Tooth decay, cancers, arthritis, heart disease – these are just some of the conditions that the human body is naturally equipped to fight. Yet they are everywhere on the increase, because we ourselves seek out the agents of our destruction. Based on a lifetime's work and research, Dr Bircher-Benner's book points out the problem of modern living – faulty nutrition, which poisons the body with fatty proteins and unnatural additives.
