Gluten, How modern wheat intoxicates us

Julien Venesson

Are you sure that wheat is good for you?

Public authorities, nutritionists and food manufacturers encourage you to eat more and more
cereals, “for your health”. Julien Venesson’s survey shows that by eliminating wheat from your diet,
you could be healthier.

To reduce world hunger and increase yields, agronomists have profou ndly altered wheat genes. They
gave birth to monstrous varieties, Frankenblés. As a result, these modern wheat are much richer in
gluten than the ancestral varieties.

This book gives you an overview of the scientific research conducted on gluten and exclusive
interviews with specialists in the field. Above all, it gives you the keys to maintain or regain your

Anticancer: Daily actions for the health of body and mind – Dr. David Servan-Schreiber

Dr. David Servan-Schreiber

In this best-seller translated into forty languages and sold more than a million copies worldwide,
David Servan-Schreiber, suffering from a brain tumour 15 years earlier, recounts his confrontation
with the disease and presents a new vision of the fight against cancer: how, in addition to
conventional treatments, nutrition, the psychological dimension or even physical activity can help
strengthen natural defences and thus prevent the disease, slow its progress or contribute to its cure.

In particular, a large part of the book is devoted to the nutritional approach, and explains how
modern Western diets, too rich in refined sugars, white flours, hydrogenated and omega-6 fatty

acids, can promote the progression of cancers, and how these factors can be reduced through the
consumption of detoxifying foods of better nutritional quality (vegetables, fruits, aromatic herbs,
spices, etc.).

Nutritherapy – Dr Jean-Paul Curtay

Dr. Jea n-Paul Curtay

This book, written by one of France’s leading references in this field, Dr Jean-Paul Curtay, presents all

the facets of this discipline, which was born some forty years ago in the United States and is still full
of future: nutritherapy.

In short, nutritherapy is the combination of a positive and judicious rebalancing of food, through the
consumption of foods that are more interesting from a nutritional point of view, and active
micronutrient supplementation, daily or circumstantial.

This book is intended for both amateurs who wish to improve their knowledge of nutrition, and in
particular of micronutrients, but also for health professionals who wish to incorporate the preventive
and curative power of good nutrition into their practice.

dieticians or sports coaches, as well as all sports enthusiasts (professionals, high-level and leisure), by
addressing topics ranging from improving sports performance through better nutrition to controlling
body weight while respecting the basic rules of health and well-being.
