Available for the first time in mass market paperback, here is the smash New York Times bestseller (nearly half a million copies sold) that demonstrates how food can prevent and cure more than 100 health problems -- from the common cold to cancer.

"Food -- Your Miracle Medicine" is the first fully documented, comprehensive guide to the miraculous healing powers of food. Written by an authority on health and nutrition whose syndicated column has more than 10 million readers nationwide, and based on more than 10,000 scientific studies, it reveals such astonishing, little-known discoveries as:

a daily cup of yogurt can wipe out 25% of common cold symptoms

an avocado a day can improve blood cholesterol twice as much as a low-fat diet

a third of a teaspoon of ginger helps alleviate migraine headaches.

Jean Carper shows readers how to use this miracle medicine to achieve optimum health, prevent disease, and avoid debilitating conditions, adverse side-effects, and costly medical treatments.

"There's a wealth of useful information in this book". -- USA Today
