THE DANGERS OF CELERY
Why a National Fad May Be Injurious to Your Health
You've seen the newspaper articles, the promotions, the web pages by the thousands, extolling the wonders of the common celery. The public is unaware that excess celery is essentially a medicinal herb. Like any strong medicine (and one in a very toxic plant family) there are 16 potentially serious side-effects if large and even regular doses:
• Potentially fatal anaphylaxis (one of the world’s top allergens).
• Skin damage, resulting in severe sunburns or later skin cancers.
• Possible miscarriages, male infertility or fetal abnormalities.
• Suppressed detoxification of the liver and all cells in the body.
• Incompatibility with hundreds of medical drugs.
—Each issue is described with a full reference section of related scientific research.
This is the first book to give the full scientific proof of these persistent dangers, as well as a critical examination of the purported benefits. It is also a cautionary tale that explains the very real difference between a medicine and a food, what the real nature of "cure" is, and how to recognize accurate and overblown health claims.
