KIRKUS REVIEW

Carlton Fredericks is the popular swami of the tv and lecture circuit; Herbert Bailey is a popular magazine writer who defended Krebiozeu some years ago; neither are doctors. Neither is Adelle Davis whose book on very similar lines Let's Get well appears also in this issue. Both books agree that Americans are not well fed and that extra vitamins are necessary, in almost every remedial or curative situation. Adelle Davis' book covers many more specific illnesses and gives many more specific checks or controls. Fredericks & Bailey restrict themselves to talking about more generalized conditions, heart, cancer, diabetes, alcoholism, glands, teeth (they're very anti-fluoridation), old age, and the reproductive system. Alarming and medically suspect statements occur: is cystic mastitis really a precancerous condition? There are also extensive discussions of diet in general, reduction, along with recommended meals. No one will argue with the overall contention and actually they infringe less on the professional medical domain than does Adelle Davis.
