It is always in the best interest of those who market foods to make grandiose claims regarding their nutritional value, regardless of whether actual scientific proof exists to support such a claim. Even diligent and educated consumers often have difficulty discerning facts from mere theory or pure marketing hype.

As the incidence of childhood obesity in the United States continues to increase at an alarming rate and food costs skyrocket, this book arrives at a perfect time for health-conscious consumers, providing an authoritative reference for anyone looking to make wise eating decisions at home, work, school, or in restaurants. Healthy Foods: Fact versus Fiction is the result of a collaborative effort between a medical doctor and an award-winning journalist and author on nutrition. This book provides actual research findings to shed light on the true benefits of the most popular health foods—and in some cases, debunk misconceptions surrounding certain foods.

Fun Read, but Poor Study Selection

 on June 29, 2013
By Igor Klibanov
This book was a fun read. It made you understand what are the “active ingredients” in different foods, and what their medicinal effects are.

Excellent reference, but maybe not for every home library

This is one of those books that should be in every public library; if it isn’t in yours, make the suggestion to your librarians to get it. The authors have provided heavily footnoted information on fifty foods often mentioned in discussions of what makes up a healthy diet.
