Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices: Whats Missing in Your Body? by Norman W. WalkerI was sorely disappointed when I received this book in the mail last night. I was expecting a fun and informative recipe book filled with fresh fruits and vegetables to make my body happy. Instead, Dr. N. W. Walkers Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices: Whats Missing in Your Body? was a bunch of dated information delivered by a preachy and arrogant Dr. The book was published in 1970 (a fact which I should have checked prior to ordering I suppose) which makes the information nearly fifty years old. Much has transpired in the world of nutrition and our understanding of how the body works in the last fifty years and so, in reading this book, one has to be careful not to be ignorant of current ideas.
This book advocates drinking raw fruit and vegetable juices as is apparent from the title, but, not only does it encourage this practice as part of a healthy lifestyle - it also promotes it as a main source of nutrients, denouncing and diminishing the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables raw. It does make small mention of how and why fiber is important in a balanced diet but it is clear that the author feels that the benefits of the juice weighs more heavily on the healthy functioning of our bodies than does the fiber found in whole foods.
The author is a staunch vegetarian and a raw food vegetarian at that. Of course, if thats how you choose to live, I have no problem with it, but what I dont appreciate is someone treating cooked food as if it had the plague. I get why hes against fried foods; there isnt much, if any, nutritional value in a french fry, but a raw potato is no fun at all! This was the paragraph that really turned me off:
Strict vegetarians who eschew cows milk, flour, grain, and concentrated sugar products, are not afflicted with these [respiratory] troubles, particularly if they were brought up from childhood to shun and avoid these foods. This is not by any manner or means fanatical. It is just plain common sense and perfectly natural, and proved beyond question or doubt from experience (25).
The language in the paragraph is exceedingly pompous. I just dont buy it. I dont have any respiratory problems, and never have, and I include milk, flour and grains (as well as sugar but I have to partially agree with the good Dr. on this point) in my diet. Also, earlier he suggest exclud[ing] grains and starches (24) which isnt healthy as our bodies need these elements to maintain a healthy metabolism and digestive flow.
Another big issue I have with this book is that it is very self-promotey. He mentions his other book several times, in big, bolded capital letters and highly recommends it to everyone. Put a list of your work at the beginning or end of your book and maybe mention it once or twice during the text but thats my limit. I dont want to hear about how awesome you think you are, I want to read about the subject - thats why I picked the book up in the first place. I also found it disconcerting when he mixed in some very religious sentiments to his text and didnt differentiate this religious opinion from scientific fact - he even used a quote from the bible to help support his argument (75).
As I mentioned, I was quite disappointed with this book. I must admit I didnt read all the words because I was so disenchanted but I certainly got the gist of what Dr. Walker was interested in - self promotion and righteousness! I wouldnt recommend this book to anyone; there are other more recent, more reliable and less judgemental books on this topic out there!
Norwalk Juicer Review
The Model is actually a combination of two machines sharing the same body and powered by the same motor. A Vortex Triturating Head for complete cutting and grinding and a Hydraulic Press which extracts the nutrients from the pulp provided by the Triturator. Vortex Triturator The Model utilizes the Vortex Triturator, a helical cutter-grinder mechanism with greatly improved ability to cut the fibers of raw foods to enable the maximum extraction of nutrients. The tremendous pressure exerted by the Norwalk Hydraulic Press gently and completely extracts the natural fruit sugars, vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes, and other vital elements. This imparts to the juice an extremely fine quality and flavor which is unequaled by any other method of juice extraction. Stainless steel parts; Solid metal construction, no plating.
Although an updated model the Norwalk has recently come out, the overall design of the original Norwalk juicer has been retained because it produces such nutritious juices. The juices it produces are best described as extraordinary. This juicer uses a two-step extraction process. It unlocks as many of their nutrients as possible. Because the press exerts extreme pressure on the mash, it completely extracts the vitamins, minerals, enzymes and natural sugars locked within the produce.

There seems to be a problem serving the request at this time. Drinking juices can have a significant positive impact on your health. Norwalk juicers can be used for making juices out of all kinds of raw produce. Browse eBay for an amazing variety of these juicers at affordable prices. Since it was designed for juicing organic products, the effectiveness of extraction is a plus when it comes to more expensive fruits and vegetables.
This process is not made easier by there being hundreds of different models from dozens of brands to choose from. This allows me to write a page like this, where I show you my 5 favorite picks. This way you can choose the one s that look interesting to you, and then pick from those. In this guide, I go over the most important factors and parameters to look at when choosing the right juicer for your business. The Norwalk Model Cold Press Juicer is our favorite because it has the newest technology and does a wonderful job getting the most juice possible out of your produce. It is made of food-grade stainless steel, and it has a vortex cutter that cuts through food fibers down to the cellular level. The company says that the parts are removable for quick cleaning, and we agree that they are removable, but there are many parts, an elbow, and tiny holes to clean.
There are several superlatives that I can describe the Norwalk Juicer , it is the bulkiest, heaviest, the most difficult to use and clean, and certainly the most expensive juicer on the planet. One thing that I would like to commend this product on is the unrivaled juice extraction efficiency. It produces the driest pulp among all types of juice extractors. The Norwalk Hydraulic Juice Press has two parts, the vortex cutter left side and the hydraulic press right side. The blade will then grate your produce and turn it into a pulp but it still has all the juices. Soft fruits like pineapple, watermelon, pomegranate, etc. The cutter spins at RPM which require sharpening every once in a while.
