Lesson Title: 

The "Cold" and "Warm" Qualities of Food

This bit of Persian folklore dates back to hundreds, perhaps thousands of years, long before the development of modern nutritional science and medicinal practices. It is derived directly from the Zoroastrian religious belief of four elements: earth, water, air, and fire.
