So I've started reading Clean: The Revolutionary Program to Restore the Body's Natural Ability to Heal Itself. It was a late night Amazon.com purchase when I was lured by the temptation of free shipping. And Gwenyth blogged about it. And it was only £3.
I'm only a few chapters in but so far it's thoroughly depressing. According to Alejandro Junger MD - everything is toxic. The food we eat, the air we breath, our house paint, our bed linen, our clothes, our meat, our shower curtains... Shower curtains! Cut me a break already.
I'm all for organic food and growing your own veggies and being green, but I also believe in everything in moderation - I think if you bought into his "everything is toxic" mantra you'd never leave the house.
I was actually kinda surprised when I just googled this photo of him. I thought he'd look far nuttier.
Its the first kind of diet/self help/mantra-esque book I've ever read - and I'm even kind of hesitant to even admit to reading it. I'm struggling with it so far - but I'm kind of curious to see where he goes with it.
I have the feeling he's going to recommend I clothe myself with a hemp sack and live in cave, snacking occasionally on organic soil.
I'll keep you posted...
