I haven't read it, don't even recall if I have heard of it, but the author's name sounds familar. I went to read the blurb on Amazon and it does mention the book was first published in 1987.
You can read an excerpt from the book as well, I found this part interesting,"The second study reviewed in this report noted that between 1985 and 1995the proportion of children under the age of 5 who were developing diabetes had doubled. This apparently mirrors what is happening throughout Europe and many other parts of the world."http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0852...04#reader-link
I too would be interested to know if anyone has read this book, and what they thought.
