Testimonials Needed for Montel Williams’ Book on Healthy Living
Talk show host Montel Williams said on a recent show about parenting and feeding children how important it is to get children off junk food. And he is currently writing a book about how a whole foods and raw foods diet is helping him deal with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). He is soliciting stories for the book, as stated on his website: “I am writing a new book about healthy living, and I’d love to tell the world your story. If you have changed your life through healthy eating and/or exercise, send me an email explaining your transformation. I may excerpt and adapt your comments for my new book. This is our chance for you and me to inspire the world!” What might happen if Weston A. Price Foundation members flooded his inbox with stories about how our health and our children’s health improved through nourishing traditional diets?
