t's not easy to be a health food junkie. Frankly, it's a lot of work. We know it, because we are health food junkies and have been for many years. In fact, we have been practitioners for over 20 years. During that time we have both lost more than 25 pounds and seen our cholesterol readings drop from over 200 to under 150 because we were following a vegan diet.
We thought we were doing just fine until the year 2000 when Dr. Steven Bratman brought a new kind of disease to the American public in his landmark book, Health Food Junkies: Overcoming the Obsession with Healthful Eating.
