Years ago Adelle Davis was on the Johnny Carson show. He asked her how to choose what to eat? Her answer was terrific.

When Adelle Davis, the famous nutrition writer, appeared on the Johnny Carson Show, she was asked to give a "rule of thumb" for healthy eating. She said, "If it is advertised in the media, don't buy it." An excellent rule. Unfortunately, the TV station blipped her out. Viewers never heard the comment.


There are some foods advertised that are good to eat. However too often what Adelle Davis replied is true most of the time.

According to Nourishing Traditions author food company ads, that cost millions, are still targeting children with questionable foods. :roll:

Her book made me aware of trans fats in the 70's. I quit using Crisco when I found out it was a trans fat. Recently read that Crisco was always a trans fat. That surprised me. Don't know is it still is, but probably not.

Some of you liked her books too, thought you'd like this quote.

Take care. :D
