In Your Brain on Food, Dr. Gary Wenk expands his discussion of the effects of specific foods on the brain in a completely updated second edition.

-Is your aluminum cookware hurting you?
-Can tryptophan supplements improve your mood?
-How do fruits and vegetables protect us from aging?
-Why does eating chocolate make you feel so angry?
-Does our brain want us to be obese?
Never forget--everything we consume can affect how we think, feel, and act.
