Michele, that's amazing improvement for your insulin injections!! And you attribute that to cinnamon?
About soy, I saw all of that about soy. I have seen much research to the contrary, including Dr. Li's work (see video, transcript, research at his website, and the eattodefeat website (look for evidence. They cite many sources for everything they are investigating). I've decided it was all "food wars" from manufacturers of wheat who were losing too much money.
I keep thinking about the section of the video and chart which shows soy extract like is in soy sauce being as potent anti-angiogenic as the most potent cancer treatment drugs.
In my 10 years of follow-up after surgery for breast cancer, Soy was one product I was asked to avoid as its effect of developing cancer was not a completed study at the time. So I have gotten away from that element. I have not read the book you are taking about but am reading "There is a Cure for Diabetes" by Gabriel Cousens, MD. who also authored Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine. For a fact I know there is no Cure for Diabetes, just for Control. Many of the foods listed in the book are on the list for AA foods. CINNAMON is most often listed in this book and it is widely used by me. Effect, I have much lower Blood Sugars to the point that Insulin injections have dropped from 7 a day to only 2 at the present. So that book you have mentioned now is on my buck list of Books to Read.

I loved his book. It does talk about many different aspects and it also tells the author's own story. But I was VERY impressd with all the explanation he gives about food and how it can be used to prevent and heal from cancer.
Keep it simple.

No I haven't read it. From the website it looks like his work looked at many more things besides the anti-angiogenic benefits of the foods on the AA list. Dr. Li's work is more narrow. The anti-angiogenic food list should fit in with any healthy diet.
If there is a donut diet out there, I think people trying to follow it would have a hard time trying to eat AA foods. I guess you might find a store that adds in flax or soy flour, or sprinkles walnuts on the top of the frosting.
