Can there be a more qualified person than the Chairman of the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health to write this book. In this fabulous book you will learn what the latest research shows about how eating, alcohol use, exercise and not smoking can help you avoid some diseases and birth defects. The book also explains how to read the latest health headlines and interpret the studies they are based on in the future. The lessons are summarized into a Healthy Eating Pyramid that you will find easy to understand, apply, and remember. Moreover, the book contains a lot of helpful information about how to shop for more nutritious and healthful foods, and easy-to-follow recipes.
This book redresses some of the major errors in the USDA food pyramid which failed to actually promote people's health. This book will be especially valuable to those who like to get their information from highly credible sources, especially from within the medical community.
A highly recommended book for all age-groups.
