Back to Our Roots: Food for the Gods! is a comprehensive nutritional aide and cookbook containing both dietary health information and recipes. Back to Our Roots: Food for the Gods! contains recipes chosen because they can be easily integrated into the African-American lifestyle. Many of the anti-sickling foods are root and sprout vegetables. The book also contains the history and cause of Sickle Cell Anemia, the dietary and nutritional practices of our ancestors, personal testimonies of the effects of the anti-sickling foods in the diet, and scientific evidence of the positive effects that these foods can have if incorporated into the diet. The nutritional and dietary information presented can be used to help control Sickle Cell Anemia, hypertension, diabetes, and some life-threatening cancers.
