Nourishing Traditions The Cookbook That Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats By Fallon, Sally Book - 2001

Sally Fallon is an English major who grew up in an extremely wealthy family and her assertion that she is challenging the political status quo is the first clue that something is wrong with this picture.

The first edition of this book did not try to hide that it was a promotional piece of marketing and that is still what it is today even though now it is published by her own publishing company to make it look legitimate.

However it is truly just advertising for meat, albeit sophisticated, I will give her that. There is almost no truth in anything in this book. I have gone through each reference only to find that she is often referring to out of print or self-published materials. Rarely is there anything from a good journal and when there is, it does not mean what she says it means.

But most disturbing is the complete overlooking of the decades of high quality research showing that saturated fat and animal protein and yes even cholesterol are all highly correlated with diseases that are so epidemic today.

And of course there is no way she would ever talk about the tidal wave of evidence supporting vegan diets.

This book is just advertising parading as a cookbook. Buyer beware. Her organization, the Weston Price Foundation, is just as bad as Scientology, and they use exactly the same tactics.
