Publisher's Summary

Most of us have heard of gluten - a protein found in wheat that causes widespread inflammation in the body. Americans spend billions of dollars on gluten-free diets in an effort to protect their health. But what if we've been missing the root of the problem? In The Plant Paradox, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry reveals that gluten is just one variety of a common and highly toxic plant-based protein called lectin. Lectins are found not only in grains like wheat but also in the "gluten-free" foods most of us commonly regard as healthy, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and conventional dairy products. Once ingested, these proteins incite a kind of chemical warfare in our bodies, causing inflammatory reactions that can lead to weight gain and serious health conditions.
At his waitlist-only clinics in California, Dr. Gundry has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases with a protocol that detoxes the cells, repairs the gut, and nourishes the body. Now, in The Plant Paradox, he shares this clinically proven program with listeners around the world.

Terrible narration, great book

The narrator speaks with exaggerated pronunciation, misplaced emphasis, and pauses in the wrong places. This book could have been narrated by Siri and come out sounding more human. Within the first few minutes, I had to listen carefully because I genuinely thought it was an AI narrating the story.

Question - don't authors or some other authority listen to these audiobooks prior to releasing them to the public? I can't understand how some of these narrators were given the thumbs up while recording these books. If it were my book, I'd make sure it was enjoyable to listen to before releasing it. Maybe it's just me, though.

I think this book was read by a robot. It's as though you're in kindergarten.
Very off-putting.
I had to stop listening and I'm sending it back.
