The first edition of Foods That Harm, Foods That Heal changed the way we view food and its impact on our bodies. More than 7 million copies of the book have been sold worldwide since then, and interest in food as medicine has only grown as researchers have continued to discover the crucial connections between diet and chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and other serious illnesses, as well as the impact of food on stress, insomnia, and other common complaints.
In this completely revised, updated, and redesigned edition, you'll find:
More than 90 health condition entries from arthritis to insomnia to heart disease
Almost 150 food entries from apples to zucchini, including fast food, additives, and more
Simple ways to eat, cook, and store each food
Food-medicine interactions to be aware of
Sidebars on everything from the new USDA Food Plate to the many benefits of vitamin D, probiotics and super foods like goji berries and acai.
A trusted friend in a complicated world, Reader’s Digest brings big ideas to your kitchen table, shares stories you can’t put down, offers clever ways to live your life and the chance to laugh and cry together about what makes us all human.
