San Francisco physician and writer Daphne Miller has just published a book, The Jungle Effect, in which she combines case histories of patients, research from her own travels, and 50 pages of recipes. The result makes a good case for indigenous diets — and shows those of us who eat primarily within a framework of Western foods how we too can eat to avoid chronic disease.
Culinate’s Kim Carlson talked with Dr. Miller recently about how she came to write this book and how she learned that even those of us who buy most of our food at supermarkets can find the ingredients we need to make tasty, wholesome foods that just might help us live longer.
