Great, informative read!
It's so refreshing to read a well-written book that challenges our culture's food myths so effectively. We are inundated with (questionable) information about health and diet to the point of not knowing what to believe. Mr. Davis presents great arguments, backed with sound research and devoid of a personal agenda. He takes us back full-circle to what we have been hearing for a long time: Eat well. Exercise often. Practice moderation. Don't believe everything you hear. Amazing how that line of thinking turns out to be true time and again.
