Politically Incorrect Nutrition: Finding Reality in the Mire of Food Industry Propaganda
Did you know that some noncaloric artificial sweeteners can actually make you fat--or even kill you? Did you know that the overconsumption of certain soy products can upset your hormonal balance and lead to hypothyroidism? Most people didn't, until now. Politically Incorrect Nutrition exposes many current and widely held beliefs foisted on both consumers and health-care practitioners by well-oiled, agenda-driven food industry propaganda. It analyzes popular claims and reveals what, in fact, is healthy--and what is decidedly unhealthy--by exploring the most current and objective scientific data regarding good nutrition.
If you want to provide the best possible food for yourself and your family, or if you simply want to learn the truth behind the many food myths that are presented to us day after day, Politically Incorrect Nutrition is must reading.
