A show about healthy living, primarily through a raw/living food diet and lifestyle.

Rhio also explores other natural approaches for achieving good health and the politics of food.
In this interview we get the real life story of how a 64-year old man healed his prostate cancer with apricot kernels. What are apricot kernels you ask?
In the center of a fresh apricot there is a pit. If you take a hammer and open the pit, there is a kernel inside which resembles a small almond. Apricot kernels, peach seeds, apple seeds, plum seeds, and many other whole foods contain Vitamin B-17. Learn the theory behind why Vitamin B-17 heals cancer… but in the case of Glenn Thrash, it was not a theory but a reality, as he is now cancer-free.

The second book chronicles her trip to 7 countries to find and convert favorite ethnic recipes into vegan cuisine, and it looks like she succeeded brilliantly.
