Dr. Michael R. Eades, an M.D. who blogs about nutritional science, presents his 2009 Bestseller list of books purchased via his blog. Top on the list is The Vegetarian Myth. Dr. Eades writes: 
The number one winner going away was Lierre Kieth’s brilliant The Vegetarian Myth.  If you haven’t read it, grab a copy ASAP.  For those of you who don’t know, Lierre was recently the victim of an assault at a San Francisco reading.  Masked thugs came out from behind the stage and smashed her in the head and face with pies laced with cayenne pepper.  After the assault took place, while Lierre was trying to get the burning pepper out of her eyes, the audience (of mainly vegetarians) cheered.  It was truly disgusting.  Richard Nikoley and Tom Naughton reported on the assault here and here.  Jimmy Moore has a  interview with Lierre about the attack here. Tom Naughton proposes a rationale for such behavior here.

Not only that, but grains break down into sugar in the body which then FEEDS the fungi that may already be in our body. Grains, even whole grains, are NOT the health food conventional thinking says it is.
