Editors: Marlene R. Bishop
Book Description:
This new book examines the effects on health of the consumption of what might be termed three extremely widely-consumed anti-nutrition foods: chocolate, fast food and sweeteners. These and similar anti-nutrition foods are low cost in price but high cost in health damage. They are marketed without mercy, consumed with gusto, and help hospital and doctor billing.
