A buddy of mine went to the hospital in April for chugging soy sauce. I had no idea a large amount of it could be lethal. Thankfully, he didn’t drink nearly enough to kill him (I believe 2 liters is lethal.)
While my Youth Pastor was at the hospital, the Doctor spoke with him about all the seemingly harmless foods that can be lethal if consumed in an irregular way. One of which was peanut butter.
This was a surprise to me, and a great many others. It turns out, that if you choke on peanut butter, there is no hope for you. Without bread, apple or some other food to keep it company, it can lodge in your throat and suffocate you despite all the efforts of Doctors or Nurses.

I am afraid to say, that my comments for the most part will cease. I have very little to appreciate about this book.
As I have said, it is well written. The Author, William P. Young, puts his thoughts and opinions on paper in a way few people can.
But opinions are like peanut butter. A wonderful thing when spread on foods like bread, bananas or apples. But without any substance, with no scripture to back his opinion up, it is lethal.

I wanted to read this book so badly partly because I heard of the controversy surrounding it. However, I never exposed myself to outside opinions aside from quick remarks made from my friends. The following is the result of a non-biased reading.
