I was just made aware that Ross Horne, the Australian health author, died last summer. I
stumbled into a conversation with Steve Solomon, the owner of, and he
told me about it. Apparently, Ross was well in his 80's, and the cause of death was cancer,
prostate. His wife, Teri, is doing fine.

Here's a quote from Steve:
"Ross was well into his 80s. For the last 18 months he was struggling with cancer that
started mainly in the prostate. He did okay for a year or so with it. I don't take it as any
invalidation on Ross' understandings of diet and health that he died of cancer; everyone dies
of something. And most of his life was not conducted in the style of Simon Pure."

"His books will live on on my site."

And in my heart, as well, for a job well done. RIP

For those who are unfamiliar with his work, I recommend both his last books, available free
to read online:
