Dr. Lin believes that although medical science has made great progresses, good health, strength, and longevity depends primarily on good nutrition, not drugs. Diets that comprise about 2/3 of plant derived foods and 1/3 of animal derived foods are conducive to good health. Preferably, these foods should be minimally processed or refined. However, taking a sound nutritional supplement is necessary for those who seek prefect nutrition in order to promote strength, beauty, and longevity. The reason is that most nutrients are unevenly distributed among foods, so that common diets often do not provide adequate amounts of certain "essential nutrients" (the nutrients that the body needs but cannot make them).
