Handbook
By Alasdair Philips, Jean Philips
Are you keeping safe? Electrical wiring and appliances, overhead power lines, machinery, photocopiers, mobiles and cordless telephones, radio masts, TVs, tube trains, x-rays and laser beams are amongst the hundreds of everyday items that are now known to give off high levels of microwave radiation. Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) can be biologically active and capable of making changes to the structure of human and animal cells which are exposed to them. Long-term exposure is believed by an increasing number of scientists and environmentalists to be connected to tumours, fertility problems, behaviour and mood changes, concentration and memory loss, and also to affect melatonin production and impair our immune system repair mechanisms. The Powerwatch Handbook is a simple no-nonsense guide to EMFs and how to reduce their harmful effect. Alasdair and Jean Philips present their information in a practical, positive and lively way, in an easy-to-follow handbook style. EMF levels are graded using a star rating system, high level items are highlighted, and practical tips given in step-by-step, bullet point form.
Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters
By Courtney E. Martin
Based on extensive research and in-depth interviews with women from various socio-economic backgrounds, Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters lays bare a stark new world culture of eating disorders, food and body issues that affect virtually all of today's women. Though eating disorders first came to be recognised about 25 years ago, Martin's book shows how the issues surrounding body image have only become more complex, more dangerous and more difficult to treat. The current 'epidemic' of obesity is simply the flip side of the same coin. Drawing from interviews with sufferers, psychologists, nutritionists, and other experts, Courtney Martin's book reveals a whole new generation of 'perfect girls' who have been conditioned from a young age to over-achieve, self-sacrifice, and hate their own bodies - this, despite being raised by a generation of mothers well-versed in the lessons of feminism. Filled with vivid and often heartbreaking personal stories, Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters is both a shocking expos and call to arms, offering hope for a new beginning, one young girl at a time.
