"Diet and food choices are something people get overly dogmatic and judgemental about. When it comes to food people think that one size fits all. The pendulum is always at an extreme when it comes to food. We know that herbs need to be individualized in people. I hope that we will start approaching diet the way we approach herbs." Richard Mandelbaum
