    The definitive comprehensive nutrition reference, July 7, 1999
    By A Customer
    For those looking for the omnibus, cover-all reference book on nutrition, this is it. It is a thoroughly comprehensive examination of nutrition from just about every possible facet. Dr. Haas incorporates most of the more modern and alternative thinking on nutrition, even going so far as to examine environmental and spiritual issues, while avoiding the extreme, faddish ideas either of the medical establishment or the alternative fringe. He really does seem to have taken the time to weigh the value of studies done in both the mainstream and alternative research communities and brought together the clear, probable truths from both camps. And by the same token, he provides warnings against the doubtful claims of both sides.
    This is not a book, however, for those looking for a quick, capsule synopsis of a dietary approach. Those people might be better served with Patrick Holford’s “Optimum Nutrition Bible” which provides much of the same information in a condensed form. Rather this book is ideal for those looking to make an informed decision based on their own choices.

    Should be everyone’s nutrition bible., November 27, 2000
    By 

    Dr Haas has written an exhausting, thorough and informative “bible” about everything from what carbs, proteins and fats are and how they work to every vitamin, mineral and supplement you can imagine to special diets for different stages of your life or special needs to recipes…it just covers everything. I especially have to rave about a Western doctor who recognizes the validity of things like food combining and Candidiasis.
    This book is over 1,100 pages and it’s just jam packed with more information than you will think you need, but then you’ll be surprised to find how many sections you’ll flip to for info that pertains to you and your family.
    I have a huge library of nutrition books and references that are really useful and well-written, but I’d toss them all just to have this one. If you are hesitant about the price or the size of the book, don’t be. You will find it to be incredibly useful, easy to understand and beneficial when applied to your own daily life. I know I did.
    This is far and away THE best nutrition book out there, I can’t see how anyone could top this, unless he releases it with more information one day (and I can’t see how there could be more.)

    Dr. Haas has put together one of the most complete nutrition books that can be enjoyed by the average reader. From what I have read, he makes no outrageous claims, though he does believe nutrition can offer health benefits (which would distinguish this book from a standard nutrition textbook). While the price may seem a little steep, there are 1140 pages that contain a wealth of information. The first 353 pages list virtually every popular nutrient (vitamins, minerals, fats, etc) and food category (such as beans, citrus fruits, etc). He even gives relevant information on the pseudo-vitamins such as Pangamic Acid (B15), amygdalin (B17), and Vitamin U. He also lists many of the popular diets and their benefits and drawbacks.
    He also includes a very helpful section on “the Environmental Aspects of Nutrition.” Possible pollutants and common food additives are discussed. He lists “88 Survival Suggestions.”
    Over 100 pages are dedicated to a Seasonal Cookbook. The foods are healthy, but possibly difficult for the average reader to obtain. It is possible with a little work however. There is a section on “Nutritional Application,” which has special diets and suggestions for people with cancer, heart disease, yeast syndrome, and other disorders. He also includes suggestions for executives, adults, children, alcoholics, and adolescents. Overall the Nutritional Application section is very complete.
    Finally he includes around 80 pages of health questionnaires that test health knowledge and actually intend to estimate one’s health level. I use this whenever I have general or specific health questions. I recommend it highly.
