Spoon-Fed: Why almost everything we've been told about food is wrong
Foyalty 39

Spoon-Fed: Why almost everything we've been told about food is wrong (Paperback)

£12.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Is salt really bad for you? Is fish good for you? What about coffee, red meat, or saturated fats? Can pregnant women rely on their doctor's advice about what to eat? Does gluten-free food carry any health benefits at all? Do doctors know anything about nutrition?



In the course of research, Tim Spector has been shocked to discover how little scientific evidence there is for many of our most deep-rooted ideas about food. In twenty-two short, myth-busting chapters, he reveals why almost everything we've been told about food is wrong. He reveals the scandalous lack of good science behind many medical and government food recommendations, and how the food industry holds sway over these policies and our choices. These are urgent issues that matter not just for our health as individuals but for the future of the planet.



Spoon-Fed forces us to question every diet plan, official recommendation, miracle cure or food label we encounter, and encourages us to rethink our whole relationship with food.
