My Favorite Book for Summer 2014: What a Surprise!
If you want to know why the food industry and Michelle Obama have it so wrong and why obesity is the public health problem it is, then read this HISTORY book. No, this is not a diet book, it is a history of how we have gotten this food pyramid that is so hard on women especially after they turn 40. It is an answer to overweight children and metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance etc.
Correlation and consensus substituted for the rigorous clinical studies and tested science is not something to base school lunch programs and recommendations from healthcare providers to promote and inflict on the general public. What about all those studies like the Women’s Health Study and the Framingham Study that are often quoted and analyzed and reported in the popular press? Read this book, think about it and share it.
I could not put this down until I finished it. I enjoyed sipping my coffee with heavy cream while I read this book.
