36 year old father of 3 boys. I was diagnosed with MS in 2009. I served in The United States Marines for four years. I believe that the only way to beat MS is to educate yourself about the disease but most importantly, educate yourself about being a more positive person.
The facts in this book are what makes it great. Listening to all the percentages of how unhealthy America currently is. If you do not go into this book openminded you will get nothing out of it. I used to be a major meat eater and milk drinker. I also have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I listened to this book because I needed to make a change. This book gave me the facts I needed to hear to make the change.
When they talked about the relationship of drinking milk to Multiple Sclerosis. I used to drink milk for every meal. Now I have MS. How can I argue with those facts?

I changed my eating habits based on the information in this book and have never felt better. Also, those last 10 pounds are finally coming off. Positive choices are easier when you understand what is at stake.
