Riassunto: Two experts show that today's biggest health problem may be the consumption of too much unreliable information about nutrition. Using up-to-date information and basing their approach on sound scientific principles and legitimate studies, the authors help the reader sort fact from fiction, and, equally important, fact from "maybe".
From Library Journal:
Stare and Whelan have excellent credentials; Stare, formerly of Harvard University, is cofounder, with Whelan, of the American Council on Science and Health, and between them they have written more than 40 books. Parts of their new work can be lauded and parts of it deplored. Much of it duplicates material found in other nutrition books, even while the authors fault these titles for doing the same. A condescending tone, apparently owing to a bias toward alternative forms of medicine, may deter readers who might have benefited from the book's more useful sections. The authors give "grades" to some of the books they have chosen to evaluate, based on a minute sampling of the material. Sometimes information is partial: for example, they say that olestra is a "new and promising boon for dieters" without noting that it may deplete some nutrients in the body. A chapter on how research is conducted by scientists may not interest the average reader. The authors' sound advice of "moderation, variety, and balance" is the best part of the book.
