AWAKENING HEALTH NIH and FDA – actually holds the patents to many drugs and vaccines that they also profit from. The intent of the information in the book is not so much to scare us, though it certainly does that; the intent is to expose the causal links behind many of the chronic illnesses plaguing us so we can have a hope of curing them. Illnesses like Lyme disease, Alzheimer’s, MS, Parkinson’s, autism, IBS, and Crohn’s disease can be shown to be connected to identifiable viruses and bacteria. While some people may be more genetically disposed to get certain diseases, they are only triggered when their systems are debilitated by toxins such as DDT, Mercury, and aluminum. If you thought DDT was banned, it turns out that, DDE, created by changing one little OH molecule in the formula, is now being used instead and with the same dire consequences. The good news is that the human body is remarkably resilient and given the right supportive therapies can heal itself. This does not happen overnight, however, but at least people can now have hope for a cure instead of despair. There is much information in this book that will make you shake your head with disbelief. I can only suggest that you read it and follow up by checking out the references at the end of the book to convince yourself whether or not to believe it. There is a lot of valuable information on how to preserve your health or restore it should you become ill, but you would probably want to seek out a holistic-minded health advisor to guide you. If you are a health practitioner you absolutely owe it to your patients and to your conscience to read this book. Remember, knowledge is power.  Reviewed by Miriam Knight INTERVIEW About the Author Dr. Kenneth Stoller completed his training at UCLA Medical School in 1986 and was a practicing board certified pediatrician for over two decades, focusing on brain injured children and adults.
