This book proves that Americans are malnourished: It all began in 1875 when mills producing white flour dotted the American landscape and its nutrition began declining. The milling of wheat was a fateful circumstance for it help change the health of a nation: The fiber, vitamin B, vitamin E, some minerals, unsaturated fatty acids, and essential amino acids were short of missing, and diseases such as heart disease and high blood pressure quickly followed.
The author suffered from allergies to milk, wheat, citric acid, and yellow dye #5 and exhibited a serious response to an American well-balanced, low-fat diet. Research into the new American diet and a fight for life began. "A malnourished America" book was the result of that experience.
