Toxic Superfoods: How Oxalate Overload is Making You Sick--and How to Get Better

Sally K Norton


Toxic Superfoods is a masterful contribution to the literature on nutrition. Here you will find a sweeping examination of oxalates from all angles—medical, scientific, historical, dietary, and cultural. You’ll learn why oxalate toxicity has remained invisible in medical and nutritional practice, and discover a simple and practical program to get relief from the myriad conditions that oxalate toxicity can create and aggravate.

Readers will be inspired to change their diets and contribute to a groundswell that leads the medical establishment to take a closer look at oxalates. It’s impossible to read this book without coming away convinced of the benefits of some simple changes to your diet.

Everyone should read this very well written, documented and easily readable book. I am just wondering and have surmised why it was not listed in the last Acres USA. I am just guessing that the almond growers got your attention as almonds, beets and spinach are the worst offenders for overload. I would appreciate a response even though it will probably be almond friendly. Thanks Jim

great book!

This book should change what food people choose to eat. It turns out that many of the plant-based foods we are told are healthy are actually poison. I followed the suggestions in this book and feel incredibly better! A must read!!
