Foods That Harm, Foods That Heal

Editorial Reviews

In a blizzard of conflicting nutritional claims and information, here is a book
that gets down to basics, debunks many myths, and gives the reader a useful and
comprehensive look at food, nutrition, and health. Based on sound science and
the research of more than 300 nutritional experts worldwide, it is well
organized and indexed, and will be a refreshingly clear reference for anyone who
wants to know about nutrition and health (know anyone who doesn't?). One of the
best books I've seen on the subject.

From Booklist
Alphabetical listings in this clearly written resource span general categories
of illnesses, food groups, additives, and normal life passages, such as aging.
Other entries refer to specific medical conditions or individual dietary
elements--from acne and alcohol to zucchini and zwieback. Each medical entry
recommends helpful foods, followed by those that should be avoided. The format
allows easy access to information, with entries offering straightforward advice,
explanations, and answers to pertinent questions. Case studies illustrate
examples of positive changes in eating habits or lifestyle that can lead to
improved health. Alice Joyce
