After decades of alarms about the foods we shouldn’t eat and the contaminants we shouldn’t have to suffer, Jean Carper supplies some good news by playing up the therapeutic properties of different foods in The Food Pharmacy Guide to Good Eating. Carper first touted these health benefits in her book The Food Pharmacy (1988). Now, along with further bulletins from research frontiers, she has come up with tasty recipes for using seafood, olive oil, garlic and onions, and other food superstars that are said to help ward off cancer, heart disease, and a host of other maladies. Though serious researchers might fault Carper’s breathless overpromotion or her rush to celebrate a breakthrough before the verdict’s in, some experts have contributed recipes. You might try Dr. Rosenthal’s blues-fighting muffins, Dr. Duke’s anticancer slaw, or Dr. Ziment’s garlic chicken soup, which has indeed been found to relieve congestion due to colds. And with or without a family history of breast cancer, you can enjoy the lusty tuna-pepper stew that might help bolster your defenses. It couldn’t hurt. B
