Aging increases our needs for many nutrients rich in live enzymes because our digestive ability is demolishing.     References Food and Healing: Annemarie Colbin Healing With Whole Foods: Paul Pitchford  Nourishing Traditions: Sally Fallon  Nutrition Against Disease: Roger Williams  Power Healing: Dr. Leo Galland  Price-Pottenger Foundation: Dr. Weston Price  Staying Healthy With The Seasons: Elson M.Hass, M.D.  The Book Of Macrobiotics-The Universal Way Of Health and Happiness: Michio Kushi  The Five Phases Of Food: John Garvey  The Natural Gourmet: Annemarie Colbin  The Poisons In Your Food: William Longgood  The Yellow EmperorÕs Classic Of InternalMedicine, Translated by Ilza Velth
