Audible Editor Reviews

"Everything You Know About Calories Is Wrong", by Rob Dunn, is an article from the September 2013 issue of Scientific American, which posits that digestion is far too complex a process to be reduced to an exact number. Narrator Mark Moran’s welcoming tone is a perfect match for Dunn’s intelligently written and entertaining piece that touches on how the evolution of plants and humans, industrial food processing, and the way meals are prepared all play crucial factors in the way we digest our calories.
