Product Description


"...easily the most important book on diet and health to be published in the past one hundred years. It is clear, fast-paced and exciting to read, rigorous, authoritative... If Taubes were a scientist rather than a gifted, resourceful science journalist, he would deserve and receive the Nobel Prize in Medicine" -- Richard Rhodes, winner of the Pulitzer Prize

"Read this, and you'll be astonished at the shaky foundations of dietary medicine and health advice...First off, I was struck by how little science does know, what we take for established fact if often partial truth at best. Conjectures are, apparently, made on imperfect research...compelling reading" -- Sue Baker, Publishing News

Book Description

A brilliant debunking of the popular misconceptions on health and diet that also takes a hard look at the corporate world of the diet industry --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
