Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Though food is supposed to be one of life's simple pleasures, few things cause more angst and confusion. Every day we are bombarded with come-ons for the latest diet, promises for "clinically proven" miracle ingredients, and warnings about contaminants in our favorite foods. It's enough to give anybody indigestion.

Packed with useful-and surprising-information, Coffee Is Good for You cuts through the clutter to reveal what's believable and what's not in a fun and easily digestible way.

You'll find out:

  • Locally grown produce isn't necessarily more healthful than fruits and vegetables from across the globe
  • Alcohol does cause breast cancer
  • You don't need eight glasses of water a day for good health
  • Milk isn't necessary for strong bones
  • Oatmeal really can lower cholesterol
  • Sea salt isn't more healthful than regular salt
  • Low-fat cookies may be worse for you than high-fat cheese
