Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy

Drawing on the latest nutrition research, Dr. Willett has written Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy as an alternative - and antidote - to the flawed new USDA Pyramid. Willett cogently explains how proper nutrition contributes to better health and longer life. The book describes exciting new work on the cardiovascular benefits of n-3 fatty acids, which are found in nuts and some oils; on the cancer-fighting substance lycopene, found in tomatoes; on the potential hazards of consuming too much calcium; and on the value of a daily multivitamin. In addition, it features a full range of recipes by dietitian and food writer Maureen Callahan.
