#1 Nutrition represents the combined activities of countless food substances. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
#2 Vitamin supplements are not a panacea for good health.
#3 There are virtually no nutrients in animal-based foods that are not provided better by plants.
#4 Genes do not determine disease on their own. Genes function only by being activated, or expressed, and nutrition plays a critical role in determining which genes, good and bad, are expressed.
#5 Nutrition can substantially control the adverse effects of noxious chemicals.
#6 The same nutrition that prevents disease in its early stages (before diagnosis) can also halt or reverse disease in its later stages (after diagnosis).
#7 Nutrition that is truly beneficial for one chronic disease will support health across the board.
#8 Good nutrition creates health in all areas of our existence. All parts are interconnected.引自 Ch.11 Eating Right:Eight Principles of Food and Health
