isbn: 97817866072160 is about food fads like the people who only eat steamed fish* to avoid getting cancer and who then get cancer.
So this is book that delves into the dubious area of food ‘science’ which has huge number of loonies and hollywood stars (my blog) who somehow get attracted to living on air or smelling there poo (my blog). It is not particularly well written compared with Goldacre (my blog) but since its dealing with people making money rather than advancing science i suppose it will do.
The blog is written in the same style. It is not completely useless as i got the low down as to why people think white bread is bad its a mentally retarded view..
The sugar chapter is also interesting.
Newpaper reporting gets it in the neck too.
*even in restaurants when it is not on the menu – such people do exist..
