Your Body’s Many Cries for Water by F. Batmanghelidj: most people simply don’t drink enough water. Highly recommended.

Cure Tooth Decay: Heal and Prevent Cavities With Nutrition Cure Tooth Decay is written by a man whose baby daughter needed so much dental work that the author was moved to research the cause and cure for dental problems instead of subjecting his daughter to the treatments.

His recommendations are diet related and simple. They’re also well-explained, so you get a clear understanding of WHY certain foods, like sugars, destroy your teeth.

I got the book from my library, but you can get it on Amazon here. Other people’s reviews are really helpful here too.
