Food is supposed to be one of life’s simplest comforts, so why does one’s diet cause so much angst and confusion? Every day we’re bombarded with news about the latest diet, promises for “clinically proven” miracle ingredients and warnings about contaminants in our favorite foods. It’s enough to give even the most zealous gourmand a serious case of indigestion.
Packed with tons of useful and surprising information, Coffee is Good for You by Robert J. Davis, Ph.D., cuts through the clutter to reveal the truth about your diet. Inside, you’ll find out that alcohol does cause breast cancer, you don’t need to drink eight glasses of water a day, milk isn’t necessary for strong bones, oatmeal really can lower cholesterol and more!

Being fairly well read in subjects like this, I found this book to be a little shallow with answers on the order of a shrinking television soundbite size.
