Cutting through the lies and confusion dished up on a daily basis by a sensationalized media, An Apple a Day serves up the truth about what you're putting into your body, and what it's doing to you.
Bestselling author and chemistry professor Joseph Schwarz dismantles the misconceptions surrounding today's fad diets and food trends. With quick wit and scientific fact An Apple a Day will become your greatest defence against the continuous bombardment of conflicting information, and allow you to better understand the food you eat and the science behind it.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A sensible, rational overview of the natural chemistry of what we eat."

* BBC Focus *

"food science is made comprehensible, the fads deflated and the truth established"

* Lovereading.co.uk *

"An entertaining guide through the tangle of conflicting research studies, advertising claims, special interest groups, age-old myths and popular opinion that make diet a cloudy subject. ... leaves readers with a rational framework for evaluating the complex nature of foods and how they affect health."

* Library Journal *

"Readers will not need a PhD in chemistry to follow along; Schwarcz wisely limits technical terms to the minimum while explaining the chemistry involved in digestion."

* Publishers Weekly *

"A great book. A reference every eater might want to have on hand, especially to help debunk annoying and fuilt-inducing myths."

* Toronto Star *

"Fascinating"

* The Good Book Guide *
