As entertaining as he is revealing, Professor Bender debunks many of the common myths about health foods and diets, with the contention that there is no such thing as a "health food" - only a health food industry. He examines claims made for health foods, specialty diets and magic foods, such as ginseng, with the critical eyes of a scientist. Slimming claims are analysed and myths about low-calorie foods, diets and appetite suppressors like starch blockers, slimming teas, and stomach fillers are explored. Finally, he points the way to a healthful, fad-free diet by offering simple, easy to follow guidelines based on the best scientific research. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
