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 twenty short, myth-busting chapters, Spector reveals why almost everything we’ve been told about food is wrong.
