Salt. Sugar. Fats.We spend trillions on health globally, but what haven't you been told? Just how bad are our diets, and just how good are the natural products we reach for? A compelling investigation into 'bad' foods and natural supplements. Discover what the science really says NATURAL SUPPLEMENTS: DO THEY WORK? You know the drill: we live demanding urban lives, we don't see the sun, we eat highly processed foods because we are too busy to cook from scratch, and we know we are not as healthy as we could be. So we pop a pill. The elixir of life in an oil-filled capsule. Or is it? As bestselling author and investigative journalist Ian Wishart discovers, virtually everything we know about health is being turned on its head. New medical studies are bringing salt, fat and even dairy in from the cold - could the dominant health message of the past 50 years be wrong? REVIEWS OF EARLIER BOOKS: "My first degree was in Human Biology, and now as an Associate Professor I teach courses on evidence and research methodology...I came to the book familiar with Wishart's science books. I knew he would be readable, courteous, firm, and well referenced.
Wishart is well acquainted both with the science and the politics of medicine. He presents the science so that non-technical people can see the point, and technical people can have precision and detail." - Ivan Lowe, University of Tunis "I strongly recommend this book.
