Part of this book is a detailed analysis of food research, which the author believes has led to unwarranted hysteria over food safety. Gebo correctly notes that most of the studies have used megadoses of test substances on animals and scientists are now saying that the megadoses itself, rather than the substance, produces harmful results such as cancer. Michael F. Jacobson & others' Safe Food ( LJ 7/91) offers much of this same material, such as selecting, handling, and preparing safe and healthy food, and details information on natural toxins in food and pesticides. What's Left To Eat? covers the problems of cholesterol and heart disease, salt and hypertension, fiber and cancer, and calories and your weight, most of which is available in other popular medical books. Recipes are given, but none that are really new. References are current and well researched. An optional purchase for large popular nutritional collections. (Index not seen.)-- Loraine F.
