Is red wine good or bad for you? Can certain foods stop you needing glasses? Is it worth drinking eight glasses of water a day? Which foods are aphrodisiacs, and which are just passion killers? Why do some people appear to eat as they like, yet never put on weight? Do detox diets really work? It's time to find out. The Truth About Food is the biggest-ever investigation of its kind. For the very first time, all the common myths about food have been put to the test in the science lab and in real-life trials, in order to prove once and for all which are fact and which are merely fiction. Whether exploring spinach, soya, omega-3 or dairy products, this landmark book reveals the truth, and nothing but the truth, about the effects of food on our bodies.
