THE FOOD PHARMACY GUIDE TO GOOD EATING by Jean Carper

THE FOOD PHARMACY GUIDE TO GOOD EATING

KIRKUS REVIEW

 In The Food Pharmacy (1988), Carper cited a slew of research that found various foods-not all of them the expected ``health foods''-to be protective against cancer or heart disease or otherwise health-promoting. Here, she assembles more research reports, sprinkles the book with numerous little boxes containing tips or facts or items of advice, and fills it up with recipes that apply the information. Among them are a USDA researcher's ``Anticancer Slaw,'' an attractive black-bean salad spruced up with feta cheese and mint leaves, a chile made with white beans and chicken, and a gazpacho vegetable patÇ that Carper calls ``a powerhouse of vitamin C.'' They'll go down easily, especially with all the motivating upbeat information.
