With food-related issues in the headlines every week, we worry about additives, preservatives, eating disorders, hygiene, heart disease, cancer, and calories.  In an effort to make sense of the bewildering and often contradictory information on what to eat and why, the Discovery Health Channel® produced The Truth About Food in September 2007.  This companion book to the series synthesizes years of research and groundbreaking experiments by leading research centers, hospitals, and doctors carried out especially for the series. The most important findings are assembled and tested in this text.  

Timely topics include eating to feel and appear more youthful; foods that aid in fertility, weight maintenance, and athletic performance; how to raise kids with healthy eating habits; and common myths and misconceptions about food and nutrition.

User-friendly and engaging, The Truth About Food features over 60 illustrations, clear explanations of scientific terms, helpful tips, concise chapter abstracts, and more.
