Daphne Miller M.D in her book The Jungle Effect examines "the healthiest diets from around the world". Rather then focusing on hot spots - a community “where there is an unusually high number of people suffering from a particular disease.” Daphne Miller went on a exploration of cold spots - “a place or community where there are an unusually low number of people suffering from a particular disease.”
After mapping out many cold stops throughout the world, Daphne Miller then went on to discover what may have led to these cold spots. She travels to remote areas and focuses in on the local diet and lifestyle that she feels has attributed to these cold spots. Her book is readable and insightful with easy to follow recipes to bring those healthful diets home.
