Which is healthier: beef or tuna? Margarine or butter? Wine or beer? The truth is, it's not always obvious which foods are good for you and which ones aren't. Foods that Harm, Foods that Heal sets the record straight with authoritative entries on foods from apples to zucchini. Learn which ones can fight cancer, free you from pain, slow the aging process, sharpen your mind, and help you sleep. Find out the secret health benefits of coffee, chocolate, nuts, and shrimp. And discover the little-known hazards of fruit juice, grilled foods, energy bars, and fast-food salads. Ailment entries tell which foods help -- or hurt -- health conditions from allergies to diabetes to ulcers. And special features explain everything you need to know about low-carb diets, trans fats, omega-3 fatty acids, the glycemic index, and more. Let food be your medicine, and let Foods that Harm, Foods that Heal show you how. Book jacket.
