Reprint. [First: 1973] From the cover: “For the past three decades Doris Grant has been warning us of the potential dangers, to both physical and mental health, in our modern processed food, especially those lurking in the refined carbohydrates — white flour and white sugar. Her predictions have been more than vindicated by the recent medical research which points to these refined carbohydrates, and especially to the very low fibre diet which they create, as a major cause of many of the degenerative diseases of modern Western civilisation, for example, coronary heart disease, cancer of the colon, peptic ulcers, diabetes, varicose veins and obesity. However, medical research has also shown that a fibre-rich diet, containing 100 per cent wholewheat bread and the dilute sugars occurring naturally in fruits and vegetables, can go a long way towards both preventing and arresting these diseases. In this well-documented and convincing new book, Mrs. Grant explains fully the hazards and dangers of modern living and gives excellent and practical advice on how to avoid them. Everyone who is interested in personal health and nutrition and in family well-being generally should read Your Daily Food and act upon its valuable counsels.”
