Summary and Info
I purchased this book hoping that it would provide realistic advice. Instead, the statements made in this book are unsubstantiated (the authors do not point to any scientific studies to back up their claims), and often directly contradict advice held by the mainstream medical community. My immediate reaction after reading this book 3 months into my pregnancy? The feeling that as a pregnant women living in a city, I am screwed no matter what I decide to do. If I decide to swim indoors for exercise to avoid exposure to air pollution which could result from running outside, well, that's a bad idea. If I decide to continue to work full time in an office environment, resulting in exposure to computers, printers, and copiers, that's a bad idea too.
My advice is to steer clear of this book.
