The toxins and carcinogens found in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the foods we eat can overload our systems and endanger good health. Whether you're born with surprisingly "good" genes or "bad" genes, you can still boost your body's ability to cleanse itself of these harmful substances by following the breakthrough program presented in The Detox Revolution.

By now, the health benefits of such foods as green tea and soy have been well touted. But what you may not know is that through a carefully structured diet balancing the right "superfoods" with supplements and lifestyle strategies you can help your body perform at optimum levels of health and energy, while greatly reducing the risk of disease. Written by an internationally respected, thirty-five-year veteran in cancer research and nutrition, The Detox Revolution promotes the importance of building a new, more rational food pyramid, with special emphasis on incorporating surprising superfoods, including blueberries, grapefruit, carrots, rosemary, ginger, broccoli sprouts, onions, walnuts, spinach, watermelon, and salmon, as well as such sinful favorites as red wine, dark chocolate, and coffee! Based on the American Medical Center's heavily researched findings, Thomas J. Slaga, Ph.D., clearly outlines how practicing healthy eating habits strengthens your body's detoxification and immune systems, thus preventing such degenerative and deadly diseases as diabetes, arthritis, stroke, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.

Throughout his revolutionary program, Dr. Slaga incorporates scores of helpful tips from the research done at AMC Cancer Research Center, which proclaim the many detoxification benefits of:

  • Installing water filters in the kitchen and bathroom taps, as well as showerheads
  • Adding a little watercress to your salads and sandwiches everyday
  • Incorporating a liberal amount of spices in your diet
  • Marinating meats with garlic, onions, turmeric, or rosemary
  • Finding a dry cleaner that utilizes less harmful cleaning methods
  • And much more!

The Detox Revolution's easy-to-follow program includes a cancer risk test, Dr. Slaga's research-based supplement recommendations, and delicious, innovative recipes that make it easy and tasty to incorporate the superfoods into your everyday eating.
