E-BOOK EXCERPT

From reviews of the hardback edition: '...explains the difference between food intolerance (which we can all suffer from) and food allergy (which is very rare). Throughout, there are case studies of people who have been badly affected by their diet, until the cause was identified. All theadvice given in this book has been medically or scientifically substantiated.' Greenock Telegraph '...an excellent and well-written guide ... beautifully argued and solidly evidence-based ... illustrated throughout with case reports that add the spice of human interest ... a worthy addition to thekitchen cookbook shelf.' Times Higher Very few people are allergic to food, but most of us suffer adverse effects when we eat certain things. The reason is that our body is intolerant of particular chemicals, and it reacts to them as if we were being poisoned. We then experience a variety ofsymptoms such as stomach ache, headache, sweating, skin rashes, diarrhoea, palpitations, and vomiting. When several of these affect us at one time they are likely to indicate that we are suffering from food intolerance and this is what the book is all about. If we can identify which components ofour diet are likely to cause intolerance, then we can make sure we don't take in too much at one meal and so provoke the body to react. Human metabolism has developed to cope with small amounts of all kinds of non- nutrients in our food, even some that are highly toxic. What it cannot cope with arelarge amounts, and for sensitive people even relatively small amounts can trigger the body to over-react. This is why the same meal can affect people in different ways. There are only a few common chemicals that can provoke an intolerance reaction: alcohol, benzoates, caffeine, dopamine, histamine,monosodium glutamate, nitrate/nitrite, phenylethylamine, salicylates, serotonin, solanine, sorbates, tryptamine/octopamine, and tyramine. The book examines the principal causes of food intolerance, explaining how this differs from food allergy, which few suffer from, and identifies the chemicalsthat cause it--many of which are natural--and the foods that contain them. It also reveals why food intolerance occurs, what its symptoms are, and why some people are so badly affected by a particular non- nutrient, while others suffer no upset at all. The book also contains chapters on naturaltoxins, and unnatural food additives and food contaminants. It explains the key nutrients in our diet and highlights the foods richest in the essential one that we may be lacking. Most of the chapters are devoted to a few key non-nutrients that account for the majority of cases of intolerance.Each section is illustrated with actual case notes from people who have been badly affected by their diet. The book ends on an upbeat note with a final chapter giving dietary advice for maintaining a healthy heart. If you've ever wondered why something you eat does not agree with you, then this isthe book that will help you discover what this is likely to be, and why your system reacts so badly to it. Written in an easy-to-understand style, Was It Something You Ate? will take you though all aspects of food, especially identifying those non-nutrients that provoke a toxic response and make usill.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

In this outrageous and delectable new volume, the Man Who Ate Everything proves that he will do anything to eat everything. That includes going fishing for his own supply of bluefin tuna belly; nearly incinerating his oven in pursuit of the perfect pizza crust, and spending four days boning and stuffing three different fowl—into each other-- to produce the Cajun specialty called “turducken.” It Must’ve Been Something I Ate finds Steingarten testing the virtues of chocolate and gourmet salts; debunking the mythology of lactose intolerance and Chinese Food Syndrome; roasting marrow bones for his dog , and offering recipes for everything from lobster rolls to gratin dauphinois. The result is one of those rare books that are simultaneously mouth-watering and side-splitting. From the Trade Paperback edition.

“My name’s Ryan,” he said clearly. “How in the world did you get in my room?” “You know, Kay, leaving doors open the way you do this window is just an invitation for someone to come in.” He smiled at the thought. “Like me. Unfortunately you wouldn’t want people like me coming through your window.” “And why’s that? You’re going to hurt me? You’re going to steal from my house? Dude you have no idea who you’re messing with.” “That’s where your wrong. I know exactly who I’m dealing with, and in turn that’s where you fall short because you have no idea who you’re dealing with. If you did, you’d be begging for me not to kill you.” I swallowed hard knowing that he wasn’t a normal burglar. He’s someone that knows me, but just like he said I didn’t know him. Did he know I have powers? I quickly thought of pain but all he did was smile. Did he know what I was doing? He stepped forward as he tapped the side of his temple. “Don’t try to get in here little girl because you’re nowhere near my strength. In fact you’re the complete opposite of what people described you as.” My eyes widened in shock. He knew who I was and what I could do. “But how--” “How I know you? Simple, you learn about that person. That’s what you do when you go after someone before you kill them.”

Mississippi Sissy is the stunning memoir from Kevin Sessums, a celebrity journalist who grew up scaring other children, hiding terrible secrets, pretending to be Arlene Frances and running wild in the South.

In his memoir, Kevin Sessums brings to life the pungent American south of the 1960s and the world of the strange little boy who grew there. "Kevin Sessums is some sort of cockeyed national treasure.” —Michael Cunningham

E-BOOK EXCERPT

The search for hidden treasure brings Rodger Shallot face to face with murder... In Paul Doherty's The Grail Murder, Richard Shallot's third journal, he must pit his wits against the terrifying and mysterious Templars. Perfect for fans of Ellis Peters and C.J. Sansom. In 1522 the rogue Roger Shallot and his sober-sided master Benjamin Daunbey are sent for by Cardinal Wolsey. Stafford, Duke of Buckingham, has been arrested for treason and Benjamin and Roger are made to witness his bloody execution. The true reason for Buckingham's downfall soon becomes apparent: he was searching at Templecombe Manor and Glastonbury Abbey in Somerset for two precious relics - the Holy Grail and Excalibur, the sword of King Arthur. Benjamin and Shallot are ordered to Templecombe, accompanied by the leaders of King Henry VIII's dreaded secret service, the Agentes in Rebus, to find these relics for the King. They must pit their wits against the Templars, a secret organisation plotting against the Tudors, of which Buckingham may have been a part and who may still have a member of their society close to the crown. The difficulties that wily Shallot - running true to his boast of possessing the fastest legs and quickest wits in Christendom - has to face soon make their presence felt: a duel, blackmail, the curses of a witch, the grisly hand of glory, decapitated heads, mysterious fires - and silent murder in the eerie Templar chapel. What readers are saying about The Grail Murders: 'This book had it all, locked room murders, a mysterious country manor house, an abbey, Templar conspiracy and Arthurian folklore - excellent!' 'Fascinating... historical mysteries brought to life with lots of accurate historical facts' 'Excellent story. Always enjoyed the Shallot stories, he is a lovable rogue'
