and what he termed "kosher
junk food" than they should.
"The importance of diet
has been part of the Jewish
consciousness for so long it's
become genetic," said Dr.
Weiner, who also writes a
newsletter covering the
latest findings in medicinal
herb research.
"The Jewish obsession on
what you eat and how you
eat it is almost neurotic,"
said Dr. Weiner, who, it
should be noted, ate pasta
with tomato sauce (he nixed
the cheese) spiced up with
extra raw onions and garlic
during a recent luncheon
interview.
"Take the Jackie Mason
bit about the Jew who tells
the waiter, 'I don't want the
baloney next to the salami; I
don't want to sit too close to
the kitchen but not near the
door' and this and that,"
laughed Dr. Weiner, affec-
ting a Mason accent.
Dr. Weiner, who has
written 15 books on
medicinal herbs, nutrition,
aging, Alzheimer's disease
and other health topics, said
this "Jewish health food
legacy" also accounts for
what he said appears to be a
large number of Jews in the
contemporary American
health food industry.
He noted that the late
Robert Rodale, a Jew,
pioneered the current inter-
est in healthier foods.
TwinLab, the parent corn-
pany of Nature's Herbs —
the firm Dr. Weiner repre-
sents — is also owned by
Jews (curiously, Nature's
Herb's was started by Mor-
mons, who also follow strict
religious dietary guidelines).
Dr. Weiner, who travels
the nation appearing at
health food and natural
medicine trade shows, said
his experience (statistical
evidence is nonexistent) has
led him to believe that Jews

own "a very large percen-
tage" of the country's health
food stores.
"One reason why I love
these trade shows is they
remind me of my father's an-
tique store on (the Lower
East Side's) Ludlow Street,"
he said. "It feels the same to
me, except for the
Birkenstocks."

Dr. Weiner added that the
American health food in-
dustry has also started to
sell a great many Middle
Eastern foods, such as
tabouleh, a salad made from
bulgur wheat, and hummus,
a paste made from chickpeas
and sesame seeds.
Dr. Weiner, who has col-
lected plant samples in Fiji
and elsewhere in the South
Pacific and the Middle East
for the National Cancer In-
stitute's anti-tumor research
effort, is also an envi-
ronmental activist who be-
lieves that concern for the
planet is a natural extension
of Jewish concerns for diet

and animals.

His latest project is to help
save the endangered Pacific
yew tree, the bark of which
has yielded a potent anti-
cancer drug. Loggers have
long considered the yew to
be a weed tree, and have
destroyed a great many of
them while clearing economi-
cally valuable Douglas fir
from Oregon and Washington
state forests.
Dr. Weiner argues that the
yew should be spared so that
its ultimate medicinal worth
can be ascertained. "Ralph
Waldo Emerson said a weed
is a plant whose virtues have
not yet been discovered," Dr.
Weiner said.
"I say let's save the
`weeds' until we know what
they are good for. That, in a
nutshell, is the argument for
preserving endangered
species." ❑
