Crayhon, host of the nationally syndicated radio show ``The Voice of Wellness,'' and a New York-area nutritionist who heads Designs for Health, an organization devoted to devising customized nutrition plans for clients, has surveyed his audience's most commonly asked questions with bearing on health and addressed them in this useful book. In a chapter titled``Is Sugar Bad for You?,'' for example, he explains the effect of sugar on the immune system: ``When we are healthy and avoid sugar, our protective white blood cells circle the body like energetic prizefighters knocking out viruses and bacteria...yet these same protective pugilists can be knocked unconscious by sugar.'' Crayhon reconsiders the health benefits and drawbacks of alcohol (and lauds red wine for its antioxidants). He explains how to spur energy by natural means, such as aerobic exercise, quitting caffeine, and taking in ``energizing nutrients'' like magnesium and potassium. His writing, direct and concise, covers much ground in a well-organized and friendly manner that will bring current knowledge of nutrition to a broad audience. (Jan.)
