A groundbreaking book that separates fact from fiction in the ever-changing world of food and health, with a foreword by Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Not a week passes without one food-related issue or another making the headlines. We worry about additives, preservatives, eating disorders, hygiene, heart disease, cancer, and calories (just to name a few), so it's little wonder that we are utterly confused! In an attempt to make sense of the bewildering and often contradictory information on what to eat and why, the Discovery Health Channel® will debut The Truth About Food in September 2007. This major five-part series is hosted by Dr. Mehmet Oz, the bestselling author of YOU: The Owner's Manual. 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. This is the first book to finally assemble some of the most important findings and then put them through rigorous testing.
