Advance Praise for the new edition:
"This book can be used as a filter for ‘junk science,’ which clutters many information resources and causes a lot of confusion among the public…the guide is a "go to" resource when trying to sort fact from fiction in response to the burgeoning nutrition information that is everywhere."
-Penny M. Kris-Etherton, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Nutrition, The Pennsylvania State University
