In this book, highly qualified health specialists examine the current cholesterol scare and the overall state of American nutrition. They clear up common misconceptions by explaining in clear, concise language the recent scientific research on cholesterol, fluoridation of water, hormone treatments in meat, tropical oils, and other health issues publicized by the media. They debunk, for example, the popular myth that cholesterol levels can be significantly affected by altering diet. Unfortunately, the book's final section is a hodgepodge of information on obesity, dieting, exercise, eating disorders, etc., all available elsewhere. Nevertheless, this is a provocative addition to the literature and is a must purchase for a balanced health collection.
