    Is chocolate heart-healthy? Does yogurt prevent type 2 diabetes? Do pomegranates help cheat death? News accounts bombard us with such amazing claims, report them as science, and influence what we eat. Yet, as Marion Nestle explains, these studies are more about marketing than science; they are often paid for by companies that sell those foods. Every corner of the food industry knows how to turn conflicted research into big profit. It's time to put public health first. Unsavory Truth reveals how the food industry manipulates nutrition science - and suggests what we can do about it.

    How we choose which foods to eat is growing more complicated by the day, and the straightforward, practical approach of What to Eat has been praised as welcome relief. As Nestle takes us through each supermarket section - produce, dairy, meat, fish - she explains the issues, cutting through foodie jargon and complicated nutrition labels and debunking the misleading health claims made by big food companies. With Nestle as our guide, we are shown how to make wise food choices - and are inspired to eat sensibly and nutritiously.
