    Hi everyone,

    I received this book few weeks ago.
    I think that the authors had a great influence on RP's views on thyroid.
    In fact, the info on diet (milk,eggs,fruits,fruits juice,meat,liver ect....), on vitamin A beeing anti-thyroid, PABA, oestrogen, the importance of B1,B6,B3,B5 ect....are almost identicals to what RP usually says to people.
    I knew that this is the book that Ray often recommends reading for people and, in fact, it's really like the "Peat's method explained for dummies" (like me).
    The explanation are all crystal clear but the authors seemed to be very reluctant transfering the experimentation made on rodents to humans ( especially regarding goitrogenic substances and their effects on the thyroid).
    Does anyone here also read the book and found it usefull?

    Has anyone got the book with page 412? I have received it from Amazon.com and page 412 is missing. Received two other copies of the book and page 412 is still missing! So now I have 3 books and still no page 412. If anyone has it could the scan it and send it by e-mail (I would provide my e-mail address through PM)
    Thanks!

    I would like to know that as well. Carrying a huge book around isn't very convenient.
